How we use information we collect

One of Enquiry Tracker’s core purposes is to help Organisations track prospective students. Organisations do this by using the Services to collect Enquirer Information such as contact information, student information and interests. The Organisation’s Users have access to this information for the purpose of understanding the profile of their potential future student population.

  • We will never use Personal Information collected in our Services for any purposes other than making the information available to an authorised User, or other Individuals authorised by the User.
  • We will never use the Personal Information for any marketing or commercial purposes, and we will maintain all Student Information in the strictest confidence.
  • We will not disclose or sell Personal Information to unrelated third parties under any circumstances.

In general, the primary principle is that we will not use any Personal Information other than for the purpose for which it was collected, in accordance with the Organisation’s own privacy policy and terms of use outlined on their respective websites or on premise. The purpose of collection is determined by the circumstances in which the information was collected and/or submitted.

Our Services will retain Personal Information until the Enquirer and/or Organisation deems it no longer necessary to be kept. Enquiry Tracker does not automatically delete Personal Information added by Enquirers, because Enquiry Tracker is fully User controlled. Users can choose to permanently delete an Enquirer record at anytime. It is the responsibility of the Organisation to delete Personal Information if it is no longer required for compliance or legal reasons.

Other ways we use personal information:

  • To provide, maintain and improve our Services, which may include:
    • The provision of goods and services;
    • Verifying an individual’s identity;
    • Communications between Enquirers, Users, Organisations and Enquiry Tracker (including email, phone and Live Chat from the Website);
    • Analysing trends, administering or optimising the Services, monitoring usage or traffic patterns (including to track users’ movements around the Services);
    • Investigating complaints about or made by an individual.
  • Basic account data will be visible to the Enquiry Tracker support team in any location. This includes User/account holder name and email address.
  • Circumstances which we must disclose an individual’s Personal Information.
    • If we have reason to suspect that a User is in breach of any Terms of Use, or we have reason to suspect a User has been otherwise engaged in any fraudulent, deceptive or unlawful activity (in which case we may be required disclose that information to a governmental authority); and/or
    • As required or permitted by any law.
    • In order to sell our business (in that we may need to transfer Personal Information to a new owner). In this case, we will ensure that the new owner has privacy policies consistent with this policy.
  • The Company does use other third-party systems to run our business and communicate with Enquirers, Users, Organisations and Prospects. We ensure any third-party products only store the minimum relevant information in any system outside Enquiry Tracker. These service providers may be located in Australia or in the United States of America, and include:
    • Customer Relationship Management (CRM) – To manage our leads and customer database (separate to User data).
    • Marketing Automation Platform – To send marketing promotions.
    • Accounting Software – To process account payments.
    • Google Analytics – To analyse web traffic.
    • Email – To send or reply to emails from a User, Organisation or Prospect. The Emails we send (like most emails) are stored on third party systems (e.g. email clients such as gmail/outlook) as clear text.

School Representative Access

The Service provides support for additional features such as managing attendees at an Organisation’s event. Users are able to set the Service to enable a School Representative such as a student; staff member or volunteer such as a student; staff member or volunteer to manage the event, including check in attendees, verifying basic contact information etc.

Enquirer Data

Our goal is to be clear about what information the Service collects. For example, Users can control:

  • View, add and edit. Enquiry Tracker is designed to allow Enquirers to add and manage personal information entered by other Users or via WebForm completions.
  • Data portability. Users can export personal data stored in Enquiry Tracker in an open standard electronic format (XML or CSV). This includes data such as Enquirer Profile , and Student Information.
  • Blocking Cookies. Users may also set their browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our Services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us (see Cookies Policy). However, it is important to remember that many of our Services may not function properly if cookies are disabled.
  • Opt-Outs. Enquirers can “opt-out” to receive communications such as email, mail and SMS.

Opting “IN” or “OUT”

When an Enquirer provides their information to an Organisation to be stored in the Enquiry Tracker Services, they are accepting the Terms of Use and privacy policy pertaining to the Organisation. In other words, they have Opted In for:

  • The Services to store any Personal Information the Enquirer chooses to add to provide;
  • The Services to send them communications on behalf of an Organisation;

If an Enquirer has been added to Enquiry Tracker and wants to Opt Out, they can do so by contacting the Organisation and asking to be excluded or unsubscribing from relevant communications.

If an Enquirer wishes to unsubscribe from an Organisation’s updates (e.g. event notifications,, etc), they can do so by clicking on the email Unsubscribe link.

Security and Safety of Personal Information

We maintain a variety of appropriate technical and organisational safeguards to protect personal information. Access to Personal Information about Enquirers is limited to Users that the Organisation has approved. For more information see our Security Practices.

The primary function of Enquiry Tracker is to enable Organisations to collect relevant information from Enquirers for the people they are responsible for (e.g. themselves, their children). Enquiry Tracker requires that Organisations have a compliant Privacy Policy in place.

Enquiry Tracker uses SSL encryption to transfer Personal Information and leverages the data security built into Google Cloud Platform. See our Security Practices for more information. Despite this, the security of online transactions and the security of communications sent by electronic means or by post cannot be guaranteed. Each individual that provides information to us via the internet or by post does so at their own risk. We cannot accept liability for misuse or loss of, or unauthorised access to, Personal Information where the security of information is not within our control.

We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of any third party (including third parties that we are permitted to disclose an individual’s Personal Information to in accordance with this policy or any applicable laws). The collection and use of an individual’s information by such third parties may be subject to separate privacy and security policies.

Data Breach Policy

If an individual suspects any misuse or loss of, or unauthorised access to their Personal Information, they should let us know immediately (Contact Us details below).

If we become aware of any unauthorised access to an individual’s Personal Information, we will inform the Organisation at the earliest opportunity as per our Data Breach Policy.

Compliance and cooperation with regulatory authorities

We may do things in addition to what is stated in the Privacy Policy to comply with laws and regulations including the Australian Privacy Principles. Nothing in this Privacy Policy shall deem us to have not complied with these rules and regulations.

When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We will work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our Users directly.

Complaints and Disputes

If an individual has a complaint about our handling of their Personal Information, they should address their complaint in writing to the contact details below. If there is a dispute regarding Personal Information, both parties must first attempt to resolve the issue directly between each other.

If we become aware of any unauthorised access to an Organisations account, we will inform the Enquirer, User and/or Organisation at the earliest opportunity once we have established what was accessed and how it was accessed.

In the event that you are not satisfied with our handling of your complaint, you can refer the complaint to your relevant local authority (e.g. Australian Privacy Commissioner).
