Your privacy is very important to us and we will always respect and protect your information as well as complying with the Privacy Act 2020 when dealing with your personal information (personal information is information about an identifiable individual). Baby Factory takes this responsibility seriously and is very careful about how and when your personal information is collected, used and shared. We have structured our web site so that, in general, you can visit the website without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. Once you choose to provide us with any information by which you can be identified, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
Baby Factory has taken all essential measures to make sure that any information you give us, including credit card details, remains private and secure (safe from loss, unauthorised activity or other misuse) and that your payment and registration information is processed with total confidentiality.
When you place orders or access account information, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information, which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally require proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you.
The following should give you a greater understanding on how we collect and use customer information.

Who we may share your information with
When you register your details with us to receive our emails or give us the information and have not advised us to the contrary, you are agreeing that we may use your personal information for the purposes set out in this statement.
We will often need to pass your personal details such as your name and address to companies who perform part of our service delivery & installation.

In these circumstances, Baby Factory will ensure that these third parties undertake to protect your privacy.
Other web sites
Our web site may contain links to enable you to visit other web sites of interest easily. However, once you have used these links to leave our site you should note that we do not have any control over that other web site. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the web site in question.
Changes to our policy
From time to time and in line with customer expectations and legislative changes, our privacy policies and procedures will be reviewed and, if appropriate, updated.
Accessing and correcting your personal information
If you believe that any personal information we hold about you is incorrect or incomplete, please write or email us as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will correct any information which was found to be incorrect promptly.
Before we exercise this right, we will require evidence to confirm that you are the person to whom the personal information relates. If you request a correction, and we think the request is reasonable and we are reasonably able to make the change, we will make the correction. If we do not make the correction, we will take reasonable steps to note on the personal information we hold that you requested the correction.
