Privacy Laws generally regulate the collection and use of "personal information", which includes information or an opinion about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable.
We collect personal information by various means (including, but not limited to, when you fill in a form, send us an e-mail, enter a competition, order our products, speak to one of our representatives or deal with one of our affiliates, business partners, advertising partners, customers and other third parties). We generally collect personal information directly from you where this is reasonable and practical, but we may also collect personal information from third parties.
This information may include (but is not limited to) your name, e-mail and mailing addresses, contact numbers, date of birth, bank account and credit card details. We also collect information obtained as a result of reference, criminal or credit checks that you authorise us to carry out.
Other than in relation to people who directly work with or for us, we do not generally collect the following categories of sensitive information: information about your race or ethnic background, religion, trade union membership, political opinion, sexual preference or criminal record. We may collect health information about you from time to time. We will only collect sensitive information (including health information) with your prior consent.
We may also collect more information about how you interact with our websites and mobile applications, including (but not limited to) your web browser and version, device type, connection type, IP address, performance metrics and usage information, in order to help us to develop and improve our websites and mobile applications.
If you provide us with certain services, for example as a contractor or consultant, we may collect your personal information and, in some circumstances, sensitive information. Examples of where we collect this information include carrying out safety inductions, where we require you to provide driving records or medical certificates and if we carry out criminal record checks.
