What is personal information?

By using the term “personal information” in this Privacy Policy, we mean any information that can be directly associated with or used to identify a specific person, “personal information” may be used interchangeably with the term “personal data”.

Personal information we collect and process

We collect personal information from a variety of sources, including information that you provide directly and information that we automatically collect when you access and use the Services. The types of personal information that we collect will vary depending on your dealings with us.

Personal information you provide

You may provide personal information to us and our third-party service providers through the Services, when you submit information through our websites, for example by completing an online form, when you apply for or inquire about employment with us, in the course of us providing you with a requested product, service or benefit, or when you e-mail, call, or otherwise communicate with us, including in person. The types of personal information you provide differ depending on how you choose to interact with us, but may include your name, email, phone number, address, and payment card or bank account information, or any other personal information you choose to provide to us.

Information collected automatically

We and our third-party service providers may collect information automatically from you when you access and use the Services. Such information may include personal information and includes the following:

Usage information

We may collect information about how you interact with the Services. This may include information such as the dates and time you visit the Services, the page you view, referring / exit URLS, your browser type, and the domain name of your internet service provider. In some cases, we may collect this information through cookies and similar technologies. To learn more about these technologies, please see the “Device Information, Cookies and Google Analytics” sections below.

Device Information

We may collect information about the devices you use to access the Services, including your device make and model, IP address, inferred geolocation information, operating system, and unique device identifiers.

Cookies

Our websites use cookies to track user traffic patterns and to better serve you when you revisit a website. A cookie is a small data file that a website may write to your hard drive when you visit it. A cookie file can contain information, such as a user ID which the website uses to track the pages you have visited. You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. However, full functionality for our websites requires the use of cookies.

Information is also generated whenever a page is accessed on our website that records information such as the time, date, and specific page. We collect such information for statistical and maintenance purposes that enables us to continually evaluate our website performance. Cookie use will vary between our sites, and products, please review the cookie statement on the site of product you use.

Google analytics

We may use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, together with other analytics services, in order to better understand your use of the Services and how we can improve them. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit a website, what pages you visit when you do so, and what other websites you used prior to coming to such website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit a website, rather than your name or other directly identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with your personal information. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit a website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google Analytics uses its cookie(s), and the information Google Analytics collects to track your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Services, and other websites. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Services are governed by the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy. Google may utilize the data collected to track and examine the use of the Services, to prepare reports on its activities, and share them with other Google services. To more fully understand how Google may use the data it collects through the Services, please review “How Google Uses Information From Sites or Apps That Use Our Services” (located here).

Where you have provided your consent  for us to hold and process your personal information (for example to provide you with updates on relevant products and services we may offer), to the extent permitted by applicable law, we will do so until you ask us not to.

Linked websites

For your convenience, some hyperlinks may be posted on the Services that link to other websites not under our control. We are not responsible for, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to, the privacy practices of those websites or pages not under our control or of any companies that we do not own or control. We do not endorse any of those websites or pages, the services or products described or offered on such sites or pages, or any of the content contained on those sites or pages.

Your rights as a Data Subject

Depending on your jurisdiction, and subject to applicable data protection laws, you, the Data Subject, may have a number of data protection rights such as: the right of access to your information; the right to delete, restrict/block, object to, amend/update or correct or port your personal information and the right to withdraw your consent for processing. More details regarding these rights are available on any form on this website where you are asked to enter any personal data. If you are using one of our products or services contracted by your employer, please contact your customer representative.

Exercising rights as a Data Subject

If you elect to exercise any of the rights listed above, including access, consent, or withdrawal of your consent for us to process your data, you can do so by contacting our Data Protection Officer using the contact details under Data Subject Requests below. If you are using one of SAI360 Products or Services contracted by your employer, please contact your customer representative. If a third party is involved in the processing of your personal data, we will pass on to them your request arising from the rights listed above, as applicable. Certain data protection laws (like those in Europe and California) make the distinction between those who act as “controllers” or “businesses” and those who act as “processors” or “service providers” of personal data. A controller determines how and why your personal information is to be used. A processor or service provider only processes personal data on behalf of the controller under the controller’s instruction.

For many of our services, our customers are the controller, and we are acting as their processor. It may be up to the controller to make sure you can exercise your rights over your personal data. If you have questions about how personal data is handled by our customers, you will need to review their privacy notices and, if necessary, contact them directly.

Residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and The United Kingdom

This portion of our Privacy Policy applies to our customers in the EEA and the United Kingdom only and applies to the extent of any inconsistency with the information above. All terms not otherwise defined in this section shall have the meanings as defined under applicable data protection laws.

Consent

We will make it clear if we rely on your consent to process your personal data and you are free to withdraw your consent at any time. If you wish to do so, Please contact us as described below in the section titled Data Subject Requests.

Legitimate interest

Another reason we might use your personal data is because we have, or a third party has a legitimate interest in doing so. We do so when responding to your inquiries about our products and services; to provide services and technical support to you; and to enable internal administrative processes, such as account administration.

Retention period

When we no longer need to process your personal data for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, we will delete your personal data from our systems. We therefore generally retain information when we have an ongoing legitimate business need for the information and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Providing your data

One reason we might use your personal data is because you’ve inquired into entering into a contract with us or you’ve entered into a contract with us, and we need to provide services under that contract. We may not be able to fulfill that contract if you choose not to provide us with your personal data.

Purpose of processing

When we process your personal data, we determine the purpose of the processing and act as a controller. We will primarily process personal data from the EEA and the United Kingdom to offer our products services, process payments, and to provide prospective customers with information about our products, in addition to other purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

Automated decision making

We do not engage in any automated decision making as a part of our Services.

