If you have any issues with our Opt-In or Opt-out process, please contact us and we will remedy it immediately.

Other users of the Services: Other users of our Services may provide information about you when they submit content through our Services.  For example, you may be mentioned in a support ticket opened by someone else at your company.  Similarly, someone else at your company may provide your contact information when they designate you as the billing or technical contact on your company’s account.

Other Partners: We receive information about you and your activities on and off the Services from third-party partners, such as advertising and market research partners who provide us with information about your interest in and engagement with, our Services and online advertisements.

How We Use Information We Collect

How we use the information we collect depends in part on which Services you use, how you use them, and any preferences you have communicated to us. Below are the specific purposes for which we use the information we collect about you.

To provide the Services and personalize your experience: We use information about you to provide the Services to you, including to process transactions with you, authenticate you when you log in, provide customer support, and operate and maintain the Services.  For example, we use the username, first name, last name and email you or your company provided to us to create your account to identify you to other Service users. Our Services also include tailored features that personalize your experience, enhance your productivity, and improve your ability to utilize our Services.  For example, we may use your stated job title and activity to return search results we think are relevant to your job function.  We also use information about you to connect you with our company’s team members who can share with you content or their subject matter expertise. We may use your email domain to infer your affiliation with a particular organization or industry to personalize the content and experience you receive on our websites. Where you use multiple Services, we combine information about you and your activities to provide an integrated experience, such as to allow you to find information from one Service while searching from another or to present relevant product information as you travel across our websites.

For research and development:  We are always looking for ways to make our Services smarter, faster, secure, integrated, and useful to you.  We use collective learnings about how people use our Services and feedback provided directly to us to troubleshoot and to identify trends, usage, activity patterns and areas for integration and improvement of the Services. In some cases, we apply these learnings across our Services to improve and develop similar features or to better integrate the services you use. We also test and analyze certain new features with some users before rolling the feature out to all users.

To communicate with you about the Services: We use your contact information to send communications via email and within the Services, including confirming your purchases, reminding you of subscription expirations, responding to your comments, feature requests, support questions and requests, providing customer support, and sending you technical notices, updates, security alerts, and administrative messages.  We send to you email notifications when you or others interact with you on the Services, for example, when you are part of an approval workflow and a user assigns one or more items for you to approve.  We also provide tailored communications based on your activity and interactions with us.  For example, certain actions you take in the Services may automatically trigger a feature or third-party app suggestion within the Services that would make that task easier such as tracking your support request that you have submitted.  We also send you communications as you onboard or need to use a particular Service.  These communications are a required part of the Services and in most cases, you cannot opt out of them.  If an opt-out is available, you will find that option within the communication itself or in your account settings.

To market, promote and drive engagement with the Services: We use your contact information and information about how you use the Services to send promotional communications that may be of specific interest to you, including by email and by displaying our ads on other companies’ websites and applications, as well as on platforms like Facebook and Google.  These communications are aimed at driving engagement and maximizing what you get out of the Services, including information about new features, survey requests, newsletters, and events we think may be of interest to you.  We also communicate with you about new product offers and promotions.  After opting-in to one of our marketing-related communications, you can control whether you receive these communications as described below under “Opt-out of Communications.”

Customer support: We use your information to resolve technical issues you encounter, to respond to your requests for support, to analyze crash information, and to improve the Services.

For safety and security: We use information about you and your Service use to verify your account and activity meets the terms of our service, to monitor suspicious or fraudulent activity and to identify violations of Service policies.

To protect our legitimate business interests and legal rights: Where required by law or where we believe it is necessary to protect our legal rights regarding intellectual property or other matters, the interests and the interests of others. We may use information about you in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory, and audit functions, and disclosures in connection with the acquisition, merger or sale of a business.

With your consent: We use information about you where you have given us consent to do so for a specific purpose not listed above.  For example, we may publish testimonials or featured customer stories to promote the Services, with your permission.

Legal basis for processing (for EEA users):

If you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we collect and process information about you only where we have a legal basis for doing so under applicable EU laws.  The legal basis depends on the Services you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:

  • We need it to provide you the Services, including to operate our Services, provide customer support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of the Services;
  • It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the Services (where you have opted in to receiving marketing information) and to protect our legal rights and interests;
  • You give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
  • We need to process your data to comply with an obligation as agreed once you purchased one of our Services.

If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place.  Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest in doing so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this will most likely mean you no longer will be able to use our Services.

