SUPPLEMENT IN RELATION TO THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION
Last updated: July 2018
This supplement applies whenever you visit this website, including any mobile website (together, the “Website”) from a location within the European Union or when a resident of the EU provides personal data to Melrose.
For the purposes of the GDPR, Melrose confirms that the data controller of this Website is Melrose Laboratories Pty Ltd, a company registered under the laws of Australia, whose registered office is located at 16-18 Lionel Road, Mount Waverley, Victoria 3149 Australia.
What personal data does Melrose collect about you and from whom?
Use of your personal data
Where the GDPR applies to the personal data Melrose collects, Melrose uses and processes personal data according to the requirements and restrictions of the GDPR. In particular, Melrose will only use and/or disclose your personal data if Melrose has a permitted lawful basis on which to use and/or disclose your personal data.
Generally, Melrose collects your personal data because it is necessary for:
- performing Melrose’s contract for the provision of products and/or services to you;
- the pursuit of Melrose’s legitimate interests (as detailed further below); or
- complying with Melrose’s legal obligations.
Melrose may also rely on your consent to use your personal data, including for marketing purposes (see “Marketing Communications” below).
You may withdraw your consent to these activities at any time. If you withdraw your consent, unless another lawful basis applies, Melrose will cease to process the affected data. Please note that withdrawal of consent may result in Melrose being unable to provide you with certain features of the Website and/or the products that you have ordered and paid for through the Website.
- for promoting, marketing and advertising Melrose’s products and services;
- for statistical and demographic analysis, in order to understand the behaviour, activities, preferences and needs of Melrose’s customers;
- for improving the Website, to improve existing products and services and to develop new products and services;
- to protect Melrose’s brand, reputation and goodwill in the marketplace, by taking appropriate legal action against third parties who have infringed Melrose’s rights or otherwise are in breach of their legal obligations owed to Melrose;
- to effectively and efficiently handle and resolve any legal claims or regulatory enforcement proceedings taken against Melrose;
- to generally operate the Website and for internal business operations; and
- to monitor and to record telephone calls for training purposes.
Where you have consented to receive marketing communications directly from Melrose, then you agree that Melrose may use your information to contact you by your selected method of communication regarding new products, competitions, events, items or related activities which Melrose anticipates you may find useful, together with communications regarding similar products and services offered by Melrose. Melrose does not sell, trade or rent your personal data to other companies or partners.
You may always revoke that consent at any time by exercising the “unsubscribe” option in any marketing communications which you receive from us.
To whom Melrose discloses your personal data
Generally, Melrose will use its reasonable endeavours to disclose de-identified information to third parties. However, Melrose may disclose personal data it collects to third parties. Such disclosures will occur only on an as-needs basis and only in order to facilitate the fulfilment of one or more of the reasons for which your personal data is being processed.
You agree that if Melrose transfers ownership or management of the Website or of Melrose’s business and/or assets to a third party in the event that Melrose sells, trades or licenses any part of its business or assets, then Melrose may also transfer your personal data or other personal data you provided to Melrose as part of those assets. This includes, but is not limited to, all sensitive personal data and any other information about you.
How long does Melrose keep hold of personal data
Melrose keeps your personal data for as long as it is reasonably necessary to meet the relevant purposes for which Melrose collected your personal data, including for the purpose of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate length of time for holding your personal data, Melrose takes into account the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use and/or disclosure of your personal data, the purpose(s) for Melrose processes your personal data and whether Melrose can achieve those purposes through other means, together with legal requirements imposed on Melrose.
As a general rule, Melrose generally retains personal data relating to products purchased from the Website for up to seven years following the transaction.
Is personal data transferred outside the European Union?
As Melrose is located in Australia, all personal data collected from you will be collected and held in Australia.
Melrose has implemented appropriate safeguards in connection with the protection of personal data transferred from the European Union into Australia, into Melrose’s control. Melrose will use its best endeavours to ensure that any third party recipient located outside the European Union will take steps to safeguard the personal data transferred or disclosed by Melrose to the recipient.
Security of personal data
- to the maximum extent permitted by law, Melrose makes no representation or warranty, nor give any guarantee to you that your access to the Website and/or to the content accessible on the Website will be secure, uninterrupted or error free; and
- data transmission over the internet can be completely secure and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, Melrose cannot give an absolute assurance or guarantee that the information you provide to Melrose will be secure at all times.
Melrose takes reasonable steps to protect the personal data Melrose holds from misuse and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. To prevent unauthorised access, to maintain accuracy, and to ensure proper use of personal information, Melrose has deployed physical, electronic and managerial processes to safeguard and to secure the personal data collected.
