ShireWomen - Privacy Policy and Disclaimer

We have put in place the following policy to protect your personal information. By using our website and/or providing information to us, you consent to the policy.

What personal information do we collect?

You may give us information about yourself, such as your name, address, email address and telephone numbers, when, for example, you become a ShireWomen member and/or Business Member. When you visit our website we may collect more information, such as the address of your Internet service provider, the name of the web page directing you, and your clicks and activity on our site.

How do we use the personal information?

We may use the information to process your Business Services Payments, to administer your account, to conduct credit and other checks to our Business Customers, for our own internal purposes (such as risk management, staff training and billing), to help us to develop our website to be more available and user friendly to our customers, and for any other use which you may authorise, such as our ShireWomen monthly newsletter and to advise of exclusive member specials.

In addition, we may use the information to promote and market our products and services, or the products and services of others. However, we will not do this by email or text unless we have your express, inferred or deemed consent to do so, such as applying to becoming a Member and accepting our terms & conditions to do so. These emails and texts will always include an "unsubscribe" facility. Further, if you do not wish to receive them, you can update your records on our website, or email us at info@shirewomen.com.au
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by emailing us at info@shirewomen.com.au.

Will we disclose the information to others?

We do not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.

However, we do use other companies and individuals to perform services on our behalf, such as sending mail and emails and processing payments. They will have access to your personal information needed to perform these services, but we will not authorise them to use your information for other purposes. The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) on our website, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). When Credit Card details are collected, we simply pass them on in order to be processed as required. We never permanently store complete Credit Card details. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. If you have any questions about security on our Website, you can email us at info@shirewomen.com.au.

We also don’t disclose your information to our business partners, but may send marketing material or special offers to you on their behalf, as is accepted by you when becoming a ShireWomen member. In addition, we may provide statistics with personal identifiers removed about our customers, readers, sales, traffic patterns and related site functions to reputable third parties.

Legal
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Website.

Orders

If you purchase a product or service from us, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. You may be required to provide contact information (such as name, Email, and postal address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).
We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
