Privacy Policy

We Respect your privacy

Safety Navigator is committed to supporting the 'National Privacy Principles for the Fair Handling of Personal Information' which set clear standards for the collection, access, storage and use of personal information which we obtain as part of our business operations.

Our respect for our customers' right to privacy of their personal information is paramount. We have policies and procedures to ensure that all personal information, no matter how or where it is obtained, is handled sensitively, securely, and in accordance with the Safety Navigator Privacy Principles.

This Privacy Policy sets out:

  • Matters of which you should be aware regarding information we may collect about you
  • Our policies on the management of personal information, and
  • Generally, what sort of information we hold, for what purposes, and how we collect, hold, use and disclose that information


What of your personal information do we collect and store?

So that we can provide services to you, we may ask for personal details such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address. Some examples of where we may need these details are memberships and online purchases of products. Privacy law requires us to collect personal information about you only from you if it is reasonable and practical to do so.

Safety Navigator takes measures to ensure your personal information is protected from unauthorised access, loss, misuse, disclosure or alteration. We also take measures to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information when it is no longer required. The types of measures we take vary with the type of information, and how it is collected and stored.

Generally, you have no obligation to provide any information requested by us. If you choose to withhold requested information however, we may not be able to provide you with the goods and services that depend on the collection of that information, particularly if the collection of that information is required by law.



How is your personal information used?

The personal information that we ask for is generally used to provide goods or services to you. For example, for a credit card transaction we need your card number, and for a competition we need your contact details so we can contact you if you win. 

We may also use your personal information in other ways to provide you with superior service. This may include using your personal information to advise you of new products and services. You have the right to tell us that you do not want us to send information to you other than for the main purpose for which we have collected your personal details. 

Where possible, we try to ensure that our disclosure of information to other organisations (for example market researchers, and others with whom we have commercial arrangements) is in a way which does not personally identify individuals.


Access to your personal information

We will provide you with access to any of your personal information we hold (except in the limited circumstances recognised by privacy law). 

If you require information about what of your personal information we retain, please email: systems@safetynavigator.com.au 

Of course, before we provide you with access to your personal information we will require some proof of identity. For most requests, your information will be provided free of charge, however we may charge a reasonable fee if your request requires a substantial effort on our part. 

If you need to update your information (eg. if you change your address), please contact: systems@safetynavigator.com.au   so we can make the change."

We DO NOT accept returns or refund at any time for any purchase in our online shop or when we take orders online, via email, fax or over the telephone. The only instance we return and replace goods are when they have proven to be faulty.

Commercial Use

You must obtain our prior written consent to make commercial offers of any kind, whether by advertising, solicitations, links, or any other form of communication within this site or to users and members of this site.

Access and Interference

You agree that you will not use any robot, spider or other automatic device, process or means to access the Site. Nor shall you use any manual process to monitor or copy our web pages or the content contained thereon or for any other unauthorized purpose without our prior expressed written permission. You agree that you will not use any device, software or routine that interferes with the proper working of the Site nor shall you attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Site.

Unauthorised Use of the Site

Any Illegal or unauthorized use of the Site shall constitute a violation of these Terms of Use. You do not have permission to access the Site in any way that violates, or in the course of violating, these Terms of Use. It shall also be a violation of these Terms of Use: (a) for any individual (or group of individuals acting in concert), where they are a Safety Navigator member or not, to request, more than 1000 pages of the Site in any twenty-four hour period (hereafter referred to as "Abusive Use"); or (b) to use any passcode or password, regardless of whether or not such password or passcode is unique, to participate in a pre-sale or other offer on the Site if you are not the original recipient of such passcode. This 


Fair Use Policy (Members ofSafety Navigator)

We accept that individuals and organisations use the various (versions of the original) Safety Navigator systems to manage health and safety and as such, in many cases, should be expected to use the system extensively to achieve that aim, which means a reasonably high volume of 'form submissions'  over a given period. Non-withstanding our 'Unauthorised Use of the Site' policy, 'Fair Use' of the Safety Navigator system is such that any single account (Safety Navigator member) is able to perform up to 20 'form submissions' across any seven day period. Any additional 'form submissions' over those 20 will result in either/or:


a. Access to the site for that member being terminated by Smart OHS until a resolution may be reached;
b. Safety Navigator charging the Safety Navigator 20 cents (AUD) per individual form submission over the permitted number (20) over any seven day period.

