The Direct Group, including Damart, Innovations, The Fox Collection, Entertainment Masters, Victoria Hill and Gaiam highly value the strong relationship
we have with our customers; often these relationships have been built up over many years.
The data we collect will be handled sensitively and securely and with proper regard for privacy. Damart, Innovations, The Fox Collection,
Entertainment Masters, Victoria Hill and Gaiam were involved in the development of and fully support the 'National Privacy Principles' launched in December
Collection of Data
We will limit the collection and use of customer information to the minimum we require to deliver superior service to our customers, which includes
advising our customers about our products, services and other opportunities, and to administer our business. We therefore maintain the name, postal
and email addresses, telephone number, payment and order processing information of customers when they order from us. We will not ask you to answer
any intrusive personal questions. The information you provide to us is used for billing and delivery purposes and to measure customer interest in our products.
You may provide us with your email address. We will only ever use your email address so that we can:
(a.) contact you about your order or answer a query, or
(b.) send you special offers from time to time.
If you do not wish to receive emails you may unsubscribe from the option on any email sent or by contacting us. Your email address is private and
we will never sell it to third parties.
Any personal information that you give us is private. We will not release personal information to persons or entities without your explicit consent.
Exceptions to this are:
(a.) where from time to time, we may facilitate offers from reputable companies that have interesting products and services. These companies are
not permitted to retain any customer information unless the customer has specifically expressed interest in their products or services;
(b.) where we are required by law to disclose certain information;
(c.) if you have ordered a product from us that requires personalisation, or delivery to you by an external company;
(d.) you are a member of a reward or other club and your order must be verified so that you will receive your reward/benefit.
Updating your Personal Information
As part of the National Privacy Principles, customers can advise us at any time if:
(a.) do not wish to receive information from reputable companies, or if they
(b.) no longer wish to receive product information from either Damart, Innovations, The Fox Collection, Entertainment Masters, Victoria Hill and Gaiam.
Customers can advise us of either of the above by calling us on 1300 365 555, sending a fax (02 9004 4830) or mail (Reply Paid 61233 Frenchs Forest NSW 2086
no postage stamp required). If a customer advises us that they no longer wish to receive product information from Damart, Innovations, The Fox Collection,
Entertainment Masters, Victoria Hill and Gaiam, we will ensure their name is also never passed to reputable companies with interesting product offers.
We have strict agreements with all other organisations that provide us support services to protect your privacy. These organisations are all compliant
with the National Privacy Principles. Only authorised employees who are trained in the proper handling of customer information have access to that information.
Customers can advise us if any of their information requires updating. Customers may request to see the details we maintain on them in our customer file by
forwarding a signed written request to us.
