Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is applicable to all companies within the SalesPond Group (which includes SalesPond, Datalist and Podiem).

Last updated: November 2021

Laws and regulations we adhere to

We are actively monitoring privacy laws globally, and, using the highest standards across them, have developed policies and processes that provide assurance within the company and to our clients, partners and interested parties, that the availability, integrity and confidentiality of their information will be maintained.

We adhere to the core requirements of the Australian Privacy Act that are set out in the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs). The APPs set out how an organisation such as SalesPond should collect, hold, use, and disclose personal information. The APPs also give individuals and households a right to know what information an organisation holds about him or her, and a right to correct it if it is wrong.

This Privacy Policy sets out SalesPond’s common global approach for handling personal information that is regulated by the above acts.

Types of information we collect

Most of the information we use is from publicly available sources however, the list below outlines the types of items we would gather, however not all of these items will be asked for any single service.

Name (First, Middle, Last) Job Title Department Company Name Phone Number Email Address

When collecting Personal Information our first preference is to collect the information directly from you, as that would be the most accurate. However, in some cases, we are provided personal information about you from our clients, or information suppliers. In these cases we can require them to assure us you have provided your consent for its use, before we use that information.

If we determine your consent has not been provided, we will de-identify or destroy that personal information.


Our internet facing applications collect certain personal information by automated means, using technologies such as cookies, session cookies, pixel tags, browser analysis tools, server logs and web beacons. We treat this information as personal information when it is associated with the individual’s contact information. In many cases, this information is not linked to any personal information you may provide and cannot be used to identify you (e.g. website traffic patterns).

However, before we use any cookies or similar programs we will ask for you (see above) for your consent and provide you the means, if you wish to limit or stop the use of cookies.

Pixel tags and web beacons

These are graphic images placed on website pages or in emails that allow us to determine whether the recipient has performed a specific action. When the recipient accesses these pages or open or click an email, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our web pages and promotions.

For more details about cookies and how to change your cookie preferences see here

Use and disclosure of information

We use personal information about you, only for the purposes contained in a consent received from you, or from our customers.

We will not disclose information that personally identifies you to any third party other than what you have consented to or otherwise required by local Law.

Direct Marketing

If we ask you to agree to allow us or our associates to “direct market” to you, you will be provided the option to accept or decline before we proceed. The default answer will be “No”.

Third Parties & Your Information

We will only collect, store, use or disclose personal information that you have provided consent, either directly or via our clients, unless we are required by law to protect our rights or property (or those of any third party), or to avoid injury to any person, e.g. a court order.

In order to deliver the services that we provide, we, on occasions must disclose your personal information to other organisations, only in relation to providing our services. For example, government agencies as required by law, banks and financial institutions, superannuation funds, health funds and contracted service providers (sometimes called SubProcessors).

We, when needed, will share personal information with business partners, but only, with your consent, either directly or as verified by our customers, and only to the extent required to provide our services.

We take steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information. These include:

  • Inserting these obligations into our contract
  • Doing detailed security and privacy risk analysis of our subProcessors to ascertain their level of compliance matches our own. In some cases we reject SubProcessors who do not meet these standards

Disclosure of Information Overseas

By default we store information in the country we collected it but, when required, will transfer to companies in foreign countries some of your personal information to fulfil the purpose for which it was provided. We will however before doing any such transfers:

  • Verify consent has been provided, as per above
  • Ensure Privacy and Security obligations are covered contractually
  • Do detailed security and privacy risk analysis of our subProcessors to ascertain their level of compliance matches our own

Linked Sites

We have relationships with third party companies who may place advertisements on our sites, as well as perform tracking and reporting functions for us. These partners may place cookies on an individual’s computer when they visit our Sites, in order to display targeted advertisements. These partners are not allowed to collect personal information in this process, and we do not give any personal information to them as part of this process.

Our Sites may link directly to websites operated by third parties (Linked Sites), these Sites are not operated by us. We encourage you to always read the applicable privacy policy of any Linked Site on entering the Linked Site. We cannot control and thus are not responsible for the content or practices of the Linked Sites nor their privacy policies regarding the collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information. However, you still have the option of managing their cookies – see

How long will we keep your information?

Only as long as it is needed to perform the purpose it was collected for, or longer if required by local law.


Once we no longer need your information we will either destroy or anonymise (de-identify) it.


We protect your personal information in a secure environment using industry best practice including, among other things:

  • Firewalls
  • Data encryption, both at rest and when transmitted
  • Intrusion detection
  • Anti-Virus and Anti Malware Protection
  • Constant upgrades and patches of systems to minimise the risk of hacking
  • Site monitoring security
  • Limiting internal access to personal information to those personnel who need access to the information in order to do their jobs
  • These personnel are limited in number, have police checks and sign NDAs
  • N+1+ redundancy of key systems
  • Others

These security measures are designed to ensure your personal information is not subject to unauthorised access, loss or misuse however, this security cannot be guaranteed procedures to promptly investigate the incident and determine if there has been a data breach involving personal information, and if so, to assess if it is a breach that would require notification. If it is, we will notify affected parties in accordance with Privacy Law requirements.
