This is the privacy notice of Little Big Shop. In this document, ““we”, “our”, or “us” refers to Little Big Group Pty Ltd registered in Australia with ACN 169 800 757.
Our registered office is at Suite 5.01, Level 5 80 Mount Street North Sydney NSW 2060.
This is a notice to inform you of our policy about all information that we record about you. It covers both information that could identify you and information that could not.
We are extremely concerned to protect your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all users of our web site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party. Our policy is both specific and strict. It complies with Australian law [and with the laws of all jurisdictions of which we are aware]. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, do please tell us.
We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our web site immediately.
Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site.
Here is a list of the information we collect from you, either through our web site or because you give it to us in some other way, and why it is necessary to collect it:
1. Business and personal information
This includes basic identification and contact information, such as your name and contact details and also includes all information given to us in the course of your business and ours, such as information you give us in your capacity as our client. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship. It is not used for any other purpose. We expect you to reciprocate this policy.
This information is used:
to provide you with the services which you request;
for verifying your identity for security purposes;
for marketing our services and products;
information that does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service.
We keep the information, which forms part of our business record for a minimum of six years. That is because we may need it in some way to support a claim or defence in court. That is also the period within which our tax collecting authorities may demand to know it.
2. Marketplace information
When we obtain information from you specifically to enable you to buy a service offered on our website by some other person, we assume that in giving us your information, you are also giving us permission to pass it to the relevant person.
3. Your domain name and e-mail address
This information is recognised by our servers and the pages that you visit are recorded. We shall not under any circumstances, divulge your e-mail address to any person who is not an employee or contractor of ours and who does not need to know, either generally or specifically. This information is used:
to correspond with you or deal with you as you expect;
in a collective way not referable to any particular individual, for the purpose of quality control and improvement of our site;
to send you news about the services to which you have signed up;
to tell you about other of our services or services of sister web sites.
4. Information you post on our website
Information you send to us by posting to a forum or blog or in your advertisement is stored on our servers. We do not specifically use that information except to allow it to be read, but you will see in our terms and conditions that we reserve a right to use it in any way we decide.
5. Website usage information
6. Financial information relating to your credit cards
This information is never taken by us either through our website or otherwise. At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website of PayPal / Braintree / eWay or some other reputable payment service provider. Our staff and contractors are not privy to this information.
7. Note on padlock symbols and other trust marks
Many companies offer certification and an icon or other small graphic to prove to site visitors that the site is safe. We do not store information about your credit card.
8. Credit reference
To assist in combating fraud, we share information with credit reference agencies. In case of disputes, please contact your financial institutions.
9. Third-party advertising
This privacy notice does not cover the information practices of third parties such as advertisers. We suggest you check with them directly for more details about their ad campaign and how it works!
10. Third-party content

Free speech is a fundamental right, so we have to make a judgment as to whose right will be obstructed: yours, or that of the person who posted the content which offends you. If we think, your complaint is without any basis, no action will taken.
11. Information we obtain from third parties
Although we do not disclose your personal information to any third party (except as set out in this notice), we do receive data that is indirectly made up of your personal information, from software services such as Google Analytics and others. No such information is identifiable to you.

It is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of every person who might see your information. If it is available to all the World, neither we nor you have control as to how it is used.