How We Share the Information We Collect

We make optimization tools designed to improve your business.  This means sharing information through the Services and with certain third parties.  We share information we collect about you in the ways discussed below as a means to operate our business and improve the Services we provide to you. We are not in the business of selling information about you to advertisers or other third parties.

In some cases, for example, support requests logged, we may not be able to remove your information as we need to keep a record of how our support is utilized, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to and why.

Sharing with third parties
We may share information with third parties that help us operate, provide, improve, integrate, customize, support and market our Services including GoDaddy for our Website and Amazon Web Services (AWS) for our IQ Platform. If the information they access is sensitive or confidential, we require the third party to be under Non-Disclosure Agreement.

Service Providers: We work with third-party service providers to provide website and application development, hosting, maintenance, backup, storage, virtual infrastructure, payment processing, analysis and other services for us, which may require them to access or use information about you.  If a service provider needs to access information about you to perform services on our behalf, they do so under close instruction from us, including policies and procedures designed to protect your information.

Oniqua Partners: We work with third parties who provide consulting, sales, and technical services to deliver and implement customer solutions around the Services.

Third Party Apps: We may choose to add new functionality or change the behaviour of the Services by installing third-party apps within the Services.  Doing so may give third-party apps access to your account and information about you like your name and email address, and any content you choose to use in connection with those apps. Third-party application policies and procedures are not controlled by us, and this privacy notice does not cover how third-party apps use your information.

Links to Third Party Sites: The Services may include links that direct you to other websites or services whose privacy practices may differ from ours.

Widgets and social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Services. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on the Services if a transaction takes place, as well as any choices you may have regarding your information.

How We Store and Secure Information We Collect

Information storage and security
We use data hosting service providers in the United States via Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host the information we collect, and we use technical measures to secure your data.
While we implement significant safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is 100% impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the computers and networks, we cannot 100% guarantee that data, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others. We employ monitoring software and conduct periodic cyber-security testing to ensure your data is safe.

Oniqua’s approach and commitment to application security on our Services begin in the design phase and continues through to the continuous delivery of applications, versions, and features.  All stages of development, deployment, and maintenance have processes and checks to ensure the security of our application and our customer’s data. Application security is regularly tested and penetration tests are conducted by outside firms.

How long we keep information
Oniqua holds on to Private Data for the period of the contract and then afterwards if so required by law (e.g. tax law), unless there is a request to remove data from our systems or there is a discontinuation in the use of our Service.  After such time, we will either delete or anonymize your information if there is a legal requirement to retain data, or, if this is not possible (for example, because the information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your information and isolate it from any further use until deletion is possible.

Analytics Data: Data transferred from a customer to Oniqua and stored for analytics and enrichment is secured using best practice measures.

Data in transit across the internet can be secured by a number of methods.  Protocols, encryption, and methods are agreed upon by ISMS staff at Oniqua and our customer.  Common and supported transport methods are using SSL encrypted FTP traffic, sharing public keys for encryption/decryption both in transit or file based (e.g. PGP).  Customers can also transfer data via HTTPS signed with an SHA256 certificate.  Oniqua can also provide a secure HTTPS API for data transport.

Account information: We retain your account information for as long as your account is active and a reasonable period thereafter in case you decide to re-activate the Services.  We also retain some of your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce our agreements, to support business operations, and to continue to develop and improve our Services. Where we retain information for Service improvement and development, we take steps to eliminate information that directly identifies you, and we only use the information to uncover collective insights about the use of our Services, not to specifically analyze personal characteristics about you.

The information you share on the Services: If your account is deactivated or disabled, some of your information and the content you have provided will remain in order to allow your team members or other users to make full use of the Services.  For example, we continue to display notes on items so other users can continue to display the content you provided.

How We Physically Secure the Data We Collect: Our IQ Platform Services are hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS), a leader in cloud infrastructure as a service.  AWS data centers and network architecture are built to meet the requirements of the world’s most security-sensitive organizations.  Customer data is stored on AWS encrypted data volumes on a Microsoft SQL server with per database security.  The data volume encryption key is only known to Oniqua operations staff.  This data is backed up for archiving and disaster recovery purposes and kept indefinitely.  All data backups are stored using AES256 bit encryption.  Oniqua have an RPO of 15 minutes for production data. Leveraging the power of the AWS cloud allows Oniqua to scale on demand to meet the big data requirements of any customer.  Further information on AWS data center physical and network security can be found in the AWS Security Whitepaper. AWS SOC compliance reports and information can be found on the AWS SOC Compliance FAQ.

