Privacy Policy

Mumme Tools Privacy Policy Statement

  1. Mumme Tools Privacy Commitment

    Mumme Tools Pty Ltd ('Mumme') and its related companies ('we', 'us' and 'our') are committed to the protection of your personal information, and handle all personal information in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles ('APPs') prescribed in the Commonwealth Privacy Act 1988 ('Act').

    This Policy explains in general terms how we collect, store, use and disclose your personal information, and your rights of access to, and correction of, the information that we hold about you. Employee records that are exempt under the Act are not subject to this Policy.

    We may amend this Policy from time to time to reflect changes in the law, our business practices or other relevant factors. Please visit our website at or contact the Mumme Privacy Officer to obtain the latest version of the Privacy Policy.

  2. Collection of Personal Information

    We only collect personal information which is necessary for our business functions or activities, including (amongst others):

    1. providing you and your company with our goods and services;
    2. answering your enquiries and providing you with information you may have requested; and
    3. providing you (or your company) with information that we consider is relevant.

    In general, the types of information we will collect from you include your name, address and contact details (including telephone number, facsimile number and email address), credit card details and if relevant, your employer's name (for example, if placing an order on behalf of your employer). With your consent, we may also collect details of your trade union or association memberships to determine eligibility for discounts that may apply.

    We will collect personal information from you by way of written forms, other correspondence (including facsimiles, letters and emails), by telephone, in person, by our representative and via our website. We may also collect personal information about you from third parties, including but not limited to market research companies contracted by us.

    We will always use fair and lawful means for collecting your personal information. At the time of collecting personal information we will inform you generally about the purpose of collection, who we will disclose the information to, any law that requires us to collect the information and the main consequences if you do not provide all information requested. For example, in some cases, if you do not provide all of the personal information that we require we may be unable to provide you with the products and services you are seeking. We will enable you to interact anonymously, or pseudonymously whenever possible, practicable and lawful.

  3. Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

    We may use and disclose your personal information for the primary purpose for which the information was collected and for other related purposes that you would reasonably expect.

    Generally, these purposes include providing you with our products and services, providing you with marketing information or offers regarding other products and services of the Mumme Group, conducting marketing and other promotional activities, and obtaining your feedback on our products and services.

    We may exchange personal information between the Mumme Group companies, including those entities overseas. Where we do disclose your personal information outside of Australia, the countries in which such recipients are likely to be located are the United States of America.

    We may also disclose personal information to our agents and contractors that provide us with services for these purposes, or perform business services or functions on our behalf. In doing so, for the protection of your personal information, we will ensure that these third parties are bound by, or contractually required to uphold, the standards of the APPs. We will not provide your personal information outside the Mumme Group for the purpose of another party using your information to market, offer or sell their products to you.

    Apart from the above disclosures, we will otherwise only use and disclose personal information with your consent (unless such uses and disclosures are required or permitted by law, including without limitation those prescribed by the APPs).

  4. Storage and Security

    We take reasonable steps to securely store your personal information to ensure it is protected from interference, loss, misuse or unauthorised access, disclosure or modification. We safeguard your information through written privacy policies and physical, electronic and procedural protection. Information is destroyed or permanently de-identified when it is no longer needed for any purpose for which it was collected.

    If you provide us with your personal information via our website at we cannot guarantee the privacy or security of that information during transmission. Once we receive that personal information, we will take reasonable steps to securely store your personal information to ensure it is protected from interference, loss, misuse or unauthorised access, disclosure or modification.
