You can trust Kmart Tyre & Auto Service
Last updated: November 2011
At Kmart Tyre & Auto Service, we understand and share our customers' and employees’ concerns about how personal information is collected, used and shared. We want to assure you that we will always handle personal information securely and carefully. We are committed to safeguarding your information; this means that, amongst other things, we will comply with all applicable Australian privacy laws and ensure our team are aware of their obligations.
Why we collect information
We may collect information to deliver products or services to complete other transactions and to better understand our customers’ requirements and preferences. This information enables us to personalise and improve our service and, in particular, to provide offers that are of greater interest or benefit.
How we collect information
When a customer places an order and / or registers their details with us, we store that information for future reference. This saves time when customers shop with us again, as we do not have to re-enter customer details. Sometimes we may add customer’s personal information to information from external sources. This is mainly done to verify the accuracy of the information we have and, again, to personalise and improve our service.
What information do we collect?
The personal information we collect is in most cases supplied when customers register details, place an order or provide feedback to us. Generally, the information we collect includes customer name, address, delivery address, Phone number and e-mail address. We will sometimes obtain other details. Through business partners such as flybuys and GE Capital Finance, who administer our store cards, we also have access to purchasing information.
Who we may share your information with
We will often need to pass personal details such as name and address to companies who are responsible for parts of our service delivery. These include organisations such as major delivery companies, out-sourced call centres, mail houses and third-party fulfilment contractors. In special circumstances – for example, if we should sell our business or a substantial part of our business – your information may be transferred as part of that sale. We will not use customer / employee information for purposes unrelated to the services we provide, unless we first obtain your consent. From time to time, we may provide aggregated and ’de-identified‘ information to other business partners for various purposes.
We will take all reasonable steps to store your personal information securely. Only specific employees in our customer service, marketing, human resources, store systems and IT areas have access to our customers' and employee’s personal information – and only under strict controls and procedures.
