We take your privacy very seriously and are committed to ensuring the protection of your personal information. Each member of the X2M Connect group collects and handles your personal information in accordance with its legal obligations, including those under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
X2M Connect Limited and its subsidiaries (the X2M Group) provide a wide range of utility based services, operates websites and conducts its own corporate operations (the Services).
This Statement describes how your personal information is collected and handled by the members of the X2M Group.
If you are located in the European Union or the United Kingdom, you should not use the Services as the X2M Group does not comply with the European Union or United Kingdom General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
1. The Information We Collect And Store
We may collect and store the following information when running the Services:
Information You Provide. We may collect some personal information, such as your name, phone number, email address and home and business postal addresses.
Files. We collect and store the files you upload, download, or access with the Services (“Files”).
Log Data. When you use the Services, we automatically record information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the Services. This may include the Device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, the web page visited before you came to our website, information you search for on our website, locale preferences, identification numbers associated with your Devices, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, metadata concerning your Files, and other interactions with the Services. When you use the Services, we may automatically collect certain data regarding your usage of utility resources.
2. How We Use Personal Information
Personal Information. In the course of using the Services, we may collect personal information that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”).
Personal Information is or may be used: (i) to provide and improve our Services, (ii) to administer your use of the Services, (iii) to better understand your needs and interests and (iv) to personalize and improve your experience. We will not use your Personal Information for purposes other than the Services.
Geo-Location Information. Some Devices allow applications to access real-time location-based information (for example, GPS). Our mobile apps do not collect such information from your mobile device at any time while you download or use our mobile apps as of the date this policy went into effect, but may do so in the future with your consent to improve our Services. Some photos and videos you place in the Services may contain recorded location information. We may use this information to optimize your experience.
If you do not wish to share files embedded with your geo-location information with us, please do not upload them. If you don’t want to store location data in your photos or videos, please consult the documentation for your camera to turn off that feature. Also, some of the information we collect from a Device, for example IP address, can sometimes be used to approximate a Device’s location.
Analytics. We also collect some information (ourselves or using third party services) using logging, such as IP address, which can sometimes be correlated with Personal Information. We use this information for the above purposes and to monitor and analyze use of the Services, for the Services’s technical administration, to increase our Services’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to verify users have the authorization needed for the Services to process their requests.
3. Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your Use. Any information you choose to provide should reflect how much you want others to know about you. Please consider carefully what information you disclose and your desired level of anonymity. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of X2M Connect Limited’s Rights. We may disclose to parties outside X2M Connect Limited files stored in your Services and information about you that we collect when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with a law, regulation or compulsory legal request; (b) protect the safety of any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of X2M Connect Limited or its users; or (d) to protect X2M Connect Limited’s property rights. If we provide your X2M Connect Limited files to a law enforcement agency as set forth above, we will remove X2M Connect Limited’s encryption from the files before providing them to law enforcement. However, X2M Connect Limited will not be able to decrypt any files that you encrypted prior to storing them on X2M Connect Limited.
Non-private or Non-Personal Information. We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personal information, such as usage statistics of our Services.
