1. Collection of Personal Information

The types of personal information that Swipe Collective collects directly from you will depend on the nature of your dealings with us. We only collect the personal information that we need to operate the Swipe Collective business. We may collect your personal information directly from you via email, by post, by phone, in person, at events, through our websites and via our social media accounts.
We may also collect your personal information from other parties if that party has purchased gift vouchers, products or services for you or has invited you to participate in promotions.
The following table sets out the personal information we may collect from you when you deal with us in certain ways and why we need to collect it:

2. Use of Personal Information

The particular purpose for which we collect personal information will either be explained when we collect that information, is set out in this Privacy Policy or will be obvious from the context in which it is collected.
We must only use personal information for the particular purpose we collected it for, or for other purposes that are directly related to that purpose. If we want to use personal information for any other purpose we must obtain your consent.
If we use your personal information to send you information by email (including e-newsletters), we will always give you an opportunity to “unsubscribe”.
In addition to the ways in which we use your personal information in certain circumstances as set out above, we may also use the personal information we collect from you in the following ways:

A. To notify you of Swipe Collective’s upcoming events and promotions.
B. To send important notices, such as communications about purchases, event detail changes and changes to our terms, conditions and policies.
C. To help us create, develop, operate, deliver and improve our products, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.
D. For internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Swipe Collective’s products, services and customer communications.
E. For account and network security purposes.
3. Disclosure of Personal Information

Swipe Collective makes only limited disclosures of personal information. Swipe Collective may disclose your personal information to third parties if required by law or otherwise permitted under the Privacy Act or other local laws. Specific examples of when Swipe Collective may disclose your personal information to third parties are set out below.

We may disclose personal information to external service providers who help us operate or protect our business or the businesses of our clients, for example, IT consultants, insurance advisors, independent contractors, lawyers, accountants and other professional advisors. When Swipe Collective engages external service providers, we require those contractors to comply with contractual privacy obligations that reflect Swipe Collective’s own privacy obligations.
In the event of a re-organisation, merger or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party on a confidential basis.
Swipe Collective does not sell personal information, and unless you otherwise provide us with consent to do so, personal information will never be shared with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

We store personal information provided to us on password-protected electronic devices.
We use platforms such as MailChimp, Keap, shopify, zipify, xero, showit, stripe, paypal, paywhirl, humm (“Third Party Platforms”) in the normal operation of our business. Some of these platforms are based outside of Australia and therefore personal information collected on these platforms may be transmitted and stored on servers outside of Australia.

When providing us with your personal information:
A. You understand and acknowledge that Swipe Collective utilises the Third Party Platforms;

We will retain your personal information for the shortest period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required by law.

If you are based in the European Union, you also have the right, under certain conditions:
A. to request that we erase your personal data;
