We will only collect, store and use your personal information for specific purposes. We use your personal information to support and enhance our relationship with you.

Consent

Your use of our websiteand any disclosure of personal information via the website signifies your consent to us collecting and using personal information about you in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Information about you

When a customer or partner (this is what we call our sellers) registers with us, we ask for information such as your name, e-mail address, address, and contact details, and then we keep a record of this information. All this is necessary so that we can recognise you as a registered customer, pass on the correct details with your order, and ensure that you are happy with the service you receive. We keep a record of any purchase you make from any of our partners’ stores via our website. This means both they and (in some instances) we can help to deal more quickly with any queries or problems you may have, and also so we can ensure that any information that we send to you is relevant.

We keep a record of any e-mail correspondence you send us, so we can track any problems or concerns you've had with any of the partners' stores on our website.

We'll also ask you questions at registration, and from time to time by email, that will give us information that will be used to improve your shopping experience. You do not have to answer these questions, but if you do we can communicate with you in a more relevant way.

If you would like to revise the information you have provided to us, or feel that what we currently have on record is incorrect, you may update the information by contacting us at[https://www.notinshops.com.au/contacts].

How we use your personal data

All the information we collect via our website or through correspondence with you is used to operate and improve the service we offer you and to personalise our service. We are committed to using your personal information only for:

  • passing on your orders to your chosen supplier so they can supply goods and services to you and for customer administration.
  • planning and managing our business activities, including analysis of customer shopping habits, product and style preferences.
  • technical administration of our website.
  • research.
  • providing you with information about the services we offer.
  • letting you know about offers, news and products from partner stores on our website.
  • occasionally letting you know about offers from other companies who we believe may interest you, either by sending out the information ourselves to you directly, or by providing certain details to other companies so they may contact you directly.
  • to verify details of your payment method or credit card account.

During your registration process you are given the opportunity to select some of the ways in which we may use your details.

The following are all circumstances in which we may share some of your data with others:

  • in the unlikely event that our business assets are ever sold to or purchased by another company (our data records are part of our business). You will receive notice of any such event and we will use our reasonable endeavours to ensure that the new combined entity will follow the practices disclosed in this Privacy Policy.
  • if we are requested by the police or a regulatory or government authority investigating illegal activities to provide information concerning your activities whilst using the network we shall do so.

Managing your orders

We may monitor and review communications between you and our partners, solely for the purposes of ensuring that your orders are managed appropriately by our partners and our customer service team, and in accordance with the terms and conditions that we have in place with our partners.

Cookies

Cookies are small text files stored on your web browser containing information which is passed between your browser and the web server. Cookies cannot read or interfere with other information saved on your hard drive. Our website (in common with most other shopping websites) will not work without cookies.

We use cookies for various reasons, including remembering who you are and which products you have added to your basket.

Most computers are set up to automatically accept cookies. However, you can reset your browser settings to refuse cookies, or alert you when a cookie is being sent so you can choose whether or not to accept it.

In addition to cookies to ensure that ourwebsite functions as it should, you may also find that our website uses other common cookies.

Data over the internet

The internet is a global network, so it is possible for your data to travel internationally, which may include places outside Australia. If you visit or shop on our website, then you agree and authorise us to process data in this way.

How we protect information

You acknowledge that the internet is not a wholly secure medium for communication and, accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you send to us (or we send to you) via the internet. We are not responsible for any damages which you, or others, may suffer as a result of the loss of confidentiality of such information.

We take every precaution to protect your information. To this end all personal information stored by us is kept on a server in a secure environment. Only employees, our partners and any sub-contractors who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.

How you can help us protect your information

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online in non-protected environments - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Also remember to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or internet café. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

If you have questions about your personal data or our privacy policy, please contact us at [https://www.notinshops.com.au/contacts], or email us at [info@notinshops.com.au

How to unsubscribe

If you no longer wish to receive any further email messages, post or other communications from us or you no longer wish to be contacted by other companies who you permitted us to provide your details to then please contact us at [https://www.notinshops.com.au/contacts] or change your account settings accordingly.

Changes to privacy policy

We reserve the right to change our privacy policy, whilst of course keeping it within all relevant legislation and guidelines. We will do all we can to ensure that these pages show the most up to date information at all times, and may notify you of such changes by uploading the revised privacy policy on our website.

Our partners' privacy policies

Our partners are bound by the same legislation as us, and if they gather or keep your information, they must give you all relevant information about their policy, as well as giving you the opportunity to opt in or out of certain ways in which they might use that information.

However, we are not responsible and do not warrant or guarantee that the privacy policies, of any partner, or any other companies that your personal information is passed to in accordance with this Privacy Policy, comply with data protection legislation. We are not responsible for any damages which you or others may suffer as a result of the loss of confidentiality of such information. When you place an order with any of our partners, your personal details that you submit at registration must by necessity be forwarded along with the order, so you will need to verify their privacy policy directly with them if you wish.
