Privacy Policy

This Policy was last updated on 4 May 2017.

Tzukuri is committed to protecting the personal information that we may collect and hold about you. Information about yourself, and your metadata, are critical to the services we provide. This Policy sets out our procedures relating to management of your personal information. We are not an APP entity for the purposes of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).

By voluntarily supplying us with your personal information, you are agreeing to be bound by this Policy.

Any amendments to this Policy will be notified to you by posting an updated version on our website.

Please note that our website contains links to other websites. When a user has clicked on a link to another site, they leave our site and are no longer protected by this Policy.

Collection of personal information

Tzukuri is a highly personal product, requiring access to information about your location, physical movement, physical environment, device and operating system, application usage patterns and Bluetooth history to function properly. Without it we wouldn't be able to provide the product we do.

The personal information we may collect and hold about you includes:

  • contact information such as your name and address, phone number and email address
  • financial information, including bank account details and credit card details
  • business details, including ABN
  • your location (GPS)

We also collect and hold non-personally identifiable information, such as:

  • information about your phone, including iOS version, and iPhone model
  • motion activity data (step count, motion type)
  • raw sensor data collected in your environment (magnetometer, accelerometer)
  • application usage patterns
  • Bluetooth data from your glasses including signal strength and connection/disconnection times

Cookies and Analytics

We use "cookies" and website analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) to help improve your experience using the Tzukuri site, help us target advertising effectively, and give us insight into who is using the site and how. An example of some of the data collected by website analytic systems includes:

  • your IP address
  • the date and time of your visit to the site
  • the pages you accessed
  • the previous site you have visited
  • the type of browser you are using
  • the URL you visited

We share some of this information (as little as possible) with third parties - Google Analytics, AdRoll, Mouseflow, ExitBee, Sentry, and others - for support and analytics (such as helping us fix bugs, and letting us know which pages and features people interact with most), advertising and marketing purposes. By using the Tzukuri site you consent to the processing of your metadata by these services.

Some of these services are used by Tzukuri to provide targeted advertising. If you would like to opt out of targeted advertising, you can visit one of these sites:

Means of collection of personal information

Your personal information may be collected in a number of ways, including:

  • through the Tzukuri app
  • when you use our website or complete a form on our website
  • directly by our staff when you seek, or enquire about, our products

You need not provide all the information requested by us, but this may prevent us from providing some or all of our goods or services to you.

Use, disclosure & purpose

We collect, hold and disclose your personal information for the following purposes:

  • as a necessary part of providing our goods to you
  • to promote and market our products and services to you or provide you with information that we believe may be of interest to you (unless as directed otherwise)
  • to store your data to display back to you, such as the location of your glasses
  • to personalise and customise your experiences with our website and products
  • to help us research the needs of our customers and to market our goods and services with a better understanding of your needs and the needs of customers generally
  • other purposes related to any of the above

We will only use your information for the purposes for which it was collected or a purpose related to the primary purpose if this use would be reasonably expected by you, or otherwise, with your consent.

We may disclose your information to necessary third parties who assist us to provide, manage, and administer our goods and services. Information provided to third parties will be dealt with in accordance with that entity’s privacy policy. People we may disclose your information to include:

  • third parties that provide goods and services to us or through us
  • third parties such as marketing and digital agencies who may send you our newsletters on our behalf
  • our website host or software application providers
  • other organisations listed as trade references in a credit application

We may disclose your personal information to overseas third parties located in Singapore, the United States and the European Union for the purposes of storing data.

Your location information is never shared with anyone else unless required by law, and in situations where there is a serious threat to health and safety.

Quality, access to & correction of information

Your personal information is yours, and you are entitled to have access to it and seek corrections to it. We require that requests for access be made in writing to the Privacy Officer via the details provided in this Policy. For your security we will take appropriate steps to verify your identity (or verify that you act as an authorised agent of the individual concerned) before granting a request to access any information.

We will respond to your request for access within a reasonable time after you make the request, and if access is granted, you will be provided your information within 30 days from your request. We will, on request, provide you with access to your personal information, or update or correct your personal information, unless we are lawfully excluded from granting your request.

If we can’t provide you with access to your information or update your data, we will provide you with a written notice detailing reasons for the refusal and the process for making a complaint about the refusal.

Storage and security

Your personal information is stored encrypted on our servers, and can only be accessed by employees who need access to the data to perform their role. All personal information is protected by safeguards including physical, technical and procedural methods.

We take reasonable steps to hold information securely in electronic or physical form. We are committed to keeping secure the data you provide to us and we will take all reasonable precautions to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, interference, unauthorised access or alteration.

We aim to achieve this through:

  • imposing confidentiality requirements on our employees
  • implementing policies in relation to document storage security
  • implementing security measures to govern access to our systems
  • only providing access to personal information once proper identification has been given
  • controlling access to our premises
  • implementing website protection measures

Dealing with us anonymously

Where lawful and practicable to do so, you can deal with us anonymously or using a pseudonym. You can deal with us anonymously or using a pseudonym when making a general enquiry about the goods and services that we can offer to you including via telephone or our website.

At the time you purchase our goods or engage our services, it is no longer practicable for you to deal with us anonymously or using a pseudonym – credit card transactions and shipping bills need to be made out to real people. After you’ve received your Tzukuri’s you’re more than welcome to deal with us using a pseudonym again, however - we don’t mind if your glasses are registered to Mr Smith or Mr Squiggle.
