Introduction


Privacy and online safety are important to us here at QLD Commercial & Residential Pty Ltd (“QCR“). We use this website to help promote our business online and we offer services and products to users of this website. In the course of this use, we may collect data (“Data”) from people who use this website, enquire about services or products on our website (collectively, “Services”). This privacy policy describes how we collect, use and disclose Data.

In this privacy policy, we sometimes refer to “You”. “You” may be a visitor to one of our websites, a user (“User”of one or more of our Services, or a customer (“Customer”of a User. We’ll do our best to clarify who we are referring to at various points in this policy. This policy does not apply to third-party websites, products, or services even if they link to our Services, and You should consider the privacy practices of those third-parties carefully. If You disagree with the practices described in this policy, You should (a) take the necessary steps to remove cookies from Your computer after leaving our website, and (b) discontinue Your use of our Services.

1. Overview

The Data we collect depends on how our Services are used. Sometimes we receive Data directly, such as when an account is created, test transactions are submitted through our website, our Checkout Form is used, or we receive an email. Other times, we get Data by recording interactions with our Services by, for example, using technologies like cookies and web beacons. We also get Data from third parties, like our financial partners or identity verification services.

The collection and use of data from a variety of sources is essential to our ability to provide our Services – and to help keep the Services safe. Data is critical in helping us to increase the safety of Your online payments, and reduce the risk of fraud, money laundering and other harmful activity.

2. Data We Collect

a. Personal Data. We call Data that identifies, or that could reasonably be used to identify, You as an individual as “Personal Data”. We collect Personal Data in different ways. For example, we collect Personal Data when a business or individual registers for a QCR  account, a Customer makes payments or conducts transactions through a User’s website or application, a person responds to our emails or surveys, or when a Customer uses the “Remember Me” feature of our Checkout. We also receive Personal Data from other sources, such as 3rd party property websites, our partners, financial service providers, identity verification services, and publicly available sources. Personal Data does not include Data that has been aggregated or made anonymous such that it can no longer be reasonably associated with a specific person. The Personal Data that we may collect includes:

  • Contact details, such as name, postal address, telephone number, email address;
  • Financial and transaction Data, such as credit or debit card number, and bank account information; and
  • Other Personal Data, such as date of birth, SSN or EIN.

b. Other Data. We call Data other than Personal Data “Other Data”. We collect Other Data through a variety of sources. One of our sources for Other Data is cookies and other technologies that record Data about the use of our websites, websites that implement our Services, and the use of our Services generally. Other Data that we may collect include:

  • Browser and device data, such as IP address, device type, operating system and Internet browser type, screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, plug-ins, add-ons and the version of the Services You are using;
  • Transaction data, such as purchases, purchase amount, date of purchase, and payment method;
  • Cookie and tracking technology data, such as time spent on the Services, pages visited, language preferences, and other anonymous traffic data; and
  • Company data, such as a company’s legal structure, product and service offerings, jurisdiction, company records, and any information You may submit through this website.

3. How We Use Data

a. Personal Data. We and our service providers use Personal Data to: (i) provide the Services; (ii) detect and prevent fraud; (iii) mitigate financial loss or other harm to Users, Customers, and QCR; and (iv) promote, analyse and improve our products, systems, and tools. Examples of how we may use Personal Data include:

  • To conduct aggregate analysis and develop business intelligence that enable us to operate, protect, make informed decisions, and report on the performance of, our business.

b. Other Data. We may use Other Data for a range of different purposes, provided we comply with applicable law and our contractual commitments. In some countries (for example, European Economic Area countries), local legal regimes may require us to treat some or all of Other Data as “personal data” under applicable data protection laws. Where this is the case, we will process Other Data only for the same purposes as Personal Data under this privacy policy.

You need only click the link in the footer of such emails to be automatically removed forever. This only removes you from mass marketing emails, it does not mean we cannot send you a direct one-on-one email from time to time.  However, if you never want to hear from us in any way, a simple email request to our main contact form will ensure you are swiftly deleted from all our systems.
