Outsourced data processing
We may enter into an agreement(s) with third party cloud providers or others (including but not limited to Google) for the outsourcing of our data processing.
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.
When personal information that we collect is no longer required by Trudi, 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.
Our servers are located in Singapore.
We may have service providers and associated entities located in United States.
You consent to any disclosure of your personal information by Trudi 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, and you will not be able to seek redress under the Privacy Act. 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.
You consent to Trudi 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.
Trudi takes reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information that it collects, uses and discloses is accurate, up-to-date and complete.

You can ask our Privacy Officer to correct or update your personal information. Trudi 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, Trudi will require your identity to be confirmed.
Requests for access or correction may be refused upon the grounds contained in the Privacy Act. If we refuse to provide access, or to correct or update personal information, Trudi 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.
