This policy explains how our organisation collects and manages the personal data of natural persons, including retained data.
- Personal data means any information that is related to you that reveals your identity. It does not apply to personal data that has been rendered anonymous so that you are no longer identifiable. Nor does it apply to the processing of personal data which concerns legal (non-natural) persons.
- Our organisation means Tap into Safety Pty Ltd and includes any parent, subsidiaries and affiliates.
- Our clients means legal persons (e.g. companies) who purchase and use our products and services.
What We Do
We are an Australian-based technology company, providing developed software products and services to domestic and international customers (our clients). Personal data may be disclosed to overseas recipients (our clients based outside of Australia), who are entitled to disclosure. We develop specialised health and safety software applications to address problems and critical risks relating to unique work environments. Our safety training software is used on mobile devices and the web for increased accessibility.
We may give our staff and third party business partners, access to your personal data for the purpose of delivering our software products to our clients in Australia or overseas. We will require them (and our clients) to comply with this Policy.
What Information We Collect
We collect and process personal data in connection with our commercial activities with our clients, which are legal persons, and only by lawful and fair means. We estimate that around 50 percent of the personal data we collect is de-identified.
NOTE: Data protection does not apply to the processing of personal data rendered anonymous.
Our clients’ workers create their own account on our system and complete online assessments in their own time. When you create your own online account on our system, you provide us with personal data (e.g. your name, birthdate, email address). We may also receive your personal data from our clients, which use our software and which you work for, and who will notify you of this.
NOTE: We do NOT collect, process or use the personal data of children.
Why We Collect Information
When you log onto our system to use our software as part of your mandatory workplace safety training, we collect personal data so that we can track and accurately gauge how you can identify and control hazards within the workplace. Results are tracked in real time via our comprehensive reporting platform. We then report your monitored behaviour to our client and your name is identified with the data.
Your use of our mental health software is VOLUNTARY and an account can only be created by YOU! The only personal data we receive is what you give us when you set up your account and you are able to select your own filters, including using a pseudonym, if you do not wish to identify yourself. Data is collected to identify and address early indicators of stress anxiety and depression. Results are de-identified. The purpose is to improve mental health in the workplace. The data is not personal data because it cannot be linked back to you.
NOTE: We do NOT sell or lease or transfer your data to anyone else.

Where you have given consent, processing of personal data shall be allowed, irrespective of compatibility of the purposes, as long as it is not incompatible with a legal, professional, or other binding obligation of secrecy.
