We may also collect your personal information from third parties if you have consented to this.

How do we use or disclose your personal information?
By submitting your Personal Information to us, including (without limitation) when you provide us with Personal Information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, you consent to us using or disclosing your personal information for:
- the Primary Purposes set out above; and
- any secondary purposes closely related to the Primary Purposes (or, in the case of sensitive information, directly related to the Primary Purposes) set out above, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure, or otherwise with your consent or as required by law.
We may also use and disclose your personal information:
- with your consent;
- where we are authorised or required to do so by law;
- to our related entities, third party partners or third party service providers who work with us in our business (for example, website hosting and cloud service providers, payment processors, security service providers and support service providers), to provide, promote or improve our products and services;

- as permitted under the APPs.

We may send this information by mail, email, SMS and telephone or via an in-app notification. If you no longer wish to receive these communications, you may opt out at any time by using the unsubscribe facility that we use in our messages. You may also unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing.
Any information posted by you on review forums or communicated in chat areas becomes public information and we therefore cannot guarantee the security of this information. We are not responsible for personal information (or other information) you chose to submit in such forums.
Using other sites
In general, the third-party providers we use will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
Our store is hosted by Shopify. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then our payment gateway provider Eway stores your credit card data. It is then encrypted via TLS 1.2 standards. Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
How do we store and protect your personal information?
The security of your personal information is important to us and we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to keep your Personal Information secure and protect it against loss, misuse, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
How long will we keep your personal information?
We retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it unless a longer period is required or permitted by law.
If you tell us that you do not wish to receive marketing communications, we will keep this information about you until you tell us otherwise. This is to ensure that we do not send you any further marketing communications in error.
Accessing and correcting your personal information
If you would like to: access, correct, amend or delete any Personal Information we have about you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at Remedy Drinks, 33 Endeavour Court, Dandenong South, Victoria, 3175.
We will endeavour to respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe (but not more than 30 days). If we need more time, we will seek to agree a longer period of time with you. If you do not agree, we may not be able to address your request.
We will give you access to or correct your personal information unless there is a lawful reason for refusing your request. If we deny access, we will provide you with the reason for such denial. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, risk the security of our products or services or the privacy of others, or are otherwise impracticable.
In most cases, we can provide you with a summary of your personal information free of charge. However, in some circumstances, we may recover from you our reasonable costs of supplying you with access to your personal information, subject to the Privacy Act and any other relevant laws.
