What we collect and why we collect & hold information:
3. Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Salary Contributions: The primary purpose of LiveSalary is to collect anonymous salary-related data from Australian employees to help them compare and benchmark their salary to other people. When you add your salary data, LiveSalary may collect information about your profession, gender, location, level of education, etc, but your name, phone number or company name is not collected or stored. Individual salary contributions are submitted anonymously and are not personally identifiable. The only contact information we collect in the salary contribution page is an optional e-mail address field - we do NOT display this e-mail address on any publicly accessible page. Any contact details provided are completely optional and are kept confidential at all times.
Site Traffic Statistics: When you visit LiveSalary, certain kinds of information, such as the website that referred you to us, your IP address, browser type and language, and access times, may be collected automatically as part of the site’s operation. We also may collect navigational information, including information about the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions taken in connection with the site. This data is always used as aggregated, non-personal information. LiveSalary utilises this information to improve and enhance our services to all users.
Optional Prize Draws and E-mail Alerts: Optional contact information may be collected in relation to salary contributors registering for a competition prize draw and/or signing up to be notified for job alerts or ‘matching profile’ alerts. Your email address information will not be associated with your published salary profile and opting into email alerts is optional.
Generally we will only use and disclose your personal information:
a) to establish and maintain your relationship as a website user, client, job seeker or other user of LiveSalary, including providing you with updated salary data, employment and resource opportunities, newsletters, reports and other information;
b) to provide the services you have requested from LiveSalary;
c) to enable an advertiser to contact you regarding the advertised job you have applied for;
d) to answer your inquiry;
e) to register you for events, promotions or competitions;
f) to assist us to make LiveSalary's services more valuable to our users;
g) for direct marketing of products or services and to keep you informed of new developments we believe may be of interest to you. If we contact you in this way without obtaining your prior consent, we will provide you with the opportunity to decline any further marketing communications.
4. Direct Marketing
Quinntessential may use your personal information (other than sensitive information) for the purpose of direct marketing. If you do not wish to receive direct marketing information, please let Quinntessential know. Quinntessential will then take steps to ensure that you do not receive any direct marketing information in the future.
5. Data Quality
Quinntessential will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the personal information Quinntessential collects, uses and/or discloses is accurate, complete and up to date. To assist Quinntessential in achieving this objective, please contact Quinntessential if you believe your details are not accurate, complete and up to date.
6. Data Security
Quinntessential will take all reasonable precautions to protect your personal information against misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
7. Access and Correction
You have a right to access the personal information Quinntessential holds about you by making your request in writing. Quinntessential will provide such access subject to the exceptions under the Act. Quinntessential reserves the right to charge a fee for searching and providing access to your information.
Using LiveSalary does NOT require you to enter any personally identifying information, leaving you as anonymous as you would like to be. As such, you have the option of remaining anonymous when submitting salary data by not providing any of your personal contact information.
