What personal information do we collect
When we collect personal information from
an individual, we will ensure that we do so in a fair manner
and that we let the individual know where and how to contact
our organisation. We will only collect information that is
necessary for one or more of our functions or activities.
So that we can provide services to you, we may ask for personal
details such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail
address. Some examples of where we may need these details
are establishment of a trading account, delivery of products
and services, or competitions. Privacy law requires us to
collect personal information about you only from you if it
is reasonable and practical to do so.
Our company takes measures to ensure your personal information
is protected from unauthorised access, loss, misuse, disclosure
or alteration. We also take measures to destroy or permanently
de-identify personal information when it is no longer required.
The types of measures we take vary with the type of information,
and how it is collected and stored.
Where an individual chooses not to provide requested information,
we will advise that individual of what impact this non-disclosure
may have. For example, withholding certain information may
limit our ability to market and deliver products or services
How is you Personal Information used?

example, for a credit card transaction we need your card number,

contact you if you win.
We may also use your personal information
in other ways to provide you with superior service. This may
include using your personal information to advise you of new
products and services. You have the right to tell us that
you do not want us to send information to you other than for
the main purpose for which we have collected your personal

to other organisations (for example sub-contractors, and others
with whom we have commercial arrangements) is in a way that
ensures that you receive complete privacy as well as customer
As we are committed to protecting the
privacy of individuals, we will view unauthorised disclosure
of, or access to, personal information by our employees, contractors
or agents, as a serious breach of this policy. Appropriate
action (which may include disciplinary or legal action) will
be taken in such cases.
