Personal information which we collect, and hold is stored within our locally housed data servers in Amazon Web Server Sydney Australia. We utilise some cloud-based service providers for specific functions such as email and accounts, who may store certain information on our behalf on servers based in the USA.
Some of the third parties with whom we share personal information may be located outside Australia. While such third parties will often be subject to privacy and confidentiality obligations, you accept that where lawful, such obligations may differ from and be less stringent than the requirements of the privacy laws of Australia.
For UK/EU Residents, this means
that your personal data will almost certainly be transferred outside of the
European Economic Area (“EEA”) when it is provided to us as we are based in
Australia. Where your personal data is
transferred by us to anyone else, it will only be done with relevant
protections in place; i.e. to countries that have been identified as providing
adequate protection for EEA data, or to a third party where we have approved
transfer mechanisms in place to protect your personal data if applicable –
i.e., by entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses,
or by ensuring the entity is Privacy Shield certified (for transfers to
US-based third parties).

provided to the Company because of a product purchase, warranty
registration, product service experience, or other transactions.

However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your personal information collected or used in this way.

long as you retain an account with us, or until you notify us that you no
longer wish to hold your account or until you request that we erase your data.
We are required to keep some of
your information for certain periods of time under applicable law, for example
for 7 years or otherwise for the provision of legal services. We may also need
