The Dough Co (TDC) is committed to protecting Personal Information shared with us when you use our website or purchase products.
When we handle your information, we will act in compliance with the Australian Privacy Principles (AAPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act).
2. What Personal Information does TDC collect?
Please note that any reference to ‘Personal Information’ refers to the definition of Personal Information set out in the Privacy Act. This definition also includes Sensitive Information.
Personal Information encompasses your name, address, email address, phone number, location information from a mobile device and other information which you may choose to provide which relates to you personally.
3. Why does TDC collect Personal Information and how is it used?
TDC collects Personal Information for the purpose of:
- processing orders;
- providing customer service; and
- engaging with customers (including but not limited to email subscriptions, surveys, competitions etc).
We may also use your information to make you aware of new and additional products, services and opportunities available to you. Personal Information may further be used to improve our products and services to better cater to your needs.
4. How is the information secured?
TDC will endeavour to take reasonable measures to securely store all personal information whether in electronic or physical form. Your information will be stored in an electronic database that requires passwords and logins to gain access. This helps protect your information from unauthorised access, misuse, loss, modification or disclosure.
When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card details) on our website, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). When credit card details are collected, we simply pass them on in order to be processed as required. We never permanently store complete credit card details. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. Who does TDC share this information with?
TDC will not, under any circumstance, sell your Personal Information to any third party for their own purposes. You will also never receive marketing from other companies or organisations as a result of giving your details to us.
However, TDC may need to share your information with data hosting providers or service providers who host our platform or assist us in delivering our services. These providers will only act under our instruction and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third parties comply with the Use and Disclosure requirements of the Privacy Act.
We may disclose your personal information to any of our employees, officers, insurers, professional advisers, agents, suppliers or subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy. Personal information is only supplied to a third party when it is required for the delivery of our services.
We may also be legally required to disclose information shared with us. In this situation, we will comply with the request. For example, we may be asked to share Personal Information with law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detection of a crime.
6. How can I update and/or access my personal information?
TDC is committed to holding up-to-date and accurate information. If you wish to update your personal information, please email the Privacy Officer at email@example.com.
If you wish to access Personal Information held about yourself, you may do so by contacting the Privacy Officer via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that in accordance with the Privacy Act, TDC may refuse access to Personal Information in a number of circumstances.
