NAOS is a skincare company that is a cohesive system of three skin-inspired brands. Your privacy is important to us and we are committed to protecting your privacy in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), which includes the Australian Privacy Principles and any related privacy codes.
This Policy outlines how we collect, use, disclose and store your personal information and lets you know how you can access that information. This Policy applies to you if you provide us with personal information, for example if you are a customer or a contractor of NAOS.
Please read this Policy carefully and contact us using the details below if you have questions.
By providing personal information, you consent to us collecting, using, storing and disclosing your personal information in accordance with this Policy or as required or permitted by law. If you continue using our services, then we will treat your use as your consent to us handling your personal information in accordance with this Policy.
- What kinds of personal information do we collect and hold?
The type of personal information we collect depends on the circumstances of its collection and the nature of your dealings with us.
If you are an individual engaging us, this information may include:
- your name, residential address, email address and contact details;

- information contained in any communications between you and us.
If you are a contractor, we may collect the following information:
- your name, address and contact details;
- business registration details, such as your Australian Business Number; and
- billing and payment information.
If you choose not to provide information as requested, it may not be practicable for us to service your needs. For example, it will not be possible for us to process an online payment if you want to remain anonymous or use a pseudonym. We sometimes receive unsolicited personal information. In circumstances where we receive unsolicited personal information we will usually destroy or de-identify the information as soon as practicable if it is lawful and reasonable to do so unless the unsolicited personal information is reasonably necessary for, or directly related to, our functions or activities.
- Why do we collect your personal information?
We collect your personal information primarily to provide you with our products and services and enable your use of our website.
Some ways we use your personal information are:
- for the purpose for which the personal information was originally collected;
- to identify and interact with you;
- to perform administrative and operational functions;
- to comply with any legal requirements, including any purpose authorised or required by an Australian law, court or tribunal; and

In relation to the personal information of contractors or prospective staff members, we collect personal information for purposes including to:
- enable us to carry out our recruitment functions;

You give it to us
We collect personal information directly from you when you:

- communicate with us.
We collect it
We may also collect your personal information from third parties including:
- service providers;
- referrals who may have referred you to us; and

We will generally obtain consent from the owner of personal information to collect their personal information. Consent will usually be provided in writing; however, sometimes it may be provided orally or may be implied through a person’s conduct. We endeavour to only ask for your personal information if it is reasonably necessary for the activities that you are seeking to be involved in.
- Disclosing your personal information
We may disclose your personal information to the following third parties:
- our business or commercial partners;
- our professional advisers, dealers and agents;
- third parties and contractors who provide services to us, including customer enquiries and support services, IT service providers, data storage, webhosting and server providers, marketing and advertising organisations, payment processing service providers;
- third parties to collect and process data, such as Intercom, Amazon Web Services and Google Analytics; and
- any third parties authorised by you to receive information held by us.
If you are a contractor, we may disclose your information to payment system operators and debt-recovery functions.
We may also disclose personal information if we are required, authorised or permitted by law.
We may send information to third parties that are located overseas. These third parties are located in France, Hong Kong and Singapore, although this list may change from time to time. Disclosure is made to the extent that it is necessary to perform our functions or activities.
- Using your personal information for direct marketing
From time to time, and in support of our future development and growth, we or our business partners may use your personal information to contact you to promote and market our products and services.
You can opt-out from being contacted for direct marketing purposes by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the unsubscribe facility included in each direct marketing communication we send. Once we have a request to opt out from receiving marketing information, we will stop sending such information within a reasonable amount of time.
We take all reasonable steps to protect personal information under our control from misuse, interference and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We hold your personal information electronically in secure databases operated by our third-party service providers.
We protect the personal information we hold through login password protocols, secure and access-controlled premises, auditing, and network segregation for sensitive information store electronically.
While we take reasonable steps to ensure your personal information is protected from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure, security measures over the internet can never be guaranteed.
- Accessing or correcting your personal information
If you would like to access your personal information, please contact us using the details below. In certain circumstances, we may not be able to give you access to your personal information in which case we will write to you to explain why we cannot comply with your request.
We try to ensure any personal information we hold about you is accurate, up-to-date, complete and relevant. If you believe the personal information we hold about you should be updated, please contact us using the details below and we will take reasonable steps to ensure it is corrected if appropriate.
- Destroying or de-identifying personal information
We destroy or de-identify personal information when we no longer need it, unless we are otherwise required or authorised by law to retain the information.
