Collection of information

We may collect Personal Information from you in various ways and on various occasions. We may, for example, collect Personal Information when you voluntarily enter a competition or otherwise participate in a promotional activity or complete a customer comment card. On occasion, we may collect demographic or service related information via a customer survey. Unless we contact you to inform you to the contrary, we destroy or de-identify unsolicited information provided to us. We destroy or permanently de-identify all other personal information if it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it is collected.

If we are able to collect your information in a de-identified manner or anonymously for a particular purpose we will do so.

From time to time, we may use Personal Information provided by you to provide you with direct marketing information and competitions about the products and services that we offer. If you do not wish to receive marketing information, please do not hesitate to let us know by unsubscribing on the email or if the materials are not provided to you by email writing to us at our Contact Address below.

We will not share your Personal Information with any unrelated party except under the following circumstances:

• Where a third party, such as a research company or mailing house carries out one of our above noted primary purposes on our behalf and complies with our Privacy Policy or a privacy policy affording equivalent protection as required under the Australian privacy laws.

• Where the third party is a fully trained Jamaica Blue franchisee and needs the information to provide you with a product or service which you would reasonably expect to receive from them (for example, you have won a competition or to receive a free coffee).

• In order to ensure our ability to continue to provide products or services to you.

• If disclosure is required for the purposes of conducting business analysis in order to improve our products or services to you.

• If disclosure is required by the law, court order, to investigate a suspected unlawful activity or misconduct of a serious nature or for the conduct by an enforcement body of enforcement related activities.
