This is a notice to tell you our policy about all information that we record about you. It covers both information that could or could not identify you.
There are many aspects of the site which can be viewed without providing personal information, however, for access to CrossPoint whitepapers, careers or other customer support features you are required to submit personally identifiable information. This may include but not be limited to a name and email address, or sensitive information in the submission of your CV where you wish to be considered for future employment. This may also include but not be limited to a unique username and password, or provide sensitive information in the recovery of your lost password.
We are extremely concerned to protect your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all users of our web site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party. Our policy is both specific and strict. It complies with Australian law and with the laws of all jurisdictions of which we are aware. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, please do tell us.
If there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, you should consider leaving our web site now.
Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site.
Here is a list of the information we collect from you, either through our web site or because you give it to us in some other way, and why it is necessary to collect it:
1. Basic identification and contact information, such as your name and contact details.
This information is used (as applicable):
1.1. to provide you with the services or documents which you request;
1.2. for verifying your identity for security purposes;
1.3. for marketing our services and products;
1.4. for considering you for employment purposes; or
1.5. information which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service.
2. Sharing your information
Occasionally we may hire other companies to provide marketing support services or customer support enquiries. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. CrossPoint takes reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.
3. Your domain name and e-mail address are recognised by our servers and the pages that you visit are recorded. We shall not under any circumstances divulge your e-mail address to any person who is not an employee or contractor of ours and who does not need to know, either generally or specifically.

4. Website usage information
5. Financial information relating only to your credit cards
This information is never taken by us either through our website or otherwise.
6. Note on padlock symbols and other trust marks
Many companies offer certification and an icon or other small graphic to prove to site visitors that the site is safe. Some certify to a high level of safety. Others are more concerned to take our money than to provide a useful service. We do not handle information about your credit card so do not subscribe to any such service. However, we suggest you assess this notice to judge that we do take your privacy seriously.
7. Business and personal information
This includes all information given to us in the course of your business and ours, such as information you give us in your capacity as our client. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship. It is not used for any other purpose. We expect you to reciprocate this policy.
We keep information which forms part of our business record for minimum of seven years. That is because we may need it in some way to support a claim or defence in court. That is also the period within which our tax collecting authorities may demand to know it.

We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and, if we do, what that information is.
