Privacy Policy

We respect your privacy

Echo Ed respects your right to privacy and is committed to safeguarding the privacy of our customers and website visitors.  As we are an Australian based business, you acknowledge that our primary obligation is to adhere to the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) established by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).  We will also ensure that we comply with other privacy policies, laws or regulations where we are legally obliged to do so. This policy sets out how we collect and treat your personal information.

In this policy, Echo Ed means Echo Ed Pty Ltd ACN 153 423 039 as trustee for the Ramm Family Trust, trading as Echo Ed.


This Privacy Policy also applies to people in the European Union (EU), as required under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

  • The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to generally inform people of:
  • how and when we collect personal information;
  • how we use and disclose personal information;
  • how we keep personal information secure, accurate and up-to-date;
  • how an individual can access and correct their personal information; and
  • how we will facilitate or resolve a privacy complaint.
  • If you have any concerns or complaints about the manner in which your personal information has been collected, used or disclosed by us, we have put in place an effective mechanism and procedure for you to contact us so that we can attempt to resolve the issue or complaint. Please see below for further details.
  • Collection of personal information
  • What is personal information?
  • ‘Personal information’ means information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable. Echo Ed’s Privacy Policy applies to personal information collected and/or held by Echo Ed.
  • The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) defines “personal information” to mean any information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable:
  • whether the information or opinion is true or not; and
  • whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.

We collect personal information about you in order to provide our products, services, and customer support.  Our products, services, and customer support are provided through numerous platforms including but not limited to: websites, mobile applications, email, and telephone.  The specific platform and product, service, or support you interact with may affect the personal data we collect.

Not all information requested, collected, and processed by us is “Personal Information” as it does not identify you as a specific natural person.  This will include majority of “User Generated Content” that you provide us with the intention of sharing with other users.  Such “Non-Personal Information” is not covered by this Privacy Policy.  However, as non-personal information may be used in aggregate or be linked with existing personal information; when in this form it will be treated as personal information.  As such, this Privacy Policy will list both types of information for the sake of transparency.

In some situations you may provide us with personal information inadvertently or without us asking for it.  We will take reasonable steps to protect this data.  However, if you have bypassed our systems, processes, and control, the information provided may not be governed by this Privacy Policy.

In some situations you may provide us with personal information over platforms that are outside our control; for example through social media or messaging services.  Whilst any information collected by us is governed by this Privacy Policy, the platform by which it was communicated will be governed by its own Privacy Policy.

  • We will only use or disclose your personal information for the primary purposes for which it was collected. Where reasonably implied (in accordance with the APP), or as consented to by you.
  • At or around the time we collect personal information from you, we will endeavour to provide you with a notice which details how we will use and disclose that specific information.

Provision of informed consent

However, we will take steps to ensure that your information is used by third parties securely and in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

The Privacy Act 1988 requires us to take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that any recipients of your personal information outside of Australia do not breach the privacy principles contained within the Privacy Act 1988.  By providing your consent, under the Privacy Act 1988, we are not required to take such steps as may be reasonable in the circumstances.  However, despite this, we acknowledge the importance of protecting personal information and have taken reasonable steps to ensure that your information is used by third parties securely and in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

  • If you do not consent

If you do not agree to the disclosure of your personal information outside Australia by us, you should tell us that you do not consent.  To do this, either elect not to submit the personal information to us or contact us via the details set out in this document.

You have the right to request access to the personal information Echo Ed holds about you.  Unless an exception applies, we must allow you to see the personal information we hold about you, within a reasonable time period, and without unreasonable expense for no charge.  Most personal information can be accessed by logging into your account.  If you wish to access information that is not accessible through our website, or wish to download all personal information we hold on you in a portable data format, please contact our Privacy Officer.

  • Exercising your other rights

You have a number of other rights in relation to the personal data Echo Ed holds about you, however, there may be restrictions on how you may exercise the rights.  This is largely due to the nature of the products and services we provide.  Much of the data we collect is in order to facilitate product/service enquiries, facilitate payments, and provide protection for the legitimate users of our Services – these data uses are protected against the below rights.

You have the right to:

  • opt-out of direct marketing, and profiling for marketing
  • erasure
  • temporary restriction of processing.
  • Direct marketing and profiling

You can control what emails you receive through your settings page.

  • Anonymity and pseudo-anonymity
  • We will endeavour to provide you with the option of dealing with us on an anonymous basis or through the use of a pseudonym.

