This policy outlines how we deal with your Personal Information. It is important for you to know what information we collect about you, and what we do with it.
What is Personal Information, and why do we collect it?
Personal Information is information or an opinion that identifies an individual. Examples of Personal Information we collect include names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, credit card information and marketing preferences.
This Personal Information is gathered in varied situations including correspondence by telephone, by email, via our website www.blazeandfoam.com.au, from your website, from media and publications, from other publicly available sources, from cookies, from the information you share with us in connection with surveys, contests, promotions and from third parties. We don’t guarantee website links or policy of authorised third parties.
We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you, providing information to our suppliers and marketing. We may use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in matters where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by approaching us in writing.
When we collect Personal Information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.
Sensitive information is described in the Privacy Act to include information or opinion about such things as an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a trade union or other professional body, criminal record or health information.
Sensitive information will be used by us only:
For the primary purpose for which it was obtained
For a secondary purpose that is directly related to the primary purpose
With your consent; or where required or authorised by law.
Where reasonable and feasible to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some cases, we may be provided with information by third parties. In this situation we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Your Personal Information may be revealed in several circumstances including:
Via encrypted connection to our payment processors
Third parties where you consent to the use or disclosure; and
Where required or authorised by law.
Security of Personal Information
We store your Personal Information in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
The actual dates for which we keep your personal information vary depending on the information and why we need it. Factors we consider in determining these periods include the minimum required retention period prescribed by law or recommended as best practice, the period during which a claim can be made concerning an agreement or other matter, whether the personal information has been aggregated or pseudonymized, and other relevant criteria.
Please note that while providing the services, we collect and maintain aggregated, anonymised, or de-personalized information that we may retain indefinitely.
When your Personal Information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your Personal Information. However, most of the Personal Information is or will be kept by us for a minimum of 7 years.

Maintaining the Quality of your Personal Information
