In handling your personal information, AirService complies with the requirements of the Australian Privacy Principles (“APPs”) in the Australian Privacy Act 1988. In the Policy, the term “personal information” has the same meaning as in the Privacy Act.
The Policy should be read in conjunction with the legal terms and conditions that govern your access to and use of the Services. To read the terms and conditions, go to: www.airservice.com/terms-conditions/
What personal information does AirService collect?
When you use any of the Services and set up a user account, or log in using your Facebook profile, AirService may collect personal information including your name, email address, mobile phone number and any photo you upload. Sometimes we will also collect personal information from individuals via our Facebook and Twitter pages, through publicly available sources or through other social media and online channels, via competitions (online or otherwise) and via email correspondence you send to us.
Each time you use the Services to place an order with a venue that offers the AirService wireless menu and ordering system (the “AirService Platform”), we also collect information about what you ordered, viewed, and when, and the time you left that venue. We need this information to ensure you receive the food, drinks or other items you order, and receive the best service possible.
You may be asked to register your credit card details via the Services so that you can charge food, drinks and other items directly to your card. AirService uses various payment gateways, including PayPal, to securely process credit card transactions, we do not collect or hold your credit card details ourselves.
About venues and other organisations using the AirService Platform
How does AirService use personal information?
Generally, we only use personal information for the purposes of providing you with the Services you require. However, AirService may also use personal information to identify you, communicate with you about your AirService account, engage in an online conversation with you, conduct promotions and marketing, conduct market research, plan, test, improve and further develop our Services and respond to lawful requests where we are compelled to disclosure information. If a third party wishes to acquire an interest in AirService, we may also disclose your personal information to that third party.
Sometimes we might also use personal information to send you information about your AirService account, about new features of the Services or special offers, or about other products or services we think may be relevant or useful to you. If at any time you want to opt out from receiving this kind of information, please let us know by sending us an email to email@example.com with the word “Unsubscribe” in the subject line.
Otherwise, we will only use personal information with your consent, or if we are required or permitted by law to do so (for example, under the APPs in the Privacy Act or the Spam Act).
Who does AirService usually disclose personal information to?
AirService generally discloses your personal information to other persons or organisations for the purposes of providing you with the Services you require.
Most importantly, if you are using the Services to place orders with venues that offer the AirService Platform, we will give those venues and their associated companies access to information about you and your orders. They will use this information to provide you with the food, drinks or other items you have ordered, to offer you complete service, to improve the service they offer to you, and also to keep track of how their business is going. Those venues or companies may also send you information independently of AirService about new features of the Services, special offers, promotions or competitions or about other products or services they think may be relevant or useful to you, or other marketing materials. To opt out of those communications, please contact the venue or company concerned directly.
AirService works with a number of companies with regard to the Services. We may give those companies access to information about you and your orders. They may use this information to provide you with the food, drinks or other items you have ordered, to offer you complete service, to improve the service they offer to you, and also to keep track of how their business is going. Those companies may also send you information about new features of the Services, special offers, promotions or competitions or about other products or services they think may be relevant or useful to you, or other marketing materials independently of AirService. To opt out of those communications, please contact the company concerned directly.
AirService relies on third party contractors or advisors to provide certain services necessary for our business, and sometimes a contractor or advisor may need access to your personal information in order to provide the services we require. While they may vary from time to time, these contractors and advisors may include legal, accounting, security, recruitment, technology, banking, finance and tax advisors and organisations that supply the servers and networks that host our website and allow us to operate the AirService Platform, organisations that provide marketing and communication services on our behalf and other information technology contractors.
Some of the organisations to whom we may disclose your personal information may be located (or may involve the disclosure of your information) outside of Australia including in the United States of America, the United Kingdom, the European Union, Singapore and Hong Kong. You acknowledge that if your personal information is disclosed overseas:
- the organisation to whom your personal information has been disclosed may not be subject to the Australian Privacy Act, the organisations may be subject to different privacy and confidentiality laws and you may not have access to the same remedies set out in the Australian Privacy Act, and
- AirService will not, in any way, be accountable for the conduct of these organisations in relation to the collection, use or disclosure or your personal information by these organisations.
Otherwise, we will only disclose personal information with your consent, or if we are required or permitted by law to do so (for example, under the APPs in the Privacy Act).
Storage, security and destruction of personal information
AirService takes appropriate measures to protect your personal information against unauthorised access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.
We only retain personal information for as long as it is needed by us, or for as long as we are legally required to retain the information (if that is longer). When we dispose of personal information, we ensure that it is disposed of or destroyed in a secure fashion in accordance with our obligations under the APPs in the Privacy Act.
