About this privacy policy

This is the privacy policy (Privacy Policy) for Advanced Detailing and Design Applications Australia Pty Limited ACN 615 937 445, Advanced Detailing and Design Applications Holdings Pty Limited ACN 615 932 986, and Advanced Detailing and Design Applications UK Limited Company No. 104 815 16 (ADDA, ADDA Group, we, our, us). We value and respect your privacy and take the protection of your personal information seriously.

We have prepared this Privacy Policy to inform users and prospective users of our software as-a-service subscription service and any of our other products and services (‘you’) of the personal information that ADDA collects and holds about you, as well as other non-personal data that we collect and hold, and how we use that information.

This Privacy Policy also provides information about your privacy rights as an individual and how to contact us or the appropriate regulator if you have any privacy concerns. This Privacy Policy may change from time to time and it is therefore important that you review it regularly. Any change to this Privacy Policy will become effective when we publish the revised Privacy Policy on our website at adda-bim.com.

What personal information do we collect and handle?

Personal information generally means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. We may collect and use different kinds of personal information related to our business activities and when it is necessary and relevant to our relationship with you. This may include:

  • General information: such as your name and title;
  • Contact information: such as your physical address, phone number and email address;
  • Transaction information: such as information about products and services you have purchased from us or use;
  • Project information: such as the information about the projects you are working on, including your project plans and drawings;

  • Marketing information: includes your preferences in receiving marketing communications from us and any sales data relating to purchases of our products and services.

We do not collect any sensitive personal information about you (this includes details about your race or ethnic origin, political opinions or associations, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade association or union, sexual orientation or practices, criminal record information). Nor do we collect any information about your health, genetic background or biometric personal information.

Our products and services are not intended for use by children and should only be accessed by individuals of at least 18 years old or the age of majority (the Age Limit). If you are under the Age Limit, please do not provide us your personal information. We will upon notice or discovery take all reasonably efforts to erase or destroy any personal information that may have been collected or stored by us about those under the Age Limit without our knowledge.

How do we collect your personal information?

We collect personal information from you wherever it is reasonable and practical to do so for the purposes described in the section headed “Why do we collect your personal information” below. We may collect personal information from you via:

  • information you provide to us directly, for example when you communicate or interact with us by telephone, email, online (including through our products and services and website) or in person;
  • your response to any surveys or marketing materials we send out; 
  • interactions between you, other users of our products and services, and our staff; and
  • information that we automatically collect when you use our products and services to enable us to manage your subscription, use of our products and services and to provide you with technical support.

In some instances, we collect information about you from the following other sources for the purposes described in the section headed “Why do we collect your personal information” below:

  • the company or organisation that authorises you to access and use our products and services;
  • our suppliers and other third parties who provide services to us; and
  • publicly available sources.

You must only provide us with the personal information of someone else if you have that person’s consent to disclose that information to us and for us to use that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Why do we collect your personal information?

We collect, hold, use and disclose information, including your personal information, primarily for business purposes that are directly related to our business activities and when it is necessary and relevant to our relationship with you. However, we may also collect information, including your personal information, for related reasons, including:

  • verifying your identity and information;
  • understanding your requirements in order to provide you with a product solution or service;
  • to set up, administer, and manage our products, systems and services;
  • to respond to your comments or questions, including advice on construction solutions, software solutions and service offerings;
  • to fulfil requests for products, services, functionality, support and information for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis and testing;
  • to assess and investigate any complaints made about our products or services;
  • to manage, train and develop our employees, contractors, and representatives;
  • to manage complaints and disputes (including to defend or exercise legal claims), and report to dispute resolution bodies;
  • for administrative purposes including product and service research and development, and business strategy, including managing the delivery of our services and products via the ways we communicate with you;
  • to create aggregated and de-identified data relating to use of our product solutions and services and projects that use our products and services;
  • to detect and prevent fraudulent activity;
  • for the purposes of marketing our products, systems and services; and
  • to comply with applicable laws and regulations.

The legal basis for collecting and using personal information will depend on the specific circumstances in which it is collected. However we will collect personal information from you as follows:

  • Consent: where you have given consent to ADDA’s use of the personal information for one or more purposes;
  • Contract performance: it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party;
  • Legal obligation: where we need to use your personal information to comply with a legal obligation (e.g. to defend and exercise legal claims);
  • Vital interests: where we need to process your personal information in order to protect the vital interests of you or another natural person (e.g. where you require urgent assistance);
  • Public interests: where we need to process your personal information in order to carry out a task in the public interest (e.g. public health and safety); and
  • Legitimate interests: where it is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by ADDA and those interests are balanced against your rights to information privacy (e.g. to communicate useful content updates).

For additional or specific information on our legal basis for processing your information, please contact our Privacy Officer using the contact details at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.

Who might we disclose your personal information to?

We may disclose information, including your personal information, to various third parties for any of the purposes identified above. The types of third parties with whom we disclose personal information include: 

  • our service providers, including providers of campaign, promotion, accounting, auditing, legal, banking, payment, debt collection, delivery, data processing, data analysis, document management, research, investigation, technology services, retailers and training providers;
  • government agencies for reporting and compliance purposes; 
  • various third party suppliers and partners, which provide services and support for our programs and operations; 
  • to members of the ADDA Group, which provide support for our operations and services to you;
  • persons who you authorise to access and use our products and services or who have authorised you to access and use our products and services;
  • to a third party organisation in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets; and
  • your organisation and representatives.

In order to comply with our legal obligations, respond to complaints and claims, and investigate and protect ourselves and third parties against any activity that we reasonably suspect to be fraudulent, we may also disclose your personal information to law enforcement agencies, regulatory authorities and governments around the world and their service providers in connection with their investigations, screening or other functions.

Transfers to other countries

ADDA may disclose information to other members of the ADDA Group, who may be located in Australia, India, the United States of America and the United Kingdom and in other countries in which we do business. ADDA may also subcontract certain activities and share your personal information with third parties located in countries outside of New Zealand, Australia and the European Union for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. The countries in which these organisations are located will vary, but, in the course of our business operations, we generally disclose personal information to organisations located in Australia including for hosting and data storage, India, Canada, the United States of America and the United Kingdom. Such transfers are made in order to provide the services and carry out the activities specified in this Privacy Policy. 

When we disclose information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, it may be accessed from, transferred to, and/or stored outside the country in which you are located. The privacy laws in that country may be of a lower standard than those in your own country. In these situations ADDA may not be accountable for the actions of those recipients and you may have limited or no rights under the applicable privacy regime.

What if we can’t collect your personal information?

If you do not provide us with the personal information we need, some or all of the following may occur:

  • we may not be able to provide you with our products and services; and
  • we may not be able to respond to your requests for information.

Direct marketing communications

From time to time we may send you direct marketing communications regarding our products and services. 

We may contact you by electronic messages (e.g. email), online (e.g. through our website), by mail and by other means, unless you opt out or we are subject to legal restrictions. You may opt out of receiving electronic messages from us at any time by contacting our Privacy Officer via the contact details at the bottom of this Privacy Policy or by using the opt out mechanism included in our marketing messages.

We will provide our reasons if we deny your request for access to, or correction of, your personal information. Where we decide not to make a requested correction to your personal information and you disagree, you may ask us to make a note of your requested correction with the information we hold about you.