Your right to rectification

We want our records to be as accurate as possible, so please advise us of any errors and we will make corrections accordingly. Although a difference of opinion or view does not necessarily mean that personal data is inaccurate. If you have a difference of opinion, we will do our best to add that opinion to our records.

Erasure and your right to be forgotten

Please contact us as described below in the section titled Data Subject Requests if you want us to delete your personal data. We will do our best to honor your request, but we may have an obligation to keep records for audit and legal purposes. We may also be able to “Restrict Processing” or delete specific information or a document, which we will do without undue delay, for example, where it has been sent to us in error.

Your right to object to processing

In certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our use of your personal data, such as if we are using your personal data for direct marketing; for our or a third party’s legitimate interests or the public’s interest; or for scientific or historical research and statistics. Please contact us as described below in the section titled Data Subject Requests if you would like us to do so.

Right to restrict processing

Under some circumstances, you may request that we limit how we use your data or “Restrict Processing”. Simply a difference of opinion or view does not necessarily justify a restriction, but we will always consider your opinion. We will always inform you before we lift any restriction.

Your right to access data

You have a right to receive a copy of your personal data from us. If you would like to do so, please contact us as described below in the section titled Data Subject Request and we will advise you of the next steps as soon as possible, and in no more than one month.

Right to data portability

At your request, we are happy to provide your personal data in a machine-readable or “portable” format so you can move it or store it wherever you want, subject to certain limitations. We can also send it to another controller where technically feasible. If you would like to do so, please contact us as described below in the section titled Data Subject Requests and we will advise you of the next steps.

Right to complain

If you have a complaint about how SAI360 uses your personal data, we hope that in the first instance you will contact us, and we will promptly address your concern.  However, you can always file a complaint with the supervisory authority in your jurisdiction.  For more information, please contact your local data protection authority (contact details for data protection authorities in the EEA are available at https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en; and contact details for the data protection authority in the UK are available at https://ico.org.uk/.

California residents’ privacy rights

This portion of our Privacy Policy advises California residents of rights provided in the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”), (as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (the “CPRA”), effective January 1, 2023) and how California residents may exercise those rights. The CCPA currently exempts personal information reflecting a written or verbal business-to-business communication (“B2B Personal Information”) from certain of the law’s requirements, and also currently exempts personal information collected and used about a natural person acting as a business’s employee or contractor (“Personnel Information”). The rights described below may not apply to B2B Personal Information or Personnel Information.

If you are a California resident, you may request certain information from or certain action by us, such as exercising the access and deletion rights described below, or you may authorize an agent to make such a request on your behalf. We will seek to verify your identity and your agent’s authority when we receive an individual rights request from you or on your behalf to ensure the security of your personal information and may need to collect additional personal information to do so.

  • complete your transaction;
  • provide you with a good or service;
  • perform a contract between us and you;
  • protect your security and prosecute those responsible for breaching it;
  • fix our Services in the case of a bug;
  • protect the free speech rights of you or other users;
  • protect the free speech rights of you or other users;
  • comply with a legal obligation; or

This portion of our Privacy Policy applies to our Australian customers only and, applies to the extent of any inconsistency with the information above.

This section explains how we handle personal information relating to individuals who are Australian customers, so as to ensure we meet any obligations under the Australian Privacy Act.

In this section, “personal information”, is defined in the Australian Privacy Act, and means information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably  identifiable, whether the information or opinion is true or not, or recorded in a material form or not. Personal information includes a person’s name, address, contact details, date of birth, gender, sexuality, and race.

Direct marketing

We will not use or disclose personal information for the purposes of direct marketing to you unless:

  • you have consented to receive direct marketing materials; or
  • you would reasonably expect us to use your personal details for this purpose; or
  • we believe you may be interested in the material, but it is impractical for us to obtain your consent.

In every instance, we will ensure that our direct marketing material incorporates an option for you to elect to receive no further such communications.

Please note also that even if you have requested not to receive further direct marketing communications, we may nevertheless continue to provide you with information about changes to our terms and conditions for the supply of goods or services, questionnaires, and other factual information. This form of communication is not regarded as “direct marketing” under the Australian Privacy Act.

Overseas disclosure

Personal information may be sent outside of Australia to our related bodies corporate, as permitted by the Australian Privacy Act, which are located in the United States of America. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the overseas recipients of your personal information do not breach our privacy obligations relating to your personal information. However, you should note that United States jurisdictions may not offer the same level of statutory privacy protection for personal information as Australia does. By providing your personal information to us, you consent to our disclosure of your personal information to these entities.

Access, correction, and further Information

We will take such steps as are reasonable to ensure that the personal information which we collect remains accurate, up to date and complete.

You may request access to any personal information we hold about you at any time by contacting to our Data Protection Officer via email: [email protected]

Upon such request we will endeavor to provide you with access to your personal information held by us unless we are permitted under the Australian Privacy Act to refuse to provide you with such access. Please contact us if you:

  • wish to have access to the personal information which we hold about you;
  • consider that the personal information which we hold about you is not accurate, complete, or up to date; or
  • require further information on our personal information handling practices.

There is no charge for requesting access to your personal information, but we may require you to meet our reasonable costs in actually providing you with access.

If you consider that the information which we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant, or misleading, we will take reasonable steps, consistent with our obligations under the Australian Privacy Act, to correct that information if you so request.

We will respond to all requests for access and/or correction within a reasonable time.

Complaints

If you have a complaint about the way in which we have handled any privacy issue, including your request for access or correction of your personal information, you should send to our Data Protection Officer via email: [email protected]

If you remain unsatisfied with the way in which we have handled a privacy issue, we suggest you approach an independent advisor or contact the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner for guidance on alternative courses of action which may be available. We will provide our full cooperation in the event that you elect to pursue this course of action.
