We acknowledge the importance of privacy in respect to our customers’ personal information. We are committed to managing your personal information in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). For more information, please visit www.privacy.gov.au.
Where your personal information is collected, it will be done so directly, with your permission, whether that is in person, by telephone, internet or post. If you choose not to provide your personal information to us, it may restrict our ability to provide you with the service you require.

- contact details such as email and telephone number

If you provide us with personal information that we have not requested (unsolicited personal information) we will, unless otherwise required or permitted by law, delete or destroy it as soon as possible after receiving it.

Use of Information
We only collect and use personal information for the purposes for which it was provided to us (which will normally be obvious at the time of collection), related purposes or as permitted or required by law. By providing your personal information to us, you consent to the use of this information by us for:
(1) the purposes of the order, supply and delivery of goods;
(2) communication for the purposes of customer cares and warranties, and general goods purchased from us; and
(3) to send to you from time to time, marketing and promotional material including but not limited to, invitations to events, special offers and company bulletins.
Disclosure of Information
Any personal information provided to us may be disclosed, if appropriate, to other entities in order to facilitate the purpose for which the information was collected. Such entities generally include:
1) third party service providers for the purpose of enabling them to provide a service to us such as secure storage and archiving services or to manage any other aspect of our business;
2) government bodies, regulators, law enforcement agencies and any other parties where authorised or required by law and as permitted by the Privacy Act;
3) other entities if you have given your express consent; and
4) any other entities identified at the time of collecting your personal information or to which we are legally required to disclose your personal information.
Protection of Information
We take reasonable steps to protect any personal information that we hold from misuse, interference and loss and from unauthorised access, alteration and disclosure. For example, we implement security measures such as security procedures for access to our business premises and within our offices, as well as IT security procedures including password protection, firewalls and other site monitoring procedures.
However, data protection measures are never completely secure and, despite the measures we have put in place, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. You must take care to protect your personal information (for example, by protecting any usernames and passwords).
If you would like to unsubscribe or opt out from receiving our newsletters or updates at any time, for any reason, please follow the instructions at the relevant site (which will normally be at the bottom of the page). Alternatively, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will investigate the issue and determine the steps (if any) that we will undertake to resolve your complaint. We will contact you if we require any additional information from you and will notify you in writing of the outcome of the investigation.
If you are not satisfied with our determination, you can contact us to discuss your concerns or complain to the Australian Privacy Commissioner via www.oaic.gov.au
