This policy applies across all websites that we own and operate and all services we provide.
Information you provide
Personal information is information about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable.
We collect personal information when you become a client or otherwise use, access, or interact with our services. Personal information we collect for all users includes:
- Contact information such as name and email address, telephone number and mailing address

ERBGS’s core activity is to provide business advisory services and training. To provide this we require information on:
- Business structure and operations
- Relationships with other service providers
- Products and services

- Financial analysis and reporting on business entities such as companies, trusts etc. To provide this service ERBGS requires
- Accounting information related to an entity (eg. Chart of Accounts, Profit & Loss, Balance Sheet), and
- Other non-financial information related to the entity to supplement this accounting information (eg. KPI results).
This information can be entered manually, uploaded from a spreadsheet you provide or imported directly from third party services (eg. Xero, MYOB etc.) where you have given us permission to do so.

ERBGS and our third party partners also use other tracking technologies like ‘web beacons (also known as “tracking pixels”).
