Our use of Personal Information may extend beyond these uses, but will be restricted to purposes that we consider to be related to the operation and improvement of KM2Me and ARTC related functions and activities.


What about device-based location information?

KM2Me requires access to device-based location information as a part of its core function. By ‘allowing’ ARTC to access your device-based location information you are consenting to the collection, use, transmission, processing and maintenance of your location data, including the real-time geographic location of your device. Such information may include, but is not limited to, your device ID and name, device type and real-time geographic location of your device whilst downloading or using KM2Me.

This fee will be explained to you before it has been incurred.

We will respond to your access request within a reasonable period of time by:

Access requests may be denied where:

  • we believe your request is frivolous or vexatious;
