How we Collect your Personal Information
How We Use Your Personal Information
If you withhold your Personal Information, it may not be possible for us to provide you with our products and services or for you to fully access our Website.
Sharing of your Personal Information
So that we can provide you with our products and services, we have to share some Personal Information with trusted third parties. When we share your Personal Information to third parties, we ensure that it remains secure by conducting business with trusted third parties to ensure that they will keep your Personal Information secure and confidential to the standards you and we would expect. Every external organisation we work with is required to have a contract with us which clearly describes the way in which they keep your Personal Information secure and the purposes for which they can use your Personal Information. The contract holds them fully responsible for meeting those expectations. We only send to third parties your Personal Information that is necessary for the purposes it is required.
Waterbell does not sell your Personal Information but we share your Personal Information as follows:
With core service providers to enable our business to function
We rely on a few external companies to provide us with services to conduct our business. Our core service providers include the delivery companies, payment gateway providers and technological service providers. It also includes companies to help us with our marketing and data analytics (e.g. Google Analytics). For service efficiency purposes, some of these providers are located in territories outside of Australia.
With regulators and law enforcement agencies when required to do so by law
We may from time to time need to disclose your Personal Information to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request.
When we think it is reasonably necessary to protect you or our business
In the unlikely event that Waterbell is the subject of attempted criminal activities, we will take all reasonable steps to protect you and our business but sometimes we may need to share your Personal Information where we think it is reasonably necessary to detect, monitor, investigate or prevent any suspected illegal activities, fraud or security issue; enforce our terms and conditions and to protect your and our rights and property; investigate and defend any third party claims or allegations.
As part of a business sale or purchase, merger or reorganisation
Although we have no current plans to do so, if there is a change of control in our business or a sale or transfer of business assets, we reserve the right to transfer to the extent permissible at law our user databases, together with any personal information and non-personal information contained in those databases.
Security of Your Personal Information
Waterbell is committed to ensuring that the Personal Information you provide to us is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure information and protect it from misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.
Personal Information Retention
