This statement is designed to tell you as much as possible about how we use and manage personal information provided to or collected by us. We believe you should be made aware of our practices so you can make informed decisions about how you allow us to use your information.
We are bound by and support the National Privacy Principles contained in the Commonwealth Privacy Act.
Any questions regarding this statement or complaints regarding privacy should be sent to Australian Therapy and Sensory Shop Pty Ltd, via our “Contact Us” page or email: Sales@therapysensory.com.au
We collect personal information in a variety of ways while conducting our business. We collect this information so you can subscribe to newsletters, request a product or service from us, complete a survey or questionnaire, seek employment, or communicate with us by email, or in writing.
We use personal information for the primary purpose for which it is collected and for such other secondary purposes that are related to the primary purpose. In certain circumstances, we may use personal information for promotional or direct marketing purposes. However, you may at any time request us not to use your personal information for sending direct marketing material to you. Such a request can be made by contacting us either in writing via the “Contact Us” page, or by email: Sales@therapysensory.com.au.
We respect the privacy of personal information and we will take reasonable steps to keep it strictly confidential.
We will disclose personal information to third parties if it is necessary for the primary purpose of collecting the information, or for a related secondary purpose, if the disclosure could be reasonably expected (e.g., disclosure to a delivery contractor for the purpose of delivering goods or services ordered from us). Where such a disclosure is necessary, we will require that the third party undertake to treat the personal information in accordance with the National Privacy Principles.
Otherwise, we will only disclose personal information to third parties without your consent if the disclosure is:
(i) necessary to protect or enforce our legal rights or interests or to defend any claims;
(ii) necessary to prevent or lessen a serious threat to a persons’ health or safety; or
(iii) required by law.
Disclosure between our companies: We may also disclose personal information we collect about you to a related company. The company to which information is disclosed is bound to use it for the same purpose as the information was collected, unless otherwise permitted by law. Under no circumstances we will sell personal information without your consent.
We use the term “cookies” to refer to cookies and other similar technologies covered by the EU Directive on privacy in electronic communications.

We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that all personal information held by us is secure from any unauthorised access or disclosure. However, we do not guarantee that personal information cannot be accessed by an unauthorised person (e.g. a hacker) or that unauthorised disclosures will not occur.
We will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information if it is no longer needed for the purposes for which we are authorised to use it.
We have appointed a Privacy Officer to oversee our management of personal information in accordance with this policy and the Commonwealth Privacy Act. We have also directed staff that personal information must be dealt with in accordance with this policy and that personal information must be kept secure from unauthorised access or disclosure.
