Privacy Policy

Last updated 14 March 2007

Sweet Ideas Limited has established a privacy policy to outline how it protects and manages the personal information that it collects from you (the customer) online.

1. Consent to collect and use personal information

Your use of the Sweet Ideas Limited site and/or your registration for Sweet Ideas Limited products and services constitute your consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Sweet Ideas Limited site.

Sweet Ideas Limited may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When it does, Sweet Ideas Limited will also revise the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. In addition, Sweet Ideas Limited will seek a customer’s prior consent, by email, for any new uses or proposed disclosures of information collected from the customer prior to the change. Sweet Ideas Limited will notify customers by email of changes to this policy that will affect information collected from them in the future. In certain circumstances, however, Sweet Ideas Limited will not inform and obtain the consent of the customer, such as in connection with an investigation of a breach of an agreement, contravention of laws, an emergency where the life, health or security of an individual is threatened, the collection of a debt or in compliance with the request of a law enforcement agency or a court order.

A customer may withdraw his or her consent for collection, use and disclosure at any time by completing our enquiry form with the subject "unsubscribe".

2. Accountability

Sweet Ideas Limited collects, at the time of your registration for products and services through its web site, certain “personal information” (information that personally identifies you) including but not limited to your name, email address, home or work address, telephone number, and information about your computer hardware and software (e.g., IP address, operating system, browser type, domain name, URL, access times, and referring web site addresses).

Sweet Ideas Limited has implemented this Privacy Policy to protect personal information received from its customers, and to respond to any inquiries. The Privacy Policy also provides that Sweet Ideas Limited will use appropriate contractual means to establish a comparable level of protection for personal information which is sent for processing by third parties on Sweet Ideas Limited’s behalf.

3. Purposes for Collecting Personal Information

Sweet Ideas Limited collects and uses personal information for the following purposes

a. to develop and provide our website and products and services for our customers
b. to communicate with customers and site visitors, when necessary, and to inform customers of other products and services available from Sweet Ideas Limited, its affiliates and third parties
c. to fulfill your requests for products, services or information
d. to understand its customers needs
e. to allow customers access to limited-entry areas of Sweet Ideas Limited’s site
f. to personalize some of our services and products for you and to deliver targeted advertisements and offers from Sweet Ideas Limited and third parties
g. to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or government request
h. to respond to a legitimate claim, or to address our reasonable belief, that you are violating the rights of any third party or any of the agreements or policies that govern your use of the Sweet Ideas Limited site or any Sweet Ideas Limited product or service
i. to protect the services, products or rights of Sweet Ideas Limited, including but not limited to the security or integrity of the Sweet Ideas Limited site

Sweet Ideas Limited also uses personal information in an aggregate form (i.e., not individually attributable to you) for its business analysis, operational, marketing and other promotional purposes.

If we hire other companies to provide some products or services on our behalf, then we will only provide those companies the personal information they need for the Identified Purposes, and we will limit their rights to use and further disclose your personal information as appropriate in the course of their work for us.

4. Limiting Collection of Personal Information

Sweet Ideas Limited limits its collection of personal information to only that information which is necessary for the Identified Purposes

5. Disclosure, Processing and Retention

Sweet Ideas Limited does not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to anyone else, except:

a. to someone you have designated to act as your agent, for one or more of the Identified Purposes (listed in Section 2, above)
b. to Sweet Ideas Limited’s employees, independent contractors, subsidiaries, affiliates, consultants, business associates, service providers, suppliers and agents, acting on Sweet Ideas Limited’s behalf for any of the Identified Purposes
c. as necessary if Sweet Ideas Limited has reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with Sweet Ideas Limited’s rights or property, other users of Sweet Ideas Limited’s web site, products or services, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities
d. to respond to judicial process and provide information to law enforcement agencies or in connection with an investigation on matters related to public safety, as permitted by law, or otherwise as required by law

In addition, as we continue to develop our business, we may sell or buy other businesses or entities, or we may merge with another company. In such transactions, personal information may be one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Sweet Ideas Limited or substantially all of its assets are acquired, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets.

After your account becomes inactive (that is, if you request to be removed from our database), Sweet Ideas Limited will keep your personal information in its archives. Your information will then be used only as necessary for tax reasons or to prove Sweet Ideas Limited’s compliance with any applicable law.

6. Accuracy of Personal Information

Sweet Ideas Limited will use reasonable efforts to keep customer personal information accurate for the Identified Purposes, and for minimizing the possibility of making inappropriate customer decisions based on such information. Customers are responsible for informing Sweet Ideas Limited about changes to their personal information. You can do this by calling +64 9 2762012 or by completing our enquiry form with the subject "Privacy". Sweet Ideas Limited will use new or updated personal information it receives from customers to update its own records.

7. Data Security

Sweet Ideas Limited will use reasonable efforts to protect customers’ personal information

8. Access to Personal Information
