Information Collected By Cookies and Other Technologies
ExoFlare may gather information by cookies or other web-tracking or analytics technologies. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your device for record-keeping purposes. You can remove cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file or clearing out your browser’s cache. You may also decline our cookies if your browser permits you to do this, but doing so may interfere with your use of our website or the provision of our services.
How Do We Hold and Protect Your Personal Information?
We may hold personal information electronically or in paper files.
We will maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in accordance with the technical state of the art and legal data protection requirements to protect personal information against misuse, intrusion, interference, loss, and unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure. These safeguards include implementing specific technologies and procedures designed to protect your privacy, such as secure servers, firewalls, and SSL encryption and, depending on the information and the circumstances, this protection may in particular include:
- the use of confidential passwords for purposes of accessing such information in Our Environment;
- storing hard copies of documents containing personal or sensitive information in secure files created for this purpose;
- imposing and monitoring confidentiality controls on our employees;
- conducting reasonable due diligence on any third-party service provider’s security measures, and compliance with privacy laws, especially if they are located offshore; and

Where Do We Process Personal Information?
ExoFlare is an Australian business. In the course of our business activities (including because we may use a cloud-based service to store and process personal information), we may transfer your personal information to entities located outside Australia, or, where the GDPR applies, outside the European Economic Area, including to the United States of America and other potential offshore locations. The laws of those other countries may not have laws that require the same level of protection of personal information as Australia or the laws of your home country. When transferring your personal information in this way, we will comply with applicable data protection requirements and put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure the privacy, security, and integrity of your personal information.
If any transfer of personal data (as defined in the GDPR) is to a third country for the purpose of the GDPR, we will ensure the transfer (and any onwards transfer) complies with Chapter 5 of the GDPR, which may involve us entering into standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission with the other entity.
You may contact us using the contact details below if you would like further information on the safeguards that we will implement when collecting, holding, using, and processing your personal information.
With Whom Do We Share Your Personal Information?
We may disclose your personal information for the Permitted Purposes to:
- other entities in the corporate group of ExoFlare;
- service providers (including data processors), located in Australia or overseas, such as shared service centres or cloud providers, to process personal information on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions only, provided that we will retain control over and will remain responsible for your personal information and will use appropriate safeguards as required by applicable law to ensure the integrity and security of your personal information when engaging such service providers, our service provides include Amazon, Google, ConvertKit, HelpScout, and Notion;

If you have asked us not to communicate with you, we will hold this information as long as required to comply with your request.

Your personal information will be promptly deleted when it is no longer required for these purposes.
Your Rights and Making Complaints
To obtain access to, or seek correction of, your personal information that we hold, please contact us using the contact details below.
If you have given us your consent for the processing of your personal information, you may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect, such that the withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on the consent before its withdrawal. If you withdraw your consent, we will only continue processing your personal information where there is another legal ground or where we are legally required to do so.
For any of the above requests, please send a description of your personal information concerned and appropriate proof of identity (e.g., your name or customer number) as proof of identity to the contact details below. We may require additional proof of identity to protect your personal information against unauthorised access. We will carefully consider your request and may discuss with you how it can best be fulfilled.
If you have any concerns about how your personal information is handled by us or wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal information, you can contact us at the contact details below to have the matter investigated. Where a complaint is received, the Privacy Officer will consider the complaint, and within a reasonable time, will decide whether the complaint warrants further investigation.

Phone: 1300 363 992
If we are processing your personal data within the scope of the GDPR, you can complain to the competent data protection supervisory authority in your country.
Are You Required To Provide Personal Information?
As a general principle, you will provide us with your personal information entirely voluntary. There are generally no detrimental effects on you if you choose not to consent or to provide personal information. However, there are circumstances in which ExoFlare cannot take action without certain of your personal information, for example, because this personal information is required to register your account, to book your attendance at an event, to provide you with a response to a communication or query, to provide you with access to a product, service, offering or newsletter, or to carry out a legally required compliance screening. In some instances, we may be unable to provide you with access to our products and services. In these cases, it will unfortunately not be possible for ExoFlare to provide you with what you request without the relevant personal information.
