FAQs

We get asked a lot of questions. We mean a lot. It's not a problem, but to save you time we've started collating some common answers in one spot.

What is Openly For Business?

We're a privacy-tech solution for SMB's who need help with getting their privacy practices in order. We offer easy to complete privacy modules and all the tools needed to become compliant with the Australian Privacy Act and the Openly Privacy Code.

Who should sign up?

If you run a small to medium sized business that collects any personal information (name, email, phone, credit card, identification documents etc...) you should consider signing up. Although you may not be required by law to be compliant with the Australian Privacy Act, you are not immune to data breaches and negative privacy events. Openly For Business makes it super simple for you to get your privacy practices in order.

Why would I sign up?

That's the billion dollar question. $3.52b to be exact. That's how much Australian businesses spent on recovery from data breaches in 2020. Regardless of your size, you should be treating your customer's personal information with care and respect. We understand that privacy can be confusing, but we've made it simple. If you suffer a data breach, the damage done to your business could be irrepairable.

What do I get?

When you sign up for a pro plan, you'll get access to every Privacy Essentials module, plus the tools needed to keep your privacy practices under control. Free users will get limited access to these tools.

What will this cost me?

You can get started for free... check out our pricing page. If you're a very small business, a not for profit, or an education institution, get in touch with us. We'd be happy to discuss pricing with you.

What are the benefits of completing each module?

Aside from the protections you gain by being compliant with the Australian Privacy Act and the Openly Privacy Code, you may find it easier to get cyber insurance, bid on Government contracts and expand into overseas markets.

Who cares about privacy?

Your customers! 88% of Australians say that they have chosen not to deal with a business due to privacy concerns.

What happens once I am compliant?

You can choose to have Openly certify your compliance with the Australian Privacy Act and the Openly Privacy Code. If you successfully complete certification, you will be awarded a privacy seal that you can put on your website, and you will be included on the Certification Register.
