Privacy

This privacy policy governs your use of a software application (“Application”) on a mobile device that was created by PokitPal or our Website database. The Application consists of a student discount resource.

User Provided Information

Registration with us is mandatory to uniquely identify you in order to be able to use the basic features of the Application.

When you register with us and use the Application, you generally provide your email address, password, DOB, campus and gender. We may also use the information you provided to contact you from time to time to provide you with important information, required notices and marketing promotions from PokitPal Pty Ltd.

Automatically Collected Information

In addition, the Application may collect certain information automatically, such as the type of mobile device you use, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the Application.

The information is used to enhance the visitor's experience when using the Website and Application to display personalised content and possibly advertising.

Email addresses will not be sold, rented or leased to third parties.

Emails may be sent to inform you of news of our services or offers by us or our affiliates. You may unsubscribe by following the instructions which are included in the e-mail that you receive.

Collection of precise real time location information of the device

We use your location information to provide requested location services such as redeeming a discount and to allow tagging and check-in at locations. Your personal attendance at a location is not provided to a third party - only general statistics are provided to our discount partners.  Understanding your needs allows us to deliver more appropriate discounts.

Do third parties see and/or have access to information obtained by the Application?

We may disclose User Provided and Automatically Collected Information:

  • as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process;

 

  • when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request;

 

  • with our trusted services providers who work on our behalf, do not have an independent use of the information we disclose to them, and have agreed to adhere to the rules set forth in this privacy statement.

 

  • to advertisers and third party advertising networks and analytics companies as described below under the Section entitled Automatic Data Collection and Advertising.

 

Automatic Data Collection and Advertising

This free Application service is supported via advertising, and collects data to help the Application serve ads. We may work with analytics companies to help us understand how the Application is being used, such as the frequency and duration of usage. We work with advertisers and third party advertising networks, who need to know how you interact with advertising provided in the Application which helps us keep the cost of the Application free. Advertisers and advertising networks use some of the information collected by the Application, but cannot identify you directly.

Opt Out

Opt-out of all information collection by uninstalling the Application – you can stop all collection of information by the Application easily by uninstalling the Application. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network.

Data Retention Policy, Managing Your Information

We will retain User Provided data for as long as you use the Application and for a reasonable time thereafter. If you’d like us to delete User Provided Data that you have provided via the Application, please contact us at info@pokitpal.com.au with ‘Privacy’ in the subject header and we will respond in a reasonable time. Please note that some or all of the User Provided Data may be required in order for the Application to function properly, and we may be required to retain certain information by law.

Security

We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorised employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Application. Please be aware that, although we endeavour to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

Changes

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy at www.pokitpal.com. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes.
