Advance Payroll Services (APS) is strongly committed to protecting your privacy while interacting with our services.
Information is collected from you and your company primarily to make it possible to provide you and your company with payroll services. Some information is necessary, such as your employee number, name and bank account. Other information is optional. It is entirely your choice whether to supply this information or not.
APS collects personal information. We will collect information that lets us know the specifics of who you are such as your name, email address, or postal address, when necessary or when it is provided to us by you or your company. With this information, APS can provide a range of payroll services.
How much of your personal information that you choose to disclose to APS is completely up to you and your company. The only way we know something about you personally is if you or your company provide it to us.
APS automatically gathers information on user activity on the website to monitor how the website is being used and where users are encountering errors. This helps us to improve the website’s usability and reliability.
Under normal circumstances, we treat this information as anonymous. However, we also record the user’s apparent identity and internet address (IP address) and these may be used when investigating possible security breaches.
APS will only use the personal information that you and your company have chosen to provide us for the purposes of depositing money into your nominated bank account, contacting you if necessary, and providing reports to your company. APS will not use it for any other purpose.
There will be occasions where it will be necessary for APS to disclose your personal information to third parties. We may be required by law to disclose the information, and we may be required to disclose your personal information to third parties to provide payroll services. However, the disclosure will only be made where it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which you or your company disclosed your personal information. Otherwise than stated above, we do not disclose personal information that you or your company may give us, such as your name, address, email address or telephone number, to any organisation or person outside APS. Since APS is an Australian business with all activities being carried out in Australia, we do not disclose your personal information to any overseas recipients.
Under no circumstances will APS sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.
You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password. If you received a temporary password when your account was set up, you must change it to one that only you know. The same applies if you forget your password and have to arrange a new password.
The APS website provides you and certain others authorised by your company with the ability to access your personal information and with the ability to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up to date.
APS operates secure information systems that are designed to protect your privacy and security and the integrity of our information systems.
