How and when do we collect personal information?

ABN Group collects information about prospective clients and clients online, in-person and through telephone enquiries. ABN Group is the sole owner of the information and will use this data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as permitted or required by law. ABN Group will not sell or rent this information to unaffiliated third parties.

We may also collect your personal information in the course of providing you with goods or services, or:

  • When you make an enquiry about or buy our products or services;
  • When you provide us, or you offer or apply to supply us, with goods or services;

Where we engage with you multiple times over a short period in relation to the same matter, we may not provide you with a separate notice about privacy each time we engage with you.

In most cases, if you choose not to provide your personal information to us for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, or if we do not or are unable to collect the personal information we require, we may not be able to provide you with requested information, products or services, or to effectively conduct our relationship with you.

Cookies, pixel tags and email tracking

ABN Group uses pixel tags and other methods to gather information about the emails it sends to registered Website visitors and recipients of emails sent by ABN Group’s Website visitors to others. Pixel tags are tiny graphic files that are included in HTML-encoded email messages. When such a message is opened in an HTML-capable email program, the recipient’s computer will access the ABN Group’s servers to retrieve the pixel tag file, allowing ABN Group to record and store information such as an email address, date and time the recipient viewed the email message if the recipient’s email program is capable of receiving HTML and other logging information. ABN Group uses this information to optimise delivery of future messages to specific recipients and to provide information to registered users with respect to emails they send through the ABN Group system.

ABN Group maintains log files tracking IP addresses to analyse trends, help diagnose problems with our servers, and to monitor traffic/usage in order to provide better service to its clients and Website visitors.

ABN Group uses cookies to deliver content specific to Website visitors’ interests and to improve the convenience and efficiency of its clients’ experience when using its products and services.

Some of our business partners, such as our Web analytics provider, also use cookies on our Website. These cookies are used to track visitor behaviour, and ABN Group has no access to or control over these cookies. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by ABN Group only and does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties.


Remarketing / Advertising networks

We use third party vendors to advertise online and third party affiliations to run advertising on websites and online platforms. Third party vendors, including Google, show our ads on sites across the Internet by using cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our websites.

This enables us and network advertisers to target advertisements to you for products and services in which you might be interested.  Ad network providers, advertisers, sponsors, and/or traffic measurement services may use pixels, cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (including clear GIFs), Flash LSOs, and other tracking technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content to you.  These pixels, cookies and other technologies are governed by each entity’s specific privacy policy, not this Privacy Policy. We may provide these advertisers with information, including personal information, about you.

Where permitted by applicable law, we can use third party vendor remarketing services, including Google’s ‘Customer Match’ and Meta’s ‘Custom Audience’ to display ads. This means if you have provided us with your contact details, we may upload these to third party vendors who perform remarketing services on our behalf, so that we can better target ads and content to you and others with similar interests on other websites or media (Custom Audiences).  We may also work with other ad networks and marketing platforms that enable us and other participants to target ads to Custom Audiences submitted by us and others.  You may also control how Google, Meta and other ad networks display certain ads to you, as explained further in their respective privacy policies or by using the opt-outs described below.

You can opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting Google’s Ads Settings. If you want to permanently opt out of Google’s DoubleClick cookie, you can install the DoubleClick opt out extension. To opt-out of Meta Custom Audiences, go to the Facebook ad preferences page.

You may be able to opt out of many other ad networks.  For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by DAA companies.  You also have the option to opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt out page, for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and your choices regarding having information used by NAI members.

Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page opt you out from those companies’ delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our Website or on other websites.  You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e. contextually based ads).  Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt out on a consumer choice website, your opt out may not be effective.

If a prospective client or client no longer wishes to receive contact from their Consultant they can advise us of this using the contact details at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. You may opt out of receiving future direct marketing communications at any time (see the opt-out section below).

The contact details of clients who have built/purchased with an ABN Group company will be included on ABN Group database.

If you are included on multiple ABN Group Companies’ databases, you will need to specify that you wants to opt-out of all ABN Group Company databases (otherwise you will only be opted-out of one company’s database but not the others).

When an opt-out request is made your details are marked in our database with an unsubscribe ‘flag’ so that you do not receive further direct marketing from us. If we know your postal address it will be added to a suppression list to be excluded from any future posted direct marketing.

Opt out requests exclude any non-marketing communications that we deliver (by email, post, phone or other means) that are related to a contract that you have signed with us (e.g. building updates).

Data storage and retention

Information collected by ABN Group is stored in Australian & overseas data centres (Private & Public Cloud). ABN Group ensures any overseas vendors involved in the collection and storage of private data are compliant with this outlined Privacy Policy and the GDPR.

We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. When personal information is no longer needed for any purpose for which the information may be held, used or disclosed, it will be destroyed or permanently de-identified.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for analytics, research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this anonymised information indefinitely without further notice to you.
