Bubs Australia Ltd and its group companies (“we”, “us” and “Bubs”), are bound by laws and regulations applying to privacy and data protection in Australia, including the Australian Privacy Principles (“APPs”) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Laws). The object of the Privacy Laws is to protect the confidentiality of Personal Information and the privacy of individuals by regulating the way in which that personal information is managed.
“Personal Information” means information or an opinion about an identified individual or from which an individual can be reasonably identified. It includes “Health Information” which is information about an individual’s physical or mental health, a health service provided to an individual, as well as details of what medicines they use.
Bubs is committed to protecting the Personal Information it collects and regularly monitors its systems and procedures to ensure compliance with Privacy Laws and this Policy. This Policy outlines the way in which Bubs deals with the Personal Information it collects in Australia.
Bubs collects Personal Information that is reasonably necessary for or directly related to our functions and activities as a provider of infant nutrition. In some cases we may be required by law to collect Personal Information in order to comply with our regulatory obligations such as responding to safety concerns about our products.
Bubs may collect Personal Information about you through our interactions with you. Personal Information may be collected by Bubs in the course of:
The Personal Information we collect may include:
We will inform you about the purpose and use of collected Personal Information.
Bubs will use or disclose your Personal Information for the primary purpose for which it is collected, which generally includes the following purposes:
We may also use your Personal Information to:
We will only use or disclose your Personal Information for a purpose that was not the primary purpose for which we collected it if you would reasonably expect us to do so or if we have your permission. We may also use or disclose Personal Information if we are required or authorised by law to do so.
If you do not wish to receive information or materials about Bubs products and updates, you may request not to receive these marketing materials by sending us an “Opt Out Notice”. The Opt Out Notice should be addressed to:
The Privacy Officer (General Counsel)
Address: 4/6 Tilley Lane, Frenchs Forest NSW 2086
Once Bubs receives your request, we will add your name to a no contact list for marketing purposes.
When dealing with particularly sensitive Personal Information, such as your Health Information for a purpose that is not directly linked to the primary purpose of collection, Bubs will generally seek your consent before using the Health Information. In only very limited circumstances, such as where required by law to disclose information or in the event of a serious threat to your life or health, will we disclose your Health Information without your consent.
As part of a group of companies, we may disclose some Personal Information to another Bubs company or third party IT provider that maintains Bubs’ secure databases from an overseas location. In disclosing data offshore, Bubs ensures that the use and disclosure of the Personal Information transferred is dealt with in accordance with this policy and the safeguards under Australian Privacy Laws.
Bubs will not sell your Personal Information to any third party for any purpose. Selected third parties may be used to provide Bubs with support services in connection with our business operations, for example database IT support or media relations. Such third parties may, from time to time, have access to your Personal Information to enable them to provide those services to Bubs.
All companies providing such support services are required by Bubs to process the Personal Information disclosed to them only for the purposes expressly authorised by Bubs. Further, third parties are required by Bubs to meet our standards of data protection and comply with the safeguards under Australian Privacy Laws.
Bubs has put in place safeguards to protect the Personal Information we hold from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Bubs generally holds the Personal Information you provide to us in an electronic form on computer servers, which are password protected for limited access and are located in controlled facilities. However Bubs may also hold Personal Information in physical form, such as in paper hard copies. While Bubs cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse or alteration to data, we take reasonable steps to prevent such occurrences.
Access to the Personal Information is restricted to those employees who need to use the data, who have been trained to handle such data properly and observe strict standards of confidentiality. Bubs destroys or permanently de-identifies Personal Information that we no longer need, where permitted.
You have the right, in most cases, to access Personal Information at any time. Bubs takes reasonable steps to ensure that any information we hold about you is up-to-date, accurate and complete. If you wish to access or correct Personal Information we hold, or you have any questions about this Policy or concerns/complaints about privacy, please contact us at the address set out in clause 3, or call our Privacy Officer on +61 2 9905 0050, setting out a full description of the matter that you would like to raise.
We will respond to your complaint within a reasonable period, usually within 30 days.
