The Australian Privacy Principles of the Privacy Act 1988 (as amended by the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012) are set out 10 Australian Privacy Principles (“APPs”).
(The APPs can be found on the website of the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner at http://www.oaic.gov.au/)
SPC respects an individual’s right to personal privacy and is committed to complying with the APPs.
Collection and Use of Information
SPC collects personal information that is necessary in connection with our dealings with you. Where practicable and where required by the APPs, you will be notified of any special purpose for which the personal information is being collected at or before the time of collection.
SPC may share this information with third parties (including overseas parties where necessary such as payment systems) that may be involved in transacting an order, such as the financial institution that issued your credit card, carriers to provide delivery of SPC goods and also to collect the monies owing from you for orders placed on SPC.
SPC may also use the information:
to send you news, invitations, information about our activities and general promotional materials;
to maintain our relationship with you;
for purposes related to SPC’s research, planning, website development, security and risk management;
where a third party acquires or wishes to acquire an interest in SPC or the business of SPC; or
to the extent required or authorised by law to do so.
By providing us personal information, you warrant that you are authorised to provide such information and that the information is, to the best of your knowledge, current and accurate.
Once any personal information comes into our possession, SPC will take reasonable steps to protect that information from unauthorised access, loss, misuse, modification or disclosure. Where your personal information is provided to us electronically (including over the internet) SPC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit and you do so at your own risk.
Access to information
A reasonable access fee may be charged to cover SPC’s costs of providing the information to you unless the request is solely to correct personal information about you which SPC holds (in which case no access fee will apply).
References to any law are references to that law as amended, consolidated, supplemented or replaced from time to time.
