Personal Information

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, or other information needed to provide a service you requested.

In general, you can use Phase N web sites without giving any personal information about yourself. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which parts of our website you visit and how long you use our website for, but we do not record a relationship between your IP address and any personal information.

Certain public services, such as contact forms, submitting information for available positions, or making a purchase, may require you to enter certain personal information in order for us to fulfil your request. In general, we attempt to keep the amount of information you are required to provide to the minimum needed to effectively provide the service.

If, when providing personal information, you tell us that you do not want the information to be used beyond the immediate service requested, we will respect your wishes. If you give us personal information about somebody else, such as a spouse or work colleague, we will assume that you have their permission to do so.

Links to Third Party Websites

Phase N websites contain many links to other sites. We do not share your personal information with these websites, and are not responsible for their information or privacy practices. You should check their privacy policies where you have concerns about privacy.

Many web browsers contain a feature which allow websites to determine the URL of the last page visited on previous website before transferring to theirs. We attempt to ensure that personal information, and in particular security information, is not "leaked" to any third party site via this mechanism.

Account based Services

Access to certain Phase N services require a login and password. To provide you with these services, we may ask you for certain information as we need to allow you to use the services. More specific information on our use of this information may be provided at the time of collection.

In some cases where you have logged in to a particular account based service, your IP address may be linked to your authentication information as a security measure to ensure that, once logged in, the computer used to login is still the computer using the service, and not another computer pretending to be yours.

Sharing your Information

Your personal information is never shared outside Phase N without your permission, except under conditions explained below.

We may send your personal information to other companies or people under any of the following circumstances:

  • When we have your consent to share the information.
  • We need to share your information to provide a product or service you have requested.
  • We need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of us to provide a product or service to you.
  • When you have asked us to keep you up to date on the latest business, product or software announcements, or other information we think you'd like to hear from us, and this requires the use of external services. You will have been provided the ability to opt in or opt out in all such cases.

When sharing your information with these companies, we will provide them with the minimum information required for them to provide a service. Such companies shall forbidden from using your information for any other purpose.

Finally, we may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, in urgent or emergency circumstances, to protect personal or public safety, or to protect our websites.

Cookies and Tracking

A cookie is a small piece of information that web browsers allow websites to give to them, to be sent back on any subsequent attempts to get pages from the same website. This mechanism is designed to store unique keys or user ids. Your browser will not send these cookies to other websites, nor send cookies from other websites to us.

Some parts of Phase N websites may use cookies to determine your uniqueness (that you are the same person) throughout your visit, without specifically identifying who you are. This information is used to help us examine your use of our website, in order to improve it. You may disable or otherwise prevent the use of cookies to these parts of our websites without effecting the quality or use of them.

Account based services often use cookies to store a user id or session key, to identify you specifically when using an account based service. Cookies are required in this case, and disabling them may degrade these services, or prevent their use at all. When logging out of an account based service, we typically instruct your browser to destroy the cookie.

Minors

Certain countries mandate privacy rules for minors or children under a certain age. Our website is not intended for the use of minors under the age of 16. We do not knowingly solicit personal information from children under this age. Where laws specific to a particular country exist, and we are subject to them, we follow all such laws.

Changes to this Policy

Phase N Australia Pty Ltd will amend this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information we will make that information available by posting a notice on this site.

Questions and Feedback

If you have questions or concerns about our collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information, or you would like us to destroy any your personal information you no longer wish us to have, please email us at privacy@phase-n.com
