1. Terms & Conditions

Please read these terms and conditions carefully. We reserve the right to review and change any of these terms and conditions by updating our Website, our services and these terms and conditions at our sole discretion. When we update these terms and conditions, we will use reasonable endeavours to provide notice of updates to you. Any changes to these terms and conditions take immediate effect from the date of their publication by us, and you accept the changed terms and conditions by your subsequent use of the Website and/or our services and/or the Software. Before you continue, we recommend you keep a copy of these terms and conditions for your records.

  • log in and/or subscribe to the Software (whether for your own use and/or for the use of persons invited by you through your subscription), and/or
  • purchase goods and services from us,

you and any entity or firm you are authorised to represent, as well as any other person you invite to use the Software as part of your subscription, agree to enter into these terms and conditions which, together with the terms and conditions on our Website and any other documents incorporated by reference into this agreement, constitute:

  • a legally binding contract;
  • in the instance that you are subscribing to the Software, a licence,

between you and Quotimation (“the Contract”). This Contract is not transferable and is non-exclusive.

You are responsible to ensure that anyone you invite to use your subscription must comply with this Contract.

You agree not to use, nor permit any third party to use, the Software or content in a manner that violates any applicable law, regulation or this Contract. You also agree you will not:

  • reproduce, modify, copy, deconstruct, sell, trade or resell the Software;
  • make the Software available in any form on any file-sharing or application hosting service

3. Fees and Payment

Fees will be calculated in accordance with the Quotimation Pricing Schedule (as made available by Quotimation from time to time on the Website) (“Pricing Schedule”).

Unless stated otherwise, Fees are charged in Australian dollars and are expressed exclusive of GST (which applies in addition where so required by the GST law).

Fees will be due and payable to Quotimation by you in accordance with the Pricing Schedule, which will, unless stated otherwise, be upon subscription or purchase (as the case may be). Fees are as set out on the Website and the Pricing Schedule and Quotimation reserves the right to negotiate Fees on a case by case basis.

Fees for subscriptions may in some instances be automatically renewed and charged on a monthly or annual basis (as applicable) until you elect to cancel your subscription or it is terminated in accordance with this Contract. We may offer you a free trial but if you continue to use our Software after the trial you will then become liable for and must pay the Fees in accordance with this Contract.

Your subscription continues for the period covered by the Fees paid or payable. At the end of each billing period, these terms automatically continue for a further period of the same duration as the previous one, provided you continue to pay the Fees in accordance with the relevant pricing.

Your subscription will automatically expire in an event of default in payment i.e. credit card expiry or your plan type.


4. What the Fee includes

Fees are as set out on the Website and the Pricing Schedule and Quotimation reserves the right to negotiate Fees on a case by case basis..

Quotimation endeavours to provide highly functioning Software and to provide all necessary assistance to ensure that you can successfully use the Software at all times. However, Quotimation cannot guarantee that the Software will work under all conditions or on all devices. The Software relies on technical factors such as high speed internet access and a performant browser. Without limiting applicable consumer protection laws which cannot be excluded, Quotimation is not responsible for any failures of the Software due to issues such as your computer hardware or software, human or system usage error, internet or electricity outages, or the inability of a party to access or maintain access to high speed internet.

In the event of a failure of technology due to the Software itself, Quotimation’s liability will be limited to the resupply of the Software to you. In the event of a failure of technology which causes a delay in the delivery of the service due to no fault of Quotimation, Quotimation will use its best endeavours to provide the service as soon as possible at a mutually convenient time.

To cancel or change your subscription, please contact us. Once you cancel your subscription, Quotimation will cease to automatically renew the subscription from the end of the term in which the subscription was cancelled. You will still need to pay all relevant Fees up to and including the day of cancellation.


5. Professional Advice

Quotimation is not a professional services firm of any sort, and is not in the business of giving any kind of professional advice. We may provide you with information we think might be useful in running a business, or you may seek assistance from our help-desk, but this should not be seen as a substitute for professional advice and we are not liable for your use of the information in that way.


