1. Collecting Personal Information
Uniden may collect information about you from your use of its Website, or where you otherwise provide us with information, such as when you enter into our promotions, competitions, or complete surveys. Uniden will not collect or monitor any personal information about an individual without their consent. The only personal information we may collect is what you volunteer to tell us about yourself, which may include general personal information, and information about your demographics, income, spending habits and potential purchases.
We may use this information for research or to improve Uniden's products and services. We may also use this information for our reasonable business purposes, for example to provide you with information we believe may be of interest, including marketing and promotional material.
If you give us information when you submit an enquiry or complaint, we will first use that information to respond to your enquiry or complaint and may also use such information for our internal corporate purposes, such as monitoring and improving customer service aspects of our Website.
We may also collect data from your use of the Website, such as the date and time you access the site, the type of browser you use and the web site from which you connected to the site. Our Website collects this data by depositing "cookies" in your computer. This process does not collect any information, which personally identifies you and does not have any effect on your computer system. We may analyse and aggregate this data for certain trends and statistics, such as which parts of our Website users are visiting and how long they spend there. We may share this aggregated information, if needed, with our Content Providers in order to enhance the service we can provide to our customers.
We do not wish to obtain personal information from minors who are using our site unsupervised. Thus, we ask minors (being under the age of 18 years) to obtain the consent of their parent or guardian before providing us with any personal information.
2. Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
You acknowledge and consent to the use and disclosure of your personal information in circumstances that are:
(b) clearly explained to you at the time the information is collected from you; or
(c) permitted under the Privacy Principles.
For the purposes described above, information may be shared with other Uniden group companies overseas.
Unless otherwise stated above, we will not disclose your personal information to any third party unless: (a) required to do so by law, regulation or an industry code of practice; or (b) where we reasonably believe that you are engaged in illegal activities.
3. Review and Removal of Personal Information
Uniden will respect your right to request access to personal information we have collected about you and make corrections you deem appropriate. You may also request us in writing to delete your personal information, and all reasonable steps to delete the information will be made, except where it is required to be retained for legal reasons.

4. Information Security
We will take all reasonable steps to store your information securely and take appropriate steps to protect it from misuse and loss, unauthorised access, modification and disclosure. We will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify personal information if it is no longer needed for any purpose.
