webcastcloud Pty Ltd and its related companies and affiliates (together “webcastcloud” or “we”, “us”, “our” or other similar expressions) are committed to protecting your personal privacy.  This Privacy Policy tells you how we collect, store, use and disclose the personal information of our customers (“Customers” or “you”) relating to your use of our services and to end users who view your videos via our services (“Viewers”).  Information is your ‘personal information’ if it is about you as an identified or identifiable individual.  We encourage you to read this webcastcloud Services Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) carefully so that you understand how we deal with that information.

We are bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).  We have adopted internal policies and procedures to ensure that personal information that we collect, store, use and disclose is dealt with in accordance with the APPs.  You can see the full text of the APPs online at:

Please note that the Act contains certain exemptions which may permit us to use your personal information in a particular way if specific circumstances arise. Any such exemptions under the Act will take priority over this privacy policy to the extent of any inconsistency.

This Privacy Policy describes the information collected by webcastcloud’s products and services, including webcastcloud’s Video Channel, webcastcloud Video OnDemand, webcastcloud Live, webcastcloud Events, webcastcloud Webinars, Video Hosting and Event Services and Mediasite (the “Services”). Any use of webcastcloud Services is covered by this Privacy Policy.

Those aspects of the webcastcloud website that do not form a part of the webcastcloud Services are covered by the Website Privacy Policy.

Webcastcloud have a relationship with the webcastcloud Customers and not our Customers’ Customers (the Video Viewers). Information we collect from video viewers on a webcastcloud customer’s video website is subject to our customers’ privacy policies. Video Viewers who have questions or concerns about information collected via webcastcloud Services when they watch a video or register on a customer’s video website, should contact our Customer who is providing the video content directly.

By accessing a webcastcloud website for webcastcloud Services, we assume you accept the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. Do not continue to use webcastcloud website for webcastcloud Services if you do not agree to take all of the terms and conditions stated in this document.

Information we collect

In order to provide our Customers and their Viewers with our products and services, we may collect and use personal information about them.  If we are not provided with all the personal information we request, we may not be able to supply our products and services to you, and you or your organisation may not be able to participate in future offers of goods or services which we supply. 

The type of information we collect is detailed below.

We may collect or store ‘sensitive information’, as defined in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (eg information about ethnic origin, religious beliefs or health).  However, where we are required to and able to do so, we will ask for your consent before collecting your sensitive information and let you know the purpose at the same time.

How we collect personal information

Generally, we collect your personal information from you, whether in person, by telephone, online or in writing.  If you submit an order for a Service or complete our Registration Page, we will collect information therefrom. 

However, we may also collect personal information about you from someone other than you (for example from other organisations with which you have had dealings with).

How we store personal information

We take all reasonable steps to keep secure any personal information which we hold about you and to protect your personal information from loss, misuse or unauthorised alteration. Any personal information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. We also maintain physical security procedures to manage and protect the use and storage of records containing personal information.

Our employees are obliged and trained to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us.

We are not responsible or liable for the security of data sent via the internet.


We usually disclose the personal information we collect to our related entities, service providers and contractors that help us supply our products and services.  For example, we may disclose the personal information we collect to our information technology providers, providers of marketing and promotional services, professional advisers such as legal practitioners and accountants, debt collectors and insurers.

Except as indicated above, we will not disclose your personal information to a third party unless:

  • you have consented to the disclosure;
  • the third party is our service provider or contractor, in which case we will require them to use and disclose the personal information only for the purpose for which it was provided to them;
  • the third party is a person involved in a dealing or proposed dealing (including a sale) of all or part of our assets and business;
  • the disclosure is to a related entity; or
  • the disclosure is permitted, required or authorised by or under law.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies.

To ensure we are meeting the needs and wants of our website users, and to develop our online services, we may collect aggregated information by using cookies or similar electronic tools.

Cookies are unique identification numbers like tags that are placed on the browser of our website users.  These cookies are used to retain login and location information in order to make your experiences more convenient and personal.  We do not use cookies to track your internet activity before or after you leave any of our website.  No other business or organisation has access to our cookies.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

We do not use this technology to access your personal information in our records and you cannot be personally identified from a cookie.

HTTP Headers.  HTTP headers are information that is transmitted whenever a webpage is viewed, and contain technical information required for communication between a browsing device and a website server. Other electronic communication protocols (such as those used for email) also use headers to transmit information. Information may be transmitted through HTTP (or other electronic communication protocol) headers to webcastcloud from the Customer’s use of webcastcloud Services or from Viewer interaction with a Customer’s video. This may include information about the device browser, the requested webpage and the computer or device being used (such as a carrier or device identifier).

Log Files. As is true of most online services, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include Viewer IP address, browser type, device type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and/or clickstream data. An IP address is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a Customer uses webcastcloud Services or a Viewer watches a video, along with the time(s) of the visit(s) and the page(s) visited. We may combine this automatically-collected log information with other information we collect. We do this to provide analytics data to our Customers, to improve the functionality of webcastcloud Services and for the other purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Analytics. We may use third-party analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to track the use of webcastcloud Services by our Customers. For information on how Google collects and processes information and how to opt out from Google’s collection of your information, please click here.

When a webcastcloud customer has requested for data to retain within a specific region, those services are met on a customer contractual basis.
