Privacy Policy

Who are we?

Locify Pty Ltd is a marketing company based in Australia that operates Locify, a loyalty and rewards program designed for small and medium sized businesses. Locify’s objective is to create a digital platform whereby local small and medium sized businesses and local communities of consumers can support each other.

We have designed a secure and transparent way for you as a consumer and supporter of local small and medium sized businesses to join the Locify community, to opt-in to be rewarded Locify points for money spent at local businesses and to receive information about advertising offers, coupons, discounts, surveys or other services (“Offers”) and enter sweepstakes, contests or competitions (“Sweepstakes”) from third party sponsors (“Sponsors”) and Enterprises who’s products you purchase through the Locify Business Network (“Enterprises”). These Offers and Sweepstakes are promoted and displayed via email, webpages, the Locify App and widgets across and within our network of Sponsor and Enterprise websites and mobile applications and also promoted on Locify owned and managed websites (“Locify Sites”) (together, the “Publisher Network”).

 

Our commitment to your privacy

Locify takes your privacy very seriously and is committed to protecting it. We understand that you will only use our service if you can trust us to protect your Personal Information (defined below) and use it appropriately.

This privacy policy sets out the basis on which any Personal Information we collect from you, or you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our practices regarding your Personal Information.

We define “Personal Information” as information that you provide to us which personally identifies you, including your name, email address, mobile phone number, gender, marital status, age, postcode and other personally identifiable information you give us in order to provide services to you.

 

Information that we collect

We may collect information in a number of ways:

  • Personal Information you give us when you opt-in to Offers, Sweepstakes or our other services while engaging with our widgets across our Publisher Network, or if you register for an account or membership on a Locify Site;
  • Information about your interaction with our widgets, including website analytics information retrieved from your web browser, such as Internet Protocol address, browser type, language preferences, access times, referring website address, your general geographic area based on your IP address, in order to customise our services to you;
  • Information that allows us to provide you with more focused and targeted communications, collected using cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, customised links or similar technologies in e-mails we send you, that tell us the pages you view, the links you click, whether an e-mail has been opened and other actions relating to our widgets and services. For further information on our use of cookies – see our Cookies Policy below.
  • Information relating to your advertisement interaction and viewing data, such as ad click-through rates and information about what you viewed across the Locify Publisher Network. We may also collect transaction data from your activity on our Publisher Network and advertiser segmentation lists from our Advertising partners.
  • Information provided to us through our customer contact channels.
  • Information about you that we may obtain from third-party sources and platforms (including social networking sites, validation services, online marketing companies, ad-targeting companies or advertisers or publishers) to supplement the information we collect with information obtained from those third party sources. For example, if you elect to connect to your third-party social networking service profile (such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter) through the Locify Network, or socially share an Offer or Sweepstake, we may access and use relevant details that you permit to be accessed through that social networking service such as username, profile image, location information, interests, activities, ‘likes’, connection list and age for those services.

The following subsections set out how your Personal Information will be used by Locify (including but not limited to sending you third party advertisements we believe are relevant to you) and may be used by Advertisers and Publishers.

(i) Use of Personal Information by Locify
Our use of the Personal Information you give us, and your consent to us using your Personal Information, includes Locify:

  • selecting and displaying to you Offers that are personalised and customised to your interests, preferences and experiences;
  • providing your personal information to Advertisers or Publishers in relation to those Offers with your consent;
  • making our widgets easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information;
  • monitoring the effectiveness of Offers and campaigns;
  • sending you details of Offers that you have asked to receive, via any medium including via email and SMS or at the number(s) you provided (which may include using an automatic telephone dialling system or pre-recorded message);
