This Privacy Statement explains our policy for dealing with personal information that we collect.
Where appropriate we will handle personal information relying on the employer exemption relating to employee records and the related bodies corporate exemption in the Privacy Act.

We collect personal information in a number of ways, including:
We usually collect personal information such as your name, address, email address, telephone number and financial details. As a general rule we do not collect sensitive information. However, if we do, it will usually be for the purposes of providing our goods and services and, where the law requires us to do so, we will seek your consent to collect it.
We may use your information to provide our services to you, to fulfil administrative functions associated with these services (for example processing payments).
We may also use your contact information to notify you of important changes to our online shopping facility or to inform you of special promotions which may be of interest to you. Before we do so, we will provide you with an opportunity to give us permission to send you marketing or promotional material via an opt-in mechanism. That is, we will send you such material only if you elect to receive it or if it is provided to you in response to your request. You may also notify us at any time that you do not wish to receive marketing or promotional material by contacting us.

We may disclose your information to market research organisations. The information we disclose to market research organisations relates to sales, trading patterns and online navigation techniques and is provided in aggregated form.
