You can always choose not to provide your personal information to Stepsie, but it may mean that we are unable to provide you with the Service.

Stepsie collects, holds, and uses your personal information for limited purposes.

Stepsie collects your personal information so that we can provide you with the Service and any related services you may request. In doing so, Stepsie may use the personal information we have collected from you for purposes related to the Services including to:

By using the Service, you consent to your personal information being collected, held and used in this way and for any other use you authorise. Stepsie will only use your personal information for the purposes described in this Policy or only with your express permission in any other event.

It is your responsibility to keep your password to the Service safe. You should notify us as soon as possible if you become aware of any misuse of your password, and immediately change your password within the Service or via the Forgot your password process.

Stepsie can aggregate your non-personally identifiable data

By using the Service, you agree that Stepsie can access, aggregate and use non-personally identifiable data Stepsie has collected from you. This data will in no way identify you or any other individual.

Stepsie may use this aggregated non-personally identifiable data to:

  • assist us to better understand how our customers are using the Service,

  • provide our customers with further information regarding the uses and benefits of the Service, and

Stepsie holds your personal information on servers located in the U.S.

All Data, including personal and non-personal information, that is entered into the Service by you, or automatically imported on your instruction, is transferred to Stepsie’s servers as a function of transmission across the Internet. By using the Service, you consent to your personal information being transferred to our servers as set out in this Policy.

Currently our servers are located in the United States of America (U.S.), primarily by Amazon.com Inc. (Amazon), and your personal information will be routed through, and stored on, those servers as part of the Service. Amazon complies with relevant aspects of the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and has certified that it adheres to relevant Safe Harbor Privacy Principles. If the location of our servers change in the future, we will update this Policy. You should review our Policy regularly to keep informed of any updates.

By providing your personal information to Stepsie, you consent to Stepsie storing your personal information on servers hosted in the U.S. While your personal information will be stored on servers located in the U.S., it will remain within Stepsie’s effective control at all times. The server host’s role is limited to providing a hosting and storage service to Stepsie, and we’ve taken steps to ensure that our server hosts do not have access to, and use the necessary level of protection for, your personal information.

If you do not want your personal information to be transferred to a server located in the U.S., you should not provide Stepsie with your personal information or use the Service.

Stepsie takes steps to protect your personal information

Stepsie is committed to protecting the security of your personal information and we take all reasonable precautions to protect it from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Your personal information is stored on secure servers that have SSL Certificates issued by leading certificate authority Comodo, and all Data transferred between you and the Service is encrypted.

However, the Internet is not in itself a totally secure environment and we cannot give an absolute assurance that your information will be 100% secure at all times. Transmission of personal information over the Internet is at your own risk and you should only enter, or instruct the entering of, personal information to the Service within a secure environment.

We will advise you at the first reasonable opportunity upon discovering or being advised of a security breach where your personal information is lost, stolen, accessed, used, disclosed, copied, modified, or disposed of by any unauthorised persons or in any unauthorised manner.

Stepsie only discloses your Personal Information in limited circumstances

Stepsie will only disclose the personal information you have provided to us to entities outside the Stepsie group of companies if it is necessary and appropriate to facilitate the purpose for which your personal information was collected pursuant to this Policy, including the provision of the Service.

Stepsie will not otherwise disclose your personal information to a third party unless you have provided your express consent. However, you should be aware that Stepsie may be required to disclose your personal information without your consent in order to comply with any court orders, subpoenas, or other legal process or investigation, if such disclosure is required by law. Where possible and appropriate, we will notify you if we are required by law to disclose your personal information.

The third parties who host our servers do not control, and are not permitted to access or use your personal information except for the limited purpose of storing the information. This means that, for the purposes of Australian privacy legislation and Australian users of the Service, Stepsie does not currently “disclose” personal information to third parties located overseas.

Stepsie does not store your credit card details

If you choose to pay for the Service by credit card, your credit card details are not stored by the Service and cannot be accessed by Stepsie staff. Your credit card details are encrypted and securely stored by Braintree Payment Solutions, LLC (Braintree) to enable Stepsie to automatically bill your credit card on a recurring basis. You should review Braintree’s Security Details to ensure you are happy with them.

You may request access to your personal information

It is your responsibility to ensure that the personal information you provide to us is accurate, complete and up-to-date. You may request access to the information we hold about you, or request that we update or correct any personal information we hold about you, by setting out your request in writing and sending it to us at support@stepsie.com.

Stepsie will process your request as soon as reasonably practicable, provided we are not otherwise prevented from doing so on legal grounds. If we are unable to meet your request, we will let you know why. For example, it may be necessary for us to deny your request if it would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy or affairs of other individuals, or if it is not reasonable and practicable for us to process your request in the manner you have requested.

We’ll only keep your personal information for as long as we require it for the purposes of providing you with the Service. However, we may also be required to keep some of your personal information for specified periods of time, for example under certain laws relating to corporations.

You can opt-out of any email communications

Stepsie sends billing information, product information, Service updates and Service notifications to you via email. Our emails will contain clear and obvious instructions on how to unsubscribe. Stepsie will remove you at your request.
