Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a specific individual.

BudgetMyReno (“Provider“) does not collect any personal financial data, such as but not limited to income, credit card etc.

Your data stays on your device and is synced with Google Firestore for backup and enables us to share your project data with members of your project which you have approved.

Here are some examples of personal information that we collect:

  • When you create a BudgetMyReno Account, we ask you for your email address. We also allow you to add you name via Settings.
  • When using BudgetMyReno to update your project, we store data related to your project, and we keep logs of the time and IP address you used to access the service.
  • When you contact BudgetMyReno, e.g. for a support request, we may keep a record of your communication.

We use the personal information we collect to help us develop, deliver, protect, and improve our products, services, content, and customer communications. We also use it to keep you up to date on our latest product announcements and updates, and to send you important notices, e.g. about changes to our Privacy Policy.

We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve our products and services.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

Non-personal information is data that cannot be used to uniquely identify a specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. We may combine personal and non-personal information for certain purposes; this data will then be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined. Conversely, aggregated information, i.e. data that might have originated from personal information, but that has been processed in such a way as to not allow personal identification, is treated as non-personal information.

Here are some examples of non-personal information that we collect – either by ourselves or through the use of third-party services:

  • When you visit our application, we keep logs of your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and language and date/time stamp. Currently, we also use Google Analytics to collect and process this information; please refer to the section “Google Analytics” below.
  • We may also collect the data you enter or upload to the BudgetMyReno applications and use it for the purpose of analysis and statistics.

Google Analytics

Our application uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your device, to help the mobile application analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. By using this application, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Purpose of the processing

The purpose of processing of your Personal Data lies mainly in setting up, functioning of the BudgetMyReno account and ensuring current or future features like e.g. server synchronization or sharing information with other users you approve. However, we may also process your Personal Data in order to improve your experience and further develop the application.

Access to Personal Information

Your personal information is retained for as long as it is necessary in order to provide you our services, to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy or to comply with our legal obligations. After we delete or block access to information from our services or application, it will no longer be accessible to anyone; there may, however, continue to be residual copies of that data on our active servers and backup systems.

Disclosure to 3rd parties

We don’t share personal information with anyone outside of BudgetMyReno, except as required by the applicable laws. However, Personal Data may be processed for Provider by third parties, but only for the purposes specified in this Policy, on a basis of written contract and under statutory conditions.

We share personal information if disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request; to enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof; to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud or security issues; and to protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of BudgetMyReno, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

If BudgetMyReno is involved in a reorganization, merger, or sale, the information we collect may be transferred as part of that transaction.

Sharing your data with other users of BudgetMyReno is completely under your control.

You hereby acknowledge that you are entitled to withdraw your consent to the processing of your Personal Data at any time, you have the right to access, correct or discard your Personal Data or remove them if misleading. Furthermore, you are entitled to contact us via email with any complaint concerning the processing of your Personal Data and, in case of dissatisfaction with the answer, consult the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner

Your consent to the processing of your Personal Data may only be withdrawn by sending us an email. If your consent to Personal Data processing is withdrawn, your BudgetMyReno account will be deleted.

Communication and Offers

You hereby agree that we may use the Personal Data provided by you to send commercial offers and communication with respect to BudgetMyReno, related services or services of business partners associated with BudgetMyReno.

Data security

Your Personal Data is stored and processed automatically in the electronic form on the secure servers with firewall protection and physical security measures.

However, you agree that in the future we may decide to transfer your Personal Data abroad, including outside Australia, and store it and process it with a help of cloud services provided by Google.
