Non-Personal Information

A cookie is a small text file placed on to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are used to enhance the online experience – for example, "session cookies" are created at the beginning of the user's search session and discarded at its conclusion. The cookie is not used to collect or store information about the user, only to allocate a temporary identifier to the search session. Without the session identifier, the user might lose the entire search context each time a new page is visited during a session.

Most web browsers recognise when a cookie has been offered or placed on your computer. Most web browser software enables you to decide whether you wish to reject or accept the cookie. Check with your software supplier if you are not sure. If cookies are disabled, you may find this website provides less optimal functionality and speed, for the reasons described above.

We do not use cookies to identify you personally, to connect your personal identity with your computer address or to track the navigational or browsing habits of visitors.

Our privacy policy: Our general privacy policy can be found on this website at www.aptus.systems, and you can request a hard copy from us at any time by contacting us as noted above. Our privacy policy contains details of how you can:

Are there laws that require us to collect personal information? No, but we cannot manage our relationships with customers, contractors, suppliers and others unless we do so. Also, for insurance, legal and tax purposes we need to retain the information on our files after completion of our work

Purposes of collection of personal information: We collect personal information so that we can supply our products, deliver them as required, manage accounts with our customers and suppliers and to honour our contractual commitments.

We usually collect names, addresses, phone numbers and email details for contact and identification purposes. We may also collect credit card information.

Consequences if we are unable to collect the personal information we seek: If we are unable to collect the personal information we ask for, the likely consequences are that we may not be able to supply our products.

Disclosure of personal information to others: Generally, we will only disclose personal information we have collected to others where it would reasonably be expected by the individual or where required by law.

If you are a customer:

that will be able to more conveniently supply your needs.

Please note that, Aptus may from time to time outsource management of certain functions, such as:

In some such cases the external service provider may have access to your personal information. In such cases it is our policy to include, where commercially possible, provisions in the contract with the service provider that obliges the service provider to comply with our privacy policy and to comply with the Privacy Act and the Australian Privacy Principles.

Finally, we may also disclose your personal information to our professional advisers, such as our lawyers in any case where we need to seek advice or to a purchaser of our business or part of our business.

Other than in the context of a sale of our business or part of our business, we will not sell your personal information to third parties.

Your access rights to your personal information: Under the Privacy Act you have some rights of access to the personal information we hold about you, and the right to have it corrected if required. The right of access is qualified because there are some circumstances in which we can withhold some or all of the information we hold. See below for details on how you can request access.

Overseas disclosure of personal information: If you are a purchaser outside Australia, we may need to disclose your personal information to recipients in that country. The countries in which this might occur cannot be anticipated here – it will depend on where you are and where we have contractors or resellers convenient to you, from time to time. In all cases we require those parties to comply with our privacy policy. We will provide more information on request, on a case by case basis.