Data Encryption: Oniqua employs data encryption on our laptops company-wide. All shared files, email data, and data at rest is encrypted.

Data Ownership: Unless otherwise agreed, the customer owns their data always.  Oniqua can provide an export of all stored customer data within seven days of a support request being submitted.

Personal Data: The only personal data held by IQ Platform Services is the user’s full name and email address.  This information is required to provide login credentials and support services.  Oniqua does not share this information with any other party or customer except at the request of the user.  This information is only accessible by Oniqua Operations, Support and Customer Success staff.

Logging and Access Data: Access to system and user logs is restricted to Oniqua operations staff.  These logs are backed up using AES256 bit encryption and kept indefinitely.

Our Offices: Our company has offices located in Brisbane Australia and Denver USA.  Access to Oniqua offices is restricted via smart card access logged indefinitely.  Physical premises security procedures exist for both office locations.

Managed accounts: If the Services are made available to you through an organization (e.g., your employer), we retain your information as long as required by the administrator of your account.  For more information, see “Managed accounts and administrators” above.

Marketing information: If you have elected to receive marketing emails from us, we retain information about your marketing preferences for a reasonable period of time from the date you last expressed interest in our Services, such as when you last opened an email from us or ceased using our Services.  We retain information derived from cookies and other tracking technologies for a reasonable period of time from the date such information was created.

Access and Credential Management: Our IQ Platform Services can be accessed via a username and password, known only to the user, or via Single Sign-On (SSO) using SAML. Oniqua recommends using SSO via SAML token as this allows our customers to use their in-house credentials as well as apply any further authentication mechanisms such as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) via their Identity Provider server such as ADFS. Where user credentials are managed by Oniqua, these credentials are stored using Microsoft Active Directory in an encrypted hash and are known only to the user.  Password complexity requirements and expiration dates are in place to ensure security best practices.

Firewall and Data Segregation: Application endpoints are secured using Web Application Firewall (WAF) technology from AWS as well as port blocking, traffic monitoring, and logging tools within Oniqua IQ.  This combination of technologies protects Oniqua’s services against malicious attacks including DDoS, SQL injection, cross-site scripting or any attempt to exploit security vulnerabilities in application software.  All connections to Oniqua cloud are logged.  All HTTP internet traffic is secured using SHA256 encryption. Our IQ platform application architecture has been designed to be multi-tiered with all communication between tiers encrypted using SSL and ACL’s.  Each customer’s (tenant’s) data is stored in individually secured databases.  Using individually stored tenant data with tenant-specific ID’s and credentials provide a secure barrier between all of our customers’ data.

How to Access and Control your Information

You have certain choices available to you when it comes to your information. Below is a summary of those choices, how to exercise them and any limitations.

Your Choices:
You have the right to request a copy of your information, to object to our use of your information (including for marketing purposes), to request the deletion or restriction of your information, request rectification of your data, request the transfer of your data (portability) or to request your information in a structured, electronic format. Below, we describe the processes for making this type of requests.  You can exercise some of the choices by logging into the Services and using settings available within the Services or your account. Where the Services are administered on your behalf by an administrator (see “Notice to End Users” below), you may need to contact your administrator to assist with your requests first.  For requests to access or remove privacy data submit a data privacy request here:  For all other requests, you may Contact Us via our website or via the Contact Us section below to request assistance.

Your request and choices may be limited in certain cases: for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal information about another person, or if you ask to delete information which we or your administrator are permitted by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep.  Where you have asked us to share data with third parties, for example, by installing third-party apps, you will need to contact those third-party service providers directly to have your information deleted or otherwise restricted.  If you have unresolved concerns, you may have the right to complain to a data protection authority in the country where you live, where you work or where you feel your rights were infringed.

Access and update your information: Our Services may give you the ability to access and update certain information about you from within the Service. For example, you can access your profile information from your account and search for content containing information about you using keyword searches and filters in the Service.  You can update your profile information within your profile settings and modify content that contains information about you using the editing tools associated with that content.

Rectification and changes to your data: Where a system does not exist or is not accessible for you to access and update your own information, you can request that Oniqua rectifies your data. Requests for data rectification can be made verbally using the contact numbers on this page, via email using the address or via mail to one of the addresses in the contact details on this page.

