Privacy Policy

This privacy policy is provided by The Shed Company (referred to as “The Shed Company”, “us”, “our”, or “we” in these terms) for the information of visitors (referred to as “you” or “your” in these terms) to our website.

In this policy we explain how and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, and what controls you have over our use of it. The Shed Company does not disclose or publish personal information collected through the website without consent. Access to this information is restricted to The Shed Company staff and The Shed Company consultants who are bound to respect the privacy of the information. The Shed Company is bound by Australia’s National Privacy Principles, to the extent required by the Privacy Act 1988

1. Collection Of Information
1.1. Some information provided to us by clients, customers, contractors and other third parties might be considered private or personal. Without these details we would not be able to carry on our business, provide our services to you, and to responsibly market our products and services. We will only collect such personal information if it is necessary for one of our functions or activities.

1.2. A person may use our website anonymously, but any information the person chooses to submit to us (e.g. join us, make a online quotation request, or send us an email) will be treated in accordance with this privacy policy.

1.3. At or before the time the personal information is collected by us we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of who we are, the fact that you are able to gain access to the information held about you, the purpose of the collection, any laws requiring the collection of the information and the main consequences for you if all or part of the information is not collected.

1.4. When you enter our website, we may use your internet protocol (“IP”) address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our website and to help identify you. Your IP address may also be used by us to gather broad demographic information for other purposes, such as monitoring visitor frequency.

1.5. You may be aware that there is a technology called “cookies”. This is a file that is transferred from the website to the hard drive of your computer. We use cookies to track your activities on our website. A cookie will not allow a website operator to obtain information of a personal nature that will identify you to us, such as your name and address. We will only be aware of such information if you provide the information to us or you have set the preferences in your browser to provide this information automatically. You may nominate to reject or delete a cookie. Your browser should contain information on how to do this. If you do so, you can still access our website, although you may be limited in some uses of the website.

2. Use & Disclosure
2.1. We may use or disclose personal information held about an individual for the primary purpose for which it is collected (e.g. the provision of our services to you, including administration of our services, notification to you about changes to our services, recordkeeping following termination of our services to you and technical maintenance). We may also use this information for purposes related to the primary purpose of collection, and only where it would be reasonable, lawful and ethical to do so. This may include sending you information regarding our services by way of email. Such information is only disclosed to persons outside of our business in circumstances outlined in this privacy policy.

2.2. In addition we are permitted to use or disclose personal information held about you:
2.2.1. Where you have consented to the use or disclosure;
2.2.2. Where we reasonably believe that the use or disclosure is necessary to lessen or prevent a serious, immediate threat to someone’s health or safety or the public’s health or safety;
2.2.3. Where we reasonably suspect that unlawful activity has been, is being or may be engaged in and the use or disclosure is a necessary part of our investigation or in reporting the matter to the relevant authorities;
2.2.4. Where such use or disclosure is required under or authorised by law (for example, to comply with a subpoena, a warrant or other order of a court or legal process);
2.2.5. Where we reasonably believe that the use or disclosure is reasonably necessary for prevention, investigation, prosecution and punishment of crimes or wrongdoings or the preparation for, conduct of, proceedings before any court or tribunal or the implementation of the orders of a court or tribunal by or on behalf of an enforcement body.
