Your privacy IS IMPORTANT
WHO ARE 'WE'?
When we talk about “we” (or “our” or “us”), we mean Empowered Women Enterprises Pty Ltd ACN 651 963 674 trading as WOOM, and all its wholly owned subsidiaries.
WHAT IS PERSONAL DATA?
When we talk about personal information, we mean information (such as an address or phone number) or an opinion about an individual. That individual may either be identified, that is, we know who they are, or reasonably identifiable, which means that we can work out who they are from other information that we have. It doesn’t matter whether or not the information or opinion is actually true or whether or not it is in writing.
Remember, the basic idea is that, if an organisation such as WOOM collects information that is about you, and that organisation is able to link that information to you, then it will be your personal information.
Personal data is any data that could directly or indirectly identify you – this includes information like your name, address, telephone number and your email address but in some cases it may include less obviously identifying information, like your IP Address (see below).
WHAT DATA DO WE COLLECT?
When you visit woomwomen.com.au or shop with us online, we collect information about you and your use of our website. We treat this information as falling into three categories: Customer Information, Usage Data and your IP Address.
Customer Information is the information you explicitly provide to us when you make an online purchase or sign up to receive our newsletters, including your:
- Email address
- Phone number
- Shipping and/or billing address
- Payment information
Usage Data is general information about how you interact with our website, such as:
- which pages you visited on our website
- how you came to the website (for example, by clicking on a link in a newsletter or from an advertisement)
- which buttons or links you clicked
- whether you have been to the website before
Whenever you visit a website (including ours), the computer from which the web pages are served (i.e. our web server) needs to know your computer’s public network address so it can send the requested pages to your browser. The public network address associated with your computer is called its “public IP Address” and is sent automatically each time you access any Internet website. From a computer’s IP Address, it is usually possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer but often not the specific computer and if multiple people use the computer not the specific user (although if your IP Address is unique to you and is published somewhere or if you later identify yourself while using the same IP Address, it is possible that IP Address could identify you).
HOW WE COLLECT DATA
We collect drive information using he following technologies:
- “COOKIES” ARE DATA FILES THAT ARE PLACED ON YOUR DEVICE OR COMPUTER AND OFTEN INCLUDE AN ANONYMOUS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT COOKIES, AND HOW TO DISABLE COOKIES, VISIT HTTP://WWW.ALLABOUTCOOKIES.ORG.
- “LOG FILES” TRACK ACTIONS OCCURRING ON THE SITE, AND COLLECT DATA INCLUDING YOUR IP ADDRESS, BROWSER TYPE, INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER, REFERRING/EXIT PAGES, AND DATE/TIME STAMPS.
- “WEB BEACONS,” “TAGS,” AND “PIXELS” ARE ELECTRONIC FILES USED TO RECORD INFORMATION ABOUT HOW YOU BROWSE THE SITE.
Information you provide to us directly: When you shop with us online, we will ask you to provide personal data (such as your name and address) so we can fill your order. We may also ask you to provide personal data when you sign up for a newsletter, respond to a job application or an offer, join us on social media, take part in surveys or contact us for help. If you don’t want to provide personal data, you don’t have to, but it might limit your ability to do certain things on the website.
Information we collect automatically: When you visit woomwomen.com.au or shop with us online, we collect some information about you automatically, including Usage Data.
HOW WE USE DATA
Where we collect your personal data, we’ll only process it:
- to fill orders placed by you, or
- where we have legitimate interests to process the personal data and our interests are not overridden by your rights, or
- in accordance with a legal obligation, or
- where we have your explicit consent.
The main reason we use your personal data is to fill orders and to manage our relationship with you (for example, dealing with questions about products, returns and warranty claims).
We also use personal data for other purposes, including:
- To communicate with you via SMS and Email: this may include providing you with information you’ve requested or that we’re required to provide to you, that relates to changes to our website or policies, marketing communications in accordance with your preferences or to invite you to provide feedback or to take part in research we are conducting.
- To support you: this may include dealing with any questions you have about our products, dealing with warranty claims or any issues relating to our goods or services.
- To improve our website: we use Usage Data to help us understand the online behaviour of our customers, which helps us to focus our marketing activities and improve the services we provide on the website. Using web analytics on our website enables us to measure, collect, analyse and report on Usage Data for the purposes of understanding and optimising customers’ experiences on our website. We try to ensure that all Usage Data is anonymised (i.e. not referable to a specific person) unless we have your consent.
- Geographical location information contained in Usage Data also enables us to tailor your experience on our website by displaying different content based on your location, such as providing content in your preferred language (where possible), showing local currency and pricing, and showing relevant advertising. Again, geographical location information is anonymised unless we have your consent.
- To protect you: we use Customer Information and your IP Address to detect and prevent fraudulent activity when you want to make a purchase from us.
- To analyse, aggregate and report: we may use the personal data we collect about you and other users of our website to produce aggregated and anonymised analytics and reports, which we may share with third parties.
HOW WE CAN SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA (AND HOW WE DON'T)
Your personal data is never disclosed to third parties for remarketing or retargeting purposes. WOOM never sells its email lists or customer information.
There will be times when we need to share your personal data with third parties.
We will only disclose your personal data to:
- handle payments securely (PayPal Inc and AfterPay)
- distribute direct marketing materials that you have consented to receive
- connect to social networks (for example, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn)
- pay commission to affiliates
- target advertising (for example, Google, Facebook)
- protect you and us against fraud
There also may be times when we are legally required to disclose personal data, such as to regulators, law enforcement bodies, government agencies, courts or other third parties where we think it’s necessary to comply with applicable laws and regulations, or to exercise our legal rights. Where possible and appropriate, we will notify you of this kind of disclosure.
We only share your Customer Information with third parties where it is either necessary to enable online transactions (such as PayPal) or where you have consented to receive direct marketing material (such as our newsletter ).
