Australian (formerly, ‘National’) Privacy Principles (“APPs”) are part of the Privacy Act 1988 and regulate the way in which organizations may collect, use or disclose an individual’s personal information.
Personal information means information or an opinion (whether or not true, and whether or not recorded) about an identified individual, or about an individual who is reasonably identifiable.

We may also use your personal information for direct marketing of research services and products.
While some contacts with us such as general enquiries may be made anonymously or by using a pseudonym, if the relationship is to progress any further (by you becoming a client or having a business relationship with us) it will be necessary for us to know who you are. Similarly, we cannot deal with complaints made anonymously or by pseudonym.

Related entities and outsourcing
We will not make the personal information gathered using our products and services available to anyone outside of TradeSetUp or its related companies except as instructed by you or where required or permitted by law.
We may disclose your personal information to our related companies, but only so those related companies can assist us with functions relating to our business activities.
If we use third-party service providers, these service providers may have access to your personal information to perform contractually specified services on our behalf. TradeSetUp contractually requires that all personal information accessed by such providers be kept confidential and in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles.
Links to other websites

Security and quality of personal information
We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that any personal information about you which we hold is:
a) Secure: protected from misuse, interference and loss and from unauthorized access, modification or disclosure; and
b) Appropriate: accurate, complete, up-to-date, relevant and not misleading having regard to the purpose for which it is held.
Your personal information may be kept in both hard and soft copy at our offices and offices of relevant third party providers and may be accessible in soft copy at our related company offices.
We and our related company offices operate secure data networks protected by industry standard firewalls and have password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary.
We restrict access to personal information to our employees, and contracted third party providers who need to know that information in order to process it for us and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations. They may be disciplined or their contract terminated if they fail to meet these obligations. Our access to your personal information is limited to the following departments for their respective purposes: Finance, Customer Services, IT, Sales, Marketing Services, and Compliance (including the Privacy Officer). The Finance and IT Departments at our related company offices may also have access to your personal information.
We will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify personal information if we no longer need it for any authorised purpose and are not required by law to retain it.
A cookie is a small file which can be downloaded on a device when you access our website or App and is then sent back to our website or App each time you access our website or App. Cookies are useful because they allow us to recognize your device and your user preferences, gather basic tracking information (such as login and password, date, time of visit and preferences), and monitor the presentation of our site. This information allows us to personalize the user experience and improve the quality of our site navigation.
We also use analytical cookies, which allow us to recognize and count the number of users on our website and App and how users move around the site and App when they are using it. This helps us improve the way the website and App work, for example by making sure users can easily find what they need.
Please note that advertisers on the TradeSetup.com.au website and TradeSetup App may also deploy cookies and web beacon technology to measure and improve the effectiveness of advertising for their clients.
If you do not want us to collect cookies, you may set your browser to block cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.
Access to your personal information
TradeSetup will handle all requests for access in accordance with the APPs. In most cases, we will give you access to any personal information that we hold about you within a reasonable period and in the manner you request, if that is reasonable. In some cases, we may refuse access where refusal is required by law. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, information that is only available on older backup tapes, or would involve developing a new system or significantly changing an existing practice), or which risk the privacy of others. We will provide you with reasons for any refusal. We may charge a reasonable fee for giving you access to your personal information, however at present we do not propose to make any charge.
To request access to your personal information please contact us: email@example.com
Correction of your personal information
We appreciate any assistance you might give us to keep any personal information that we hold up-to-date, complete and accurate. If you want to update any personal information, you may do so by contacting us: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will, on request, normally amend any of your personal information which is inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date, irrelevant or misleading (without cost to you) where:
a) We are satisfied that the information needs to be corrected; and/or
b) We agree with your request that the information be corrected.
If we disagree with your request, we will write to inform you of our concerns about making the change you have requested, giving reasons for our refusal and notifying you of available complaint mechanisms. If you wish, we will then (at no cost to you and within a reasonable period), take reasonable steps to associate with the appropriate records of your personal information a statement that you claim the information is inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date (whichever is relevant) and that you have requested a particular change.
If you wish to make a complaint or a query, you should contact us at www.tradesetup.com.au or speak to one of our employees.
