Privacy Policy


This document sets out the privacy policy of FILIT Pty Ltd (ACN 674 584 699) (referred to in this privacy policy as ‘FILIT’, ‘we’, ‘us’, or ‘our’).

This privacy policy applies whenever we collect your personal information and/or personal data (Personal Data) on our platform which will comprehensively profile, plan, track, report, analyse, review and support individuals with development, behaviour and wellbeing concerns in educational settings (Platform). By providing personal information (including sensitive information) to us, you consent to our storage, security, access, maintenance, use and disclosing of personal information in accordance with this privacy policy.

This includes between you, the visitor to this Platform (whether directly as an individual, or on behalf of your company, employer, organisation, government department or other legal entity), and us, the owner and provider of this Platform, and where we are directed by a third party to process your personal data.

We take our privacy obligations seriously. Please read this privacy policy carefully as it contains important information on who we are and how and why we collect, store, use and share your personal data in connection with your use of our Platform. It also explains your rights in relation to your personal data and how to contact us or a relevant regulator in the event you have a complaint.


All personal information we collect is stored on servers located in Australia and, for the most part, we do not disclose or transfer personal information overseas.

However, the cloud service providers we engage to provide us Australian-based servers may operate overseas disaster recovery sites or have personnel overseas who may access the personal data we hold to assist us in managing our servers.

Our Platform is accessed via a secure web browser connection, ensuring encrypted data transmission. To allow for a responsive and interactive user experience, we use an integration software which is securely connected to the Platform. To protect your personal data and store it securely, we use advanced data integrity checks in the Platform.

We take reasonable steps to ensure your personal data is secure and protected from misuse or unauthorised access. We have the following security measures in place to protect your private and/or sensitive information:
(a) We use a secure cloud environment software to host our services through the Platform. This software will assist by protecting your account against unauthorised access and potential threats.
(b) We use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to verify any user identity and enforce our access policies that we have in place.
(c) We request access on all devices used at educational sites.
(d) We isolate each school’s data within dedicated environments. This provides another layer of security for your data privacy and compliance with local regulations, education standards, and relevant laws.
(e) We use software that allows us to maintain a separate secure environment for client-specific data and operations.
(f) We secure the Platform with HTTPS security to ensure all data transmitted is encrypted.
(g) We have a valid SSL certificate, confirming the Platform’s identity and enabling an encrypted connection.

Although we use a range of technology systems, administrative and technical measures to protect these systems, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data.

There are different types of accounts, which will determine the relevant users’ access to the Platform. The access for each account type is set out in the FILIT Security Data Sheet, which can be found at

We have outlined further information on access control below:
(a) We use role-based access control to ensure that users have access only to the data and features necessary for their role. This assists with minimising potential internal threats.
(b) We incorporated software into the Platform to:
(a) manage groups and permissions efficiently. This allows for granular control over the access ability of each user; and
(b) employ unique identifiers for each user, providing traceability and accountability for all actions within the system.


The personal information we collect may include the following:
(a) name;
(b) mailing or street address;
(c) email address;
