Wedding Dress Express (“WDE”, “us”, “our”, or “we”) strives to offer the visitors of our website http://www.weddingdressexpress.com.au and all subdomains of our web site as well as all services related to the web site (collectively, “the site”) the many advantages of internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalised experience. In order to do this, we may, at times, use “Personally Identifiable Information” (any information that can be used to identify a specific individual, such as a name, postal address, telephone number or email address) subject to the terms of this statement (“Policy”). Please note that this Policy applies only to information collected by WDE online and does not impact information collected or used by WDE through other means.
The Type of Information Collected
Site Visitor Information Collected
Many web browsers are automatically set to accept cookies. You may change your browser settings to either reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is about to be placed on our computer. Please note, however, that rejecting cookies while visiting the Site may result in certain parts of the Site not operating correctly or as efficiently as if they were allowed. Cookies must be enabled in order to register with the Site. Click here to see How to Enable Cookies.
How Personally Identifiable Information is Used
We collect and use the Personally Identifiable Information you provide to enhance your visit and deliver more individualised content and advertising. For example, we may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on the Site to communicate with you regarding products and services offered by WDE and our affiliates and partners and other topics we think you might find of interest; in the administration of sweepstakes, competitions or other promotions; and to process e-commerce transactions. In addition, we use Personally Identifiable Information, such as your purchase information, to improve the performance of our Site, to customise the content and layout of our Site pages for you and to inform you of new areas of the Site and product specials.
How Aggregate Information is Used
Aggregate information collected on the Site may be used and disclosed in any way. For example, we may collect and analyse collected Aggregate Information to determine how many visitors arrived at certain pages of the Site, how long they stayed on those pages, and where they went afterwards. This information allows us to determine which pages might be the most interesting to our visitors and enables us to provide them with a better and richer experience on the Site. Additionally, we may use Aggregate Information to improve the performance of our Site, and to customise the content and layout of our Site pages for you. Occasionally we may share Aggregate Information with third parties, such as our business partners, for marketing and promotional purposes. Aggregate Information gleaned from your use of the Site may also be used to inform you of new areas of the Site and product specials. We may supplement Aggregate Information collected from the Site with similar information obtained from our affiliates, companies with whom we have marketing or other business relationships, and other third party sources. Please note that certain Aggregate Information may be linked with Personally Identifiable Information. Any such linked information will be treated as Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes of this Policy as long as it is so linked.
Sharing Personally Identifiable Information with Third Parties
Apart from the purposes stated above, WDE will not sell, rent or share your Personally Identifiable Information with Third Parties.
Information Provided to Linked Web Sites
We take reasonable precautions to safeguard the Personally Identifiable Information transmitted between visitors and the Site and the Personally Identifiable Information stored on our servers. We use encryption for the transmission of data to our servers during member registration, sign in and order check out. Unfortunately, no method of transmitting or storing data over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, we ensure the security of any information you transmit to us through or in connection with the Site. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your Personally Identifiable Information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is, in our sole discretion, appropriate, we would endeavour to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your email address, we may notify you by email. If you receive an email or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your Site password) via email or to a web site that does not seem to be affiliated with the Site, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not provide such information, and report such request to us to email@example.com.
