Privacy Policy

We take our privacy obligations seriously, and not just because we are bound by the National Privacy Principles (“NPPs”) set out in Schedule 3 of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) ("Act"), as well as all other requirements of the Act, but because we believe you interact with us in good faith that we will respect the information you provide us with and that we’ll use it only for the purposes for which it has been offered. 

In accordance with the NPPs SOME Foods’ policy for collecting and using any personal information that you disclose to use (including while visiting this website) or is disclosed to SOME Foods about you by another party is explained below, and this information comprises SOME Foods’ official Privacy Policy.

  • the previous site visited
  • the type of browser used.

No attempt will be made to identify you or any other users of this website purely by their browsing activities.

Collection of Personal Information via Third Parties

Where possible, SOME Foods attempts to collect personal information about an inpidual solely from that inpidual, however, at times SOME Foods may be supplied with personal information regarding an inpidual by a third party. If you supply SOME Foods with personal information in relation to another person, SOME Foods requires that you seek their consent to this prior to providing this information to SOME Foods.

You must not provide SOME Foods with personal information about another person unless they have given their prior approval to this, and you agree to indemnify SOME Foods against any loss or damage SOME Foods sustains, or costs it incurs as a result of any claims made against SOME Foods or any of its related bodies corporate, if you do not comply with this requirement and provide SOME Foods with personal information about another person without their prior consent.

Your Obligation

You must ensure that any information you provide to SOME Foods is complete, up-to-date and accurate at all times.

How SOME Foods Uses and Handles Personal Information

When you provide SOME Foods with your personal information, or consent to another person giving SOME Foods this information about you, you are consenting to SOME Foods’ use of that information in accordance with the terms and principles set out in this Privacy Policy.

Except where your consent has been provided, or SOME Foods is permitted to do so by the NPPs or the Act, your personal information will only be used for the primary purpose for which it is collected. SOME Foods may expressly communicate this purpose to you, or it may be clear from the nature of SOME Foods’ dealings with you.

SOME Foods may disclose or transfer your personal information where necessary to companies that are “related bodies corporate” of SOME Foods (as defined in the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth)), and in SOME circumstances those related entities may be international entities. SOME Foods will use its reasonable endeavours to not communicate your personal information to an international entity (regardless of whether or not it is a related body corporate of SOME Foods) that is not bound by privacy obligations equivalent or more stringent that the NPPs, or otherwise does not agree to comply with the NPPs and the Act as if they applied to it.

SOME Foods may also disclose or transfer your personal information to other companies or inpiduals who assist SOME Foods in providing its products or services or who perform functions on SOME Foods's behalf (such as direct marking companies, mailing houses, consultants, credit providers and service providers). SOME Foods may also collect personal information from these organisations and inpiduals, and if so, will deal with that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy to the extent applicable.

The SOME Foods website uses the "eWAY" system for payment of products and services ordered online. This system is operated by Web Active Corporation Pty Ltd ACN 086 209 403 trading as eWAY ("eWAY"). When making purchases through the SOME Foods website, SOME Foods will never permanently store your credit card details. Rather, it will transmit the relevant personal and payment information you provide (including credit card details) directly to eWAY, to enable processing of your payment. SOME Foods will make reasonable attempts to ensure that this transmission of your information to eWAY is secure and encrypted. 

All aspects relating to the payment for products of SOME Foods ordered via this website are handled by eWAY, and apart from passing on your payment details to eWay, SOME Foods is in no way involved in the processing of your payment, including the manner in which the information you provide is dealt with to effect payment. eWay has its own privacy policy located on its website, http://www.eway.com.au/about-eway-payment-service-provider/company/privacy-policy.aspx, which sets out how it handles the personal information in the context of its eWAY payment system.

You should carefully review eWAY's privacy policy prior to purchasing any purchasing any goods or services via the SOME Foods website, as SOME Foods is in no way responsible for how eWAY or any other third party use and deal with any personal information you provide to those third parties, including any personal information provided to those third parties (such as eWAY, and whether by you directly or by SOME Foods) in order to purchase goods from SOME Foods via this website.

Protection of Personal Information

Access to any personal information held about you by SOME Foods is restricted to those persons who need to know that information in order to carry out the task for which the information was collected and for the avoidance of doubt includes eWAY, if you wish to purchase products through this website.

SOME Foods makes all reasonable attempts to protect your personal information, by putting physical and internal security measures in place to ensure that your personal information is protected from misuse and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
