2.2 Navigational Information
Navigational information refers to information about your computer, mobile phone and your visits to our websites and applications such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, duration of visit and pages viewed. Some of this information may be considered personal information.
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies can also be used for online behavioural target advertising and to show adverts relevant to something that the user searched for in the past.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify the settings in your browser to decline cookies if you prefer.
If you do choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of our websites or the pages you visit. By tracking the websites and pages you visit, we are able to understand the most popular or most used areas of our websites.
We collect personal information in a number of ways. The most common ways we collect your personal information are:
directly from you when you provide it to us via our websites; and
from third parties (for example, from referees if you apply for a position as a provider with us).
The purposes for which we use and disclose your personal information will depend on the circumstances in which we collect it. We may use or disclose your personal information:
for the purposes for which we collected it (and related purposes which would be reasonably expected by you);
for other purposes to which you have consented; or as otherwise authorised or required by law.
In general, we collect, use and disclose your personal information so that we can do business with you and for purposes connected with our business operations.
Some of the specific purposes for which we collect, use and disclose personal information are:
to respond to you if you have requested information (including via our websites or via an email or other correspondence you send to us);
to provide services to you or to receive goods or services from you;
to contact you about any news and updates about our services
to administer surveys or other activities conducted, sponsored or managed by us or our business partners;

our accountants, insurers, lawyers, auditors and other professional advisers and agents;
to third parties that assist us in giving you the services;
otherwise to any third parties to whom you have directed or permitted us to disclose your personal information (e.g. referees);
in the event that we or our assets may be acquired or considered for acquisition by a third party, that third party and its advisors;
third parties that require the information for law enforcement or to prevent a serious threat to public safety;
to social media sites, like Facebook and Google. To do this, we securely match email addresses with the social media platform. The email addresses are only decipherable by the social media company if the email address is linked to an account on their site; and
otherwise as permitted or required by law.
We also provide third parties with statistical information about our users, but this information will not be used to identify any individual user.
In respect of any personal information disclosed to third party contractors, we will take steps to ensure that those contractors are required to keep such information confidential, and are authorised only to use personal information in order to provide the services or to perform the functions required by Acudocx, or to provide services to you.
We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. For example, we have appropriate physical (such as restricting access to our offices) and computer and network security measures (such as firewalls) in order to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. We also limit access to information to authorised employees and contractors who need to know that information.
However, no Internet, email or other electronic transmission is ever fully secure or error free, so you should take special care in deciding what information you provide.
You may seek access to personal information which we hold about you by contacting us. We will provide access to that information in accordance with the relevant law. If you become aware that any personal information we hold about you is incorrect or if you wish to update your information, please contact us.
If you provide us with your personal information, you have the following rights:
To review the information that you have supplied to us
To request that we correct any errors, outdated information, or omissions in user information that you have supplied to us
To request that your information not be used to contact you

us. When contacting us please provide as much detail as possible in relation to your question, comment or complaint. We will take any privacy complaint seriously and any complaint will be assessed with the aim of resolving any issue in a timely and efficient manner. We request that you cooperate with us during this process and provide us with any relevant information that we may need.
If you are in Australia, and if you are not satisfied with the outcome of our assessment of your complaint, you may wish to contact the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
In respect of our Australian company and the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), that entity may disclose personal information outside of Australia to external service providers located overseas so that they can provide us with
services in connection with the operation of our business, such as data storage services or online platforms for surveys to be conducted, and we may disclose personal information to our contractors who are located outside of Australia, in connection with the operation of our business.
We will keep your personal data for the period required by law, and for the duration of the relevant business or other relationship we have with you, or otherwise for as long as we do the activities we told you about. We may also retain personal data for a longer duration should we need to retain it to protect ourselves against legal claims, use it for analysis or historical record-keeping.
In deciding on any retention period, we will consider what type of information it is, the amount collected, how sensitive it might be and any legal requirements.
In relation to all of these rights, please contact Acudocx at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we may request proof of identity, and we reserve the right to charge a fee where permitted by law, especially if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. We will endeavour to respond to your request within all applicable timeframes.
