Effective Date: September 6, 2018
Silverth Pty Ltd (“Silverth”, “Silverth.com”, “we”, “us”) is committed to protecting your privacy when you interact with us, our content, products, or services.
Purpose of this Policy
This policy explains our personal information handling practices. It describes how we may collect, use, and disclose information about you or your use of our content, products, or services.
For the purposes of the Policy, the term “personal data” will have the same meaning as in EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679(“GDPR”).
Who We Are and What This Policy Covers
• Our websites (including silverth.com, patswebdesign.com, tootyhost.com, geniedownunder.com, adirectory.net.au and globeefit.com);
• Our mobile applications (including the globeefit mobile app for Android);
• Our other products and services that are available on or through our websites (including silverth.com, patswebdesign.com, tootyhost.com plans and adirectory.net.au plans); and
• Other users’ websites that use our Services, while you are logged in to your account with us.
By using the Services, you signify your agreement to the terms and conditions of this Policy and to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal data as set out herein. You may change or withdraw your consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal data at any time, by using the request forms in section “Seeking access to, and updating information we hold about you” or by contacting the Privacy Officer in writing at the address listed below. In some circumstances, a change or withdrawal of consent may affect your ability to use the Services.
1. Collection of Personal Information
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better.
1.1 How we collect personal information
The main circumstances in which Silverth collects personal information about you are: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
Information You Provide to Us
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
• Basic Account Information: We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, we require individuals who sign up for an account with tootyhost.com, geniedownunder.com and/or adirectory.net.au to provide a username and email address.
• Public Profile Information: If you have an account with us, we collect the information that you provide for your public profile. For example, if you have an ADirectory.net.au account, your username is part of that public profile, along with any other information you put into your public profile, such as a photo or an “About Me” description. Your public profile information is just that–public–so please keep that in mind when deciding what information you would like to include.
• Transaction and Billing Information: If you buy something from us–a subscription to a tootyhost.com plans, adirectory.net.au plans, a domain name registration, or a hosting account, for example–you will provide additional personal and payment information that is required to process the transaction and your payment, such as your name, credit card information, and contact information.
• Content Information: Depending on the Services you use, you may also provide us with information about you in draft and published content (such as for your website).
• Credentials: Depending on the Services you use, you may provide us with credentials for your website.
• Communications With Us: You may also provide us information when you communicate with our team via email, phone or other social media platform that we use.
Information We Collect Automatically
We also collect some information automatically:
• Log Information: Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our Services–for example, when you create or make changes to your listings on ADirectory.net.au.
• Usage Information: We collect information about your usage of our Services. We use this information to, for example, provide our Services to you, as well as get insights on how people use our Services, so we can make our Services better.
• Location Information: We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Services from certain geographic regions. We may also collect information about your precise location via our mobile apps (when, for example, you post a listing with location information) if you allow us to do so through your mobile device operating system’s permissions.
• Stored Information: We may access information stored on your mobile device via our mobile app. We access this stored information through your device operating system’s permissions
• Interactions with Other Users’ Sites: We collect some information about your interactions with other users’ sites while you are logged in to your account with us, such as your “Likes” and the fact that you commented on a particular post, so that we can, for example, recommend posts we think may interest you.
Information We Collect from Other Sources
We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your adirectory.net.au account through another service (like Google) or if you connect your website or account to a social media service (like Twitter), we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.
We may also get information, such as a mailing address, from third party services about individuals who are not yet our users (…but we hope will be!), which we may use, for example, for marketing and advertising purposes like postcards and other mailers advertising our services.
Silverth policy in relation to Cookies, Beacons, Local Storage and Other technologies described below apply to all Silverth Pty Ltd properties, including those specifically designed for children. Parents and carers should be aware that if their children are using social media sites that were not designed for their age group, they will be exposed to the various tracking and analytic technologies applied by third parties when they access or share Silverth content on or via those sites.
1.2 Purposes for which we collect, use, and disclose personal information
The purposes for which we collect, use and disclose personal information include:
• to provide our services to you – for example, to set up and maintain your account, host your website, backup and restore your website, or charge you for any of our paid Services;
• to improve our products and services, including conducting surveys;
• to monitor and analyze trends and better understand how users interact with our Services, which helps us improve our Services and make them easier to use;
• To measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of our advertising, and better understand user retention and attrition–for example, we may analyze how many individuals purchased a plan after receiving a marketing message or the features used by those who continue to use our Services after a certain length of time;
• To monitor and prevent any problems with our Services, protect the security of our Services, detect and prevent fraudulent transactions and other illegal activities, fight spam, and protect the rights and property of Silverth and others, which may result in us declining a transaction or the use of our Services;
• to manage our relationship with you, including:
(a) communicating with you about our products or services, including providing information about products or services which we consider may be of interest to you;
(b) billing you for any products or services that we charge for;

(d) managing any request by you to return or exchange a product at a later date; and
(e) to otherwise offer you assistance, including, by providing technical support;

• for statistical and research purposes;
• to obtain professional services as required including legal, accounting or insurance services;
• if permitted or required by law;
• otherwise with your consent; or
• for purposes directly related to any one or more of the above.
We will not send you unsolicited direct marketing emails, without your prior consent, unless we are permitted to do so by law. We will always give you the option to opt out of further communications. We may send you electronic communications for account administration purposes for so long as you are a registered user or customer of Silverth.