6. Your data and use of our website and Quotimation managed cloud services

Quotimation Software is a flexible product that may be hosted in Quotimation managed cloud services or on your managed devices. If Quotimation Software resides on your managed devices then all data management and all hosting responsibility resides entirely with you.

If Quotimation Software resides in Quotimation managed cloud services then the following applies.

Your data is stored in data centres typically operated by NEXTDC which comply with recognised international and national security standards.

Data is protected by user authentication, data encryption, network protection and security monitoring mechanisms.

Data is hosted in Australia or in your home country unless you consent to an alternative location.

To the extent that your data comprises personal information, we recognise our legal obligations under applicable privacy and data protection laws, specifically the requirement to ensure that such information remains secure, free from misuse, interference and loss, and free from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

We implement security procedures to help protect your data from security attacks. All content supplied by you and generated by the Software will be securely stored and will not be released to anyone except in accordance with our privacy policy or in accordance with any agreement with you. However, given the nature of the internet:

  • we cannot guarantee that any data transmission is totally secure. Whilst we take precautions to protect information, we do not warrant and cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us. You, therefore, transmit information to us at your own risk. However, once we receive data, we will take reasonable steps to preserve its security. If you become aware of any problems with the security of your data, please contact us immediately;
  • we cannot guarantee that our Website and Software are free from viruses, malware, fault, human error or other conditions which could damage, use or interfere with your data or computer systems. You must take your own precautions to ensure that your systems are not infected with any such code and assume the risk of any damage or loss as a result of using our Website and Software.

You promise that you will keep your information (including a current email address) up to date. You are responsible for providing true, accurate and complete information and for verifying the accuracy of any information that you use from our services for your legal, tax and compliance obligations. You are also responsible for protecting your username and password from getting stolen or misused.

You must ensure that your use of our Website, our services, the Software and your data is at all times compliant with all applicable local, state, federal and international laws and regulations (“Laws”). You represent and warrant that:

  • you have obtained all necessary rights, releases, privacy consents and permissions to provide data to us and grant the rights to us in these terms and conditions; and
  • your data and its transfer to and use by us, as authorised by you under these terms and conditions, does not and will not violate any Laws (including without limitation those relating to export control and electronic communications) or the rights of any third party, including without limitation any intellectual property rights, rights of privacy, or rights of publicity, and any use, collection and disclosure authorised is not inconsistent with the terms of any applicable privacy policies.

When you enter or upload your data into the Software, you are responsible for your content and we don’t own that data, but you grant us a licence to use, copy, transmit, store, analyse, and back up all data you submit to us through the Software, including personal data of yourself and others, to enable you to use our services, allow us to improve, develop and protect our services, create new services, communicate with you about your subscription and send you information we think may be of interest to you.

When you use our Software, we may create anonymised statistical data from your data and usage, including through aggregation. Once anonymised, we may use it for our own purposes, such as to provide and improve our services, to develop new services or product offerings, to identify business trends, and for other uses we communicate to you.

We may remove or delete your data from our Website or records without notice within a reasonable period of time after the termination of any services and you acknowledge and accept that we have no obligation to retain, or to return to you or any other person, any of your data or your materials after the conclusion or termination of the services.

Where practicable, we will allow you to deal with us on an anonymous or pseudonymous basis. If you do not wish to provide personal information to us, then you do not have to do so, however it may affect your use of our Website, our Software and our products and services.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. We encourage you to review this Policy periodically to stay informed about our collection, use and disclosure of personal information. Your continued use of our Website, our Software and our products and services or any other content, products, software and services covered by this Policy constitutes your agreement to this Policy and any updates.

By using the Quotimation Website, our Software and our products and services and providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your account information and usage.

If you link to or use other websites, software or products and services, please review the privacy policies posted at those websites. This policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, any third party websites which may be accessible through links from our Website, our Software or our products and services.


2. Collection of Personal Information

“Personal information,” as used in this Policy, is personally identifiable information, such as your first and last name, mailing address, email address, billing information, IP addresses, demographics, passwords, telephone numbers and/or other online contact information. “Personal Information” can also include data that is usually non-personally identifiable (such as location data, data about personal attributes or online identifiers) but that, taken together with other collected data, identifies a natural person, either directly or indirectly.

