Privacy & Data Protection Policy
It sets out how your personal data is collected and used when you register for and use our service (“Services”).
SupporterHub is the controller of your data.
We respect your privacy and so all personal data is collected and processed to the highest standard in compliance with current data protection legislation.
Where you can get more information
If you have any questions on this policy please contact us here.
We may update this policy from time to time and would encourage you to revisit it regularly to check you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from 25 May 2018.
Data that we will collect
In order to apply for and to use the Services, we will need to collect some personal data about you. This personal data may include your name and contact details and other information that identifies you personally and that you provide when you register for an account and use the Services. We may also collect additional information if you provide us with feedback on the Services or you use our Service Portal.
Retention of your data
We will retain your data until you tell us you no longer wish to use the Services and for a period of seven years thereafter, as required by law.
How we use your data
We need to process your personal data to provide the Services you request in the form that you require. Your data will be used in the following ways:
- to provide you with the Services – which involves processing your data in order to set up, administer and maintain your account and all records relating to it
- to communicate with you about your account and the Services
- to enable us and third parties on our behalf to carry out technical, logistical or other functions to support the Services and the technical and management systems upon which they rely
- to enable us and third parties on our behalf to monitor website use and traffic patterns and carry out data analysis with regard to the Services in order to improve the Services and for our internal business purposes
- to enable us to conduct marketing activities if you have consented to these as described below
Disclosures of your information
In order to provide the Services, we may need to pass on your data to other companies within the SupporterHub group of companies who help us perform the Services.
Data may also be provided to the following classes of suppliers for us to provide the Services:
- Payment processors
- Document storage companies
- Loyalty scheme administrators
- Marketing agencies
- Partner organisations that supply services include in our products
We may also share your data with fraud prevention agencies to help prevent fraud and money laundering and to verify your identity.
When we and fraud prevention agencies process your personal data, we do so on the basis that we have a legitimate interest in preventing fraud and money laundering, and to verify identity, in order to protect our business and to comply with laws that apply to us. Such processing is also a contractual requirement of the Services you have requested.
We, and fraud prevention agencies, may also enable law enforcement agencies to access and use your personal data to detect, investigate and prevent crime. You may be refused certain services, finance or employment as a result of this.
Fraud prevention agencies can retain your personal data for different periods of time, and if you are considered to pose a fraud or money laundering risk, your data can be held by them for up to six years.
Marketing and Preferences
If you have specifically opted in during the application or registration process with us, your personal data will be used to send you emails and marketing communications depending upon the marketing preferences that you opted for.
You may opt out or change your marketing preferences at any time by contacting us.
Overseas transfers of data
Since SupporterHub operates globally, your data may be transferred to affiliates and third parties outside of Australia to countries that do not have as strong data protection laws as are in place within the Australian Privacy Act. This is in order that we can provide the services to you. In particular email communications that you receive may be provided via a US based supplier.
In any such cases we will ensure that strict contractual protection applies in order to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place.
