KAVA’s key service provider, Zoho Corporation (Zoho), is a global provider of award-winning CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and other online business, productivity and collaboration applications. Zoho’s head office is in the United States, and it complies with both the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor framework and the TRUSTe Privacy Program.
As a customer of KAVA, you agree to comply with Zoho’s policies as listed in Section 3 below.
This policy explains how KAVA handles personal information and complies with the requirements of the Australian Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (“Privacy Act”). If you have any questions in relation to this policy, please contact us at email@example.com .
Collection of Personal Information
Personal information is information or an opinion about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable.
KAVA collects and holds personal information from customers, employees, contractors, suppliers and other individuals. We collect and hold this information when it is related to KAVA’s business purposes. KAVA does not knowingly collect, hold or use sensitive personal information unless our customers provide that information to us.
The main types of personal information KAVA collects and holds relate to the contact details and organisational roles of our customers, prospects, suppliers and other business contacts. Typically, this information includes names, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, job titles, photographs (for use within our CRM system), web site details and social media profiles.
We collect most information directly from individuals when we deal with them. The personal information we collect may be provided in forms filled out by individuals, face-to-face meetings, email messages, telephone conversations or by third parties. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that contact.
Additionally, in providing services and solutions to our customers, we may collect, hold and use customer data that contains personal information of their customers and contacts. This customer-supplied data is used for uploading/migrating customer’s data to KAVA’s CRM solutions, and for backup and recovery purposes if needed.
We may also collect personal information from:
Use of Personal Information
The main purposes for which we collect, hold and use personal information are:
If you choose not to provide us with personal information, we may be unable to do such things.
We may collect, hold and use personal information about individuals to market our services, including by email. However, individuals always have the opportunity to elect not to receive further marketing information from us. This can be done by either using the unsubscribe function in an email to notify us that you do not want to receive further marketing information from us by email, or by contacting us directly to make such a request.
Employee records are not generally subject to the Privacy Act and therefore this policy may not apply to the handling of information about employees by KAVA. For information about our practices relating to employee information, please contact us directly.
Disclosure of Personal Information
KAVA does not routinely disclose personal information to other organisations unless:
KAVA uses a range of service providers to help us maximise the quality and efficiency of our services and our business operations. This means that individuals and organisations outside of KAVA will sometimes have access to personal information held by KAVA and may collect or use it from or on behalf of KAVA. This may include, but is not limited to,
Transfer of Information Outside of Australia
In providing our KAVA solutions to our customers, we need to provide personal information to persons or organisations located overseas. The collection, use and disclosure relating to this is as described in the sections above
When selecting overseas service providers who will have access to personal information, we chose recognised and proven providers that:
Privacy on Our Web Sites
This policy also applies to any personal information we collect via our websites. In addition to personal information you provide to us directly (such as where you make a request or complete a registration form), KAVA may also collect personal information from you via its websites.
If you are concerned about cookies, most browsers recognise when a cookie is offered and permit you to opt out of receiving it. If you are not sure whether your browser has this capability, you should check with the software manufacturer or your internet service provider. In most cases, you can refuse a cookie and still fully navigate KAVA websites.
In order to properly manage our websites, we may log certain statistics about the users of the facilities, for example the users’ domains and browser types. None of this information specifically identifies an individual.
Whenever a registered member (such as a KAVA customer) logs in to our websites, they will be identified by their user name and password. The information we collect about members’ use of our websites may be used for measuring use and performance and in assisting to resolve any technical difficulties.
Security of Personal Information
KAVA will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information which we hold about you, whether electronically or in hard-copy, and to keep this information accurate and up to date. KAVA strives to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personal information of our customers.
We use a combination of physical security measures including restricting physical access to our offices and files as well as electronic security of our systems to keep personal information secure from misuse, loss or unauthorised use or disclosure. Unfortunately, with internet-based systems, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
For details about security related to the CRM solutions provided by KAVA, please refer to Zoho’s Security Practices, Policies and Infrastructure (https://www.zoho.com/security.html).
Some or all personal information may be available to the directors and authorised staff of KAVA for use in accordance with this policy. Access to personal information is provided on a need-to-know basis and we require our staff to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by KAVA.
Access to Information
We will provide access to personal information upon request by an individual, except in the limited circumstances in which it is permitted for us to withhold this information (for instance, where granting access would infringe another person’s privacy).
When you make a request to access personal information, we will require you to provide some form of identification (such as a driver’s licence or passport) so we can verify that you are the person to whom the information relates.
If at any time you want to know what personal information we hold about you, you may contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Corrections and Concerns
If you believe that information we hold about you is incorrect or out of date, or if you have concerns about how we are handling your personal information, please contact us and we will try to resolve those concerns.
If you wish to have your personal information deleted, please let us know and we will take reasonable steps to delete it (unless we need to keep it for legal, auditing or internal risk management reasons).
Effect of Policy
KAVA operates in a dynamic business environment and we aim to review this policy annually to keep it current.
The amended policy will apply between us whether or not we have given you specific notice of any change.
