This policy sets out the principles that we adopt in order to protect "personal information" as defined under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). These principles deal generally with our collection, use and disclosure of, and your access to personal information you may have supplied to us. However, it does not relate to information regarding other entities such as companies or other organisations â€“ it relates only to personal information relating to individuals.


From time to time we will collect certain personal information about you. We collect personal information about you such as (customer Location, including, state, postal code and country).
We collect personal information to assist us in providing the goods or services you have requested, and to improve our products and services. 

We do not outsource collection or disclosure of any such information without your permission to do so. We will seek your permission before doing that. 

We may receive information about you from third parties, but if we are to use such information for any reason other than for supplying you with further information, we will let you know shortly after we receive it.

 You do not have to provide us with personal information. However, if you choose not to, we may be unable to provide  you with access to  certain products and services.

We will only use your personal information for the reasons we collected it. Unless we have first obtained your consent, these reasons and the parties to whom we might disclose it will be reasonably apparent to you when we collect your information and our use and disclosure of that information will only be to provide or offer you or other parties
our various services. We  may be in touch with you by any means (including email or SMS) to let you know about goods, services or promotions which may be of interest to you.

  • destroy or permanently de-identify the information if it is no longer needed for any purpose.

  However, the internet is not a secure environment and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
