The Internet has the power to change the way we live. With only a few clicks, you can follow the news, look up facts, buy goods and services, and communicate around the world. It’s important to Stornoway to help our customers retain their privacy when they take advantage of all the Internet has to offer.
We believe your business is no one else’s. Your privacy is important to you… and to us… so we’ll protect the information you share with us.
“Personal information” is information that personally identifies you. To protect your privacy, Stornoway follows different principles in accordance with worldwide practices for customer privacy and data protection.
Personal information collected
We may collect the following types of personal information from you:
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you. We may use your Personal Information for four primary purposes:
• To make the site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
• To help us create content most relevant to you.
• To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other new services from Stornoway.
Stornoway has taken appropriate measures to protect the security of your personal information and to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honoured. We take appropriate precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under certain conditions. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in Australia or any other country where Stornoway, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
Notice to Parents
Parents or guardians: we want to help you guard your children’s privacy. We encourage you to talk to your children about safe and responsible use of their Personal Information while using the Internet.
The Stornoway site does not publish content that is targeted to children. However, if you are concerned about your children providing Stornoway any personal information without your consent, please contact us by email.
What we do with the information you share
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Stornoway will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Stornoway or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Stornoway and its family of Websites, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Stornoway, its web sites, or the public.