Portability of your data: You can request Oniqua make your data available in a structured commonly used format for your retrieval or transit to another data controller. You can request that Oniqua transmit your data in this format to another controller where technically feasible to do so.

Deactivate your account:  If you no longer wish to use our Services, you or your administrator may be able to deactivate your Services account. If you can deactivate your own account, that setting is available to you in your account settings. Otherwise, please contact your administrator. If you are an administrator and are unable to deactivate an account through your administrator settings, please contact our support at https// Please be aware that deactivating your account does not delete your information; your information remains visible to other Service users based on your past participation in the Services.  For more information on how to delete your information, see below.

Delete your information: Our Services and subscription agreement gives you the ability to delete certain information about you from within the Service. Please note, however, that we may need to retain certain information for record keeping purposes, to complete transactions or to comply with our legal obligations.

Request that we stop using your information:  In some cases, you may ask us to stop accessing, storing, using and otherwise processing your information where you believe we don’t have the appropriate rights to do so.  For example, if you believe a Services account was created for you without your permission or you are no longer an active user, you can request that we delete your account as provided in this notice.  Where you gave us consent to use your information for a limited purpose, you can contact us to withdraw that consent, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place at the time. You can also opt-out of our use of your information for marketing purposes by contacting us, as provided below.  When you make such requests, we may need time to investigate and facilitate your request.  If there is delay or dispute as to whether we have the right to continue using your information, we will restrict any further use of your information until the request is honoured or the dispute is resolved, provided your administrator does not object (where applicable).

Opt out of communications: You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from us by using the unsubscribe link within each email.  Even after you opt out from receiving promotional messages from us, you may continue to receive messages from us regarding our IQ Platform Services. If you are a resident of the European Economic Area, you will not be contacted for R&D or Marketing purposes unless you have opted in on these types of communications.

Turn off Cookie Controls: Relevant browser-based cookie controls are described in documentation provided by your browser.

Lodge a complaint to a relevant supervisory authority: If you believe that the use or processing of your personal data by Oniqua infringes your rights you can lodge a complaint to the relevant supervisory authority. If you are a resident of the European Economic area, complaints can be lodged to:

Oniqua operates an Information Security Management System (ISMS) which meets the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001 standard for the marketing, sale, development, implementation services and support of cloud-based analytical software.  The Oniqua ISMS is internally audited on a quarterly basis and achieved full external certification by SAI GLOBAL in October 2016.

The scope of the ISO27001 system covers all aspects of ISMS policy, procedure, physical and cloud security.  Oniqua commits to operate and constantly improve our operations in accordance with the guidelines and directions for this certification.  Please contact Oniqua if you would like would like more information about our operational security policies and processes.

Security is a shared responsibility

Oniqua makes all possible effort to secure our customer’s data and delivering security best practice through enforcing password requirements and making technologies like SSO via SAML available for our customers.  If a user’s password is compromised through their actions, accidental or otherwise Oniqua support can lock the account or reset the password.  Oniqua recommends that our customers take advantage of their internal security infrastructure where available and use SSO.

You can submit any questions, concerns, bugs, or potential vulnerabilities to our Oniqua support team at or through your account manager.  Any security-related issues are treated as the highest priority and will be addressed via our incident management process.

Our policy towards children: The Services are not directed to individuals under 16. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information, please contact

Employees: New employees are background checked and must be approved by senior management.  All new hires must also undergo mandatory training in our ISMS practices during recruitment.  All Oniqua employees receive refresher training on ISMS practices yearly.  Oniqua staff will be given access to customer data only in the event it is required to perform their job function.  In this event, the staff member receives further training on customer data security.

Third-Parties: Oniqua will occasionally engage a third-party consultancy or service for security testing or infrastructure and application improvements.  In this case, where possible, the work will be done on systems or areas of the systems with no access to customer data. Where a third-party requires access to customer data to perform a service, the third-party is required to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Network Security: Oniqua maintains dedicated network segmentation between office locations, production region/s, and development region/s.  This network segmentation allows strict controls of traffic and services between network.  Access between networks enforces a policy of denied access to all services until explicitly allowed after a review by Oniqua ISMS staff and senior operations staff. All traffic to network segments containing customer data is restricted to encrypted connections and further restricted by using network access control lists (ACL’s).  Access to control ACL’s and firewalls between network segments is restricted to ISMS staff and senior operations staff. All access to network segments and systems containing customer data is further secured by requiring multi-factor authentication by all ISMS and operations staff.
