When you trust Loop Coffee with your personal information, we understand that you would expect us to protect it and keep it safe. We are committed to protecting the privacy and personal information of our customers.
We are bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) and will protect your personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act and the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs). The APPs govern how we can collect, use, hold and disclose your personal information, as well as ensuring the quality and security of your personal information.
This Policy applies in respect of Loop Coffee and includes details relating to the handling of your personal information. By visiting this website, you are accepting the practices described in this policy.
Please also visit our website regularly as we update this policy from time to time.
Personal information includes any information or opinion, about an identified individual or an individual who can be reasonably identified from their information. The information or opinion will still be personal information whether it is true or not and regardless of whether we have kept a record of it.
The information that we seek to collect about you will depend on the products or services that we provide. If you do not allow us to collect all of the information we request, we may not be able to deliver all of those services effectively.
When you purchase our products or services we may ask for your personal information. This could include your name, address, contact details, date of birth or any other personal information we collect as part of a transaction or you provide when you contact us.
Throughout the life of your product or service, we may collect and hold additional personal information about you.
The collection of sensitive information is restricted by the Privacy Act. This includes information about your religion, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, criminal record, and sexual orientation.
When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, it is implied that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
You may withdraw your consent for us to contact you for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We collect most personal information directly from you. For example, we will collect your personal information when you purchase a product or service or talk to us in person, over the phone or through other forms of communication including (but not limited to) email, SMS, social media, applications.
We also collect information from you electronically. When you use our website, mobile or tablet applications, we may collect information about your location or activity including the date of time of visits, which pages are viewed, how you as the user navigate through the website and interact with the web pages (including fields completed in forms and applications), IP address, telephone number, information about the device used to visit our website and whether you’ve accessed third party sites. Some of this website information we collect using Cookies.
So that we can better tailor information and products to your needs, when we send you email messages, we may use technology to identify you so that we can know when you have opened the email or clicked on a particular link in the email.
If you use our website, we may collect information from you to confirm your identity. When you ring us, we may also monitor and/or record telephone calls for the purposes of staff training and to verify statements made during the phone call.
Our store is hosted by Shopify, Inc. (Shopify). Shopify provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. Shopify store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with an AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the PCI-DSS. Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

Loop Coffee may use the information it collects from you for the primary purpose for which it is collected and for such other purposes that are in some way related to the primary purpose of collection. In general terms, Loop Coffee may use personal information for the following purposes:

Information about our customers is important for us to provide our customers with the best products and services possible.
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction (e.g. USA), than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider, or its facilities, are located.
