The server(s) that make(s) this site available, and databases where information may be stored, may be located outside the country from which you accessed this site, but we will collect, process and use personal information only in accordance with this policy. The personal information made available to us may, therefore, be transmitted abroad. By visiting this site and submitting information, you consent to such collection, processing, transfer and/or storage of your personal information.
While we do not intend to make changes to our policies very often, it is always a good idea to double check when you visit our site to be sure that you have read and agree with our most current policy statement.

When do we collect personal information?
We collect personal information, such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, hobby or activity information, demographic information (age, gender, etc.), employment and job preferences, or other preference information, and the like, when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. Visitors may choose to submit personal information online to enter competitions, to obtain information or submit a comment, to register for a newsletter, or to place an order. We may also obtain contact lists, demographic, and other information from other sources. For the convenience of our customers and to better serve you, we combine the data. You can change your preferences about receiving offers and information from us at any time.
What do we do with your personal information?
We collect personally identifiable information to enter you in competitions and notify you of results, to e-mail you with updates and news, to respond to your questions or comments, to register you for certain features, to send you updates when job vacancies that fit your profile arise, to provide personalised content, information, and/or to send out brochures, coupons, samples, offers and other information on our products or our company. We ask visitors providing e-mail addresses to let us know if they would like further information or updates from us or our site; only those who request it will receive follow-up e-mail or other communications from us. We may also ask if you would like to receive information about other products available from members of our family of companies. Only those who expressly ask to receive such information online will get it. If we are not sure of your preferences we may ask you about them. We also offer visitors an “opt-out” option at any time they wish to cease receiving e-mails or other information from us.
Sometimes our brands will make offers, coupons and information, including catalogues, available to you via mail. We may also use lists we have received from third parties or public sources to send you this information. You may “opt-out” of receiving offline communications from our brands at any time.
We may purchase and use opt-in e-mail lists to contact potential customers. We will honour opt-out requests and ask those providing lists to give us assurances that e-mail contact information is provided only for those consumers who have expressed a desire to receive offers and information by e-mail.
Personal information is used solely by us, and our affiliates, agents or business partners who help make this site and its content and the products and services at this site, available to you in order to respond to your requests (like fulfilling online shopping orders or offering a competition or promotion), and to better serve you, consistent with this policy. Data may be shared or combined between current or future affiliates, subsidiaries or other related entities of our company to enhance efficiency and minimise duplication of contacts with you. In addition, we may occasionally ask you if we may share information with other trusted third parties. We will let you know at the time the information is collected if such third-party sharing is anticipated, will identify the types of businesses at the area of collection, will describe the information we will share (like your mail or e-mail address) and will only share data if you agree. We will share personal data only with those who have agreed to follow careful policies.
