What is Personal Information?

Personal information is information or an opinion about an individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable, whether true or not and whether recorded in material form or not. Sensitive information is a subset of personal information and has the meaning given to it in the Privacy Act.

Sensitive information means information or an opinion about an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade association, membership of a trade union, sexual orientation or practices, criminal record, health, genetic or biometric information.

We do not knowingly collect, hold or use ‘sensitive’ information. If we become aware that such information has inadvertently been collected or is inadvertently held by us, we will destroy it.

What personal information do we collect?

We may collect personal information from you when you order on or subscribe to the Website and through your dealings with us including by telephone, email, SMS, face-to-face and other methods.

Information we collect may include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Your name;
  • Your personal address;
  • Your email address;
  • Your date of birth or other identification which proves to us to our reasonable satisfaction that you are over the age of 18 years;
  • Your payment details including bank details or credit/debit card details; and
  • Other relevant information as required to provide our services.

If your personal details change, it is your responsibility to update DBW with those changes, so that we can keep our records complete, accurate and up to date.

In addition to data collected from your submissions, we may also collect data on your internet behaviour from third parties.

When you access and use our Website we may record and log for statistical purposes certain information about such access and use, including your IP address, the date and time of your visit, the parts of our Website you access during your visit, your actions on our Website.

In situations where we are required to combine personal information about identified or identifiable individuals as provided to us about one customer with personal information about that individual as provided to us by another customer or from publicly available sources, wherever reasonably practicable we will use reliable and verifiable anonymisation and de-identification techniques which ensure that the risk of any individual being reasonably identifiable in relation to the combined personal information is remote.

Where we collect and use personal information about any identifiable individual from a publically available source, we assess whether the collection and use is made in a manner both reasonably contemplated and permitted by the provider of that publicly available source.  Where the collection and use is made in a manner both reasonably contemplated and permitted by the provider of that publicly available source, we rely upon that provider to:

  • comply with relevant national privacy laws applying to the provider’s activities; and
  • to provide the necessary notices as required by relevant national privacy laws to that identifiable individual and to obtain the necessary consents from that individual to permit collection and disclosure by the provider of that publicly available source of that personal information, including disclosure in a manner reasonably contemplated and permitted by the provider of that publicly available source.

As well as collecting information directly from you, there may be occasions when we collect information about you from a third party.  In such instances, we will determine whether we would have been entitled to collect such information from you and where we consider that we would not have been entitled to do so, we will destroy or de-identify such information as soon as reasonably practical.

You do not have to provide us with any personal information if you choose not to, however if you do not provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with our services. If you wish to remain anonymous, do not use the Website.


If you use our Website, some of the personal information may be collected through the use of cookies. Most browsers are set by default to accept cookies.

We will not use or disclose your sensitive information for any other purpose unless the purpose is directly related to the primary purpose for which your sensitive information was collected.  You may opt out of receiving any marketing information by notifying us accordingly, or using any unsubscribe facility we provide for that purpose.

Disclosure of your personal information

We do not sell, rent or trade personal information to or with any other third parties.

We will not otherwise disclose your personal information to any third party unless:

  • that third party is a group or related company of ours, in which case that company will only use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this privacy policy as if a reference in this privacy policy to us included a reference to that company;
  • that third party is a contractor engaged to provide goods or services to us (including goods or services that assist us in providing our Website). This may include disclosure to contractors outside of Australia. Our agreements with such contractors require that they keep your personal information confidential, and that they only use or disclose your personal information for the purposes of providing those goods or services to us. For example, we use Shopify to power our online store. We also use Google analytics to help us understand how our customers use our site, and third party carriers or couriers to deliver our products;
  • such disclosure is in connection with the sale of some or all of our business or assets; or
  • you have consented for us to share the information for this purpose, or the disclosure is authorised by the Privacy Act including:
    • to lessen or prevent a serious threat to life or health;
    • to protect the personal safety of users of our Website or the public;
    • if authorised or required by law;
    • if we have reason to suspect that unlawful activity has been, is being or may be engaged in;
    • to enforce the law or where necessary to investigate a suspected unlawful activity; or where
    • you would reasonably expect or we have told you that your personal information is usually used or disclosed to third parties in this way.

Access and correction of your personal information

We will, on request, provide you with access to the information we hold about you, including for the purpose of correcting or updating that information, unless there is an exception to such disclosure which applies under the APPs.

If you require access to your personal information, please email:

Before we provide you with access to your personal information we will require some proof of identity.

For most requests, your information will be provided free of charge, however, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request requires a substantial effort on our part.

If we refuse to provide you with access to the information, we will provide you with reasons for the refusal and inform you of any exceptions relied upon under the APPs (unless it would be unreasonable to do so).

We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete, and up-to-date whenever we collect or use it. If the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete, irrelevant or out-of-date, please contact us and we will take reasonable steps to either correct this information, or if necessary, discuss alternative action with you.

The security of your personal information is important to DBW. We take reasonable steps to prevent the personal information we hold about you from misuse, interference or loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. This includes the use of technologies and processes such as access control procedures, network firewalls, encryption and physical security to protect the privacy of your personal information.

We will take all reasonable steps to protect the information we hold about you from unauthorised access, use and disclosure, however we cannot guarantee the absolute security of that information, or that our systems will be completely free from third party interception or are incorruptible from viruses. We cannot and do not guarantee that information you send from your computer to us over the Internet will be protected by any form of encryption.
