What is “personal information”?
Personal information is defined by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (“Privacy Act”) as ‘information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable, whether the information or opinion is true or not and whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.’
Personal information held by Jane Mow may include your:
- date of birth;
- residential and business postal addresses, telephone/mobile/fax numbers and email addresses;
- social media handles and other information contained in your social media account, such as photos and comments;
- bank account and/or credit card details for agreed billing purposes;
- your computer and connection information; and
- any information that you otherwise share with us, such as testimonials and reviews.
Information provided to PayPal
Purchases that are made through this Website may be processed securely and externally by PayPal. Unless you expressly consent otherwise, we do not see or have access to any personal information that you may provide to PayPal, other than information that is required to process your order and deliver your purchased items to you (e.g., your name, email address and billing/postal address).
How we may collect your personal information

Jane Mow collects and manages IP addresses as part of the service of providing internet session management and for security purposes.

When we may disclose your personal information
We may disclose your personal information to organisations outside Jane Mow for the purposes set out above. Your personal information disclosed to these organisations only in relation to this Website, and Jane Mow takes reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information. These organisations may carry out or provide:
- customer enquiries;
- billing and debt-recovery functions;
- information technology services;
- marketing, telemarketing and sales services;

In addition, we may disclose your personal information to:
- your authorised representatives or legal advisers (when requested by you to do so);
- credit-reporting and fraud-checking agencies;
- credit providers (for credit-related purposes such as creditworthiness, credit rating, credit provision and financing);
- our professional advisers, including our accountants, auditors and lawyers;

Access to your personal information
In most cases, you may have access to personal information that we hold about you. All requests for access to your personal information must be directed to the Privacy Officer by email using the email address provided above or by writing to us at our postal address. We will deal with all requests for access to personal information as quickly as possible. Requests for a large amount of information, or information that is not currently in use, may require further time before a response can be given. We may charge you a fee for access if a cost is incurred by us to retrieve your information, but in no case will we charge you a fee for your application for access.
In some cases, we may refuse to give you access to personal information that we hold about you. This may include circumstances where giving you access would:
- be unlawful (eg, where a record that contains personal information about you is subject to a claim for legal professional privilege by one of our contractual counterparties);
- have an unreasonable impact on another person’s privacy; or
- prejudice an investigation of unlawful activity.
We may also refuse access where the personal information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings, and the information would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings.
Correcting your personal information
We rely in part on you advising us when your personal information changes. If you believe that any information we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, please contact us using the details set out below. We will amend any personal information about you that is held by us and that is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date if you request us to do so. If we disagree with your view about the accuracy, completeness or currency of a record of your personal information that is held by us, and you ask us to associate with that record a statement that you have a contrary view, we will take reasonable steps to do so.
Deleting your personal information
If you want us to delete personal information we hold about you or to not collect information from you for a specific purpose, such as targeted advertising, please contact us using the details set out below. Please note that if we agree to delete your information, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without retaining some residual information. We will functionally delete the information and we will not transfer, or use personal information relating to you in any way moving forward.
Storage and security of your personal information
We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of the information that you provide us, and we will take all reasonable precautions to ensure the personal information we hold is secure and protected from misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. In our business, personal information may be stored both electronically (on our computer systems and with our website hosting provider) and in hard-copy form. We undertake the following precautions to protect personal information we hold, both electronically and in hard-copy:
- our Website contains pages encrypted with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to ensure the safety of any data that is submitted through use of this website;
- we limit access to personal information to a “need-to-know” basis;
- we protect devices we use to collect, hold, use and disclose personal information with industry-standard anti-virus software;
- our devices are stored in secure premises;
- data is securely stored on cloud servers;
- our email data is encrypted;
- all hard copies of personal information are kept in secure storage with access by authorised personnel only;
- all conversations involving the discussion of personal information take place in private, where conversations are unable to be overheard by unauthorised personnel; and
- if we no longer need personal information, we take reasonable steps to delete or de-identify the information.
While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure Website and business, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins, and we cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place.
Third party websites
You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ads Settings page (https://www.google.com/settings/ads). Facebook has enabled an AdChoices link that enables you to opt out of targeted advertising.
Duration of retention of your data
We will only keep your data for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, subject to satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. At the end of any retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised (for example, by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning). In some circumstances, you can ask us to delete your data.
Contacting us about privacy
If you would like more information about the way we manage personal information that we hold about you or are concerned that we may have breached your privacy, please contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post. If you are unsatisfied with our response, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner may be able to assist you with a review of our decision. Contact the OAIC for more information.
