Sealion Software is a software development business and we run this website at sealionsoftware.com to advertise our services and publish articles on the subject of Enterprise Software Development. We hope you find the website interesting and we hope we can be of service to you. We are based in Australia and seek to uphold the Australian Privacy Principles, as well as being generally good internet citizens and a trustworthy business partner for our clients.
As a provider of services rather than a data business (like a social media company), we do not have an interest in gathering data about you as a resource in its own right, we just gather the data required for the website to perform the functions it advertises (like making comments on articles and making requests for callbacks). We also gather some data so that we can tell if the website is being visited, and how it is being used – a process known in the industry as “Analytics”.
Data that we might hold about you
All the pages on the site have a link to a contact form which you can use to request a callback from one of our staff if you wish to have a chat about our services. Its generally good practice for software to only request the data necessary to perform the service, so we try to keep this form as small as possible. We may ask for and retain information on:
- First and Second Names (so we know who requested the callback)
- A Phone Number (so we can call you)
- Country (so that we can make sure we are calling you in your time-zones business hours)
Additionally following a call we will make notes on the conversation and the subjects discussed, which may include other contact addresses like email and postal addresses as appropriate.
All the pages on the site have links to our social media presence. Social media sites are a great way to keep in contact with friends, publish personal content and create a single identity to use to log in across multiple sites such as ours. However, these sites are responsible for their own data policies which you should consider before using their services.
Some of our articles may allow users to comment when they are logged in with a social media identity. We require users to be logged in before posting. This leads to a better quality discussion on the subjects raised and a better experience for all the readers of the site. We will display the comment itself, the time of the post, your name from your profile and your avatar.
We use the Google Analytics service to track how many visitors our site receives and how they use our site.
Embedded content from other websites
Who we share your data with
Sealion Software will never sell or give away personally identifiable information to third parties. We may from time to time use the services of reputable external contractors, such as marketing agencies or independent software testers who would have access to the data we hold for the purposes of performing the job we have hired them to do.
How long we retain your data
Comments and contact details will be held until we decide the data is no longer useful, such as when the page a comment is on is removed or when we run housekeeping on our database.
Your rights over your data
At any time you can request that any contact information that we have for you is updated or removed. Comments, being published on our website, exist in the public domain and others may have copies them which we cannot control. For example, some websites have a cache feature for accessing previous versions of other websites that can be found through search engines. Think carefully before you post! Nevertheless, we can remove comments and any associated metadata from our site on request.
