Reckitt Benckiser (Australia) Pty Limited (ACN 003 274 655) ("Reckitt Benckiser") respects the privacy of every individual who visits our sites or responds to our interactive advertisements. Reckitt Benckiser is bound by the National Privacy Principles of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). This Privacy Statement outlines the information Reckitt Benckiser will collect and how we will use that information. This Privacy Statement will also instruct you on what to do if you do not want your personal information collected or shared when you visit Reckitt Benckiser sites or respond to our advertisements. We may modify this Privacy Statement from time to time and you should therefore periodically visit this page to be sure that you have read and agree with our most current privacy statement.
Use and Disclosure of Information
Reckitt Benckiser uses the personal and/or sensitive information you provide to conduct its business with you, to facilitate and manage its dealings and relationship with you and for any other purpose for which you disclose your personal and/or sensitive information.
Reckitt Benckiser may disclose your personal information to third parties in the following circumstances:
Information specifically about your health is regarded as being sensitive information. Some of the information Reckitt Benckiser collects may be sensitive information. Reckitt Benckiser will only collect sensitive information from you where this is consented to by you, or if the collection is required by law, and will only share sensitive information with third parties if Reckitt Benckiser has a belief that its use and/or disclosure is necessary to prevent threats to health, life or safety of any individual.
Personally Identifiable Information
Reckitt Benckiser will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (that is, your name, address, telephone number, or email address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily (this includes you filling in forms on our site, reporting a problem or submiting a question or comment through our site).
If you are under 18 years of age, you should make sure that you have your parents permission before you submit any personal identifiable information through this site.
When you provide personally identifiable information to us, we may ask if you want to receive future communication from us, (such as newsletters, emails or other information). You can choose not to receive this communication, if you wish. If you do not want your personally identifiable information collected, please do not submit that information to us. If you have already submitted this information and would like for us to remove it from our records, please contact us on 1800 022 046.
If you do not provide necessary personally identifiable information when requested, we may not be able to provide you with some or all of the products or services you have requested.
In addition to providing you with the service or information you request on our site, your personally identifiable information may also be used to help us track the way you use our sites and our products. We may also combine the information you provide with information that we collect separately, including information you have provided to other organisations (with consent that it can be shared) as well as public information. All of this information will help us, for example, better design our products, web sites and advertisements. In order to do this, we may also share your information with companies who carry out work for us. These companies have agreed to only use your information in the way we tell them and to have procedures in place to protect the information.
If we intend to share your information with a company, other than as set out above, we will contact you first and give you the opportunity to remove your information from our database.
Reckitt Benckiser has no intention of collecting any personally identifiable information (that is, name, address, telephone number, or email address) from individuals under the age of thirteen years. Where appropriate, Reckitt Benckiser will specifically instruct children not to submit such information on our sites or advertisements. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information or sensitive information, a parent or guardian of that child should contact us on 1800 022 046 if they would like this information deleted from our records.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically
In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable information. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet Browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, and the domain name of the site from which you linked to our site or advertisement. We use this information for the purposes of better understanding our customer's interests and to help improve our business and sites.
