Why we collect your information (Collection Notice)
At Woolworths Gift Cards, we care deeply about your privacy.
And that means giving you what you need to make informed choices.
We want to make it simple for you to understand how we collect, use and share your personal information, so please read on to find out more.
How and why we collect personal information
We collect personal information such as your name, contact details, gift card number, gift card PIN and payment card details when you visit one of our websites or otherwise engage with Woolworths, for instance when you contact our call centres. We also collect information about the devices that you use to purchase Woolworths Gift Cards. This can include the IP address, device ID and other hardware related information.
First and foremost, we collect the personal information needed to sell and send you Woolworths Gift Cards, and provide you with any support you may need to use them. Without the necessary information, we may not be able to do so.
We typically use your personal information to:
- communicate with you about your purchases
- improve the services we offer you
- seek your feedback
- respond to your enquiries and complaints
- conduct investigations in cases of fraud or data security risks
- improve our business generally, including by monitoring or recording our interactions with you for training purposes
- keep our records accurate and up-to-date
- better understand your needs and identify and market to you other products and services you may find useful
- comply with our legal obligations.
Depending on how you deal with us, it’s possible we may need to collect other types of personal information necessary to deliver you the benefits of Woolworths Gift Cards or respond to your broader needs.
Sharing your personal information
We work with a number of partners and service providers, and we sometimes need to share your personal information with them to bring you Woolworths Gift Cards and the course of doing business. These include IT experts, payment services providers and other third parties who help us maintain our websites.
We may also need to share your personal information with other parts of the Woolworths Group, as required by law or in the context of any legal proceedings to which we are a party.
Should we ever explore the sale of our Woolworths Gift Cards business, we may need to share personal information with potential and final acquirers.
If you have a query or complaint you would like to discuss with Woolworths relating to a privacy matter, you can contact the Woolworths Group Privacy Officer.
