Data Integrity

Blinkr endeavours to ensure that all personal information that it holds is accurate, complete and up-to-date. To assist us with this, individuals should contact us if any of their personal information changes, or if they believe that the personal information we have is not accurate or complete.

When personal information that we collect is no longer required by Blinkr, we will destroy or de-identify that personal information unless we are required by law or a court/tribunal to retain the personal information.

We may retain personal information for so long as it is required for any of our business purposes, for the prevention of fraud, for insurance and governance purposes and in our IT back-up.


We may hold your personal information in electronic formats or in hard copy. Generally, we aim to store your personal information securely to ensure that your personal information is not protected from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure, and from other types of misuse, interference and loss.

While we will take reasonable steps to protect the personal information that we hold from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure, you should be aware that no system is completely secure against cyber attack.

In addition, the open nature of the internet is such that information exchanged via the internet may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. Any information sent via the internet is sent at the sender’s risk.

You should contact us immediately if you believe that there has been unauthorised access or disclosure with respect to any personal information that we hold about you.

Information about third parties

If you provide us with personal information about a third party, in doing so you will be representing to us that you have that person’s consent for us to collect and handle their personal information in accordance with this policy – and we will be collecting the information on that basis.

Disclosure Overseas

Blinkr is unlikely to disclose your personal information overseas to persons other than technical service providers, hosting providers, IT companies and manufacturers, however if we do so, it will be in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles.

Our payment system is based in Australia.

Our servers are located in Australia and the United States of America.

You consent to any disclosure of your personal information by Blinkr overseas on the understanding that if the overseas recipient handles the personal information in breach of the Australian Privacy Principles, the entity will not be accountable under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), and you will not be able to seek redress under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). The overseas recipient may not be subject to privacy obligations or to any principles similar to the Australian Privacy Principles. Individuals may not be able to seek redress in some overseas jurisdictions, and overseas recipients may be subject to a foreign law that could compel the disclosure of personal information to a third party, such as an overseas authority.

De-identified data

You consent to Blinkr using and disclosing your de-identified data (data that no longer identifies you) for any purpose, including without limitation research, statistical analysis, product development, marketing and business planning and any other commercial purpose. We undertake technical measures to make sure that this data cannot be associated back to you.

Government related identifiers

Blinkr may collect government-related identifiers for the purposes set out in this policy, but Blinkr does not use any government-related identifiers, such as driver’s licence or passport numbers, as its own internal identifier of any individual. Blinkr will not use or disclose any government-related identifiers other than in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).

Access and correction

Individuals can request access to their personal information held by Blinkr by sending a written request to our Privacy Officer.

Blinkr does not impose a charge for making a request for access, however we may charge for reasonable administrative costs incurred in providing access.

You can ask our Privacy Officer to request or update your personal information. Blinkr does not impose any charge with respect to requests for correction or updates.

Before providing access to personal information, or correcting or updating personal information, Blinkr will require your identity to be confirmed.

Requests for access or correction may be refused upon the grounds contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). If we refuse to provide access, or to correct or update personal information, Blinkr will provide you with reasons for the refusal. If we refuse to correct your personal information you have the right to associate with the information a statement that the information is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading. We will take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to associate that statement with all records we hold that contain the relevant information.

Notifiable data breaches

We will notify you and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner about any data breach that is likely to result in serious harm to you. There are exceptions where notification is not required, for example where we have already taken appropriate remedial action that removes the risk of serious harm to any individuals.


Privacy related complaints should be directed to our Privacy Officer in writing at the address below.

We will do our best to ensure that our investigation is completed, and a decision about your complaint is communicated to you, within 30 days of our being advised of the complaint. We will inform you if we need more time.
