Last updated 1 November 2019

This Privacy Policy applies to how we collect, use and process your information when you use the TenderAlerts website, services, applications and tools (collectively the "Service" or the "Website").

This Privacy Policy forms part of the TenderAlerts Terms of Service . By using the Service you agree to this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service.

We may update the Privacy Policy at any time, with changes taking effect when you next use the Service or 30 days after we post the updated Privacy Policy on the website, whichever is earlier.

By using the Service you provide us with your express consent and agreement that we may collect, receive, record, organise, collate, store, update, change, retrieve, read, process, use and share your information, in the ways set out in this Privacy Policy.

You should be aware that when you click certain links on the Website you will be redirected to other companies' properties outside of our hosted environment, where any information collected is outside of our control. The privacy policy of the third parties' properties or applications will govern the information obtained from you by these third parties.


Account and User information: When you use certain aspects of the Service, we require that you register as a user and require your first name, last name, valid email address, telephone number, password, company and billing details. We also require you to select certain preferences to enable the Service to work.

Website and Mobile Data: We may automatically receive and log information on our servers from your browser or device, including your IP address, software and hardware attributes, pages that you request, mobile identifiers, information about website usage, and other device or systems-level information.


We may collect certain information through technology like cookies, pixels and local storage (on your browser or device). Cookies are small text files that store information on your computer, mobile phone or other device locally. Pixels are small images that are part of codes on webpages that allow another server to measure viewing of a webpage and are often used in connection with cookies. The code tracks when a user has engaged with a specific screen or portion of a screen.

With the help of cookies, the web server can save, for instance, preferences and settings on the user's computer, mobile phone or other device, which are then automatically restored on the next visit. Cookies are used, among other things, to make the use of the website more user-friendly so that, for instance, you do not have to repeat the login process when you visit again. We use both persistent cookies and session cookies. Whereas persistent cookies remain on your computer for a longer period, session cookies are automatically deleted when the browser window is closed.

We may allow third parties such as advertising or analytics providers to collect information using these types of technologies directly on our Website. The data that they collect is subject to the applicable privacy policy of those third parties.


We use the information we collect to fulfil your requests; provide the Service's functionality; improve the Service's quality; personalise your experience; track usage of the Service; display relevant advertising; market the Service; provide customer support; message you; back up our systems and allow for disaster recovery; enhance the security of the Service; and comply with any legal obligations.


Third parties may receive information about you as follows:

  • We may share information we collect with our affiliates and business partners; in which case we will require them to honour this Privacy Policy.
  • If another company acquires TenderAlerts or all or substantially all its assets, that company will possess the same information, and will assume the rights and obligations with respect to that information as described in this Privacy Policy.
  • We may share your information with third-party service providers, such as communications and hosting services, network security, technical and customer support, tracking and reporting functions, quality assurance testing, payment processing, our own marketing of the Service, and other functions, to assist in offering aspects of the Service, in which case they shall have no authority to independently use any information they process on our behalf, and shall be subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
  • We reserve the right to share your information with private or public authorities that will enable us to fight fraud and abuse on our network, to investigate suspected violations of law, or to fight any other suspected breach of our terms of service.
  • We may share your information with government authorities as required by applicable law.
  • We may share certain non-personal information (data that does not identify our users individually) with third-party service providers, trusted partners or approved researchers in order to better understand what advertisements or services may interest you.


Access, Correction and Deletion: For users that have created an account with us, you can access, correct or delete your information by using various sections of the Website or by contacting us.

Third-Party Choice: Certain third parties that may be active on our site, e.g. Google AdWords, give you the ability to opt out of their collection and use of information for interest-based advertising.

Cookies: Most major desktop and mobile web browsers provide controls that allow you to limit or block the setting of cookies on your systems. Note that disabling cookies in your browser may result in decreased functionality in certain instances.


You can close your account by stopping to use the Service or by contacting us. We retain information to comply with legal obligations or to prevent, investigate or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service.


All information we collect is protected by reasonable technical means and reasonable security procedures in order to prevent unauthorised access or use of data. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we try to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information in the course of its transmission.


You hereby consent to and authorise that we may transfer your personal information to another country. We may use this consent if we decide, in our sole discretion, that the transfer is required or desirable to (i) allow us to provide the Service in a practical or cost effective manner, (ii) allow us to meet our contractual obligations to you (iii) allow us to meet our contractual obligations to a third party, and/or (iv) is otherwise to your benefit in providing the Service.
