Where we hold your personal information

All Data, including personal and non-personal information, that is entered into the Service by You, or automatically imported on Your instruction, is transferred to Maropost’s servers as a function of transmission across the Internet. By using the Service, You consent to Your personal information being transferred to the Maropost servers as set out in this Policy.

Currently Maropost hosts infrastructure in Australia and USA. Your data will be hosted in the region that makes the most sense for your business. For redundancy purposes, backups are stored in other regions from where the primary data store resides.

ZELLIS will also store your personal and non-personal information within our own internal systems which are only accessible by our authorised staff, advisors and contractors.

By providing Your personal information to ZELLIS and/or Maropost, You consent to Maropost storing Your personal information on servers hosted in Australia. While Your personal information will be stored on servers located in Australia, it will remain within Maropost’s effective control at all times. The server host’s role is limited to providing a hosting and storage service to Maropost, and Maropost has taken steps to ensure that their server hosts do not have access to, and use the necessary level of protection for, Your personal information.

If You do not want Your personal information to be transferred to a server located in the Australia, You should not provide Maropost with Your personal information or use the Service.


We take steps to protect your personal information

ZELLIS and Maropost are both committed to protecting the security of Your personal information and we take all reasonable precautions to protect it from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Your personal information is stored on secure servers that have SSL Certificates issued by leading certificate authorities, and all Data transferred between You and the Service is encrypted. You can find out more about Maropost’s security arrangements and data protection measures at

However, the Internet is not in itself a secure environment and neither ZELLIS nor Maropost can give an absolute assurance that Your information will be secure at all times. Transmission of personal information over the Internet is at Your own risk and You should only enter, or instruct the entering of, personal information to the Service within a secure environment.

We will advise You at the first reasonable opportunity upon discovering or being advised of a security breach where Your personal information is lost, stolen, accessed, used, disclosed, copied, modified, or disposed of by any unauthorised persons or in any unauthorised manner.


We only disclose Your Personal Information in limited circumstances

ZELLIS and/or Maropost will only disclose the personal information You have provided to us to entities outside our own organisations if it is necessary and appropriate to facilitate the purpose for which Your personal information was collected pursuant to this Policy, including the provision of the Service.

Neither ZELLIS nor Maropost will otherwise disclose Your personal information to a third party unless You have provided Your express consent. However, You should be aware that ZELLIS and/or Maropost may be required to disclose Your personal information without Your consent in order to comply with any court orders, subpoenas, or other legal process or investigation including by tax authorities, if such disclosure is required by law. Where possible and appropriate, we will notify You if we are required by law to disclose Your personal information.

The third parties who host our servers do not control, and are not permitted to access or use Your personal information except for the limited purpose of storing the information. This means that, for the purposes of Australian privacy legislation and Australian users of the Service, Maropost does not currently “disclose” personal information to third parties located overseas.

As a provider of web development, training and merchant support services, ZELLIS may share your personal and non-personal information with our staff and contractors for the delivery of our services to You.
