At United Images, we recognise that your privacy is important. The Commonwealth Privacy Act 1988 and the National Privacy Principles (NPP's) govern the way in which we must manage your personal information and this policy sets out how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise manage personal information about you.
Information we collect about you
This privacy statement explains how we collect personal information and how we maintain, use and disclose that information. We lawfully collect personal information that is necessary for our business to function. The information we collect and hold will depend upon the products and services you purchase or request. When you make a purchase or submit information for customer registration, the information you provide will only be used to fulfil the purchase or purpose of customer services such as email correspondence, newsletters or special offers.
This privacy statement does not apply to parties that may be linked or associated with our website. Those website owners are responsible for the privacy of the information they collect and should be contacted directly for details of their privacy policies.

We keep a record of one or more of the following types of information about you:
Information that identifies you, such as your name, address, email and phone number to assist with deliveries of our purchases;
Information regarding method/s of payment for purchases;
Personal information will generally be collected directly from you through the use of any of our standard forms, over the internet, via email or through a telephone conversation with you. There may, however, be some instances where personal information about you will be collected indirectly because it is unreasonable or impractical to collect personal information directly from you. We will usually notify you about these instances in advance, or where that is not possible, as soon as reasonably practicable after the information has been collected.
If the personal information you provide to us is incomplete and/or inaccurate, we may be unable to provide you with the services you are seeking.
