Data use and privacy

Thriday uses your data to provide our services to you. Our Privacy Notice and Policy is an important part of these terms and describes in more detail how we deal with personal data, like your name and email address.  A copy of the Privacy Notice and Policy can be found at www.thriday.com.au/legal-and-privacy.  

  1. Use of data: When you enter or upload your data into our services, 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 our services, 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; offer you new services from us or a partner; and send you information we think may be of interest to you based on what we can see in your data.
  1. Use of your own personal data: We respect your privacy and take data protection seriously. In addition to these terms, our Privacy Notice and Policy sets out in detail how we process your own personal data that you enter into Thriday, like your name and email address.
  1. Use of personal data you enter about others: Depending on where your contacts are based, our data processing terms may also apply to the personal data of others (such as your customers, suppliers and employees) that you enter into Thriday.
  1. Anonymised statistical data: When you use our services, we may create anonymised statistical data from your data and usage of our services, 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.
  1. Data breach notifications: Where we think there has been unauthorised access to personal data inside your subscription, we’ll let you know and give you information about what has happened. Depending on the nature of the unauthorised access, and the location of your affected contacts, you may be required to assess whether the unauthorised access must be reported to the contact and/or a relevant authority. We think you’re best placed to make this decision, because you’ll have the most knowledge about the personal data stored in your subscription

Confidential information

We take reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and expect that you’ll do the same for ours.

  1. Keeping it confidential: While using our services, you may share confidential information with us, and you may become aware of confidential information about us. You and we both agree to take reasonable steps to protect the other party’s confidential information from being accessed by unauthorised individuals. You or we may share each other’s confidential information with legal or regulatory authorities if required to do so

Security

We take security seriously and you must take it seriously too.  To help protect our services and your data, we use  added security features such as two-factor authentication.

  1. Security safeguards: We’ve invested in technical, physical and administrative safeguards to do our part to help keep your data safe and secure.  While we’ve taken steps to help protect your data, no method of electronic storage is completely secure and we cannot guarantee absolute security. We may notify you if we have reason to believe that someone has accessed (or may be able to access) your account without authorisation and we may also restrict access to certain parts of our services until you verify that access was by an authorised user.
  1. Account security features: We may introduce security features to make your account more secure, such as multi-factor authentication. We may require you to adopt some of these features. Where we make the use of security features optional, you’re responsible (meaning we’re not liable) for any consequences of not using those features. We strongly encourage you to use all optional security features.
  1. Doing your bit to secure your data: You have an important part to play by keeping your login details secure, not letting any other person use them, and by making sure you have strong security on your own systems. If you realise there’s been any unauthorised use of your password or any breach of security to your account or email address linked to your account, you need to let us know immediately. You also agree not to use free-form fields in any of Thriday’s systems or services to store personal data (unless it’s a field explicitly asking for personal data - like a first name or a last name), debit card details, credit card details, tax identifiers or transaction account details.  

Apps and third-party products

To get the best-in-class products, Thriday sometimes partners with other service providers to provide a service through the Thriday platform.

  1. Other services: Some of our services, are available through other companies’ services. These companies may have additional terms that apply to you when you use their products or services. You must ensure that you read all documents that pertain to the services you are using at www.thriday.com.au/legal-and-privacy.
  1. Third-party terms and descriptions: Sometimes, third-party products are subject to terms and conditions and privacy notices set by their providers. These include important things like pricing, refund policies, and how the provider will use your data that you make available to them. Be sure to read and make sure you agree to their terms and conditions and understand their approach. The descriptions of third-party products that we distribute, and any associated links, have been provided to us by the providers. While we make reasonable efforts to check the accuracy of the descriptions, the providers are solely responsible for any representations contained in those descriptions. We don’t endorse or assume any responsibility for third-party products.
  1. Use of your data to connect you to third party products: If you choose to connect your subscription to third-party products, we will use your personal data for that connection. Where we receive data as a result of that connection, we will use that data in line with our Privacy Notice and Policy and these terms.
  1. Payments to Thriday: Some third-party providers may pay Thriday a fee that may be related to referrals from Thriday; revenue made by the provider; or data that the providers access about you through our services with your consent.  

Maintenance, downtime and data loss

On the odd occasion, sometimes downtime is required on one of our services to keep our services updated and secure. You also may have occasional access issues and may experience data loss, so backing up your data is important.

  1. Availability: We strive to maintain the availability of our services, and provide online support, 24 hours a day. On occasion, we need to perform maintenance on our services, and this may require a period of downtime. We try to minimise any such downtime. Where planned maintenance is being undertaken, we’ll attempt to notify you in advance but can’t guarantee it.
  1. Access issues: Occasionally you might not be able to access our services and your data due to a bad internet connection at your end. This might happen for any number of reasons, at any time.  
  1. Data loss: Data loss is an unavoidable risk when using any technology. You’re responsible for maintaining copies of your data entered into our services.  
  1. No compensation: Whatever the cause of any downtime, access issues or data loss, your only recourse is to discontinue using our services and closing your transaction account.
  1. Problems and support: If you have a problem, we have excellent support articles available through Thriday that should help you with most situations. If you still need help, you can contact our support team by scrolling to the bottom of any support article in Thriday.
  1. Modifications: We frequently release new updates, modifications and enhancements to our services, and in some cases discontinue features. Where this occurs, we’ll endeavour to notify you where practical (for example, by email, on our blog, or within our services when you log in).

