TOM ORGANIC PTY LTD (TOM ORGANIC, we, our, us).
Personal information is information or an opinion about an identified individual, or about an individual who is reasonably identifiable.
Sensitive information, a sub-set of personal information, is information or an opinion about an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, political association membership, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, professional or trade association membership, trade union membership, sexual orientation or practices or criminal record, and includes health information and genetic information.
TOM ORGANIC collects personal information in several ways when you place an order or register for a service offered by TOM ORGANIC. By registering, you are consenting to the collection of your personal information. If an order is placed with us, we need to hold personal information including your name, email address, phone numbers, home address, shipping and credit/debit card billing address(es) so that we can process and fulfil your order. Saved card details will never be shared with third parties and will only be used to process your order, using our payment partner’s systems. Additionally we may also obtain information as a result of authentication or identity checks. These details allow us to process your order and to let you know the status of your order.
Generally, we do not collect sensitive information. However, we may collect sensitive information from you or about you where there is a legal requirement to do so, or where we are otherwise permitted by law. In all other situations, we will specifically seek your consent.
If we do not collect, hold, use or disclose your personal information, or if you do not provide your consent, then you may not be able to place an order or register for a service offered by us.

We collect, hold, use and disclose personal information from you or about you where it is reasonably necessary for us to carry out our business functions and activities. We may use your personal information for the processing of orders, payments and to provide you with a personalised shopping experience.

Where we wish to use or disclose your personal information for other purposes, we will obtain your consent, unless it could be reasonably expected that we would use your information for a related purpose.
We do not disclose your personal information to overseas entities. Should the need arise to disclose your personal information overseas, we will only do so where:
- it is necessary to complete the transaction you have entered into; and
- you have provided consent; or
- we believe on reasonable grounds that the overseas recipient is required to deal with your personal information by enforceable laws which are similar to the requirements under the Privacy Act; or
- it is otherwise permitted by law.
We may, however, disclose your personal information to third parties (including government departments and enforcement bodies) where required or permitted by law. Personal information that you provide to us may also be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information.
Where we intend to use your personal information in direct marketing, we will not so use your personal information unless we have received your consent (which includes an indication of no objection). We will use the personal information that we hold about you including your name, phone number, email and/or correspondence address to send you marketing materials.
When you register your personal information with us, you will be given the option to opt-out of subscribing to our regular update service which we will send you and may include:

We also have procedures in place for dealing with and responding to requests for access to, and correction of, the personal information held about you. In most cases, we expect that we will be able to comply with your request. However, if we do not agree to provide you access or to correct the information as requested, we will give you written reasons for our decision.
Your personal information is held and stored on paper, by electronic means or both. We have physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in place for personal information and take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is protected from misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised access, modification and disclosure. Our staff members receive periodic training on privacy procedures. When you provide us with your personal information, it is stored in a secure environment that is accessible only by authorised staff.
We will not keep your personal information longer than is necessary for fulfilment of the purposes specified above for which they are, or are to be, used. Personal information provided by you is retained if the purpose for which the personal information was collected still exists, it is so required by law, statute or regulation, or it is in the public interest.
We will take reasonable steps and use secure methods to destroy or de-identify personal information that is no longer required for any purpose for which the personal information may be used under this Policy in accordance with the Privacy Act.
In Australia, if we suspect that a data breach has occurred, we will undertake an assessment into the circumstances of the suspected breach within 30 days after the suspected breach has occurred. Where it is ascertained that a breach has actually occurred and where required by law, we will notify the Privacy Commissioner and affected individuals as soon as practicable after becoming aware that a data breach has occurred.
We have procedures in place for dealing with your complaints and concerns about our practices in relation to the Privacy Act, and any alleged breach of this Policy. We will respond to your complaint in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Privacy Act.
