Employgroup's Privacy Policy

The “information age” has brought with it many challenges and opportunities. One such area is in the availability and use of personal details.

Employgroup’s Privacy Policy is designed to protect the information provided to us while still providing you with easy access to valuable data regarding your payroll.

This Privacy Statement informs you of the types of non-public personal information that we collect about you, how we use that information, and the circumstances under which we share that information with third parties.

This Privacy Statement may be revised from time to time to meet the changing needs of business and statutory compliance. For example changes to legislation and additional improved features to our system and service may require modifications to the Privacy Statement. Changes to the policy will be notified on the website so please review our policy regularly so that you are aware of any changes.

Personally Identifiable Information

"Personally identifiable information" is information about a person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. It includes, for example, an individual's name, street address, e-mail address, or phone number.

Personally identifiable information will not be collected unless you voluntarily send an e-mail message, fill out and send an online form, or fill out personal information and send in a survey. Your choice not to participate in these activities will not impair your ability to access certain information or obtain a service. Unless specifically protected under state law, any information provided may be inspected by the public or disclosed in a legal proceeding.

Sharing

We use outside courier services to courier orders and other material. These companies do not retain share or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

We partner with other parties to provide specific services. These include your government tax departments to file tax information, banking services for direct credit or funds transfer, and HR consultancy or ERP partners to provide implementation services. When the user requests these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.

These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

E-mail Messages

E-mail messages, sent to any Employgroup owned address (including Aussiepay, EquipHR, Synchronise eCorporate and ePayroll), will be treated the same as any other written communication. They may be subject to public inspection or legal disclosure and may be saved for a period of time before they are destroyed. E-mail or other information requests sent to the state website may be maintained in order to respond to the request, forward that request to the appropriate agency, or to provide the web designer with valuable customer feedback to assist in improving the site. E-mail addresses obtained as a result of a request to the state site will not be sold or given to private companies for marketing purposes.

Surveys will be used for the purpose stated. If personally identifiable information is collected it may be subject to public inspection and legal disclosure and may be saved for a period of time before it is destroyed.