  • Erasure
  • Most personal information and user generated content cannot be deleted as they are used to support contracts, document financial transactions, and are used in providing protecting other legitimate users of the marketplace. In the case of non-personal data that can be linked with personal data, it will either be erased or otherwise anonymised from the personal data.
  • Notwithstanding the above, we will take reasonable steps to:
    • make sure that the personal information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete and up to date;
    • protect your personal information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure both physically and through computer security methods; and

    • take all reasonable steps to recover or otherwise secure your personal information;
    • limit access to your personal information;
    • minimise the risk of harm; and

In either case you may exercise this right by contacting our Privacy Officer.
  • Unless stated above, users may exercise any of the above rights by contacting our Privacy Officer.
  • To contact our Privacy Officer

  • Consent, modifications and updates
  • Interaction of this Policy with contracts
  • This Privacy Policy is a compliance document prescribed by law rather than a legal contract between two or more persons. However, we will ask for your consent, consistent with the terms of this policy and certain contracts may incorporate all, or part, of this Privacy Policy into the terms of that contract. In such instances, We may incorporate the terms of this policy such that:
    • certain sections or paragraphs in this policy are incorporated into that contract, but in such a way that they do not give rise to contractual obligations onto Us, but do create contractual obligations on the other party to the contract; and
    • the consents provided in this policy become terms of the contract.
  • Acknowledgement
  • By using our website, or in otherwise obtaining a service from Us, where you have been provided with a copy of our Privacy Policy or had a copy of our Privacy Policy reasonably available to you, you acknowledge and agree:
    • to provide the consents given by you in this Privacy Policy; and
    • that you have been informed of all of the matters in this Privacy Policy.
  • Modification and Updates
  • We operate in a dynamic business environment. We reserve the right to modify our Privacy Policy as our business needs require.

  • Credit Reporting Policy
  • We may also be bound by the credit reporting provisions of the Privacy Act and the Credit Reporting Code registered under the Privacy Act. For instance, where we provide services to you on credit (that is, you will pay for those services after we start providing them to you), we are a credit provider for the purposes of the Privacy Act.
  • This Credit Reporting Policy describes how we manage credit-related information about individuals (credit information). It does not apply to the collection or use of credit related information about corporations.
  • We will ensure that all personal information (including credit information) which we handle is managed in accordance with the Privacy Act and other applicable laws protecting privacy.
  • Collection of credit information
  • We may collect, hold and use certain credit related information about you. We will generally only obtain this information from you. We will not routinely collect or exchange information with credit reporting bodies and other credit providers unless you authorise us to do so.  We use credit related information to assist us in determining whether we will provide or continue to provide services to you on credit and to manage our relationship with you.  Credit related information includes your name and contact details, your credit history (including any repayments or late repayments you have made), any credit rating or credit assessment score that we calculate; and details of any credit related court proceedings or insolvency applications that relate to you.
  • We will securely store all credit related information that we collect or hold about you.
  • Disclosure of credit information
  • Unless otherwise required by law, we will only disclose your credit related information to third parties in limited circumstances as permitted by the Privacy Act. We may disclose your credit related information to parties that provide credit related services to us such as debt collectors, credit management agencies and our agents. We may also disclose your credit related information to a third party that you or we request act as a guarantor in relation to any credit provided to you.  We may also disclose credit information to credit reporting bodies where there has been a default in payment.  We will provide at least 14 days’ notice of our intention to disclose default information to a credit reporting body before making any such disclosure.  We will not disclose any credit information to any recipient located outside of Australia.
  • Other circumstances where we may disclose your credit related information include where required by law or the order of a court or tribunal and where you otherwise expressly consent to the use or disclosure.
  • Access & Corrections
  • Consistent with our Privacy Policy, you may request access to any credit related information that we hold about you.
  • If you request that we correct any credit related information that we hold about you, we will endeavour to respond to that request within 21 days (or such longer period as you may agree) and correct any credit related information that we hold about you that we are satisfied is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading.
  • Complaints
  • You may complain about any failure by us to comply with Part IIIA of the Privacy Act or the Credit Reporting Code. If your complaint relates to our failure to provide access to or to correct any credit related information that we hold about you, you may lodge a complaint directly with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (for more information, please see oaic.gov.au). If your complaint does not relate to these matters, you must first lodge a complaint with us in accordance with the procedure set out in our Privacy Policy, which sets out how we will deal with such complaints.
