We are committed to protecting the Personal Information we collect from you when you use our Site. The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (‘Privacy Act’), and the Australian Privacy Principles (‘APP’) govern the way in which we manage your Personal Information. This Policy sets out how we collect, use, disclose, and otherwise manage Personal Information about you.
We will not share or use your Personal Information, except as described in this Policy or unless you have otherwise provided us with your consent to do so.

Types of Information Collected We may collect and hold Personal Information about you, namely, information that can identify you and is relevant to providing you with the services you are seeking. This can include:
- Your name
- Contact details (including address, email address, phone number)
- Information about how you use our products and services.
We never hold your financial information (such as credit card or bank account numbers).
This is not exhaustive. Occasionally, we may need additional information about you to deliver our products or services.
If you provide us with Personal Information about other individuals, we rely on you to inform them of this action and of this policy.
Purpose of Collection The type of Personal Information we gather depends on your interaction with us. We usually collect it for:
- Delivering products to you or someone you know;
- Issuing tax invoices;
- Providing you with information about other services from us or affiliated organisations;
- Streamlining our internal operations, which includes meeting legal requirements;
- Enhancing our services based on customer feedback.
Method of Collection We typically gather Personal Information directly from you using standard forms (such as agreements, queries, Site submissions, or emails). However, in certain situations, we might collect information from:
- Third parties like our affiliated entities, partners, or your representatives;
- Public sources;
- Records of your service usage;
- Third parties listed in the 'Use and Disclosure' section.
If information is gathered indirectly, we'll notify you accordingly.
Withholding or giving inaccurate Personal Information might prevent us from offering our products or services effectively.
Social Media and External Links Connecting with us through platforms like TikTok, LinkedIn, or Instagram might expose your information publicly. Ensure you are familiar with their privacy policies. External links on our site also have their own privacy policies; we recommend reviewing them before sharing your Personal Information.
Use and Disclosure Your Personal Information is mainly used for the purposes it was collected. We may occasionally share it with:
- Third-party product or service providers aiding our operations;
- Affiliated entities for marketing purposes;
- Potential purchasers if our business assets are being sold;

It's unlikely we'll disclose your information overseas unless legally permitted.
Disclosure to Overseas Recipients Although rare, we might share your data with overseas entities like:
- E-commerce platforms such as Shopify;
- Payment platforms like Stripe and PayPal;
- Marketing tools such as Klaviyo, SMS, and Google Analytics;
- Delivery services like StarShippit and Australia Post.
Direct Marketing We, our affiliates, or business partners might use your information to market products, services, or offers we believe you'd find interesting. This could be done via various methods like email, SMS/MMS, or social media. You can opt out of these at any time.
How We Secure Your Personal Information Your Personal Information's security is of utmost importance to us.
Overseas Transfer of Personal Information
The Personal Information we collect may be:
- Transferred to and stored at a destination outside of Australia.
- Processed by staff operating outside of Australia, affiliated either with us or one of our partners.
We commit to taking all reasonable measures to ensure these overseas entities handle your Personal Information in accordance with the Act and the APPs. When you provide your Personal Information or allow us to collect it, you explicitly consent to its disclosure to specific overseas recipients, particularly detailed under the section 'Shopify Data Storage'. If you have reservations about your Personal Information being disclosed overseas, please contact us prior to sharing your information.
E-commerce Transaction Security
To ensure the security of your transactions, we utilise SSL encryption when you place an order or access your account. SSL is among the most secure encryption technologies available.
If your Personal Information is no longer needed, we will securely destroy or de-identify it, unless we are legally obliged or ordered by a court to retain it.

Our website is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide the online e-commerce platform that enables us to sell our products and services. Your data is stored through Shopify's databases and application.

Handling Data from International Visitors
Though an Australian company, we might share your data with overseas recipients. If you access our site from outside Australia, please understand your data will be processed and stored here, where privacy laws might differ from your home jurisdiction.
