Cross-border disclosure of personal information (Users in Australia Only)
Some Big Girls’s third party service providers may perform certain services overseas. As a result your personal information may be disclosed to a recipient in a foreign country. Under Australian privacy laws, we must take reasonable steps, in the circumstances, before personal information is disclosed to an overseas recipient to ensure that the overseas recipient does not breach Australian privacy laws in relation to that information ("the Obligation").
The Obligation does not apply if you consent to the disclosure of your personal information to an overseas recipient.
By supplying personal information to us, you consent to the disclosure of your personal information to an overseas recipient and agree that the Obligation does not apply.

How long will you keep my personal information for?
Any information that we no longer require is destroyed securely. An exception to this may be retention of the information for data analysis. However, if this occurs, the information will be retained in a form that does not allow you to be identified from that information.
How can I access my personal information?
Under the Privacy Act, you have a right to seek access to information which Big Girls holds about you. You also have the right to ask us to correct information about you which is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.

Online ordering security
Protecting personal and order information is a priority at Big Girls and we take all reasonable measures to do so. As such we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology – Our On-line Ordering system BigCommerce is an industry standard for encryption technology – to protect your online order information. SSL encrypts all information including your credit card and all personal information passed from you to www.Big Girls.com.au. Encryption provides you with security and peace of mind when your browser and local network supports the use of encrypted data transmissions. However, we suggest that you take appropriate security precautions when you access the internet via public WI-FI networks or shared computers.
