WHAT TYPES OF PERSONAL DATA DO WE COLLECT FROM YOU AND HOW DO WE COLLECT IT?
As you use the Website and, in particular, as you provide information and upload files to the Website in order to access the Website's services and/or participate in any consumer promotions, Ferrero may collect and process your Personal Data.
This information may be collected by Ferrero both when you choose to provide it (e.g., when you request any services provided by Ferrero over the Website) or simply by analyzing your behaviour on the Website, including as set out below:
- Data voluntarily provided by users
When creating an account on the Website, you will be asked to provide certain Personal Data such as contact details (e.g. your name, email address, telephone number, country of residence and physical address) and marketing preferences.
Where the Website allows you to register through your personal social media profile, with your prior and revocable consent, we may access the same limited information included in such profile related to your name, age, location, likes, interests, contacts and images.
- Browsing data
The routine operation of the Website, as is standard with any websites on the Internet, involves the use of computer systems and software procedures, which collect information about the Website's users. This transmission is automatic when using Internet communication protocols. Although Ferrero does not collect this information in order to identify users personally, it is still possible that such data may permit a user to be identified, either directly via that information, by using other information collected or through processing and association with further data held by third parties. As such, this information may also be considered Personal Data.
Such data about the use of the Website shall only be used by Ferrero for anonymous, statistical purposes (and not for the purposes of identifying any users) to ensure the correct operation of, and identify any faults and/or abuse related to, the Website. This data may also be used for the purposes of investigating liabilities in the event of information crimes committed against the Website.
- Clickstream Data
Each time you visit the Website our server collects some anonymous information, known as click-stream data, including the type of browser and system you are using, the address of the website you have come from and move to after your visit, the date and time of your visit, and your server's IP address.
We may collect this information for statistical purposes to find out how the Website is used and navigated, including the number of hits, the frequency and duration of visits, most popular session times. We may use this information to evaluate and improve any of our Website's performance, or as necessary to investigate or report any suspected unlawful activity, as required or permitted by law or as reasonably necessary for the activity of an enforcement body.
In this regard, you should ensure that all Personal Data provided to us is complete, accurate and true at the time of provision. Failure on your part to do so may result in our inability to provide you with services you have requested.
WHY DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA? PURPOSES OF PROCESSING AND LEGAL GROUNDS

- Soft Spam
For future marketing, promotional and publicity purposes, by sending you direct e-mail marketing communications regarding products and services provided by Ferrero which are identical or similar to those you have previously requested through the use of the Website. Processing for these purposes is based on Ferrero's legitimate interest in sending you direct e-mail marketing communication regarding products and services provided by Ferrero and which are identical or similar to those you have previously purchased through the Website. You can block these communications, and you will suffer no consequence if you do so (aside from not being able to receive further marketing communications from Ferrero), by objecting through the unsubscribe link provided at the bottom of all such communications.
To create your user profile (individual and/or aggregate profiles) on our Website, by collecting and analyzing information on the preferences you select and choices you make on the Website as well as on your general activities on the Website, through the use of profiling cookies.

All algorithms involved in this processing are regularly tested, to ensure the processing's fairness and control for bias. Processing for this purpose is based on your consent, collected by means of the cookie pop-up banner and/or a specific tick box. You are not required to give consent to Ferrero for use of your Personal Data for this purpose, and you will suffer no consequence if you choose not to (aside from not being able to benefit from greater personalization of your user experience regarding the Website).

Processing for this purpose is necessary to pursue Ferrero's legitimate interests in the development and administration of the Website and to improve the services provided by Ferrero.
Users shall not be required to provide Personal Data to browse public pages of the Website.

DATA TRANSFER OVERSEAS
Personal Data may be transferred outside of Australia to other countries where the premises or the servers of Ferrero or of any of its affiliates or suppliers are located (including Singapore and countries in the European Union), provided that an adequate level of data protection is guaranteed.

In order to comply with laws protecting children's online privacy, Ferrero does not knowingly collect any Personal Data from children under 16. Ferrero takes children's privacy seriously. As such, we would recommend that a parent or guardian assist and guide any children under 16 which may intend to browse the Website or access the services provided by Ferrero. Children under age 16 should not use Ferrero’s Website or services. In the event that Ferrero learns that it has inadvertently collected Personal Data from a child under the age of 16, Ferrero will promptly delete such information.
SECURITY OF PERSONAL DATA
Personal Data collected by Ferrero about you may be stored on servers in Singapore and the European Union and on cloud servers owned by third party cloud service providers.
