The type of personal information we collect
Personal information given by you to us
We collect the personal information you give us in a number of ways such as online, by email, post, or over the phone. Personal information such as your username and password, your name, your mailing address, email address, and phone number will be collected when you first register with us. Financial information such as your credit card number and billing address is collected so we can process transactions and provide you with products and services. You may always choose not to provide personal information, but if you so choose, products will not be available to you.
Information automatically collected
When you visit this site, other kinds of information may also be collected automatically as part of this site’s operation. This includes your IP address, browser type and language, and access times. We may also collect navigational information, including information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with the site. We may combine your visit and navigational information with personal information that you provide.
We use “cookies” to enable you to sign in to our services and to help personalise your online experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive. Cookies contain information, including personal information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. The information that cookies collect includes the date and time of your visit, your registration information, and your navigational and purchase history. Cookies offer you many conveniences. They allow us to identify registered users when they return to the site so that they can review their previous invoices. Cookies also save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of our sites and services that depend on cookies.
Use of Your Personal Information
We use the personal information you have given us for purposes which are consistent with the reason you provided the personal information, or for a directly related purpose. Such purposes for which we may use your personal information include:
- doing business with you so that you can purchase our goods
- effectively communicating with you;
- operating and improving our website;
- providing customer service;
- delivering goods to you;
- performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products and services; and
- displaying content that is customised to your interests and preferences.
We may also use your personal information where you have consented to the use, either expressly or by implication.
Sharing of Your Personal Information
We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information to or with any third parties. We may disclose your personal information to external service providers in the circumstances discussed below. We may share your personal information with external service providers who perform services on our behalf. For example, we may hire other companies to handle the processing of payments, to provide data storage, to host websites, to fulfil orders and shipments, to assist in direct marketing, to conduct audits, etc. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to provide the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
Some of these service providers may be overseas such as in the USA. We will take such steps as are reasonable to make sure they do not breach the privacy principles that govern our collection of your personal information. We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or protect the rights, property or safety of The Style Cantina, employees, customers, or the public.
We may send you surveys or marketing communications to inform you of new products or services or other information that may be of interest. If you do not want to receive direct marketing communications from either us or a third party, it is easy to opt out. You can follow the “unsubscribe” instructions included within each email communication or you can send us an email request at firstname.lastname@example.org Please keep in mind that, if you choose not to receive marketing communications, you will continue to receive transactional or account communications.
How To Manage Your Personal Information
Where your information is stored
Personal information that we collect may be stored and processed in Australia and/or overseas countries. We take all reasonable steps to protect personal information no matter what country it is stored in. However, information collected may be retained, and may be stored, processed, accessed, and used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those in Australia. When you use this site or give us the personal information requested, you consent to any such transfer, processing and storage of personal information outside of Australia.
Security of Your Personal Information
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow accepted industry standards to help protect your personal information. For instance, when you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security and any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.
If a password is used to protect your account and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential and to change it if you think it has been compromised. The Style Cantina recommends that you change your password when you first log in and then on a regular basis to maintain its security.
We do not intend to solicit or collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18, you should not use or enter information on this site.
We may link to websites, including those of our third-party content providers and social media sites. Our website may contain social media features such as Facebook and Instagram “Like” buttons. These features may collect information about your device’s IP address, set cookies or link you to a social media website where you may post personal information. The sites of our third-party providers and social media sites may have different privacy policies and practices from those disclosed here. We assume no responsibility for the policies or practices of such sites and encourage you to become acquainted with them prior to use.
