The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) sets out 13 Australian Privacy Principles (“APPs”). The APPs can be found on the website of the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner at https://www.oaic.gov.au.
Collection and Use of Information
Arlec collects personal information that is necessary for connection with our dealings with you. Wherever practicable and 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.
Arlec may share this information with third parties (including related parties and overseas parties) that may be involved in transacting an order, such as the financial institution that issued your credit card, carriers to provide delivery of Arlec goods, and also to collect the monies owing from you for orders placed on Arlec.
Arlec 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 Arlec’s research, planning, website development, security, and risk management;
- Where a third party acquires or wishes to acquire an interest in Arlec or the business of Arlec; or
- To the extent required or authorised by law to do so.
By providing us your 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 is collected, Arlec 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), Arlec does not 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 Arlec’s costs of providing the information to you unless the request is solely to correct personal information about you which Arlec holds.
References to any law are references to that law as amended, consolidated, supplemented, or replaced from time to time.
