Avolution Cookies Notice 

Effective: May 24th, 2018 

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

Like most companies, Avolution and its third-party analytics providers, use certain automatic data collection tools such as cookies, web beacons, page tags and other tracking identification technologies (collectively, “Cookies”). Avolution uses Cookies to receive and record information on our server logs from your browser when you interact with our website  https://www.avolutionsoftware.com (“Website”), with any Avolution interactive applications, email messaging or with certain of our products and services  (with Website, collectively “Online Properties“). These technologies help us better understand user behaviour with, and to improve, our Online Properties, products and services.  

This notice explains how we use Cookies when you interact with any of our Online Properties (“Cookies Notice“) but does not govern the use of the Online Properties nor the processing of Personal Data through the Online Properties. This Cookie Notice should, therefore be read in conjunction with our Privacy Policy. In addition to terms defined in this Notice, other capitalised terms used in this Cookie Notice are defined in the Privacy Policy 

To the extent that (i) internet protocol (IP) addresses or similar non-personal identifiers are considered Personal Data under any relevant privacy and data protection laws and regulations or (ii) non-personal information is combined with Personal Data, we will treat both such non-personal identifiers and the combined information as Personal Data under our general Privacy Policy. Otherwise, we use information collected by passive means in aggregated forms. 

When we talk about “Avolution,” “we,” “our” or “us,” in this Notice, we are referring to Avolution Pty Ltd and its current and future affiliates and related companies.  

 

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A Cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer or other device. Cookies send data back to the originating website on each subsequent visit or share data with another website that recognises that Cookie. Unless you have adjusted your browser settings to refuse Cookies, our system will issue Cookies when you interact with our Online Properties. 

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track those who interact with our Online Properties. We may use other similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”) to track users of our Online Properties. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has interacted with our Online Properties or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users within our Online Properties, and to collect browser type, IP address, and language, referring and exit websites and applications to improve our Online Properties and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns.  

HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

  • Where strictly necessary.  These Cookies may be essential to enable you to browse around and use the Online Properties and their features. 
  • For functionality.  These Cookies remember choices you make, recognise your devices and secure your access to certain of our Online Properties’ functionality, providing you with an experience more appropriate with your selections. 
  • For performance and analytics.  These Cookies collect information on how users interact with the Online Properties and enable us to improve their operation. For example, we use Google Analytics’ cookies to help us understand how visitors arrive at and interact with our Online Properties so we can identify areas for improvement in navigation, user experience, our marketing campaigns, our product and services. We also gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and all such information is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
  • Social and professional media Cookies on our related sites. If you engage with our content on or through our social or professional media sites, such as LinkedIn or Twitter, using a ‘Like,’ ‘Share,’ or click-through link, the associated networks may record that you have done this. This information may be linked to targeting or analytic activities. 
  • Email message click-through. In some of our email messages, we use a click-through URL linked to content on the Avolution Website. When users click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our Website. Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our marketing and customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.  We may use this information to manage the types and number of messages sent to third parties. 

 

HOW CAN YOU OPT-OUT OR MANAGE COOKIES

You have many rights and controls when it comes to managing Cookies. Please note, though, that if you reject Cookies, you may not be able to use some portions or certain functionality of our Online Properties.  

Browser and other controls: Most web browsers allow you to manage Cookies in a way that suits your preferences. In some browsers, you can choose to accept or reject all cookies, or manage them on a site-by-site or type of cookie basis, giving you more control over your privacy. Please note that settings in your browser regarding these Cookies are limited to the particular browser installed on a particular device and that, as a consequence, if you use or visit the Online Properties with different browsers and/or different devices, you have to disable these Cookies in each of such browsers and devices. If you do not want your usage of our Online Properties to be analysed by Google, you can disable Google Analytics by using an add-on in your Internet browser.

HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT COOKIES

If you would like to know more about Cookies and how to manage them, including information about what cookies have been set on your device, All About Cookies is a useful resource as is Your Online Choices (for EU residents). 

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DO NOT TRACK (DNT) SIGNALS

Some web browsers, such as Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari, may give you the ability to enable a “do not track” feature that sends signals to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is not the same as blocking or deleting Cookies, because browsers with a “do not track” feature enabled may still accept cookies. There is currently no industry standard for how companies should respond to “do not track” signals, although one may develop in the future. As a result, we do not respond to “do not track” signals at this time. If we do so in the future, we will describe how in this Cookie Notice. To learn more about “DNT,” you might refer to All About Do Not Track. 

CHANGES TO THIS NOTICE

From time to time, we will change this Cookie Notice in response to changing technologies, industry practices, regulatory requirements or for other purposes. Please visit this Cookie Notice regularly to stay up-to-date on our use of Cookies. The “Effective” date at of the top of this Cookie Notice tells you when it was last updated. 

CONSENT

Your continued use of and interaction with our Online Properties constitutes your consent to our use of Cookies. If you do not agree with the use of Cookies, change the settings on your browsers and devices as described above or do not access or use our Online Properties.
