Personal information about visitors to our site is collected only when knowingly and voluntarily submitted. For example, we may need to collect such information to provide you with further services or to answer or forward any requests or enquiries. It is our intention that this policy will protect your personal information from being dealt with in any way that is inconsistent with applicable privacy laws in Australia.
When you browse a biNu web site, we collect the following type of information:
When you use biNu's mobile application, biNu keeps collects activity information as follows:
When you install biNu's mobile application on Android you may see a warning similar to the following: "Services that cost you money - directly call phone numbers, send SMS messages". Please note that this is a generic Google Play warning related to the features that our app can use to provide some useful functions to our users. In this particular case, our app can display phone numbers as a link so that if the user clicks the link, it directly calls the number from the phone. Any links to the phone's calling functions are initiated via user input and in no circumstances can calls be initated without the user's knowledge. The SMS feature is used to send the user's PIN reminder directly from the phone. Again, this feature can only be accessed via a user intiated click of a link within biNu, where it is clearly explained. We will never send SMS directly from the phone without the user's knowledge or consent.
biNu uses information for the following general purposes:
Apart from where you have consented or disclosure is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was submitted, personal information may be disclosed in special situations where we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring, or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with our rights or property, users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. Also, we may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure.
We may engage third parties to provide you with goods or services on our behalf. In that circumstance, we may disclose your personal information to those third parties in order to meet your request for goods or services.
biNu does not sell, rent or share your personal information with other companies or individuals or non-affiliated companies except following limited circumstances:
biNu might share certain limited information that does not identify you individually with third parties such as "men between the age of 18 and 65" for targeted advertisements or aggregated data, such as "number of users who used a particular application" for market research.Security
