Collection of images

From time to time OAKLEY’S will hold events where images are likely to be taken for various promotion and electronic publications such as email campaigns.

Children’s privacy

OAKLEY’S will use particular care in the handling the images and other personal information of children.  Depending on the age and ability of the child to understand our explanation about what is going to happen with their image and to make a truly informed choice, OAKLEY’S will discuss these things with their parent or guardian first.

If OAKLEY’S becomes aware that personal information that has been collected relates to a child without the consent of a parent or guardian, we will use reasonable efforts to:

  • Delete that personal information from its files upon request and as soon as possible; and
  • Ensure where deletion is not possible, that this personal information is not used further for any purpose, nor disclosed further to any third party.

OAKLEY’S will also meet the requirements of any other legislation that protects children.

  • Enter into a contract or MOU which requires the service provider to only use or disclose the information for the purposes of the contract or MOU; and
  • Include special privacy requirements in the contract or MOU, where necessary.

Disclosure of sensitive information

Disclosure of personal information overseas

OAKLEY’S may need to disclose your information to organisations located overseas.  From time to time we may choose to use online solutions located overseas to perform direct marketing, undertake surveys, and store data.  Also, we only disclose your information to these overseas organisations when it is necessary for the services they provide to OAKLEY’S.

When we disclose your information overseas, we are required to take measures to ensure your information is treated in accordance with the standards that apply in Australia.

Quality of personal information

To ensure that the personal information we collect is accurate, up-to-date and complete we:

  • Record information in a consistent format;
  • Where necessary, confirm the accuracy of information we collect from a third party or a public source;
  • Promptly add updated or new personal information to existing records; and
  • Regularly audit our contact lists to check their accuracy.

We also review the quality of personal information before we use or disclose it.

You can ask for access or correction by contacting us and we must respond within 30 days. If you ask, we must give you access to your personal information, and take reasonable steps to correct it if we consider it is incorrect, unless there is a law that allows or requires us not to.

We will ask you to verify your identity before we give you access to your information or correct it, and we will try to make the process as simple as possible. If we refuse to give you access to, or correct, your personal information, we must notify you in writing setting out the reasons.

If we make a correction and we have disclosed the incorrect information to others, you can ask us to tell them about the correction. We must do so unless there is a valid reason not to.

If we refuse to correct your personal information, you can ask us to associate with it (for example, attach or link) a statement that you believe the information is incorrect and why.

Notifiable data breaches

From 19 December 2019, if we become aware of a suspected personal information data breach we will conduct an appropriate assessment to determine if there is a likely risk of serious harm to any individual associated with the data breach. Where we believe there is a likely risk of serious harm, we will notify the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner and any affected individuals in accordance with our obligations under the law.

How to make a complaint

If you wish to complain to us about how we have handled your personal information you should do so in writing. If you need help lodging a complaint, you can contact us.

If we receive a complaint from you about how we have handled your personal information we will determine what (if any) action we should take to resolve the complaint.

If you are not satisfied with our response you may ask for a review by a more senior Management Official (if that has not already happened), or you can access an external dispute resolution service, or apply to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) to have your complaint heard and determined.
