(1) What do we do with your information?
When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address, and email address. This information is held in a range of paper-based and electronic records.
When you browse our store, much of the information we collect - such as the domain from which you access the internet, the date and time you access this website, and the internet address of the website from which you linked directly to this website - is statistical only and not personally identifiable. We use information about the number of visitors and their use of this website in aggregate form to make this website more useful and attractive to you.
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery, or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no. If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(3) Newsletter subscription
By subscribing to our newsletter you agree to receive emails from us. The aim of our newsletter service is to keep our customers and visitors updated about new product releases or new service offerings. The subscription to our newsletter service is not mandatory.
We reserve the sole right to either modify or discontinue the newsletter, at any time with or without notice to you. We will not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise such right. We reserve the sole right to unsubscribe users or visitors from our newsletter service without notice. We will do so with any subscriber we deem registered with fake data. You have the right to change your subscription settings or to delete it altogether anytime.
To provide our newsletter, we use MailChimp, which provides online platforms that can be used to create, send, and manage emails. Where (and only where) you have expressly indicated (e.g. by ticking the relevant box at checkout or by completing and submitting the Newsletter Subscription form) that you wish to be sent email newsletters, email marketing materials, and other information (via email), we will share with Mailchimp your email address, first name, and last name.
The Image Makery will only use information subscribers have provided for the purpose of creating, sending, and managing emails relating to the work of The Image Makery.
As MailChimp is based in the United States of America (USA) and the information generated by cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by MailChimp on servers located outside Australia, we are required to inform you that by subscribing to our Newsletter:
you understand and acknowledge that you will not be able to seek redress under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) but will need to seek redress under the laws of the USA.
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
Our store is hosted on Squarespace. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Squarespace's data storage, databases and the general Squarespace application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

(8) Third-party services
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.
