- We use your personal information to fulfill your requests and serve you better. We do not share your personal details with outside third parties without your consent unless they are data processing on our behalf.

When do we collect personal information?
We collect personal information, such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, hobby or activity information, demographic information (age, gender, etc.), employment and job preferences, or other preference information, and the like, when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. Visitors may choose to submit personal information online to enter competitions, to obtain information or submit a comment, to register for a newsletter, or to place an order. We may also obtain contact lists, demographic, and other information from other sources, where you have agreed to them sharing your data with us. For the convenience of our customers and to better serve you, we combine the data. You can change your preferences about receiving offers and information from us at any time.
What do we do with your personal information?
We collect personally identifiable information to enter you in competitions and notify you of results, to e-mail you with updates and news, to respond to your questions or comments, to register you for certain features, to send you updates when job vacancies that fit your profile arise, to provide personalised content, information, and/or to send out brochures, coupons, samples, offers and other information on our products or our company. We ask visitors providing e-mail addresses to let us know if they would like further information or updates from us or our site; only those who request it will receive follow-up e-mail or other communications from us. We may also ask if you would like to receive information about other products available from members of our family of companies. Only those who expressly ask to receive such information online will get it. We also offer visitors an “opt-out” option at any time they wish to cease receiving e-mails or other information from us.
Sometimes we will make offers, coupons and information, including catalogues, available to you via mail. We may also use lists we have received from third parties or public sources (where you have agreed to them sharing your data with us), to send you this information. You may “opt-out” of receiving offline communications from our brands at any time.
We may purchase and use opt-in e-mail lists to contact potential customers. We will honour opt-out requests and ask those providing lists to give us assurances that e-mail contact information is provided only for those consumers who have expressed a desire to receive offers and information by e-mail.
Personal information is used solely by us, and our affiliates, agents or business partners who help make this site and its content and the products and services at this site, available to you in order to respond to your requests (like fulfilling online shopping orders or offering a competition or promotion), and to better serve you, consistent with this policy. Data may be shared or combined between current or future affiliates, subsidiaries or other related entities of our company to enhance efficiency and minimise duplication of contacts with you. In addition, we may occasionally ask you if we may share information with other trusted third parties. We will let you know at the time the information is collected if such third-party sharing is anticipated, will identify the types of businesses at the area of collection, will describe the information we will share (like your mail or e-mail address) and will only share data if you agree. We will share personal data only with those who have agreed to follow careful policies.
What are cookies?
Visitors to our sites use different web browsers and different computers. To make your visits as easy as possible with the technology you use, we automatically keep track of the type of browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox) and operating system (e.g., Windows, Mac) used by a visitor, and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider. We also track the total number of visitors to our site in an aggregate form to allow us to update and improve our site; personally identifiable information is not extracted in this process. This data tells us if more visitors prefer certain features or areas to others, which helps us keep our site fresh and interesting to the majority of our visitors.
What if you don’t want cookies?
If you don’t want cookies, you can set your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent or turn off all cookies through your browser (e.g., Internet Explorer or Firefox). (Check your browser HELP menu to learn the correct way to change or update your cookies.) If you disable cookies, you may be unable to access some of the features noted above.
What about message boards, or other interactive forums?
We may offer message or bulletin boards, or interactive areas where visitors may post comments or information for our visitors’ enjoyment. If there is a bulletin or message board, or other interactive areas where personal information may be posted at this site, be sure to check our rules before entering, as you will be bound by them as well as our General Terms and Conditions. As you know, anything you post online is available for the world to see. We make no representations and undertake no obligations as to information you voluntarily post.
Is credit card / transaction information secure?
We care about the safety and security of your transaction. We use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to communicate with your browser software when you order from us online and thereby provide us with credit card or similar information. SSL is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept your credit card / transaction and order information that you send us when you submit your online order. Otherwise, the transmission of information to and from us is not encrypted or secure. We take precautions to safeguard your credit card data in our internal systems.
What do we do to safeguard personal information?
We have instituted safeguards to check that our internal procedures meet our high policy standards. We also use our best efforts to be sure that third parties who work with us as our agents to make this site and its contents available to you, and to fulfill your orders and requests, agree to protect personal information that they must access in order to serve our site and our visitors, and honour your preferences about contacts you receive.
What about links to other web sites?
What else do you need to know?
We reserve the right to use or disclose any personal information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to conduct investigations of consumer complaints or possible breaches of law, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfil your requests, or to cooperate in any legal investigation.
