We collect the personal information you give us in a number of ways such as online, by email, post and facsimile or over the phone. Personal information such as your username and password, your name, your mailing address, email address, and phone number will be collected when you first register with us. Financial information such as your credit card number and billing address is collected so we can process transactions and provide you with products and services. StageGear is a wholesaler of dance costumes and we only sell to dance studio owners. When you request a catalogue from us you must also provide your businesses website address for verification purposes. If your business does not have a satisfactory website, then we may also ask you for a copy of your Australian Business Registration Certificate or similar business documentation. A copy of your current Driver Licence may be requested if you ask for your home address to be used as your mailing address. If you consent to give us a copy of your Driver Licence we will not disclose any sensitive information to any third parties. You may always choose not to provide personal information, but if you so choose, certain products and services may not be available to you.
We use the personal information you have given us for purposes which are consistent with the reason you provided the personal information, or for a directly related purpose. Such purposes for which we may use your personal information include:
We may also use your personal information where you have consented to the use, either expressly or by implication.
We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information to or with any third parties. We may disclose your personal information to external service providers in the circumstances discussed below. We may share your personal information with external service providers who perform services on our behalf. For example, we may hire other companies to handle the processing of payments, to provide data storage, to host websites, to fulfil orders and shipments, to assist in direct marketing, to conduct audits, etc. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to provide the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. Some of these service providers may be overseas such as in the USA. We will take such steps as are reasonable to make sure they do not breach the privacy principles that govern our collection of your personal information. We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or protect the rights, property or safety of StageGear, employees, customers, or the public.
We may send you surveys or marketing communications to inform you of new products or services or other information that may be of interest. If you do not want to receive direct marketing communications from either us or a third party, it is easy to opt out. You can follow the "unsubscribe" instructions included within each email communication or you can send us an email request at email@example.com. Please keep in mind that, if you choose not to receive marketing communications, you will continue to receive transactional or account communications (e.g. confirmation emails and account balance statements).
Personal information that we collect may be stored and processed in Australia and/or overseas countries. We take all reasonable steps to protect personal information no matter what country it is stored in. However, information collected may be retained, and may be stored, processed, accessed, and used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of in Australia. When you use this site or give us the personal information requested, you consent to any such transfer, processing and storage of personal information outside of Australia.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow accepted industry standards to help protect your personal information. For instance, when you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security and any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. If a password is used to protect your account and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential and to change it if you think it has been compromised. StageGear recommends that you change your password when you first log in and then on a regular basis to maintain its security.
We do not intend to solicit or collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18, you should not use or enter information on this site.
We may link to websites, including those of our third-party content providers and social media sites. Our website may contain social media features such as Facebook "Like" buttons. These features may collect information about your device's IP address, set cookies or link you to a social media website where you may post personal information. The sites of our third-party providers and social media sites may have different privacy policies and practices from those disclosed here. We assume no responsibility for the policies or practices of such sites and encourage you to become acquainted with them prior to use.
