COMMITTED TO YOUR PRIVACY
We take our responsibilities under the Act seriously. We recognise the importance of the personal data entrusted to us and believe that it is our responsibility to properly manage, protect and process your personal data.
Please take a moment to read our Policy so that you know and understand the purposes for which we collect, use and disclose your personal data.
This Policy supplements but does not supersede nor replace any consents you may have previously provided to us in respect of your personal data, and your consents herein are additional to any rights which any of us may have at law to collect, use and/or disclose your personal data.
If you have any questions or concerns about this Policy or our privacy practices, we welcome you to contact us by email at email@example.com.
This Policy applies to the collection, holding, processing, use and/or transfer of your personal data under the Act.
As a general principle, you will provide us with your Personal Information entirely voluntarily; there are generally no detrimental effects for you if you choose not to consent or to provide Personal Information. There are, however, circumstances in which we cannot take action without certain of your Personal Information, for example because this Personal Information is required to process your Service instructions or Product orders, provide you with access to a blog or newsletter or to carry out a legally required compliance screening. In these cases, it will unfortunately not be possible for us to provide you with what you request without the relevant Personal Information and we will endeavor to notify you accordingly.
We will not be liable to you for the disclosure of Personal Information if, as shown by clear and convincing evidence, the Personal Information: (a) is generally known to the public at the time of disclosure by you; or (b) becomes generally known to the public through no fault of ours; or (c) was lawfully in our possession prior to you disclosing such Personal Information; or (d) is subject to applicable laws or a valid court order requiring disclosure of such Personal Information.

We will not be responsible for any losses arising from any inaccurate Personal Information that you provide to us.
Under the Act, your Personal Information will be deleted when it is no longer reasonably required for the permitted purposes or you withdraw your consent (where applicable) and we are not legally required or otherwise permitted to continue storing such data. We will, in particular, retain your Personal Information where required for us to assert or defend against legal claims until the end of the relevant retention period or until the claims in question have been settled.
4. PRIVACY SECURITY
In order to maintain the security of your Personal Information under the Act, we have taken reasonable methods to prevent unauthorised access and maintain accuracy of all Personal Information collected by our website.

We shall endeavour to prevent the introduction of malware, malicious code, and viruses (“Viruses”) to our Website and our users.
