1. Types of information that we collect and purpose of collection
‘Personal information’ is information or an opinion, in any form (whether true or not), about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable.
The kinds of personal information we collect and hold about you will depend on the circumstances of collection, including whether we collect the information from you as a mailing list subscriber, purchaser of or merchandise, or in some other capacity.
For example, if you are a mailing list subscriber, we only collect your name and email address. If you purchase or merchandise from us, we collect additional information such as date of birth, address, phone number, information about goods or services ordered, billing and payment details, your enquiries or complaints and your transaction history with us.
2. How we collect your personal information
Collecting personal information from you
We collect your personal information when you interact with us directly via our website get1.com.au and social media accounts. We also collect your personal information when you purchase merchandise from us and when you join competitions or giveaways organised by us.
Collection through social media platforms
When you interact with us using social media platforms, you are also providing personal information to the operators of these social media platforms. Such information is subject to those operators’ policies governing privacy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices and policies of these operators even if you accessed these platforms from our website. We encourage you to read and understand these operators’ privacy policies before providing them with your personal information.
Collecting personal information from other sources
Sometimes we collect personal information about you from other sources where you have consented to the collection of the information from someone else, we are authorised by law to collect the information from someone else or it is unreasonable or impracticable to collect the information from you personally.
At all times this information is collected by lawful means and in a manner that respects your privacy.
If we receive unsolicited personal information about you from a third party and it is clear to us that we should not have received that information, we will destroy or securely delete that information (if it is lawful and reasonable for us to do so).
Notification of collection of personal information
If we collect your personal information from third parties in circumstances where you may not be aware that we have collected your personal information, and that information can be used to identify you, we will take reasonable steps to notify you of the collection and the circumstances that surround the collection.

Disclosure to third parties
We will not sell, gift, rent or trade your personal information to anyone.

Our website contains features or links to websites and services provided by third parties such as social media platforms, e-commerce platforms, online streaming services and external payment gateways.

4. Direct marketing
Opt out from direct marketing
We may use your personal information to send you marketing materials about our products and services, events and promotions. If you do not wish to receive marketing material from us you may:
(a) contact the privacy officer in accordance with paragraph 8.1 of this policy; or
(b) opt-out of receiving further marketing material via any opt-out mechanism contained in our marketing correspondence.
5. Protecting personal information
Storing personal information
We store your personal information in different ways, including in physical and electronic form on site and with third party storage providers.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural security measures to safeguard your personal information and to secure and protect it from misuse and unauthorised access, disclosure or interference by:
(a) physical security measures for access to systems, including restricting access to authorised personnel only, control of access to buildings and use of user identifiers and passwords;
(b) electronic security systems such as firewalls and data encryption, backup and recovery of systems, use of rostering, staff management and finance software, use of secure payment portals and secure socket layer (ssl); and
(c) procedural security measures, including imposing confidentiality obligations on employees, consultants and contractors, providing them with training and requiring them to comply with strict privacy and security policies and procedures including account decommissioning for exiting staff.
What happens if we no longer need your personal information?
If we no longer need your personal information for any purpose, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify the information, unless the information is contained in a commonwealth record or we are required by law, or a court/tribunal order, to retain the information.
6. Access to, and correction of, personal information
Access to personal information
You may request access to personal information we hold about you by contacting our privacy officer in accordance with paragraph 8.1 of this policy.
We will respond to a request for access within a reasonable time, and give you access in the manner you request, if it is reasonable and practicable to do so, unless an exception in the privacy act applies. (for example, if providing this access may disclose information about another person we may need to refuse to grant you access.)
We may need to verify your identity before we give you access to your personal information. Depending on the nature of the request, we may charge you a small fee to access that information.
You may request us to correct any information about you which you think is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date. We will respond to a correction request within a reasonable time.
If we correct your personal information that we have previously disclosed to another entity, and you ask us to tell the other entity about the correction, we will take reasonable steps to tell the other entity about the correction, unless it is impractical or unlawful to do so.
Refusal to allow access to, or correction of, personal information
If we refuse to allow you access to your personal information or to correct that information, then we will provide you with the reasons for our decision and will inform you of mechanisms available to complain about the refusal.
You have the option to remain anonymous, or to use a pseudonym when dealing with us where it is lawful and practical to do so. However, without your personal information we may not be able to provide you with our products and services.
