It details the type of personal information we collect from the Website, how we store or process personal information about you, with whom we may share it and the choices available to you regarding our use of the information. We also describe the measures we take to safeguard your personal information and tell you how to contact us regarding our privacy practices.

This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

2. DEFINITION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

"Personal information" means any information relating to a natural person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number or an online identifier.

  • provide to any other entities owned by The Pistol; and

  • upload directly into the media channel or client relationship management (CRM) system.

We also collect other information about your online activities automatically, usually from the use of cookies.

If we receive personal information that we have not requested (unsolicited information) then we will destroy or de-identify the information if it is lawful and reasonable to do so.

4. WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOLD

A. Information collected directly from you

Certain visitors to the Website choose to interact with it in ways that require us to gather personal information. The amount and type of information that we gather depend on the nature of the interaction and the services sought by the visitor.

Examples of the types of personal information that we may collect from you include your contact information, such as your name, telephone number and email address.

B. Information we collect automatically

Like most website operators, we automatically collect information from you and your devices when you access the Website. We may collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the Website.

C. Information collected during the provision of services

Depending on the scope and nature of the services being provided, we may collect some or all of the following information:

  • online sales data (i.e. e-commerce transactions, not including any payment details);

  • offline sales data exports (i.e. a unique personal identifier such as a loyalty identification number); and

  • CRM data including customer and lead lists.

D. Comments

When visitors leave comments on the Website we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string in order to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

E. Media

If you upload images to the Website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the Website can download and extract any location data from images on the Website.

5. WHY WE COLLECT, HOLD, USE AND DISCLOSE PERSONAL INFORMATION

Specifically, we may collect and hold information about you in order to provide you with services available for order on our Website.

Additionally, we may use the information obtained through the Website to respond to and communicate with you about your requests, questions and comments and allow you to order our services.

6. LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION

If European Data Protection Laws applies, our lawful basis for collecting and using the information described in this Privacy Policy will depend on the information concerned and the specific context in which we collect or use it.

We normally collect or use information from you where we have your consent to do so, where we need the information to perform a contract with you or to provide our services or products to you upon your request, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or rights and freedoms.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the lawful basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details in this Privacy Policy.

7. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We respect the privacy of personal information and will take reasonable steps to keep it strictly confidential.

The personal information you submit directly to us will be stored by electronic means on HubSpot. This means your personal information may be processed and stored in the EU and the US.

If you are based outside of Australia, by using our Website and accessing our services you consent to the transfer of your personal information to Australia, and the processing and use of that data in Australia.

We also have an Internal Data Breach Response Plan which will be followed in the event of a data breach.

You are encouraged to upload all other data via API integration and/or directly through the media channel or CRM.

The security of your personal information is important to us and whilst we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of information will never occur, we will use all reasonable efforts to prevent it.

Submission of information over the internet is never entirely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of information you submit via our Website whilst it is in transit over the internet and any such submission is at your own risk.

8. DIRECT MARKETING

We may use your information to offer you products and services that we think may be of interest to you, unless you have opted out of marketing communications.

Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent before sending you any marketing communications. You may withdraw your consent to the use of your data for marketing purposes at any time by contacting us on our contact details as outlined in section 17 of this Privacy Policy.

We will never provide your information to third parties for marketing purposes without receiving your consent.

11. LINKS TO EXTERNAL SITES

The Website and all articles published on the Website may include embedded content (for example videos, images, articles, etc.) from other websites. If you click on embedded content you will be directed to that third party's website.

We may use third-party web analytics services on our Website. These service providers help us analyse how users use our Website and help us improve our services.

The information collected for this purpose (including your IP address and other information collected by automated means) will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. These service providers may retain and use anonymized, aggregated data collected from users of our Website in connection with their own businesses, including in order to improve their products and services.

To learn more about opting out of data collection through analytics services such, please contact us using our contact details in section 17 of this Privacy Policy.

13. E-COMMERCE

Those who engage in transactions with us are asked to provide additional information, including, as necessary, the personal and financial information required to process the transactions.

We will only retain your personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected. We will also retain personal information to ensure compliance with any applicable statutory or regulatory obligations imposed on us in relation to the retention of records.

However, if you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our Website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see and edit their personal information at any time. Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Where you have requested we stop processing your personal information for marketing purposes, we may retain a record of your request to ensure we abide by your request in the future.
