We reserve the right, at our discretion, to modify this Policy at any time. By using our website and ordering our products you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as set out in this Policy.

We may collect your personal information at various stages in your interactions with us, such as when you subscribe to our newsletter, contact us, create an account or place an order. We hold your information in electronic form and take all reasonable steps to ensure it is secure and safe from unauthorised access.

In addition, Genova Australia provides targeted advertising services. To do so, Genova Australia uses the following information for the purposes explained:

• Device and browser information: technical information about the device or browser you use to access our website.
• Ad data: data about the online ads Genova Australia served you (or attempted to serve you. For example, how many times an ad has been served to you, what page the ad was served on and whether you clicked on the ad).
Genova Australia may disclose information about how you have interacted with an advertiser’s site that you have visited to that advertiser. It may also disclose information about you to its service providers and to service providers of its advertisers. It also shares hashed email addresses (or other identifiers associated with those hashes), technical data that it collects about your browsing habits and your device with other advertising companies in the digital advertising ecosystem to enable them to better target ads to you.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use the personal information we collect about you to identify your orders, provide you with our monthly newsletter (if you have indicated you wish to receive marketing materials) and to personalise your shopping experience with us. We also use it to identify lookalike audiences (customers who have similar interests to you) for Facebook Advertising.
Genova Australia is dedicated to keeping your details private. Any information we collect in relation to you is kept strictly secured. We will not disclose any of your personal information to anyone without your consent, unless we are required to by law to do so.
Your personal information will not be disclosed to any overseas recipients without your consent, such as for the purpose of delivering products you have ordered to an overseas address, where you have requested this.
However, your personal information may be disclosed where you yourself have disclosed such information as a result of submitting a review on our website or posting content to our social media platforms. This is because the reviews you submit or the content you post are visible to anyone who may access our website or social media accounts from time to time.
ACCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We take steps reasonable in the circumstances to ensure the personal information we hold is accurate, up-to-date, complete, relevant and not misleading. You have a right to access and/or seek correction of your personal information that is collected and held by us.
If at any time you would like to access or correct the personal information that we hold about you, or you would like more information on our approach to privacy, please contact us via our website or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We will grant you access to the extent required or authorised by law and take steps reasonable in the circumstances to correct personal information where necessary and appropriate. To obtain access to your personal information:
(a) you will have to provide proof of identity;
(b) you must be reasonably specific about the information you require; and
(c) we may charge you a reasonable administration fee, which reflects the cost to us for providing access in accordance with your request.
If you believe that we have breached your privacy rights, you can make a privacy complaint to us by emailing email@example.com
At all times, privacy complaints will be treated seriously, dealt with promptly and in a confidential manner; and will not affect your existing obligations or affect your commercial arrangements with us (if any).
