The type of personal information we collect may include your name, address, telephone numbers, email address,
information on how you use our products and services (such as your product preferences, date, time, and information on your browsing activity when visiting one of our websites), and personal preferences. This information permits us to ensure accurate registry and account details, and also helps us develop products and services to suit your needs.
Privacy law requires us to collect personal information about you only from you if it is reasonable and practical to do so.
My Wedding Registry takes measures to ensure your personal information is protected from unauthorised access, loss, misuse, disclosure or alteration. We also take measures to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information when it is no longer required. The types of measures we take vary with the type of information, and how it is collected and stored.
Generally, you have no obligation to provide any information requested by us. If you choose to withhold requested information however, we may not be able to provide you with the goods and services that depend on the collection of that information, particularly if the collection of that information is required by law.

How is personal information used?
The personal information that we ask for is generally used to provide goods or services to you. For example, for a credit card transaction we need your card number, and for a wedding registry we need your wedding details so we can plan delivery and suitability of your registry.
We may also use your personal information in other ways to provide you with superior service. This may include using your personal information to advise you of new products and services. You have the right to tell us that you do not want us to send information to you other than for the main purpose for which we have collected your personal details.
Where possible, we try to ensure that our disclosure of information to other organisations (for example market researchers, and others with whom we have commercial arrangements) is in a way which does not personally identify individuals.

We will provide you with access to any of your personal information we hold (except in the limited circumstances recognised by privacy law).
If you require access to your personal information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call +61 3 9001 0840.
