Personal information we collect
The types of personal information that we may collect from you and use from time to time includes:
- your name;
- your address;
- your telephone number;
- your e-mail address;
- your date of birth;
- information about your use of our website and our services; and
- other information that could identify you.
We collect personal information in a number of ways, for example:
- when you enter various contests that we conduct;
- when you visit our website or one of our shops (including shops operated by our independent franchisees) for an estimate or to use our services;
- when you contact us to ask questions.
We also collect what can be called “anonymous/aggregated” information, which may not necessarily constitute personal information. We collect such information via the following methods:
Browser information (i.e. the URL of the web page you were just on, the IP address of the computer you are using, your domain type and your browser version). Browser information is automatically recorded as part of transmitting information over the Internet. We may use it to help us display information in the best format for you.
“Clickstream” Data. During your visit to our site, we may record choices you have made and use this to provide more customized content or advertising. The data does not identify you and is not retained after your visit. This is sometimes called “clickstream” data. If we do market research studies or polls in any area that will only be reported in aggregate, this will be indicated.
Why do we collect your personal information
We may collect and use your personal information for one or more of the following purposes:
- to provide product, service or any other information you requested;
- to communicate with you;
- to record your use of our services and interaction with us;
- to evaluate the performance of our shops; or
- to send you information about our products and services and special offers that may be of interest to you.
Storage of your information
Secure servers located in Australia, Canada or another jurisdiction of similar technology and security levels will store your personal information. Whilst we cannot always guarantee the security of your personal information, we will use accepted procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Control of your information
You always have the option to instruct us not to use your personal information. You can also request a copy of your personal information that we hold. See “Contact us” below to provide us with your current instructions regarding your personal information.
Visiting a third party website via a link from our own website
Our policy regarding sharing of information
Our policy is simple: we never sell or rent your personal information to any third parties under any circumstances (though we may transfer it to our international headquarters since some of the information we may provide you about our products, services and special offers that may be of interest to you are sometimes sent via our international headquarters). Our international headquarters is in Canada, but our activities and operations are global, meaning we may share your personal information with a related party in another country. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that any overseas entities abide by this policy.
Our policy toward children
Our website is not directed to persons under 18 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from persons under 18. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personal information without their consent, he or she should contact us at [email protected]. If we become aware that a person under 18 years of age has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information from our files.
