On occasion there may be a requirement to collect and store sensitive personal information from prospective employees or contractors such as criminal record searches. This data will be destroyed once it is no longer required or needed.
All reasonable steps will be taken that personal information will not be collected by any person who is known by the POS Works to be under the age of fifteen (15) without the consent of a parent or legal guardian.
Persons under age fifteen (15) may only provide personal information with the involvement and consent of a parent or legal guardian.

Generally speaking, the Personal Information we collect is used by us to operate POS Works. The Personal Information we collect about you is mostly used for performing our professional services, billing, identification, authentication, and for contacting you if we need to. This information can include your name, gender, date of birth, country of birth, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, and credit and banking details.
Where reasonable and relevant, we collect any special categories of personal data about you. This includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, criminal convictions, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data.
Personal information means information we hold about you from which your identity is either apparent or can be reasonably determined. We may collect non-personal information from you, such as browser type, operating system, and web pages visited to help us manage our website and services.
Many of our services, consultations, and meetings are recorded via notes. On rare occasions videocalls may also be recorded. Any images of people attending and participating in our services and/or meetings, or other recordings, for example as above, will not be used or shown in part for promotional purposes, resource material and commercial activities.
We may, with consent, use email addresses to share news, tips, updates and special offers. People who receive these promotional emails can unsubscribe at any time.
Other potential ways we may use your Personal Information:
We work with third-party services in Australia and the rest of the world (such as our web host, data backup and payment provider) that we allow access to Personal Information, and may use it on our behalf strictly for the purposes for which they are engaged. We minimise the amount of personal data that is utilised by these services, and we have ensured that these services process your data in accordance with the appropriate regulations.
We directly collect Personal Information if you send an enquiry to us from our website, get in touch with us by chat, email, or phone. We may also collect some Personal Information if you engage with us through a mutual associate referral.

All this information is used by POS Works for aggregated statistical analyses or systems administration purposes only. No attempt will be made to identify users of their browsing activities, except where required by or under law.
A “cookie” is a packet of information that allows the Company server to identify and interact more effectively with your computer.
When you access our web site, we send you a temporary or “session cookie” that gives you a unique identification number. A different identification number is sent each time you use our website. Cookies do not identify individual users, although they do identify a user’s Internet browser type and your Internet Service Provider. Shortly after you end your interaction with our website, the cookie expires. This means it no longer exists on your computer and therefore cannot be used for further identification or access to your computer.
Without cookies certain personalised services cannot be provided to users of our website, accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the Company website features if cookies have been disabled.
The POS Works website may contain links to other external sites. We are ultimately not responsible for the privacy practises or the content of such external websites. We encourage you to read and understand the privacy policies on those websites prior to providing any information to them.
We use personal information you provide only for purposes consistent with the reason you provided it, or for a directly related purpose. Generally, we will not use your personal information to market to you unless we have either your implied or express consent but in situations where it is impractical to obtain your prior consent, we will ensure you have an ability to opt out of such future communications.
We do not share your personal information with other organisations unless you give us your express consent, or where sharing is otherwise required or permitted by law, or where this is necessary on a basis to enable our contractors to perform specific functions.
Generally, POS Works will collect personal information directly from you, and only to the extent necessary to provide a product or service, or to carry out our internal administrative operations.
We may collect personal information from you when:
You may also be able to transact with us anonymously or use a pseudonym where this is lawful and practicable. We will collect personal information from you by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.
We will use your personal information only for the particular purpose that you provided it, or for a directly related purpose. We may otherwise use your personal information where that other use is:
We indirectly collect Personal Information when someone uses our services to record data about someone other than themselves.
This information can include names, genders, dates of birth, countries of birth, residential addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, a person’s emergency contacts, health insurance numbers, and patient treatment notes and records. This can include sensitive information such as health records.
