5 Cookies and Browser Analytics
5.1 What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by the websites you visit. They are processed and stored by your web browser. When you visit a website or engage with a business through social media, certain information is collected by cookies. This is generally anonymous information, and it does not reveal your identity. In and of themselves, cookies are harmless and serve crucial functions. However, they are widely used to make websites work more efficiently, improve the user experience, and provide information about the use of a website.
5.3 How Can I Remove Cookies?
6 Data Retention and Security
6.1 Security Mechanisms We Employ
Generally, we store your Personal Information using secure servers protected from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure. However, like most businesses, we hold some information on our staff's computers (such as emails from you) and where necessary as hard copy files (such as printed invoices).
Our systems are located in Australia and are managed by our service providers and us. Personal information that we store or transmit is protected by security and access controls, including username and password authentication, multi-factor authentication, and data encryption (such as SSL) where appropriate.
In our dealings with third party service providers, we take care to work with subcontractors and service providers who we believe maintain an acceptable standard of data security compliance.
6.2 How Long We Keep Your Personal Information
We retain your Personal Information for as long as is necessary to provide our goods to you, as required for our internal business operations, and to comply with our legal obligations.
If we hold Personal Information about you, and we do not need that information for any purpose, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify that information, in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles (APP) and the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), unless we are prevented from doing so by law.
Under Australian law, financial records, such as those relating to financial transactions, must be retained for 7 years after the transactions associated with those records are completed.
7 Disclosure Of Your Personal Information
7.1 Who We Share Your Personal Information With?
Your Personal Information may be disclosed to:
(a) Our employees, a related company and our professional advisers (lawyers, accountants, financial advisers, etc.);
(b) Regulators and government authorities in connection with our compliance procedures and obligations, including law enforcement agencies to assist in the investigation and prevention of criminal activities;
(c) A third party, in order to enforce or defend our rights, or to address financial or reputational risks;
(d) Third party contractors, suppliers and service providers with whom we have a business association, including:
(i) Delivery and transportation providers;
(ii) Payment gateway providers;
(iii) Administration service providers;
(iv) Marketing service providers; and
(v) Information technology service providers, including cloud application providers.
We will not disclose your Personal Information other than in accordance with this policy without your consent.
7.2 Offshore Transfers
We may disclose your Personal Information to third party contractors, service providers and suppliers with whom we have a business association that operate in Australia and overseas.
While we do not otherwise actively disclose your Personal Information to overseas entities, our engagement of service providers, such as those who operate cloud services, may have international data centres and disaster recovery sites. Consequently, these providers may have access to your information offshore. We rely solely on reputable organisations for such cloud services.
8 Anonymity and Use of Pseudonyms
If you contact us with a general enquiry, we may interact with you anonymously or through the use of pseudonyms. However, you are required to provide true and accurate details when requesting the supply of goods. You agree you will provide accurate information if we require it.
9 Access to Personal Information and Corrections
We endeavour only to hold Personal Information that is accurate, complete and up-to-date. However, you have the right to request to access Personal Information which we hold about you and to request corrections of any errors in that data. Contact us using the contact details provided at the end of this policy to make an access or correction request.
If you have an account with us, you can access some of the personal information we collect about you. In addition, by logging into your account, you can update or correct certain information.
When you contact us to protect your Personal Information, we may require identification from you before releasing the requested information or making the correction.
10 Additional Rights for EU Residents and Citizens
For the GDPR, we are a 'data controller' of Personal Information. If you're a citizen or resident of the European Economic Area, the following rights apply to you.
You are entitled to ask us to port your Personal Information (i.e. to transfer in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format to you), to erase it, or restrict its processing. You also have rights to object to some processing that is based on our legitimate interests, such as profiling that we perform for direct marketing, and where we have asked for your consent to process your data, to withdraw this consent.
These rights are limited in some situations – for example, we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your Personal Information. In some instances, this means that we may retain some data even if you withdraw your consent.
Where we require your Personal Information to comply with legal or contractual obligations, then provision of such data is mandatory. If you do not provide it, we will not be able to manage our contractual relationship with you or meet obligations placed on us. In those cases, you must provide us with your Personal Information. Otherwise, the provision of requested Personal Information is optional.
If you have unresolved concerns, you also have the right to complain to data protection authorities. The relevant data protection authority will be the data protection authority in the country:
(a) of your habitual residence;
(b) of your place of work; or
(c) in which you consider the alleged infringement has occurred.
