Privacy Policy

1. Privacy protection

Acoustix® Hearing Technologies recognizes and values the importance of privacy protection. Personal information collected to provide our services and products such as email address, contact phone numbers, credit card details and physical addresses is used solely for the purpose of fulfilling and delivering orders and will not be disclosed to any third party.

We will always make sure that we handle your personal information securely and carefully and will only use your personal information when it is necessary for us to deliver you a service or perform other necessary business functions and activities.

In most circumstances we will collect personal information directly from you. We will not use your information for purposes unrelated to the services that we provide, unless your consent is first obtained.

We will always use fair and lawful means of collecting personal information.

2. What personal information do we collect?

Different personal information is collected for different reasons. The personal information collected by us is, in most cases, supplied directly by you to us when you give us your details, such as your name, address, contact details (including phone number, facsimile number or email address), details regarding the services provided to you and records of your communications with us, or when you seek more information from us or provide feedback to us. No additional details will be collected unnecessarily.

3. Why we collect information

We may collect personal information from you allowing us to help you and for a number of reasons including but not limited to:

  • delivering the right professional hearing services to you
  • delivering the right hearing solution and product(s) to you
  • better understanding your requirements and preferences
  • improving our service(s) to you
  • managing our services provided to you
  • providing you with offers via marketing communications that may be of interest or benefit to you, unless requested by you not to receive such information

4. How we collect this information?

The personal information collected by us is in most cases directly supplied to us by you when you give your details to us, or when you request more information from us or provide feedback to us.

We may collect information in a number of ways including:

  • from you when you register your details with us or give us the information
  • when you make a purchase from us

5. Who we may share your information with

We may pass personal details such as your name and address to companies such as debt collecting agencies, call centres, mail houses, other service providers and third party fulfilment contractors.

It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law. We will disclose such information where we have a good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We also reserve the right to share personal information if we believe (in our sole discretion) it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or report illegal activities (including fraud) or situations involving actual or potential threats to the safety of any person or property.

In all circumstances where your personal information is disclosed, we will ensure that these third parties undertake to protect your privacy. We will not sell your personal information to other parties or disclose your personal information other than as set out in this policy.
