We also store and manage information on behalf of our customers so they can manage their training and events. This includes information about our customers’ contacts such as name, email, demographics, organisation, registration information, and other details entered by customers into our systems, which are subject to our Terms of Use but are not otherwise limited or controlled by us. It is possible that in this respect we could handle sensitive information such as information about professional association membership, political beliefs, health and religion. We do not use this information for our own purposes.

Cookies and Website Usage Information

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our infrastructure, and to administer our website. We do not link your IP address which accesses our website to any personal information. We use tracking information to determine which areas our site users visit based on traffic to those areas. Arlo does not track what individual users read, but rather how often each page is visited. This helps us maintain a superior and informative website for you.

In providing our service, Arlo utilises “cookies”. Read our Cookie Policy.

Our website may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of those sites.

Security Technology

Arlo has made a substantial investment in server, database, backup and firewall technologies to protect our information assets. These technologies are deployed as part of sophisticated security architecture. All data resides in a tightly controlled, secure data center. These investments mean that information about the identity and preferences of individual members is strongly protected by Arlo against unauthorised access. We will maintain safeguards to protect the security of these servers and your personal information. 

However, the Internet is not in itself a secure environment and we cannot give an absolute assurance that your information will be 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 Arlo 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.

Arlo reserves the right to change this policy at any time, and any amended policy is effective upon posting to this website. Arlo will make every effort to communicate any significant changes to you via email or notification via the service. Your continued use of the service will be deemed acceptance of any amended policy.
