Your Right of Access and Control
Recently the European Union created the General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR) which contains protection requirements applying to all businesses with offices or who have customers specifically in the European Union. Because LICK operates mostly within Australia but also has brand presences that operate overseas, we have decided in good practise that we should become more transparent about the rights our visitors and customers have. These rights are specifically:
Right of Access - You have the right to be consulted if and when personal data is collected or processed.
Right to Rectification - You also have the right to request an immediate amendment to your personal data if it is either factually incorrect or is incorrectly collected from you.
Right to Erasure - You have the right to request the removal of your personal data. (i.e. The right to be 'forgotten'.)
Right to Restrict - You have the right to request temporary or permanent halt to data processing for any or all of your personal information.
Right to Object -
You have the right to object to data processing of personal information on grounds relating to a specific personal circumstance.
You have the right to object to your personal data being processed for marketing purposes.
Right to Data Portability - You have the right to request that a copy be provided to you of any personal data that we have collected pertaining to you and also to transfer that data to another third party service.
Right to Decision - You have the right to not be subject to Automated Decision-making. Where a decision based solely upon the contents of your data (including profiling) where that decision may have a significant or legal effect upon yourself.
You have control over the way we process your data, if at any time you receive electronic marketing material from LICK based on your consent or permitted by any other applicable laws, you can, at any time withdraw such consent or declare your objection ("opt-out") at no cost.
You can find out more about the GDPR rights, here and those rights found in the Australian Privacy Act here.
The Types of Information We May Collect
Personal data by definition within the GDRP is ‘any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person' (Article 4), or in the Australian Privacy Act, ‘information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable' (section 6(1). This information could also be used to contact you.
You do not need to submit personal data in order to use the online services of LICK, however, you may be required to submit some personal information in contacting or communicating with LICK online. Your data may also be collected when making a purchase from LICK online. We may also collect some non-personal information such as your approximate physical location whilst accessing our online services, the browser or operating system used to access our online services and when (or what time) you accessed our online services. This non-personal information is collected without the intervention of LICK (by our host services), however it can be removed on our authority.
The primary use for this information is to measure the number of visits, average time spent or number of views on pages and other statistics regarding our web services. Other outlets where this information is collected may include advertisements on social media (Facebook), videos that have a data collection service attached (YouTube, Facebook, instagram). We also may use this data to monitor our performance on these platforms and hopefully make our online communications more relevant and useful to our customers.

Your personal information may also be used to assess whether or not the aforementioned services may be of interest to you. The information used to identify this will never include information of the 'special categories' outlined in the GDPR, 'which includes personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person's sex life or sexual orientation (Article 9).
