to respond to requests or correspondence submitted by you;

For the avoidance of doubt, we will only use your Personal Data for purposes that you would reasonably expect us to use your Personal Data for in connection with providing the Services to you, or where we are required by law to collect your Personal Data. We will not sell, rent, or license your email address or any of your Personal Data.
We recognise your right under the Spam Act 2003 (Cth) and the GDPR to opt out from direct marketing, and as such these consents can be modified at any time by emailing the Privacy Officer or clicking unsubscribe on any direct marketing communications.
Please note certain non-marketing related correspondence from us, including messages relating to payment, will be automatically sent to you by virtue of your use of the Services and you may not have the option to unsubscribe from receiving this correspondence.

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third parties are bound by Australian privacy laws.
We may use de-identified wellbeing survey data, other survey data and data regarding use of our Services for purposes including research and analysis, case studies, marketing and improving and continuing to develop our Services.
YOUR RIGHTS TO YOUR INFORMATION
You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to maintain the truth, accuracy, and completeness of your information and your failure to do so may inhibit our ability to provide the Services to you. You acknowledge and agree that you remain solely responsible for maintaining the truth, accuracy, and completeness of your information at all times, and we shall have no liability to you or any third party arising from your failure to do the same.
In accordance with the GDPR, we acknowledge the additional rights of EU subjects to:
have their data erased that is no longer being used for a legitimate purpose;
request a copy of all Personal Data held about them in a readable format, along with supplementary information to verify that such Personal Data is being processed lawfully; and
request restricted processing of their Personal Data whilst any complaints or concerns are being resolved.
How we use your Personal Data for Direct Marketing is tightly controlled by the Privacy Act. We will follow those laws to ensure you only receive direct marketing in circumstances where you are expecting to. Under the Privacy Act we may use your Personal Data for the purposes of Direct Marketing if:
we collected the information directly from you; and
you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose your Personal Data for the purpose of direct marketing.
As set out above, we may use your Personal Data to provide you with information regarding our Services and your Usage Information to provide you with customised recommendations regarding use of our Services (either by email, SMS or through the Website/Apps).
Unless it would be impracticable or unreasonable, we need your consent when:
collecting your Personal Data from a third party for the purpose of Direct Marketing; or
you would not reasonably expect to receive the Direct Marketing.
We will not use or disclose your Personal Data for the purposes of Direct Marketing material if you have previously told us not to.
We protect your Personal Data through technical security measures i.e. firewalls, encryption that limit the risk of loss, disclosure, or unauthorised access. No security measures are, however, 100% secure so we cannot guarantee the security of your information or data at any time. To the extent permitted by law, we accept no liability for any breach of security, or direct hacking of our security measures, or any unintentional disclosure, loss or misuse of any information or data, or for the actions of any third parties that may obtain any information or data.
Notwithstanding the above, we acknowledge our obligation to report any data breach that is likely to risk the rights and freedoms of natural persons to the Australian Information Commissioner and, where our data breach involves the information of EU subjects, report to the European Data Protection Supervisor. We will also inform you, where possible, if your data has been breached in the circumstance where it poses a risk of serious harm or your rights and freedoms.
THIRD PARTY LINKS
We may, in the course of providing the services to you, transfer your Personal Data to overseas countries that are deemed by the EU Commission as having an ‘adequate’ level of Personal Data protection. Where we transfer data to a third party in a country where no adequacy decision has been made, we will take reasonable steps to ensure person or entity handling your data in those countries are bound under contract to meet the requirements of the Privacy Act, APPs, and GDPR (as applicable).
For the avoidance of doubt, we may transfer any data to an overseas third party with your express or implied consent, and the above condition only applies in the case of a data transfer or transmission to our related business entities in other countries.
