Since you’ve been good enough to drop by a Hutchies website or open an email from us, we want to make sure your privacy is protected and outline how we manage collected data. Any information we collect about you, is used to provide you with material related to our business and anything you tell us will always be kept private and confidential. We always adhere to Australian and International Privacy Principles and Laws. If you’d like some more detail on how we protect your privacy, please read our policy below.
If you want to change any of the details you have provided or unsubscribe, you can do so anytime by sending us an email. All information we receive from our visitors is protected by our secure server, which encrypts all information before it is sent to us. We also secure all the data we collect against unauthorised use or access.
Storage and Security of Your Information
We receive and store information you provide us through:
- This website or another one of Hutchies' sites
- Day-to-day business together (ie business card exchanges, correspondence with Hutchies' people)
- Recruitment, employment or training
- Events or referrals
- Feedback you provide
- Systems we collaborate on
This might include basic personal and contact information such as:
- Date of birth
- Phone or mobile number
- Email address
- IP addresses
This enables us to send you information. We may also collect additional data at other times, including but not limited to, when you contact us, provide feedback, participate in training, change your content or email preferences, respond to a survey, or communicate with our people.
We may use personal information collected from you for the purpose of providing you with information about Hutchies including marketing material, updates regarding our business and / or divisions / initiatives, invitations to events, newsletters, and other general information. This will only apply if you have registered or subscribed by providing your details to us in any dealings with Hutchies as outlined above.
If you want to stop receiving this type of information, just let us know either by email or unsubscribing at any time at the bottom of certain emails. Your request will be actioned immediately. Unless required or authorised by law, or it is impracticable for us to deal with unidentified individuals, you have the right to remain anonymous or to use a pseudonym.
Individual profiles and company details are not used for any other purpose. Details are only supplied to a third party supplier when it is required by law to protect our copyright, trademarks and other legal rights.
We respect the privacy of all our dealings with visitors,
including online. We may collect information on or through various
forms that can personally identify you. For example, we collect
personally identifiable information which you volunteer to us to respond to
questions and comments about us and our services, and to mail e-newsletters
(the legal folks like to call it 'Personal Data').
We take reasonable steps to ensure the Personal Data we collect is accurate, up to date and complete. You can contact us [here] to let us know if a change to your Personal Data is needed, or if you would like access to your Personal Data. We also take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Data that we hold from misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Unless we are required by law to retain your Personal Data, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify your Personal Data when it is no longer required for the purpose it was collected.
Any non-personal information, communications and material you submit to us via one of our websites or by email, or which we obtain from third parties without promises of confidentiality, may be kept, used and disclosed by us on a non-confidential basis. We are free to use and reproduce any such information freely, and for any purpose whatsoever. Specifically, we will be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in such information for any purpose, including developing, manufacturing or marketing products.
No, not the delicious crunchy kind.
Disclosure of Your Information
We may, from time to time, need to disclose certain information, which may include your Personal Data, to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request. Also, we may use your Personal Data to protect the rights, property or safety of Hutchies, our customers or other third parties.
If there is a change of control in one of our businesses (whether by merger, sale, transfer of assets or otherwise) customer information, which may include your Personal Data, could be disclosed to a potential purchaser under a confidentiality agreement. We would only disclose your information in good faith and where required by any of the above circumstances.
We won’t sell our database. We don’t think that’s okay.
We do not and will not sell or deal in contact information. We will never disclose your personal details to a third party except the necessary information required by providers of products or services you have purchased or to protect the rights, property or safety of Hutchies, our customers or third parties or if required by law.
We might use your information in a general sense, though – without your name – to create statistics, identify trends or demands and to assist it in meeting market needs generally. We might also use the information that is collected to improve our website and services but not for any other use.
Keeping data safe is really important to us. We work hard to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personal information submitted to our websites, and we periodically update our security measures to keep up with current technologies.