We collect personal information, as well as non-personally identifiable information on our Website, our Software and when you use or purchase our products and services. We try only to collect personal information about you that we need for the operation of our Website, our Software and our products and services, and to market and promote our Website, our Software and our products and services. The kinds of personal information that we collect and hold about you may depend on the circumstances in which the information is collected. In the process of running our Website, our Software and providing our products and services, there is a range of personal information collected about our current and prospective subscribers and users, current and prospective clients, as well as contractors, employees and other service providers. This information can include name, email address, mailing and street address, phone number, age, profession, occupation, job title and more.

“Sensitive Information” includes information about a person’s racial or ethnic origin, religious beliefs or affiliations, political opinions, philosophical beliefs, health or genetic information, sexual preference or information about whether an individual is a member of a professional or trade association or union. Sensitive information might be collected by us during the course of surveys administered by Quotimation or its affiliated third parties, but only if volunteered by Users with their consent.

You can choose not to actively volunteer information to us. However if you do provide information to us when asked or prompted, including sensitive information you are also providing consent for Quotimation to collect, store and use that information as necessary for the purpose of collecting it. Where you provide us with unsolicited personal information, we will retain this information where it falls within our primary purposes for collection of personal information (as stated in this Privacy Policy).

If your personal information is collected by us from a third party, we are under no obligation to inform you of the collection, but such information will be subject to this policy and will be accessible by you on request, subject to any limitations or exceptions in the law.

The length of time we keep your personal information depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it (for example, to provide you with a service you’ve requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

We’ll retain your personal information for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of time afterwards where we have an ongoing business need to retain it. Following that period, we’ll make sure it’s deleted or anonymised.


3. How we collect your personal information

We will only collect or monitor any personal information about you with your consent including as provided in this Privacy Policy or if it is otherwise lawful to do so. The only personal information collected by us is what has been collected by or provided to us in accordance with this Privacy Policy or has been provided to us lawfully by third parties, including our clients, customers and service providers.

We collect information you provide to us in optional, voluntary submissions, including but not limited to:

  • registration forms, surveys, user profiles, your comments and public interactions, when you provide your name, email address or other information to us voluntarily;

  • curriculum vitae submissions, where you provide your personal information to us.

We may monitor and record calls and other electronic communications that you make to us in certain circumstances. For example, calls to us may be monitored and recorded for training and customer service purposes.

We use social networking software and services such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to communicate with the public about us. When you communicate with us using these software and services we may collect your personal information. The social networking service will also handle your personal information for its own purposes. These websites have their own privacy policies.

We create and record information automatically when you visit our Website.

We may track activity relating to your interaction with our email communications and with links contained within our email communications and our Website. Some cookies may be associated with personal information about you and some may not. This information is generally collected, used and stored to deliver relevant messaging and enhance your experience when visiting our Website.

We may also obtain your personal information from legitimate third party sources including social media, list brokers, referral agents and other data providers or organisations that share data in circumstances where it is lawful and/or you have given permission for them to do so.

We may use analytics tools and other third party technologies, to collect non-personally identifiable information in the form of various usage and user metrics when you use our Website, our Software and our products and services.

4. Security, Integrity and Storage

We take measures, including the implementation and maintenance of physical, electronic, and managerial procedures, in an effort to assure the security, integrity, and accuracy of all personal information that we collect.

We are committed to ensuring that the information you provide is secure. We use reasonable technical, administrative and physical measures to safeguard personal information. However, no personal information shared on the internet can be 100% guaranteed to be secure. Users are responsible for the access and security of their own computers.

We also use this personal information to personalise and display advertisements and other content for you, and we may drop a cookie on your browser linked to data that is known about you so that third party advertisers can show you more relevant ads. You are entitled to opt out of personalised marketing and advertising at any time.

In some instances, the non-personally identifiable information collected from our Website, our Software and services may be linked with information collected by a third party source, such as Google Analytics, to become personally identifiable.
