We have prepared this Privacy Policy to describe to you our practices regarding Personal Data we collect from users of our Website and Services. Capitalised terms not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meanings given in our Terms of Use.

The processing of Personal Data shall always be in line with the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act 1998 (“Privacy Act”) and the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and shall always be in accordance with country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Swipe Health Platforms.

User Consent

Where we rely on your consent as the lawful basis to process your data we will always ask for you to positively affirm your acceptance. By clicking “I accept the Privacy Policy” or similar, or if we indicate that by clicking a button you are accepting this Privacy Policy you acknowledge and agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy.

We note that certain contact or other data forms where consent is required to be given by you include no pre-checked checkboxes so that you are able to freely and affirmatively opt-in. In cases where we do not consider it practical to include a checkbox, we will indicate that by clicking a certain button you have agreed to the terms of this Privacy Policy. We will also provide you with notice on the Website specifically detailing what it is that you are consenting to in clear and plain language as well ensuring that each matter that requires consent is clearly distinguishable.

For all areas of the Website where consent is given it is just as easily able to be withdrawn through the appropriate account settings on the Website.
