Goolara respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information you share with us. Goolara produces the software Symphonie for email marketing. Your interaction with Goolara could fall into one of three categories, for which different privacy rules apply:
1 - You could be a visitor to our website, interested in our Symphonie product.
2 - You could be a customer of ours, having paid us for the use of Symphonie.
3 - You could be a recipient of an email sent by Symphonie, either from Goolara’s network or from a customer who uses Symphonie in their network.
1 - Privacy for visitors
Goolara does not collect any information for visitors to our web site unless the visitor explicitly requests to be contacted, either through the contact form, by requesting a demonstration of the software, by requesting a white paper, guide, or other publication from us, or by asking to sign up for our newsletter. In each of these cases the information we collect is your name, your company name, and some way to contact you, either a phone number or email address. Goolara may use this information to contact you and solicit your business, or to respond to your request for information.
Goolara offers a blog of news, and if you add comments to the blog these may be shared publicly.
2 - Privacy for customers
If you are a customer of Goolara’s, having paid us for the use of our Symphonie product, then we have a contract in place with you that has explicit rules about how you can use our software to reach out to email recipients and states that you must follow all laws regarding unsubscribes, handling complaints, and follow CAN-SPAM and other laws.
3 - Privacy for email recipients
Goolara provides the Symphonie software for email marketing, and in the case of our hosted offering, provides the infrastructure (computers and networking) so customers can use the software. If a customer is using the hosted version of Symphonie, any data they upload into the system is stored in a database under Goolara’s control, and that data could be seen by Goolara employees. Goolara has tight restrictions limiting employee’s ability to access this data and works to ensure that the data is only viewed when required to support the customer.
Goolara does not control what data is stored in the Symphonie system, nor does Goolara have any control over how the customer collects or uses this data. Goolara simply provides the software to enable customers to utilize email marketing services.
When you are sent an email message, or when you interact with that message, Symphonie may automatically collect some data including information about your IP address and information provided by your browser.
By the contract we have with each customer using Symphonie each email message sent by the system must have a method to unsubscribe, as per US and other laws.
You also have the right to be “forgotten” and have your personal data erased. To request to be forgotten, please contact the company using Symphonie that is sending you email. If you are unable to get resolution from that company, you may contact Goolara using the email@example.com email address, and we will try to help you.
Goolara will never use the personal data stored in Symphonie for any purpose other than to support the customer using the software. Explicitly, Goolara will never provide this data to any other company or anyone unless required by law.
