Obviously, if you are only contacting us for information, prices, or browsing the front pages of our websites, we probably don’t need to collect personal information from you.
We try to only collect your personal information from you with your consent. When you register for one of our websites, part of the registration agreement is that you consent to us collecting personal information about you. We may also collect additional personal information about you when you make purchases through our websites, order listings in our business directories, showcase your products on our websites or advertise on our websites.
Where we have to collect personal information about you from another person, it will only be in circumstances where the information is needed for our business relationship with you.
In some circumstances, if we are not able to collect your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the goods or services you require. For example: if you do not provide your details in our online registration forms, you will not be able to register and then you will not be able to access our websites or order goods from us online.
We use your information to provide you with the goods and services that you request from us.
We may also use your information to make you aware of other goods or services that may be of interest to you, to send you newsletters and surveys. If you do not wish to receive this information, you can ask that your name be removed from our marketing mailing list. However this may result in your registration for our websites being cancelled, as per the registration agreement. If any other use is to be made of your personal information, we will tell you at the time of collecting the information.
We sometimes hire vendor companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering items, sending postal mail, providing technical support, and processing registrations. We provide those companies only the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
We may also use and disclose your personal information in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange or other disposition (whether of assets, stock or otherwise) of all or a portion of a business of Aloe Unique Australia and/or its subsidiaries.
We will not sell your personal information to marketing companies or unrelated companies without your consent. We may also sell statistical information about registrants and users of our websites, provided that such information has been stripped of personal information that could be used to identify you.
The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) also contains a number of statutory circumstances in which we may collect, use and disclose your personal information.
We take steps to ensure that the personal information we collect is accurate, up to date and complete. These steps include maintaining and updating personal information when we are advised by individuals that their personal information has changed, and at other times as necessary.
You can play an important part in helping us to maintain data quality, by:
Privacy and data security go together at Aloe Unique Australia. That is why we take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is protected against unauthorised access. We have also put in place security systems on our websites to try to prevent your personal information from getting into the wrong hands.
It is hard to guarantee total security on the Internet. You should be aware that other companies that we deal with and other websites that you can link to from our websites may not have the same security measures that we have. They operate under their own privacy and security policies and procedures and we are unable to make any guarantees of the security of your personal information if you make it available to them.
Our employees and contractors are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us.
We will delete or de-identify your personal information when we no longer require it. If you make purchases through our website we will not retain your credit card information for longer than we require to process your payment.
We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. Some of the ways we do this are:
Much of the personal information that we will collect about you will be automatically harvested as you interact with our website. Because of the manner in which such information is recorded and stored, you may not be able to access such information.
Cookies are data that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies, which are industry standard and are used by most websites, including those operated by us, can facilitate a user’s ongoing access to and use of a website. They allow us to customise the website to your needs.
Our website might provide you with links to other websites. These linked websites are not under our control and we cannot accept responsibility for the conduct of companies linked to our websites. Before disclosing your personal information on any other website, we advise you to examine the terms and conditions of that website and its privacy statement.
