Privacy Policy

SIGNAL IS COMMITTED TO YOUR PRIVACY

As a respected provider of security products and services, Signal Security Pty Ltd ("Signal") especially recognise that the trust of our customers and web visitors depends, in part, on our sensitivity to and protection of your privacy.

SCOPE OF THIS POLICY

This policy identifies the types of information about you we collect, how we use it, and the steps we take to protect it. The primary focus of this policy is the protection of non-public information that identifies or is associated with the identities of our customers or web visitors. Such information is referred to as "personal identifying information" or PII.

This policy does not apply to companies other than Signal or its affiliated companies ("third parties"), including third parties that have licensed the Signal brand for use with their own products or services. In these situations, you will be subject to third party privacy policies.

Also, when you sign up for certain Signal-offered services, you may be asked to agree to additional privacy policies that address privacy practices specific to those services.

This policy addresses the privacy of Signal customers and visitors to our web site from within Australia.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

We collect PII regarding our customers, including information you provide us, information we collect during and in connection with our relationship with you, and information we obtain from other sources. Examples include:

  1. Your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address
  2. Your billing, payment, usage, credit and transaction information (including credit card numbers, account numbers and/or driver license number)
  3. Information regarding the use of your alarm system products and services, and
  4. Various demographic information about you.

Occasionally, Signal may enter into affinity relationships with third parties to jointly market products and services to our respective customers and customer prospects. In such circumstances, we may obtain the foregoing information and other PII from our affinity partners.

In addition, we may also collect personal identifying information that visitors to our web site provide to us (e.g., name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) when visiting our web sites.

We use the PII of our customers to provide our products and services, determine the credit standing of our customers at the time of sale, submit invoices, obtain payment and resolve customer issues, and, generally, to enhance our customers experience with us. We also use customer and web visitor PII to develop, market and sell new or additional products and services.

We may aggregate the PII of customers and/or Web visitors to produce data about a group or category of services, customers or web visitors, for the purpose of analysing and enhancing our products, services and customer service. Such aggregated data, however, will not contain any PII regarding any customer or web visitor.

DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTIES

Except as set forth in this section, we do not provide your PII to third parties without your consent.

We may disclose your PII to third parties without your consent in order to enable us to provide you our products and services. For example, we may disclose certain PII without your consent to third parties who perform functions or services on our behalf, such as our authorised subcontractors and others who we have engaged to market and sell our products and services, and third parties who provide consulting, data processing, analysis and advertising services.

In addition, we may provide PII to third parties (including credit bureaus or collection agencies) without your consent:

  1. To obtain payment for our products and services or to enforce our customer service agreements, or otherwise to protect or enforce our rights.
  2. To comply with court orders or other legal or regulatory requirements.
  3. To notify a responsible governmental entity or other emergency responder in the event of an activation of your alarm system, or otherwise in accordance with our customer service agreements.

In addition, we may provide certain PII, and information regarding the products and services you purchase from Signal, to our affinity partners and other third parties with whom we have established relationships, in order to market and sell products and services offered by Signal and/or such affinity partners, or to enhance such offerings.

As your alarm service provider, whenever we provide your PII to third parties, we require that they protect it consistent with this policy and do not allow them to use such information for any purposes other than as provided in this policy. In the ordinary course of our business, we may sell (or buy) businesses or assets, including monitoring agreements. In transactions such as these, your PII may be one of the transferred business assets. After any sale or assignment of your account, your PII will become subject to any privacy policies maintained by the buyer of your account.
