How we collect and use information
The Harmonic collects personal information when you create an account, place an order, respond to a promotional offer, or register for The Harmonic’s email subscription.
The kinds of personal information collected by The Harmonic include your name, telephone number, email address, address, date of birth and credit card or Paypal information.
This information is used to set up your customer account, process and fulfil your order, record your order history and where you have opted-in, to keep you informed with relevant consumer notifications about our company and products, stockists, offers, promotions, sales, and any other news or activities that may interest you. We also use your details to ensure a high level of customer service is maintained in processing orders and ensuring a timely delivery.
When you submit feedback or questions via email, or contact us for information about our website, we will request your name and email address. We use this information solely to respond to your enquiries.
You can unsubscribe from our mailing list and direct marketing activity at any time that you request. For UK + EU residents, you can also withdraw your consent or restrict or object to our use of your data at any time by contacting us at email@example.com. You will not be contacted via telephone for any reason other than your order status, clarification on an order to deliver an order, or unless you have otherwise specifically requested.
You are not obliged to provide your personal information; however, the consequences of a failure to provide your information could result in us being unable to fulfil your order. If you do not consent to us using your information for marketing purposes or unsubscribe, then there is no consequence to you other than not receiving updates regarding any sales or other news or activities that may interest you.
We do not collect personal information when you visit our site unless you log on, place an order or register an account with us.
We may be required to use or retain your personal information to comply with our legal obligations, including for tax purposes. We may also use your personal information in our legitimate interests as part of our measures to prevent and detect any misuse of the website or any fraudulent activities carried out through the website, as well as to analyse, enhance the website, evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing activities and services and perform statistical and demographic analysis of our customers.

We only share information which is absolutely necessary with those third parties that are involved in the processing of your order.
We may also disclose your information to:

We do not disclose or transfer your personal information to any country outside of Australia.
How long we hold your information
Except if your information is required to be retained under an Australian law, or a court / tribunal order, we will hold your information for as long as you retain an account with us, or until you notify us that you no longer wish to hold your account or, for EU + UK residents, until you request that we erase your data.
