Thank you for visiting the Privacy Policy for Slightly Orangey Colour Pty Ltd t/a Blu Dot Australia ACN 155 634 058. Your privacy is important to us and we will only use your information as permitted by this Privacy Policy.

Blu Dot Australia is bound by the Privacy Act 1988 and the National Privacy Principles set by the Federal Privacy Commissioner. Our Privacy Policy will let you know what information we collect, how and when we share that information and your options as for sharing your information.

By using our Web sites or giving us personal information you agree to this Privacy Policy.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?
We may collect personally identifiable information (for example, your full name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, or credit card number) from you when you voluntarily submit the information to us when you use our website. We need this information in order to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status, in order to register you as a user of this site or to provide you with services. We may also collect personally identifiable information from you if you choose to subscribe to our email program, catalogue mailing list, enter the information into the shopping cart, or participate in sweepstakes, contests, and surveys, or in connection with content or suggestions you post on this site.

We also collect non-personally identifiable information (for example, interests, lifestyle choices, opinions) from you when you choose to provide or post non-personally identifiable information on this web site, or via participation in our email program, sweepstakes, contests, surveys or content or suggestions you post on this site.

Non-personally identifiable information may also be collected from you by means of Cookies and Pixel Tags. Cookies are small bits of information that this web site places on your computer. We and our 3rd party service providers use cookies and Pixel Tags to identify your IP address, browser type, domain name, and specific web pages through which you click. This data is collected automatically and utilised to help us look for trends to improve our web site and your interactive experience. The cookies that are configured by this web site do not contain any personally identifying information, such as your name, or sensitive information, such as your credit card number.

When Blu Dot conducts contests, sweepstakes, promotions and surveys, or joins with other companies to do so, if you choose to participate you may be asked to provide Personal Information. Blu Dot and the other participating companies may use this information for such purposes as notifying winners and fulfilling promotional obligations, and may also cross reference customer databases to identify common customers. Information from these activities may be used to explore future promotional opportunities or fulfill contractual obligations. Even if you have chosen not to receive communications from Blu Dot prior to your participation in a contest, sweepstakes, promotion or survey, you may still receive information from Blu Dot in connection with such activity if you register for or participate in it. You may choose not to participate in contests, sweepstakes, promotions or surveys if you do not wish to receive information from Blu Dot or share your information with Blu Dot and the other companies sponsoring such activities.

We may share your information if required to comply with a law, regulation, court order or legal process, or if we believe it is necessary to share such information with a government entity. We may share information to protect our rights or property or if the rights of any third party are jeopardised.

Transborder Data Flows
Personal information may be accessed in connection with the management and maintenance of the “Site” by Blu Dot e-commerce system managers who are based in the USA.

What We Will Not Do With Your Personally Identifiable Information
We will not rent, give or sell your personally identifiable information to any outside organisation for that organisation’s own use without your consent.

Choices for Opt-in and Opt-out
We and/or our third party marketing partners may contact you and market to you, including by mail, Internet connection, text, telephone, fax or mail, consistent with this Privacy Policy. However, in each of our email and texting marketing communications, we will allow you to opt out of future mail and texting marketing communications. We will attempt to require third parties with whom we share your information to also allow you to opt out of future email and texting marketing communications. Participation in certain of our programs will require you to accept email communications regarding the program itself. We will also attempt to prohibit our vendors and marketing partners from using your information in a manner inconsistent with this Privacy Policy. You may opt-out of receiving email and texting communications by clicking the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the email or text message received. It may take us up to ten days to complete this process.

Our Ownership of Information
Our copy of all your information is an asset of ours and belongs to us. In the event of a sale, merger, corporate reorganisation or similar transaction involving some or all of our business, we may share with or transfer your information to the buyer or successor entity. We may also retain a copy of that information.

We take every precaution to protect our customers' information. When customers submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When our registration/order form asks customers to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just "surfing."

If you have any questions about the security at our website, please contact us using the information below in the Contact Information section.
