*Trimex Pty Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Clarins.
We recognise the importance of your privacy, and that you have a right to know how your personal information is collected and used.
1. Collection of personal information
1.1 We collect personal information from you when you subscribe to our emails, or otherwise provide your details to us, for the purposes set out in section 2.2 below.
1.2 We usually collect personal information through:
(a) our websites;
(b) orders for products or services;
(c) requests for brochures, to join a mailing list or to be contacted for further information about our products or services, either online or in hard copy, e.g. through our Customer Registry Card;
(d) provision of customer service and support;
(e) responses to surveys or research conducted by us or on our behalf; and
(f) entries into competitions or trade promotions conducted by us or on our behalf.
1.3 If you do not provide us with the information we request, we may not be able to fulfil the applicable purposes of collection, such as to supply our customer services to you.
1.4 Where practicable, we will collect personal information directly from you. If we receive information about you from someone else (for example from someone who supplies goods or services to us), we will take reasonable steps to ensure you are aware that we have collected personal information about you and the circumstances of the collection.
1.5 The types of personal information Clarins will collect from you will depend on the circumstances in which that information is collected. It may include:
(a) contact details (i.e. your name, address, email and phone details);
(b) information about your previous interactions with Clarins, including prior purchases;
(c) information required for you to do business with us including bank account details and any other relevant financial information;
(d) age and information on personal lifestyle preferences; and
(e) statistical information regarding the use of Clarins websites, including website users' IP addresses and the dates and times of visits.
2. Use and disclosure of personal information
2.2 Our main purposes for collecting, holding, using and disclosing personal information are:
(a) to supply products or services to our customers, including providing information about our products or services;
(b) to respond to enquiries from existing or prospective customers seeking information about our products or services;
(c) to provide customer support; and
(d) to undertake research, surveys and analyse statistical information.
2.3 We generally explain at the time we collect personal information how we will use or disclose that information. We will only use or disclose personal information for a purpose other than that for which it was collected or a related purpose if you have consented to the different use or disclosure or the use or disclosure is otherwise allowed by the Privacy Laws.
2.4 In carrying out our business, it may be necessary to share information about you with organisations that provide services to us. We would not otherwise routinely disclose personal information to another organisation unless:
(a) required by law;
(b) we believe it necessary to provide you with a service which you have requested;
(c) the assets and operations of our business are transferred to another party as a going concern;
(d) it is necessary to protect the rights, property or personal safety of any of our customers, any member of the public or our interests; or
(e) you have provided your consent.
2.5 In order to maximise the quality and efficiency of our services and our business operations, we may in the future use third party service providers, who may sometimes have access to personal information held by us and may use it on our behalf. We require our service providers to adhere to strict privacy guidelines and not to keep this information or use it for any unauthorised purposes.
Disclosure of information outside the jurisdiction of collection
2.6 We do not generally disclose personal information outside Australia. In the conduct of our business, we may hold your personal information on servers located in various countries, including France and Hong Kong. The privacy laws of those countries may not provide the same level of protection as the privacy laws of the country from which the personal information was collected. However, this does not change our commitment to safeguard your privacy and we will comply with all applicable laws relating to the cross-border disclosure of data.
2.7 We may, from time to time, send marketing materials to current or prospective customers, in accordance with applicable laws or with your prior consent.
2.8 If you are receiving promotional information from us and do not wish to receive this information any longer, please contact us directly on CustomerCare.AU@Clarins.com and ask to be removed from our mailing lists, or use the unsubscribe facilities included in our marketing communications.
