PRIVACY POLICY

PRIVACY POLICY

OK serious stuff. Put your straighto head on.
T.U.K. (Australia) Pty Ltd knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting and shopping on our site at www.tukshoes.com.au you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT CUSTOMERS DOES T.U.K. (Australia) Pty Ltd GATHER?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalise and continually improve your shopping experience at www.tukshoes.com.au Here are the types of information we gather.

Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future shopping for you, improving our store, and communicating with you.
    Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our site.
      E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we might receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from info@tukshoes.com.au if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any TUKshoes.com.au e-mail.

      Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. 


      WHAT ABOUT COOKIES?

      Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognise your browser and to provide features such as storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.

      The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of TUKshoes.com.au's essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on. For instance, if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to complete a purchase in our store.


      DO WE, TUKSHOES.COM.AU SHARE THE INFORMATION WE RECEIVE?

      No way, not a chance. Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. 
       
      Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include  delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. EVER.

      Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of TUKshoes.com.au customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any T.U.K. e-mail.

      Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that TUK or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

      Protection of TUKshoes.com.au and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our terms of service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of TUKshoes.com.au, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.

      With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.


      HOW SECURE IS INFORMATION ABOUT ME?

      We work to protect the security of your information during order transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts order information you transmit.

      We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.

      It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.


      WHICH INFORMATION CAN I ACCESS?

      TUKshoes.com.au gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with TUKshoes.com.au for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. 
       


      WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE?

      As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase.

      If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Email Preferences or unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any T.U.K. e-mail.

      The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of TUKshoes.com.au's essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on. For instance, if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to complete a purchase in our store.


      ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED TO USE TUKSHOES.COM.AU?

      TUKshoes.com.au does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use TUKshoes.com.au only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.


      CONDITIONS OF USE, NOTICES, AND REVISIONS

      If you choose to visit TUKshoes.com.au, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Policy and delivery pages including limitations on damages, disputes, and choice of law. If you have any concern about privacy at TUKshoes.com.au, please email info@TUKshoes.com.au with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it.

      Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Policy will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
