Privacy Policy

 

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Garden Tools Australia we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

 

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Garden Tools Australia collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Garden Tools Australia’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Garden Tools Australia’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Garden Tools Australia may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Garden Tools Australia also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Garden Tools Australia does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Garden Tools Australia’s websites choose to interact with Garden Tools Australia in ways that require Garden Tools Australia to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Garden Tools Australia gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Garden Tools Australia collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Garden Tools Australia. Garden Tools Australia does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
Garden Tools Australia may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Garden Tools Australia may monitor the most popular searches. Garden Tools Australia may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Garden Tools Australia discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that
(i) need to know that information in order to process it on Garden Tools Australia’s behalf or to provide services available at Garden Tools Australia’s websites, and
(ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using our websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Garden Tools Australia discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Garden Tools Australia believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Garden Tools Australia, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of our website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Garden Tools Australia and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Garden Tools Australia takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Garden Tools Australia uses cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of our website, and their website access preferences. Garden Tools Australia visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using our websites, with the drawback that certain features of Garden Tools Australia’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads
Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognise your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Garden Tools Australia and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Recording of calls
Garden Tools Australia records all calls to and from the company for training purposes only.

Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Garden Tools Australia may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in our sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