For the purposes of this policy a 'form submission' means the following: completing and saving/submitting any online form within the Safety Navigator system, including: Inspection Forms, Hazardous Substances Registers, Staff/Contractor Inductions, Tasks/Risk Assessments, Toolbox Talk/Consultations, System and Documentation Reviews, Contractor Registrations and, any upload of documents into the system, including in the 'WHS Documents and Records' section within Safety Navigator.

As discussed, violation of this fair use policy for any reason would result in the individual account in violation of this policy being suspended until such time as Safety Navigator and the individual account holder, whether they be an individual or corporation, can agree to fair compensation to Safety Navigator, given that such a violation carries with it the associated affect of increased data usage and thus costs to Safety Navigator.

In every instance, this policy overrides the 'Unauthorised Use of the Site' policy, whereby if a Safety Navigator member in not violating the 'Unauthorised Used of the Site' policy, but in their actions they violate the 'Fair Use Policy', the suspension of the account in question will remain in force until such time as compensation to Safety Navigator is agreed to by the individual account holder or corporation account holder in question and Safety Navigator.


Suspected Violation of these Terms of Use or Law; Injunctive, Equitable Relief, and Liquidated Damages

Violations of these Terms of Use, including Unauthorized Use of the Site, may be investigated and appropriate legal action may be taken, including without limitation civil, criminal and injunctive redress. You understand and agree that in Safety Navigator's sole discretion, and without prior notice, Safety Navigator may terminate your access to the Site, cancel your order or products acquired through your ticket, remove any unauthorized User Content or exercise any other remedy available, if Safety Navigator believes that your conduct or the conduct of any person with whom Safety Navigator believes you act in concert, or the User Content you provide through Safety Navigator, violates or is inconsistent with these Terms or the law, or violates the rights of Safety Navigator, a client of Safety Navigator or another user of the Site. You agree that monetary damages may not provide a sufficient remedy to Safety Navigator for violations of these Terms and you consent to injunctive or other equitable relief for such violations.

You agree that Abusive Use of the Site, as defined above, causes damage and harm to Safety Navigator in the form of, among other things, impaired goodwill, lost sales, and increased expenses associated with responding to Abusive Use of the Site. You further agree that monetary damages for Abusive Use of the Site are difficult to ascertain and that proof of monetary damages for Abusive Use would be costly and inconvenient to calculate. Accordingly you agree that liquidated damages are warranted for Abusive Use. Therefore, you agree that if you, or others acting in concert with you, alone or collectively request more than 1000 pages of the Site in any twenty-four hour period, you, and those acting in concert with you, will be jointly and severally liable for liquidated damages in the amount of ten dollars ($10.00) per page request each time that a page request is made after that first 1000 during that twenty-four hour period. You also agree that this will be the measure of damages for any Abusive Use that occurred prior to this provision of these Terms of Use being in effect.

Safety Navigator is not required to provide any refund to you if it exercises any of its rights or remedies because you have violated these Terms or any of Safety Navigator's rights. Additionally, we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify, suspend or discontinue any part of this Site at any time, with or without notice to you. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to impose limits on certain features and services and to restrict access to any part or to all of the Site without notice to you. We shall not be liable to you or any third party for any claim or cause of action arising out of our exercise of the foregoing rights.

Copyright Policy

We will terminate the privileges of any user who uses this Site to unlawfully transmit copyrighted material without a license express consent, valid defence or fair use exemption to do so. In particular, users who submit User Content to this Site, whether articles, images, stories, software or other copyrightable material must ensure that the User Content they upload does not infringe the copyrights or other rights of third parties (including, but not limited, to trademark, trade secret, privacy or publicity rights).

We may, also in our sole discretion, decide to terminate a user's rights to use or access to the Site prior to that time if we believe that an alleged infringement has occurred.


Indemnity
