An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer and which is required when you are using the internet. It may disclose the area in which you are located.

3. How we store data and transmit personal information including overseas
3.1 We collect and store information electronically using our own and third-party servers including our website hosts, data backups and payment gateway(s), which may be located overseas.
3.2 Many of our products are made overseas and in certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your personal information to one of our suppliers, for example, if we are arranging to ship an item directly to you from overseas.
4. Why we collect your personal information
4.1 The purposes for which we collect and hold your personal information include:
(a) To process and deliver your order;

(c) To manage orders and visits made to our website(s) operated in conjunction with our business, including analysing data collected from our website(s) concerning site visits and purchases. This helps us run our website(s) more efficiently and give you a better experience online. We use information from Google Analytics to help further improve your experience in using our website(s);
(d) To create backups of our business records; and
(e) For direct marketing purposes, including to advise you about new, existing and upcoming products, services or offers that we feel you may be interested in.

Alternatively, you can call or write to us to request that you be removed from our marketing list. Our mailing list may be operated by software and servers located overseas and as such your personal information may be sent overseas as part of our marketing.
