It applies to all personal information collected by us, including via and any related Signet website or social media page, and from an individual via any other means, including physically or electronically.

Information you provide to us 

We may collect and hold personal information about you where the information is necessary for us to carry on our business and provide our services. This information is provided by you directly to us, for example when you make a purchase, create an online account, or subscribe to our mailing list. This personal information may include: 

  • Your full name
  • Your contact details including email address, delivery address and phone number
  • Your place of work, job title and ABN
  • Contact preferences
  • Banking details for processing payments at the time of order

Your personal information will be collected in accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act. If the personal information you provide us is incomplete or inaccurate, we may be unable to provide you, or someone else you know, with the products or services that you, or they, are seeking. 

Financial information that is collected via the website or new account application is used by Signet to invoice you for products and services ordered. This information may be collected at the point of order but is processed using a secure gateway therefore this information is not held. 

Information we collect from your use of our website 

When you visit our website, our Internet Service Provider automatically records the following information about you:

  • Device information, including the operating system, preferred language, unique device identifier and mobile network.
  • Location information: if you permit our website to access location services on your mobile device, we may collect the precise location of your device. On desktop computers, the country where you are located is recorded.
  • Website usage: we collect information about how you interact with our website, including the page/s you visit, the time spent on each page, the date and time of your visit, and the website you visited immediately prior to ours.
  • Transaction information: we collect your transaction details when you place an order on our website, including the products you order, the date and time of your order, the address the order will be shipped to, and the total amount charged. 

Method of collection 

Below are some examples of the situations where we may collect your personal information:

  • When you place an order with us for goods and services, we need to know who you are and where you are in order to successfully process your transaction;
  • When you apply for any form of credit, for us to bill you, properly assess an application for credit and to manage your account;
  • When you sign up to our website mailing list;
  • When you participate in any offers, promotions, trade shows, or other marketing activities;

Where possible, we will collect your personal information directly from you by writing, by telephone, in person, through our website, and any other electronic communication channels and take reasonable steps to ensure that the information collected is accurate at the point of collection. We may also collect your information from those authorised to act on your behalf, such as an agent. There may however, be some instances where personal information about you will be collected indirectly because it is unreasonable or impractical to collect personal information directly from you. We will usually notify you about these instances, or where that is not possible, as soon as reasonably practicable after the information has been collected ("post collection notification").

If you apply for any form of credit from us, we may collect and hold various information about you and your financial position, including credit information or credit eligibility information. Except as otherwise permitted by law, we only collect sensitive information about you if you consent to the collection of the information and if the information is reasonably necessary for the performance of our functions, as set out below.

When you provide us with personal information about other individuals it is important that you obtain their consent. We rely on you to inform the individual that you have provided us with their information, the purpose for which it may be used and how they can gain access to their information. 

Purpose of collection  

The personal information that we collect and hold about you depends on your interaction with us.

Generally, we will collect, use and hold your personal information if it is reasonably necessary for or directly related to the performance of our functions and activities and for the purpose of: 

  • Providing you with information about other products and services that we offer that may be of interest to you;
  • Providing you with information relevant to your type of business or other area of expertise or interest;
  • Administrative and accounting purposes;
  • Notification of updated pricing, product information, our developments and service changes;
  • Providing promotional and marketing communication such as special offers and new products;
  • Record-keeping after your account has been deactivated or terminated;
  • Facilitating our internal business operations, including the fulfillment of any legal requirements;
  • Providing you with access to protected areas of our website;
  • Verifying information for accuracy or completeness (including by way of verification with third parties);
  • Combining or supplementing your personal information with information we collect from third parties and use it for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy;
  • Analysing our services and customer needs with a view of improving those services. 


Use and disclosure of information 

Generally, we only use or disclose personal information about you for the primary purpose for which it was collected (as set out above).

We will not sell, rent or lease personal information to a third party, except where consent has been obtained. However, personal information may be transferred to our service providers who can support us in delivering our products and service to you. These service providers include but are not limited to employees, contracted agents, delivery companies, mail houses, web hosting organizations and information technology providers, and third party fulfilment contractors.

Currently, the majority of our service providers are located in Australia however, some service providers may be located overseas, primarily in New Zealand, America, Ukraine, and Germany. As a result, personal information collected and held by us may be transferred overseas in order to fulfill our primary purpose. Please note that Australian law may not apply to some of these entities.

You consent to that disclosure and agree that by giving that consent, APP 8.1 (cross-border disclosure of personal information) no longer applies, and we are not required to take reasonable steps to ensure that the overseas recipient does not breach the APPs in relation to that information. 

Other circumstances where we may use or disclose your personal information: 

  • Where you have provided consent for use or disclosure;
  • Where required by law or law enforcement and government agencies; and
  • Where we reasonably believe that the use or disclosure of personal information can prevent or avoid imminent threat to persons health and safety or the public health and safety.

When we are aware of reasonable grounds to believe serious harm is likely, as soon as practicable, we will notify each of the individuals whose data was breached or who are at risk. This notification will contain information regarding the breach and recommendations of the steps the individual should take.
