Children under 18 years of age are not permitted to use the Websites for any purpose and APT does not collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 18, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from a child under 18, please contact us.
Visitors to the Website
When you submit a request via the Contact or Request Information forms on the website you may voluntarily provide us with certain information about yourself. This can include name, email address, contact information, details of your request and any other information you provide us. We also collect records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses), if you contact us. If you’re visiting the Websites on your mobile device, you may also choose to provide us with location data.
Website Access Information
Like most website operators, APT collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request when visitors use the Websites. APT’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how APT’s visitors use or visit the Websites. From time to time, APT may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Websites. APT also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to the Websites. For instance, APT may monitor the Websites to help identify spam. We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioural tracking). APT may use publicly available information to match a user’s IP address with a corporate address to better understand user interest in the Websites.
In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using to access the Websites, including the type of device, the operating system, device settings, device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. To learn more about the information your device makes available to us, please review the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
We do not collect personal information automatically, but we may tie this information to personal information about you that we collect from other sources or you provide to us.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Pages of our Websites may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit the Company, for example, to count users who have visited those pages and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
How We Use Your Information
We use the information we collect to provide you full access and functionality of the Websites. Accordingly, your information may be used for the following purposes: (i) to provide and improve our services, features and content; (ii) to administer your use of our services and accounts; (iii) to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Websites; (iv) to better understand your needs and interests; (v) to fulfill requests or to respond to questions or comments you may make; (vi) to personalise your experience; (vii) to provide you with announcements, notifications and advertisements related to your interests and use of the Websites and other communications such as electronic newsletters, promotional e-mails or similar messaging; (viii) to provide service announcements; (ix) to protect against users seeking to hack into the Websites; (x) to assess the level of general interest in the Websites and (xi) for any other purpose with your consent.
How We Share your Information
We may disclose non-personally identifiable aggregated information about our users without restriction.
If you use the Websites to request a quote, we may share information, such as your name, email address, phone number, job site and specifics about your job with a third party contractor who are requested to use your information only to the extent reasonably necessary to respond to your request. [BD1]
Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we disclose the potentially personally-identifying information you disclose to APT only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide Websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country and by using the Websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations or as described above, we disclose personally-identifying only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of APT, third parties or the public at large. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if APT or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that APT goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of APT may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, we will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
We may also disclose your personally-identifying information if you expressly consent to the disclosure.
Your Access to and Control Over your Information
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
• Promotional Offers from the Company. If you do not wish to have your information used by the Company to promote our own or third parties’ products or services, you can opt-out by clicking “email preferences” at the bottom of our emails, contacting us via the help email address firstname.lastname@example.org , or calling 1800 652 548 or +61 3 8792 8000. If we have sent you a promotional email, you may send us a return email asking to be omitted from future email distributions. This opt out does not apply to information provided to the Company as a result of a product purchase, warranty registration, product service experience or other transactions.
Accessing, Correcting and Deleting Your Information
You may contact us to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We may not be able to delete your personal information without also deleting your user account.
