This statement sets out Organic Babe's (A.B.N. 19473082068) policies relating to your personal information.
Please note that separate policies apply to the use of sites that are available through Organic Babe but are not operated by Organic Babe directly.
1. Your personal information is important to us
Organic Babe recognises that your privacy is very important to you and that you have a right to control your personal information. We know that providing personal information is an act of trust and we take that seriously. Unless you give us explicit consent to act otherwise, the following policies will govern how Organic Babe handles your personal information and safeguards your privacy.
2. Organic Babe is committed to the best-practice privacy standards
Organic Babe is committed to complying with the voluntary National Principles for the Fair Handling of Personal Information developed by the Australian Federal Privacy Commissioner in 1998 [see the Australian Privacy Commissioner's website]. Organic Babe will comply with any laws introduced to strengthen protections for consumers' privacy.
3. Collecting information about you
Organic Babe will not collect or monitor any personal information about you without your consent unless we believe it is necessary:
You may provide Organic Babe with information directly, such as through subscribing to email lists or identifying yourself when using particular services. The amount of information we collect about you depends on how you use the website.
The only personal information we collect is what you tell us about yourself, for example by subscribing to mailing lists, and entering competitions.
Organic Babe intends to introduce a membership system that will give you the option of enjoying enhanced services on our website. Again, any changes in how we use your personal information will only occur with your consent.
Any further collection of your personal information than that explained above will only occur with consent from you. Organic Babe only collects information from your use of our website and not from other organisations.
Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user's browser. The cookies simply operate as a unique identifier which help us to know what our customers find interesting and useful on our website, almost like a continuing questionnaire. We do not link this information back to other information that you have provided to us. Organic Babe does not store any information inside cookies.
5. Using and disclosing your personal information
Organic Babe will not use or disclose any information about you without your consent, or access your communications on our websites, unless:
Organic Babe and its affiliates recognise the trust you place in us when you give us personal information. In order to operate the website or deliver a service we may sometimes share your personal information with an affiliate. We will not otherwise disclose your personal information to other companies without your explicit consent.
6. "Spam" (promotional email)
We will not send you "spam" (advertising information) without first asking you whether you wish to have promotional information sent to you. If you are receiving promotional information about Organic Babe or its affiliates and do not wish to receive this information any longer, you may remove your name from a list by visiting the website from which the communication was sent and following the instructions on how to withdraw your information from that site.
To be removed from Organic Babe's mailing list, under the mailing list section of the website, simply enter your email address, select "Unsubscribe" and click "Go" to be removed from our mailing list. Please allow seven days for this request to be processed.
7. Storage and security of your personal information
Organic Babe will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information which we hold about you, and to keep this information accurate and up to date. Your information is stored on secure servers.
In addition, our employees and data processors are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by Organic Babe. However, Organic Babe will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information.
You can also play an important role in keeping your personal information secure, by maintaining the confidentiality of any password and accounts used on the Organic Babe website. Please notify us immediately if there is any unauthorised use of your account by any other Internet user or any other breach of security.
8. Organic Babe and links to other websites
Organic Babe provides links to websites outside of the Organic Babe website. These linked sites are not under the control of Organic Babe, and we are not responsible for the conduct of companies linked to our website. Before disclosing your personal information on any other website, we advise you to examine the terms and conditions of using their websites.
