Privacy Policy


1.1 Clipchamp Pty Ltd ABN 89 162 516 556 (weus or our) has adopted this Privacy Policy to ensure that we have standards in place to protect the Personal Information that we collect about individuals that is necessary and incidental to:

  1. Providing the system and services that we offer; and

  2. The normal day-to-day operations of our business.

1.2 This Privacy Policy follows the standards of both:

  1. The Australian Privacy Principles set by the Australian Government for the handling of Personal Information under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act); and

  2. The regulations and principles set by the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for the handling of Personal Data.

1.3 By publishing this Privacy Policy we aim to make it easy for our customers and the public to understand what Personal Information we collect and store, why we do so, how we receive, obtain, store and/or use that information, and the rights of control an individual has with respect to their Personal Information in our possession.



2.1 Our Privacy Policy deals with how we handle “personal information” and “personal data” as it is defined in the Privacy Act and the GDPR respectively (Personal Information).

2.2 We handle Personal Information in our own right and also for and on behalf of our customers and users.

2.3 Our Privacy Policy does not apply to information we collect about businesses or companies, however it does apply to information about the people in those businesses or companies which we store.

2.4 The Privacy Policy applies to all forms of information, physical and digital, whether collected or stored electronically or in hardcopy.

2.5 If, at any time, an individual provides Personal Information or other information about someone other than himself or herself, the individual warrants that they have that person’s consent to provide such information for the purpose specified.

2.6 We consider the protection of privacy of children very important and we have special processes in place for the collection of personal information from children. These are set out at point 7 below.



3.1 In the course of business it is necessary for us to collect Personal Information. This information allows us to identify who an individual is for the purposes of our business, share Personal Information when asked of us, contact the individual in the ordinary course of business and transact with the individual. Without limitation, the type of information we may collect is:

  1. Personal Information. We may collect personal details such as an individual’s name, location, date of birth, nationality, family details and other information defined as “Personal Information” in the Privacy Act that allows us to identify who the individual is;

  2. Contact Information. We may collect information such as an individual’s email address, telephone & fax number, third-party usernames, residential, business and postal address and other information that allows us to contact the individual;

  3. Financial Information. We may collect financial information, via certified PCI compliant payment gateway providers, related to an individual such as any bank or credit card details used to transact with us and other information that allows us to transact with the individual and/or provide them with our services;

  4. Statistical Information. We may collect information about an individual’s online and offline preferences, habits, movements, trends, decisions, associations, memberships, finances, purchases and other information for statistical purposes; and

  5. Information an individual sends us. We may collect any personal correspondence that an individual sends us, or that is sent to us by others about the individual’s activities.

3.2 We may collect other Personal Information about an individual, which we will maintain in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

3.3 We may also collect non-Personal Information about an individual such as information regarding their computer, network and browser. This may include their IP address in some circumstances. Where non-Personal Information is collected the Australian Privacy Principles and the GDPR do not apply.



4.1 Most information will be collected in association with an individual’s use of the Clipchamp service (Clipchamp) an enquiry about Clipchamp or generally dealing with us. However we may also receive Personal Information from sources such as advertising, an individual’s own promotions, public records, mailing lists, contractors, staff, recruitment agencies and our business partners.  In particular, information is likely to be collected as follows:

  1. Registrations/Subscriptions. When an individual registers or subscribes for a service, account, connection or other process whereby they enter Personal Information details in order to receive or access something, including a transaction;

  2. When an individual supplies us with goods or services;

  3. When an individual contacts us in any way;

  4. When an individual accesses our services physically we may require them to provide us with details for us to permit them such access.

  5. When an individual accesses our services through the internet we may collect information using first party cookies or analytical services such as Google Remarketing. (If relevant – an individual can adjust their browser’s setting to accept or reject cookies. For information about opting-out of Google Analytics cookies, click here.)

    1. We use first party cookies for Site analytics purposes, such as collecting information pertaining to your activities on our Site, including your session durations, the Site content you accessed and your interactions and user-interface clicks with respect to such content, the Internet protocol (IP) address of the device from which you accessed our Site, the browser you used, its version and language (i.e. locale) preferences, and the approximate geographical area from which you accessed the Site.

    2. We also use third party cookies for marketing and advertisement purposes, in order to deliver to you more relevant ads for our products and services as you surf the web (this is known as “retargeting”).