From time to time we may use the non sensitive personal information we collect from you to advise you of, for example, conferences, events, products and/or services, which we believe may be of interest to you. We may then contact you to let you know about these products and services and how they may benefit you. We will generally only do this with your consent, and we will always give you a choice to opt out of receiving such information in the future.
Where we use your personal information to send you marketing information by email, SMS, MMS or other electronic means we may do so with your express or implied consent. You may give us your express consent by, for example, ticking a box on an electronic or paper form where we seek your permission to send you electronic or other marketing information.
Images of individuals in photographs or film are treated as personal information under the Privacy Act where the person’s identity is clear or can reasonably be worked out from that image. We uphold that all photographs and video footage of individuals will be used solely for POS Works related purposes. In accordance with the Privacy Act, an individual’s consent will be sought if the photograph or video records sensitive information about the individual. Where practically possible, POS Works will seek the consent of individuals in other cases. If you would like to have a video or still image removed from any material, please contact us using the contact details below.
Every personalised marketing contact sent or made by POS Works will include a means by which customers may opt out of receiving further marketing information. You may instruct us at any time to remove any previous consent you provided to receive marketing communications from us.
We have a strict duty to maintain the privacy of all personal information we hold about you. However, certain exceptions do apply. For example, where disclosure of your personal information is:
When we provide personal information to companies who perform services for us, such as specialist information technology companies or other contractors to the Company we require those companies to protect your personal information as diligently as we do.
It is inevitable that some personal information which we hold will become out of date. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information which we hold remains accurate and, if you advise us of a change of details, we will amend our records accordingly.
POS Works will, upon your request, and subject to applicable privacy laws, provide you with access to your personal information that is held by us. However, we ask that you identify, as clearly as possible, the type/s of information requested.
POS Works will deal with your request to provide access to your personal information in a reasonable time of receipt of your request.
POS Works will not charge you for lodging such a request but we may recover from you our reasonable costs incurred in supplying you with access to this information.
You can request access to the Personal Information you have provided to us, via email. This enables you to receive a copy of the data and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
If you think there’s a problem with the Personal Information we hold about you, you will either have the tools available to make these changes, or you can request a correction. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected (though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us).
If you want to request erasure of your Personal Information, we’ll take all reasonable steps to do so unless we are required to keep it for legal reasons, which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request. As we only collect information that is required, it is likely that revoking your consent will limit the functionality of your service.
Should you require to move your data to another service, you may request the transfer of your data (including Personal Information) to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party that you have chosen, your data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.
You may withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your Personal Information. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. This will be notified to you at the time of your request if applicable.
Your right to access your personal information is not absolute. In certain circumstances, the law permits us to refuse your request to provide you with access to your personal information, such as circumstances where:
All reasonable steps will be taken to keep secure any personal information, which is held or transmitted. Security measures are taken to protect your information from misuse, interference and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Where we have given you, or where you have chosen security codes (e.g username, password, memorable word or PIN), which enable you to use any online service, you are responsible for keeping these security details confidential.
On an regular basis, POS Works will perform a periodic technical and nontechnical evaluation that establishes the extent to which POS Works or POS Works’s business associate’s security policies and procedures meet the security guidelines of the Office of Australian Information Commission for the Australian Privacy Principles.
The public internet is not a secure method of transmitting information. Accordingly, no responsibility is accepted for the security of information you send to or receive from us over the internet or for any unauthorised access or use of that information.
Should POS Works discover a breach of data held, reasonable steps will be taken to notify those affected by the breach as soon as possible including how the breach occurred, possible effect and data affected, time of breach/es and remedies taken in accordance with Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme. To the extent permissible at law, in the event that there is a breach and indirectly collected information is at risk, we will follow the same protocol, however the affected Customers (rather than the individuals) will be notified instead.
If POS Works transfers personal information to countries outside Australia, we will only do so in compliance with all applicable Australian data protection and privacy laws.
POS Works will take reasonable steps to protect personal information no matter what country it is stored in or transferred to. We will have procedures and data transfer contracts as appropriate to help ensure this.
