What we collect and what we do with the information we gather

We collect the personal information you provide us with such as your name, address, and email address.
When you browse our store, we automatically receive your computer’s IP address which provides information that helps us provide a better experience for our customers.

When you provide personal information during a transaction, sign up for services, verify your credit card, arrange for delivery, or return a product; you consent that we can collect and use the information for that reason. How much of your personal information that you choose to disclose is up to you.

We may send you emails from time to time for new products and other updates; which you can opt-out of by clicking on the unsubscribe link or sending an email to uk@meir.com.au

We may be legally required to disclose your personal information at times, or in order to enforce our terms of use or other policies and agreements if you violate them. Under no circumstances will we sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information. We may share your personal information with any member of our group (i.e. our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries), or with any potential purchaser of our company or business. We may also share your information with business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you.

If you purchase products that require delivery by an external party we will need to disclose your personal information to third parties to bill and or deliver your products. However, the disclosure will only be made where it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which you disclosed your personal information.

We may hold your personal information for up to 10 years and then we will delete it.