  6. When an individual accesses our services they may opt in to share Personal Information with us, including their videos on the services:

    1. for the purposes of storage or sharing through our third party cloud storage facility; and/or

    2. for the purpose of us storing a copy of the video which we may examine if their video export process encounters an error;

  7. Pixel Tags. Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read and they tell us whether mail has been opened.

  8. YouTube API Services. We use YouTube Application Program Interface (API) Services to manage your YouTube account in order for you to upload videos directly to YouTube from Clipchamp using our export to YouTube feature.

    Clipchamp has obtained an API key to access your YouTube account information. Clipchamp keeps this key confidential. Only the video that you have selected to upload to YouTube will be shared to YouTube. We do not collect, store or otherwise use your YouTube account information. Your YouTube account information will not be transferred to others or used for serving advertisements. 

    By using Clipchamp you also agree to the Google Privacy Policy.

    You can revoke our access to your data via the Google security settings page at any time. 

4.2 As there are many circumstances in which we may collect information both electronically and physically, we will endeavour to ensure that an individual is always aware of when their Personal Information is being collected.

4.3 Where we obtain Personal Information without an individual’s knowledge (such as by accidental acquisition from a client) we will either delete/destroy the information, or inform the individual that we hold such information, in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles and the GDPR.



5.1 In general, the primary principle is that we will not use any Personal Information other than for the purpose for which it was collected other than with the individual’s permission. The purpose of collection is determined by the circumstances in which the information was collected and/or submitted.

5.2 We will only process Personal Information when we can identify a lawful basis to do so. It is always our responsibility to ensure that we can demonstrate which lawful basis applies to the particular processing purpose.

5.3 The most common lawful bases relied upon are:

  1. Consent: we will only rely upon express, clear and informed consent. Any consent provided may specify and/or restrict the purpose, and can be withdrawn at any time without penalty. We will keep a record of when and how we got consent from an individual.

  2. Legitimate interests: we will only rely upon an identifiable legitimate interest where we can demonstrate that the processing of Personal Information is necessary to achieve it by balancing it against the individual’s interests, rights and freedoms. We will keep a record of our legitimate interests assessments.

5.4 We will retain Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

5.5 If it is necessary for us to disclose an individual’s Personal Information to third parties in a manner compliant with the Australian Privacy Principles and the GDPR in the course of our business, we will inform you that we intend to do so, or have done so, as soon as practical.

5.6 We will not disclose or sell an individual’s Personal Information to unrelated third parties under any circumstances, unless the prior written consent of the individual is obtained.

5.7 Information is used to enable us to operate our business, especially as it relates to an individual. This may include:

  1. The provision and improvement of services between an individual and us;

  2. Verifying an individual’s identity;

  3. Where an individual opts in, storing copies of their videos on the services for our examination where a video export error occurs;

  4. Communicating with an individual about:

    1. Their relationship with us;

    2. Our goods and services;

    3. Our own marketing and promotions to customers and prospects;

    4. Competitions, surveys and questionnaires;

  5. Investigating any complaints about or made by an individual, or if we have reason to suspect that an individual is in breach of any of our terms and conditions or that an individual is or has been otherwise engaged in any unlawful activity; and/or

  6. As required or permitted by any law (including the Privacy Act).

5.8 The individual shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of their Personal Information for direct marketing purposes, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If we receive such a request, we will stop the processing of Personal Information for direct marketing purposes immediately without charge or penalty.

5.9 There are some circumstances in which we must disclose an individual’s information:

  1. Where we reasonably believe that an individual may be engaged in fraudulent, deceptive or unlawful activity that a governmental authority should be made aware of;

  2. As required by any law (including the Privacy Act); and/or

  3. In order to sell our business (in that we may need to transfer Personal Information to a new owner).

5.10 We will not disclose an individual’s Personal Information to any entity outside of Australia that is in a jurisdiction that does not have a similar regime to the Australian Privacy Principles or an implemented and enforceable privacy policy similar to this Privacy Policy.

5.11 We may utilise third-party service providers to host our services, communicate with an individual, assist us process payments, to assist us with marketing and to store contact details about an individual. These service providers may be located outside of Australia. A list of our current third-party service providers is available here.

5.12 An individual who uses Clipchamp will be sending information (including Personal Information) to the United States where our servers are located. That information may then be transferred within the United States or back out of the United States to other countries outside of the individual’s country of residence, depending on the type of information and how it is stored by us. These countries may not necessarily have data protection laws as comprehensive or protective as those in your country of residence, however our collection, storage and use of Personal Information will at all times continue to be governed by this Privacy Policy.



