Our Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy and will do everything within our power to ensure we maintain the confidentiality of, and security around, your personal information that is contained within our client records.

We will never distribute trade, lease or sell your personal information to any other organisation.

Why we collect information about you and your business

EOS limits its collection and use of personal information to that which is necessary for us to work on your accounts and for the functioning of our business. We need this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, for internal record keeping and for continuous improvement of our products and services.

We collect personal information from you for the following specific purposes:

  • to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or government request, and
  • to protect the services, products or rights of EOS.

If we collect any personal information for the purpose of research, we will use this information in a combined form (i.e. not individually traceable to you) for business analysis purposes.

Your consent for the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information

Registration for our products and services will constitute your consent for us to collect and use personal information under this Privacy Policy.

We will seek your consent for any new uses and disclosures of your personal information, before we use or disclose your details for a new purpose.

In certain circumstances however, EOS will not be required to inform and obtain your consent for use and/or disclosure of your personal information to a third party.

These include situations where there may be:

  • an investigation of a breach of an agreement,
  • contravention of laws,
  • an emergency where the life, health or security of an individual is threatened, or
  • a requirement to collect a debt.

You may withdraw your consent for collection, use and disclosure of personal information at any time by writing to or emailing us. If you withdraw your consent, we must suspend or terminate our products and services. Your account will become inactive.

If your account becomes inactive, EOS will keep your personal information only for those purposes which are established by law, and for archival record purposes.

Safeguarding your personal information

We have taken, and will continue to take, reasonable steps to protect your personal information against misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

We have put in place suitable organisational procedures, and technological and physical measures to secure the information we collect.

Our methods of protection include:

  • technological measures – passwords and encryption
  • physical measures – secure filing cabinets.
