Privacy Policy

Last updated on: 22 Feb 2022

The ZAP group of companies (we, us, our) provide a web-application as a hosted cloud service to assist businesses in the areas of business intelligence, data management, data warehousing, reporting and analytics.

We understand the importance of, and are committed to, protecting your personal information.  This Privacy Policy explains how we manage your personal information (that is, information or an opinion about you, whether true or not, which identifies you or from which your identity is reasonably identifiable), including our obligations and your rights in respect of our dealings with your personal information.

Please take a moment to read our Privacy Policy as it describes what happens to your personal information that is collected via our website at (our Website), and in the course of providing our services to you.

This Privacy Policy is our general privacy policy, but additional privacy terms may apply, to deal with relevant laws in your jurisdiction (Jurisdiction Specific Terms). To the extent that they might differ from this Privacy Policy, the Jurisdiction Specific Terms for your jurisdiction will override the terms of this Privacy Policy.

How we collect your personal information

We will collect and hold your personal information in a fair and lawful manner, and not in an intrusive way.  Where it is reasonably practical to do so, we will collect your personal information directly from you.  


We may collect the personal information you directly give us through some of the following means:

  • when you make an inquiry, or use or register for our products and services (free or paid), or purchase and license our products through our Website;

  • in administering and performing any contracts with service providers;

  • when you contact us via telephone or email;

  • from correspondence (whether in writing or electronically);

  • through any mobile applications provided by our organization;

  • while conducting customer satisfaction and market research surveys;

  • when administering any of our services; and

  • as otherwise required to manage our business

You can also log in to our site using sign-in services such as Azure Active Directory. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form.

However, in certain cases we may collect personal information from publicly available sources and third parties, such as suppliers, recruitment agencies, contractors, our clients and business partners.

If we collect personal information about you from a third party we will, where appropriate, request that the third party inform you that we are holding such information, how we will use and disclose it, and that you may contact us to gain access to and correct and update the information.

Types of personal information we collect

The type of personal information we may collect can include (but is not limited to), your name, postal address, email address, phone numbers, billing information and, if applicable, employment information.

Where you do not wish to provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with requested services.

Our purposes for handling your personal information

As a general rule, we only process personal information for purposes that would be considered relevant and reasonable in the circumstances.

We collect, hold, use and disclose personal information to:

  • offer and provide you with our products and services;

  • manage and administer those products and services, including account keeping procedures;

  • communicate with you, including (but not limited to), emailing you tax invoices, dispatch and tracking information, returns and exchange authorisations;

  • comply with our legal and regulatory obligations; and

  • otherwise to manage our business.


We will not use or disclose your personal information for any other purpose unless you have consented to that use or disclosure.

We may disclose personal information between our organizations or to third parties such as our suppliers, organizations that provide us with technical and support services, or our professional advisers, where permitted by law. If we disclose information to a third party, we generally require that the third party protect your information to the same extent that we do.

Protection of personal information

We will hold personal information as either secure physical records, electronically on our intranet system, in cloud storage, and in some cases, records on third party servers, which may be located overseas.

We maintain appropriate physical, procedural and technical security for our offices and information storage facilities so as to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of personal information.  This also applies to disposal of personal information.

We further protect personal information by restricting access to personal information to only those who need access to the personal information do their job. Physical, electronic and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of your personal information.

For more information about the range of policies in place to provide a robust security environment, please visit our Cloud security page. We ensure the on-going adequacy of these measures by regularly reviewing them.

We will destroy or de-identify personal information once it is no longer needed for a valid purpose or required to be kept by law.

If we experience a security breach where your personal information is lost, stolen, accessed, used, disclosed, copied, modified or disposed of by any unauthorized person or in an unauthorized manner, we will notify you as soon as reasonably possible. If you reasonably believe that there has been unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, please contact our Privacy Officer.

Direct marketing

Like most businesses, marketing is important to our continued success.  We believe we have a unique range of products and services that we provide to customers at a high standard.  We therefore like to stay in touch with customers and let them know about new opportunities.  If you have opted to receive such emails may provide you with information about new products, services and promotions either from us,

You can, at any time, opt out of receiving marketing material by contacting us. If you are a customer, you agree and acknowledge that even if you opt out of receiving marketing material, we will still send you essential information that we are legally required to send you relating to the services we provide. Once you opt out of receiving marketing material from us, you agree and acknowledge that this removal from our distribution lists may take several business days after the date of your request to be removed.

In order to deliver our products and services to you, we may disclose personal information to other organizations to whom we outsource certain functions including bulk mailing and market research, but only in relation to providing our products and services to you. We take reasonable steps to ensure that these organizations are bound by privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.

We take our obligations to protect personal information very seriously and we make every effort to deal only with parties who share and demonstrate the same attitude.

We will not disclose your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes without your consent.

You may opt out at any time if you no longer wish to receive commercial messages from us.  You can make this request by contacting our Privacy Officer, or by using the unsubscribe function included in each marketing email.
