Surfsight Privacy Policy

Version 2.1.2 – 01 July 2023

This policy outlines the ways in which Optix Australasia Pty Ltd ACN 113 677 473 (Company”) and its related entities (“We, Our or Us”) collect, use, disclose, store, secure, manage and dispose of your Personal Information in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles (“the APPs”).

Where the words “Personal Information” are used in this policy, that expression means information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable:

      1. whether the information or opinion is true or not; and
      2. whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.

By providing us with Personal Information, to the extent consent is required by us, you consent to our use of that Personal Information in accordance with this policy.

The Kind of Personal Information We Collect and Hold  [APP 1.4(a)]

The kind of Personal Information we collect relating to you will depend on the nature of your relationship with us.


If you are a reseller, we will generally collect the following particulars of your Personal Information in order to provide services to you:

      1. your name, address and contact details;
      2. your credit card or bank account details;
      3. credit checks and company searches;
      4. purchase and enquiry history with us;
      5. any other information you disclose to us through interacting with the services, our personnel or otherwise.

Reseller’s Customer and their Employees

Our technology allows us to capture video of people driving the Reseller’s Customer’s vehicles (Driver). Vehicle-mounted event video recorders capture the forward-facing view of the road and other vehicles, as well as what is going on inside the vehicle. Additional cameras may capture video around the vehicle, such as down the sides and at the rear. Our technology is fitted with sensors such as accelerometers, which measure the vehicle’s g-force activity. Our technology also tracks the Driver’s vehicle location and the speed at which the vehicle is travelling through the use of GPS. Our technology may also record audio of the interior of the vehicle cabin. This data is fed to our server, which can then be accessed by the Reseller’s Customer and us. This data is used by the Reseller’s Customer to monitor their Driver’s driving of fleet vehicles.

Online Visitors

We collect website activity statistics such as the number of visitors, pages visited, time and date of visit and where you accessed our website from, so that we can make informed decisions relating to improving our website and the services we deliver. This information is anonymous and doesn’t identify a person.

You should consult the privacy policy outlined on each website in order to verify how that website collects, uses, discloses, stores, secures, manages, and disposes of Personal Information.

Anonymity and Pseudonymity

You are entitled to provide your Personal Information to us without identifying yourself or through the use of a pseudonym, unless:

      1. we are required by law to only deal with individuals who have identified themselves when providing the services that you have requested we provide; or
      2. we form the view that it is impractical to provide the services that you have requested we provide without being able to identify you personally.

In these circumstances, we reserve the right to not provide services to you unless you identify yourself when providing your Personal Information.