6.1 An individual may opt to not have us collect and/or process their Personal Information. This may prevent us from offering them some or all of our services and may terminate their access to some or all of the services they access with or through us.  They will be aware of this when:

  1. Opt In. Where relevant, the individual will have the right to choose to have information collected (including Personal Information and copies of their videos on the services) and/or receive information from us (for clarity, consent must involve an unambiguous positive action to opt in); or

  1. Opt Out. Where relevant, the individual will have the right to choose to exclude himself or herself from some or all collection of information (including Personal Information and copies of their videos on the services) and/or receiving information from us.

6.2 If an individual believes that they have received information from us that they did not opt in or out to receive, they should contact us using the details as set out in section 11 below.


7. Privacy & Children

7.1 In the European Union and Australia, if you are an individual under 16 years of age, then you must not use or access the service or provide us with your Personal Information at any time or in any manner without your parent or legal guardian’s verifiable consent.

7.2 In the United States. If you are an individual under 13 years of age, we require one of the following:

  1. You are using the service as part of your school’s account strictly for educational purposes and the school has your parent or legal guardian’s consent to consent to the collection of your Personal Information on behalf of your parent or legal guardian; or

  2. You have the consent of your parent or legal guardian to share your Personal Information with us, to create an account and/or access the service which we will verify via an email sent to your parent or legal guardian setting out what Personal Information we require, how we will use and disclose that Personal Information and a link to our Privacy Policy. Your parent or legal guardian can then input this Personal Information (to create an account for you and allow you access to the services) or your parent or legal guardian can choose to refuse to input this Personal Information (restricting the creation of an account for you and your access to the services). Where your parent or legal guardian refuses to give their consent or does not reply within a reasonable time, we will delete your Personal Information and the parent’s or legal guardian’s contact details.

7.3 Parents and legal guardians who have given consent on behalf of you may request by contacting us via email to review the Personal Information we hold about you and ask us to stop collecting, using or sharing your Personal Information.

7.4 Where we no longer require your Personal Information for the purpose it was originally collected and we have no other lawful basis or legal obligation for us to continue to hold that Personal Information we will delete or de-identify that Personal Information.

7.5 If we learn that Personal Information has been collected on the service from persons under the minimum age for that jurisdiction, without verifiable parental or legal guardian consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete or destroy such information.



8.1 We have appointed a Data Protection Officer to oversee the management of this Privacy Policy and compliance with the Australian Privacy Principles, the Privacy Act and the GDPR. This officer may have other duties within our business and also be assisted by internal and external professionals and advisors.

8.2 We will take all reasonable precautions to protect an individual’s Personal Information from unauthorised access. This includes appropriately securing our physical facilities and electronic networks.

8.3 We use SSL encryption to store and transfer Personal Information. Despite this, the security of online transactions and the security of communications sent by electronic means or by post cannot be guaranteed. Each individual that provides information to us via the internet or by post does so at their own risk.  We cannot accept responsibility for misuse or loss of, or unauthorised access to, Personal Information where the security of information is not within our control.

8.4 We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of any third party (including third parties that we are permitted to disclose an individual’s Personal Information to in accordance with this policy or any applicable laws), unless otherwise required by the Privacy Act and the GDPR. The collection and use of an individual’s information by such third parties may be subject to separate privacy and security policies.

8.5 If an individual suspects any misuse or loss of, or unauthorised access to, their Personal Information, they should let us know immediately.

8.6 We are not liable for any loss, damage or claim arising out of another person’s use of the Personal Information where we were authorised to provide that person with the Personal Information.

8.7 Where there is a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, Personal Information, then:

  1. We will immediately establish the likelihood and severity of the resulting risk to wider rights and freedoms of natural persons;

  2. If we determine there is a risk from the security breach, then we will immediately notify the relevant supervisory authority and provide all relevant information on the particular breach, and by no later than 72 hours after having first become aware of the breach;

  3. If we determine there is a high risk from the security breach (a higher threshold than set for notifying supervisory authorities), we will immediately notify the affected individuals and provide all relevant information on the particular breach without undue delay.

8.8 We will document the facts relating to any security breach, its effects and the remedial action taken, and investigate the cause of the breach and how to prevent similar situations in the future.