We retain data in case you need it as part of your record retention obligations, but you can get in touch with us to have your data removed completely if you wish.

Liability and indemnity

This section set out the liability terms between us and you.

  1. You indemnify us: You indemnify us against all losses, costs (including legal costs), expenses, demands or liability that we incur arising out of, or in connection with, a third-party claim against us relating to your use of our services or any third-party product (except as far as we’re at fault).

Subject to the exclusion in section 52, we disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including any implied warranties of non-infringement, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.
  1. Limitation of liability: Other than liability that we can’t exclude or limit by law, our liability to you in connection with our services or these terms, in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, is limited as follows:
  • We have no liability arising from your use of our services for any loss of revenue or profit, loss of goodwill, loss of customers, loss of capital, loss of anticipated savings, legal, tax or accounting compliance issues, damage to reputation, loss in connection with any other contract, or indirect, consequential, incidental, punitive, exemplary or special loss, damage or expense.

Disputes

This section outlines how disputes may be resolved for services other than financial services.  For financial services, please refer to www.thriday.com.au/legal-and-privacy.  

  1. Dispute resolution: Most of your concerns can be resolved quickly and to everyone’s satisfaction by contacting our support team by scrolling to the bottom of any support article. If we’re unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction (or if we haven’t been able to resolve a dispute we have with you after attempting to do so informally), you and we agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. You and we agree that any dispute must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.

Miscellaneous, but important matters

Here we set out some additional terms.  

  1. No professional advice: Thriday is not a professional services firm of any sort, and isn’t in the business of giving any kind of professional advice. We may provide you with information we think might be useful in running a small business, but this should not be seen as a substitute for professional advice and we aren’t liable for your use of the information in that way.  Where advice may be given by a third party, we make that clear at the time of the advice and confirm your engagement with the third party to be provided the advice.  Thriday is not a registered tax agent and does not provide any personal accounting advice.  If you need specific advice, you must seek the services of a professional in the field.  
  1. Events outside our control: We aren’t liable to you for any failure or delay in performance of any of our obligations under these terms arising out of any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control.
  1. Notices: Any notice you send to Thriday must be sent to wecare@thriday.com.au. Any notices we send to you will be sent to the email address you’ve provided us through your subscription.
  1. Exclusion: In some places, there may be non-excludable warranties, guarantees or other rights provided by law (non-excludable guarantees). They still apply – these terms do not exclude, restrict or modify them. Except for non-excludable guarantees and other rights you have that we cannot exclude, we’re bound only by the express promises made in these terms. Our liability for breach of a non-excludable guarantee is limited, at our option, to either replacing or paying the cost of replacing the relevant service (unless the non-excludable guarantee says otherwise).
  1. Excluded terms: The terms of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) do not apply to these terms.
  1. Blocking your access, disabling your subscription, or refusing to process a payment:  We or our partners may block your access, terminate your subscription, or refuse to process a payment, or provide a service if we or our partners reasonably believe there’s a risk - like a potential breach of a law or regulation - associated with you, your company, your subscription, or a payment.  Examples  include transactions where the payment is from a sanctioned person or country; or where we or partners reasonably believe there is a legal or regulatory risk or a risk of loss being suffered by us or our customers or partners. You promise that you’re not located in a sanctioned country and are not on a sanctioned persons list.
  1. Limited to businesses operating in Australia: Thriday is only available to subscribers that operate in Australia and have an Australian Business Number.
  1. Relationship between the parties; assignment: Nothing in these terms is to be construed as constituting a partnership, joint venture, employment or agency relationship between you and us, or between you and any other subscriber.  You’re solely responsible for resolving disputes between you and any other subscriber.
  1. Changes to these terms: We sometimes will decide to change these Subscription Terms. Changes won’t apply retrospectively and, if we make changes, we’ll make every effort to let you know. You can keep track of changes to our terms by referring to the version and the date last updated at the top of the terms. Generally, we endeavour to provide you with 30 days’ notice of material changes before they become effective, unless we need to make immediate changes for reasons we don’t have control over. When we notify you, we’ll do it by email or by posting a visible notice through our services. If a change isn’t material, we may not notify you. If you find a modified term unacceptable, you may terminate your subscription by giving the standard advance notice to Thriday.
  1. Enforcement of terms: If there’s any part of these terms that either one of us is unable to enforce, we’ll ignore that part but everything else will remain enforceable.
  1. Interpretation: Words like ‘include’ and ‘including’ are not words of limitation and where anything is within our discretion we mean our sole discretion.
  1. Law: the applicable laws to these Subscription Terms are the laws of the State of Victoria, Australia.
