Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy applies to personal information that is collected by or on behalf of Red Button Technologies Pty Ltd ACN 120 049 756 (collectively ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’) in relation to the provision of the Red Button™ service (‘the Service’).

We are committed to meeting the standards set out in the Privacy Act 1988 (Commonwealth) and the National Privacy Principles which together govern the collection, maintenance, use and disclosure of certain personal information.

Information Collected By Us

We collect true, accurate and current contact information of the ACCOUNT HOLDER, the CALLER (the person who will be using the Red Button™ system to contact their Friendlies (CALL GROUP)) and the Friendlies (CALL GROUP) (the group of people to be called when the CALLER initiates a call to the Red Button system) (‘the Registration Data’) to enable the Service to operate effectively. We also collect and use personal information about the ACCOUNT HOLDER for related purposes including future billing and account management.

The Registration Data includes the following personal information of the ACCOUNT HOLDER, CALLER and each of the Friendlies (CALL GROUP):

full name;

mobile number;

landline number; and

email address;

We will confirm that we have the express consent to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information of an ACCOUNT HOLDER, CALLER and each of the Friendlies (CALL GROUP) as outlined in the Terms and Conditions.

In relation to the subscribing ACCOUNT HOLDER (you), the Registration Data may also include the following:

login ID;

password; and

any information required by us in relation to the nominated payment option and the provision of payment services, such as a credit card number and expiry date. Note: Credit Card information is only known to and retained by our payment gateway provider eWay – and Red Button Technologies Pty Ltd has no access to this information.


We collect the Registration Data from you at the time of online registration for the Service and at the time of nominating a payment option and making payments, whether through our website or by any other means.


The effective provision of the Service may require us to disclose that part of the Registration Data that pertains to the CALLER to third party service providers, including emergency service providers.

We do not use or disclose the Registration Data for any purpose other than this primary purpose of collection unless a secondary purpose is directly related to the primary purpose or we have obtained the prior consent of the ACCOUNT HOLDER, CALLER or CALL GROUP members concerned.

We may disclose the Registration Data to commercial partners (including related companies, our agents, dealers, contractors and suppliers) in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We may also provide the Registration Data to third parties engaged by us to provide functions on our behalf such as processing credit card information, processing financial information and transactions, including payments from the subscribing ACCOUNT HOLDER, mailouts, debt collection, marketing research and advertising.

We may also disclose the Registration Data to unrelated third parties (for example, our professional advisers and government authorities or agencies) where that disclosure is reasonably required to obtain advice, prepare legal proceedings, investigate suspected improper conduct or wrongdoing, to assist a lawful authority in the discharge of its duties and/or by law.


We take reasonable precautions to ensure that the Registration Data is protected from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that data transmitted over the internet is totally secure.

We impose strict requirements of security and confidentiality on all third parties as to how they handle the Registration Data. Notwithstanding this, we cannot be held responsible for any misuse or unauthorised disclosure of your personal information by these third parties.

We take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify the Registration Data once we no longer require it.

Use of Information

The Registration Data will be used for the following purposes:

to verify the identity of Users and Friendlies (CALL GROUP);

to assist Friendlies (CALL GROUP) to subscribe to the Service;

to administer and manage the Service, including the calculation and collection of fees; and

to provide information and assistance to Friendlies (CALL GROUP) and Users on how to maximise the benefits of the Service

Access to the Registration Data

Each ACCOUNT HOLDER and CALL GROUP member has the right to access most of the Registration Data that pertains to each of them (subject to lawful exceptions). For security purposes, we may require the provision of sufficient information to establish the identity of the person requesting access, and we may require that the request be made in writing. If we deny access in some circumstances we will tell you why.

To request access, please contact our Privacy Officer as set out at the foot of this document.


If an individual ACCOUNT HOLDER or CALL GROUP member has any questions whatsoever on our handling of the Registration Data or the kind of personal information we hold about the individual, that individual may contact us using the details set out below and we will endeavour to assist with the request.


Due to the nature and purpose of the Service, it is not practicable to provide the ACCOUNT HOLDER or Friendlies (CALL GROUP) with an option to deal with us on an anonymous basis. We cannot provide the Service without the Registration Data.


We take reasonable steps to ensure that the Registration Data we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete and up to date. Each ACCOUNT HOLDER and CALL GROUP member (including you) have the right to request that we correct errors in the Registration Data, or to advise us if changes are required.
