Privacy policy

Riva Technology And Entertainment (“we” or “us”) understands that your privacy is important to you. We are committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your personal data, which is any information that is capable of identifying you as an individual person. This Privacy Policy describes how we handle and protect your personal data in connection with Riva Technology And Entertainment’ business activities, such as events and client services, and on websites, applications, and communications that post a link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, “the Sites”), in our capacity as data controllers.

Information we collect
Riva Technology And Entertainment collects personal data in the course of its business activities, including in connection with some client services. We also collect personal data on certain areas of the Sites when you enquire about jobs, register your interest via the Contact form or create a user profile on AutoloMATE®. The personal data collected varies and may include information that you provide, such as your full name, email address, telephone number, and background information required to apply for a job.

We may also automatically collect information about the devices you use to interact with our Sites. The information we automatically collect may include IP address, device identifier, web browser, and browsing information collected through cookies, web beacons, pixels, clear gifs, and other similar technologies (collectively “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies”) on our Sites. We may also automatically collect information about how you use the Sites, such as what you have searched for and viewed on the Sites. The information automatically collected may be associated with a unique identifier as well as with any other personal data you have provided.

Use of information
Riva Technology And Entertainment uses your personal data to fulfil your requests for information, process your requests to participate in events, personalise the content that you view or receive on the Sites, evaluate and improve our services, recruit and evaluate job applicants, analyse the Sites’ performance and functioning, prevent fraud, enforce our terms of use, comply with all applicable laws and corporate reporting obligations, enforce Riva Technology And Entertainment’ agreements, and accomplish other purposes you may initiate or request. In some situations, the collection of personal data may be required for the operation of the Sites, or we may use it in the course of our business activities, including in connection with some client services, for example, to provide certain services or products such as the AutoloMATE® platform. We may combine and/or analyse personal data to evaluate and offer content and services most relevant to you. We may keep any of your personal data on file and use it to contact you.

Riva Technology And Entertainment and its service providers may use first and third party Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies, including web beacons, to manage our Sites and our services and collect analytics about how you use them.

Please refer to our Cookie Policy section for more details regarding our use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies.

Our Sites do not track you by collecting personal data about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Accordingly, we do not alter our data collection and use practices in response to “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers.

The legal basis by which we process your personal data
Our processing of your personal data for the purposes mentioned above is based:

– in part, on our legitimate interests in promoting and protecting Riva Technology And Entertainment, building and maintaining relationships, recruitment, and providing our services;
– in part, on your consent, for example, if you create a user profile, or contact us, or for business purposes that support web operations such as understanding and enhancing the quality of your experience on our web sites;
– in part, to comply with the law, when certain information is necessary to satisfy our legal or regulatory obligations.

Disclosure of personal data: data recipients and international data transfers
Personal data collected in the course of Riva Technology And Entertainment business activities, including in connection with some client services, as well as on the Sites may be transferred from time to time to Riva Technology And Entertainment personnel across our global organisation, as well as to our third-party service providers located throughout the world, including in countries where the local law may grant you fewer rights than you have in your own country. Additionally, the Sites may be viewed and hosted by Riva Technology And Entertainment and our third party service providers anywhere in the world. Where required by law, we have put in place legal mechanisms designed to ensure adequate data protection of your personal data that is processed by Riva Technology And Entertainment affiliates and third party service providers, including the transfer of your personal data to countries other than the one in which you reside. If you would like more information about these legal mechanisms, please contact us at the address below. By using any of the Sites and providing information on any of them, you voluntarily consent to such trans-border transfer and hosting of such information.

Riva Technology And Entertainment will not intentionally disclose or transfer (and will take reasonable steps to prevent the unauthorised or accidental disclosure of) your personal data to third parties without your consent or as otherwise permitted by law, whether for such third parties’ own marketing purposes or otherwise, except as follows. Riva Technology And Entertainment may provide access to your personal data to third-party service providers engaged by Riva Technology And Entertainment to provide services related to the Sites as well as related to Riva Technology And Entertainment’ business activities, including in connection with some client services, in the manner agreed upon in our client services agreements. We maintain processes designed to ensure that any processing of personal data by third party service providers is consistent with this Privacy Policy and protects the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your personal data.

We also may share your personal data with third party service providers who perform services and functions on our behalf to support our interactions with you, including, for example, processing recruitment materials, administering surveys or contests, or communicating with you.

In addition, we may disclose information about you:

– If we are required to do so by law or legal process;
– To law enforcement authorities or other government officials;
– When we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity;
– If disclosure is necessary to protect the vital interests of a person;
– To enforce our Terms of use;
– To protect our property, services and legal rights;
– To prevent fraud against Riva Technology And Entertainment, affiliates and/or business partners;
– To support auditing, compliance, and corporate governance functions; or
– To comply with any and all applicable laws.

Link to third party sites
Riva Technology And Entertainment may provide links to third-party websites or information as a service to our users. If you use these links, you will leave the Sites. Such links do not constitute or imply an endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation by Riva Technology And Entertainment of the third party, the third party website, or the information contained therein, and Riva Technology And Entertainment shall not be responsible or liable for your use thereof. Such use shall be subject to the terms of use and privacy policies applicable to those sites.

Security
Riva Technology And Entertainment has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security to protect personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorised Riva Technology And Entertainment personnel and third-party service providers are provided access to personal data, and these employees and service providers are required to treat this information as confidential. Note that we have selected third-party providers on the basis of their certifications, stated policies or historical record for maintaining confidentiality; all our suppliers are required to treat information as confidential. Despite these precautions, however, Riva Technology And Entertainment cannot provide an absolute guarantee that unauthorised persons will not obtain access to your personal data.

Data retention
Riva Technology And Entertainment retains personal data, as necessary, for the duration of the relevant business relationship.

We may also retain personal data for longer than the duration of the business relationship should we need to retain it to protect ourselves against legal claims, use it for analysis or historical record-keeping, or comply with our information management policies and schedules. If you request that we delete your personal data, Riva Technology And Entertainment will make reasonable attempts to delete all instances of the data in their entirety, in line with legal requirements such as the EU GDPR. For requests for access, corrections, or deletion, please refer to the “Your Rights” section of this Privacy Policy.

Children
The Sites are not designed for or directed at children 16 years of age or younger, and Riva Technology And Entertainment does not intentionally collect or maintain personal data about anyone under this age.

Your rights
Where granted by applicable law, you may have the right to request access to the personal data that we have collected about you for the purposes of reviewing, modifying, or requesting deletion of the data. You may also have the right to request a copy of the personal data that we have collected about you and to have any inaccuracies in that data corrected. In certain circumstances, you may also request that we cease processing your personal data.

If you would like to make a request to access, review, or correct the personal data we have collected about you, or to discuss how we process your personal data, please contact us at info@rte.com.au. To help protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to your personal data. We will make reasonable attempts to promptly investigate, comply with, or otherwise respond to your requests as may be required by applicable law. Different laws may prevent us from providing access to your personal data or otherwise fully complying with your request depending upon the circumstances and the request, such as for example, where producing your information may reveal the identity of someone else. We reserve the right to charge an appropriate fee for complying with your request where allowed by applicable law, and/or deny your requests where they may be manifestly unfounded, and/or excessive, or otherwise objectionable or unwarranted under applicable law.

In addition, and where granted by local law, you have the legal right to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection authority.
