     Privacy

    This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Shopify at louisaameliajane.com.au or its related sites and services.

    This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Shopify or any third party services you access through Shopify.

    Information I Collect

    To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Shopify to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering if you contact me directly. I will use your email address to contact you regarding your order and shipping. If you give permission, i.e. join my VIP Club subscriber list, I will occasionally contact you with shop news and special deals. I will keep your personal address and contact details only to fulfil your order, and to remit to the Australian Taxation Office as required. I will keep information for approximately four years as required for taxation purposes.

    Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

    I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

    • as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
    • when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my VIP Club mailing list; A tracking cookie will be deployed on a subscriber's device when a link within a product retargeting email is clicked. This cookie allows Louisa Amelia Jane Vintage to follow the success of the marketing email. This information is used for no other purpose and is not passed on to other parties.
    • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
    • as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services.

    Information Sharing and Disclosure

    Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

    • Shopify. I share information with Shopify as necessary to provide you my services.
    • Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
    • Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
    • Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
    • If you subscribe to my VIP Club subscriber list, I will share your email address with Mailchimp who manage my subscriber list on my behalf.

    Data Retention

    I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

    Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

    I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the Australia, the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction

    Your Rights

    If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

    • Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
    • Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
    • Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
    • Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

    How to Contact Me

    For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Joanne Thompson, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at joanne@louisaameliajane.com.au
