When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.
When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
With your permission you may join our mail list, meaning that we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.
How Do You Get My Consent?
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like joining our mail list, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
Inferred Consent for General Follow-Up
When you purchase from our website you are deemed to provide ‘inferred consent’ that we may email you in the future as part of following up our customers – to check customers are happy with their purchase, to ask for customer feedback, to follow-up incomplete purchases and other general follow-up content. Inferred consent is described by the Department of Internal Affairs as “when the person you wish to contact has not directly instructed you to send them a message, but it is still clear that there is a reasonable expectation that messages will be sent.”
The follow-up messages as described above aren’t part of our ‘marketing’ mail list. Because of this, and also because purchasing from our website suggests it is reasonable to expect that some ongoing follow-up emails may occur, follow-up messages, therefore, might not contain an ‘unsubscribe’ link in them. Though, you may manually request not to be contacted for follow-up by letting us know. We are required by law to have taken steps to ensure you won’t be sent future follow-up emails within 5 working days.
How Do I Withdraw My Consent?
If after you opt-in to our mail list, you change your mind, then you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us. We are required by law to remove you from any email lists within 5 working days.
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Trade.
