5.               How we collect information about you

5.1              The personal information we collect about users of our Platform is very limited. We will generally only collect personal information that you provide to us directly, such as:

  • when you provide us with personal information when communicating with us via telephone, email, or the Platform;
  • when you send us an enquiry through our Website that contains your personal information; or
  • when you explicitly permit us to track your interactions with our Website.

5.2             We delegate the processing of payments to use a trusted third party gateway, such as Stripe, to process payments for your use of the Platform. We will not access, collect or store your credit card or payment details.

5.3             If we collect personal information about you from a third party we will, where appropriate, request that the third party take reasonable steps to inform you that we are holding such information, how we will use and disclose it, and that you may contact us to gain access to and correct and update the information.

6.              Unsolicited information

7.2            If you choose to deal with us anonymously or by using a nickname, there are some things we cannot do. For example, we may not be able to give you information about your dealings with us as a customer, supplier, or potential employee, or deal with a complaint.  To create an account on our Platform, you will need to provide us with your email address.
