2. Personal Information Collected
Beep does not collect any personal data from visitors to our website, unless that information is volunteered. Schools, businesses, associations and clubs provide Beep with personal information relating to students, teachers, parents, school administrators, members and customers directly.
Participating organisations that disclose personal information to Beep do so with the authorisation of the individuals involved. Alternatively, organisations disclose personal information to Beep on the basis that the provision of this information is one of the purposes in connection with which the information was obtained, being the distribution of various related notifications to students, parents, teachers, school administrators, members and customers. Beep uses any personal information provided only in relation to the purpose for which it was provided.
Beep uses common internet technologies, such as cookies, on our website to store personal data. We may also link information stored in cookies with personal data about specific individuals. This facilitates technical administration of the website, customer administration, and research and development.
3. Uses and Sharing of Personal Information
Beep will only use your personal information in relation to the purposes for which it was provided. If Beep wishes to use your personal data for new purposes it will only do so after offering you the opportunity to consent to this new use. Beep will not share your personal information with any third party unless we have asked for and obtained your explicit consent to do so. If you do not provide your consent, we will not share your information.
Beep can access non-identifying and aggregated usage information to gain better understanding of how visitors are using Beep, allowing us to make system improvements where appropriate. Beep stores aggregated usage information securely.
