2. COLLECTION & USE OF INFORMATION
If you wish to place an order with Footgear we will require some basic contact and financial information. This includes your name, address, contact number and e-mail as well as credit card details such as card number, expiry date and security number. Without these details we will be unable to process your order. Your contact information is used during the billing process and for delivery purposes, while your financial information is used to receive payment for the goods you require. Supplying a contact phone number will enable us to inform you of any difficulties that may arise when processing your order. However, if your phone number is not provided we will endeavour to contact you via e-mail if necessary.
Footgear may place small data files, known as; Cookies, on your computer that allows us to recognise you each time you visit our website. By doing this, we can monitor traffic through the website and determine any opportunities for making it more user-friendly. No personally identifiable information is ever stored within the cookie. We also collect, with either cookies or weblogs, users' IP addresses and log in times. An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. Your IP address does not contain any personally identifiable information about you. Footgear collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our management, and to ensure the validity of an "opt-in" request (i.e., the consumer's consent to receive the requested information).
You always have the option to disable cookies while registering or interacting with the Footgear website. The only information we maintain in our database is the information you supply when filling out our registration form.
Under the Federal Privacy Act 1988, you have a right to access any information we hold about you. If you wish to gain access to this information write to us at the address below. We are happy to provide you with a copy of any information we hold about you, however we will require a proof of identity and it may take up to 30 days to process.
In addition, if you wish for us to delete any records we hold about you or if you wish to update any changes in your personal information, please contact us via the e-mail or postal address provided below. We aim to read and respond to every e-mail sent to us within 48 hours of its receipt. Normally, we will delete e-mails once they have been replied to except in cases where we believe the information will be required for future reference.
2.2 THIRD PARTIES
From time to time, we may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf (e.g., outsourced e-mail delivery companies). They will have access to your personally identifying information in order to perform their functions, but may not use the information for any other purposes. In such cases, we will have a non-disclosure agreement with the service provider to ensure your contact information is protected and is not misused.
Personal data shall not be transferred to another entity, country or territory, unless reasonable and appropriate steps have been taken to maintain the required level of data protection.
Footgear is committed to providing full security through our on-line store. Whenever you place an order with Footgear we use industry standard secure socket layer (SSL) technology. This software ensures that information that you input is encrypted before it is sent to us. Much of the site is not secure as no information is actually being exchanged; therefore no security risk exists. Pages that are not secure include the main catalogue, product descriptions and general information pages. Our checkout area is in a secure environment and your browser will confirm that you are using a secure connection by showing either a locked yellow padlock or an image of a key in the bar at the base of your screen.
This website may contain links to other websites operated by third parties other than Footgear. Such links are provided for your convenience only. Footgear does not control such websites and is not responsible for their content. The fact that this website contains links to other websites does not mean that Footgear approves of, endorses or recommends those websites, nor does it imply any association with their operators.
Footgear may at any time revise this Privacy Statement by updating this posting. You should therefore periodically visit this page to review the current Privacy Statement.
