Your personal information is treated with the greatest of care. Sensitive information such as credit card details, as well as customer login credentials, are NEVER stored or transmitted in a non-encrypted form, with the strongest commercially available cryptography applied to protect it. All our systems are constantly security monitored and checked for the latest vulnerabilities and malware threats. We treat all customer information as confidential and restrict access to it for authorized and vetted personnel only. Physical access is restricted by providing secure data storage facilities. Although no one can guarantee that a compromise of our systems will never take place, we have taken significant measures to protect your information.
The personal information we collect from you and hold includes information that is necessary for us to offer goods or services to you, and to deliver these goods and services. This includes your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address.
We collect personal information directly from you, and occasionally via third party suppliers. We may also collect personal information directly from you when you contact us (for example, when you make a telephone enquiry) and when you use ozsale.com.au or our mobile application.
Personal information is also collected directly from you via a series of forms which you complete including:
a) Membership Registration
UGG Specialist registration form requires you to provide us contact information (email address) and may occasionally require demographic information. You may withhold certain information if you wish to do so, such as your real name when acting under a pseudonym. We do not require any other personal information at this stage.
You are responsible for all actions taken with your user name, email address and password. Therefore, we do not recommend that you disclose your UGG Specialist password to any third parties either on purpose or by accident (for example, by writing it down where it can be seen by others, or by having it saved at someone else’s computer or phone). We strongly discourage you from using the same password for online services provided by other vendors. We also recommend changing your password once in three months.
c) Address and telephone number
When you place an order on our website or via our mobile Apps we will require you to insert your address, telephone number, and any other information relevant to your order, including your payment information and information about your payment method. We may require you to provide us with your full name and not rely on any pseudonym you may have used to access the website. We will require your full postal address and when we are unable to rely on or deliver to a P.O. Box. We also require your telephone number to contact you regarding the order or service that you have purchased, or for other reasons.
Personal information from third parties
Personal information that we collect via third parties is information that you have consented to share with us. For example, if you choose to login to our website using a third party login service such as “login with Facebook”, then you consent to share your basic information with us. This basic information includes your name, e-mail address, gender, and date of birth.
We may require further personal information and will prompt you to supply us with that information (such as your address and contact details) when you place an order.

Security/Fraud Prevention Tips
While UGG Specialist web store takes numerous precautions to protect security and confidentiality of your personal information, many customers ask what steps they can take to further ensure their account security. Below are recommended tips to help you avoid fraud or identity theft:
After you have finished your secure online session, you should always use the Log Off link to end your session. After you log off, no further transactions can be conducted without re-entering your username and password.
Please beware of suspicious E-mails or other suspicious inquiries. Never provide your username or password to anyone who contacts you unsolicited, whether by E-mail, any other online means, or on the phone. It is always safer to type in officialugg.com.au URL, or use your browser Bookmarks, than visit our site by clicking a link provided in an E-mail or any other message, even if it appears to be a valid advertisement message from GUG Australia Pty Ltd group.
UGG Specialist mostly uses “session” cookies, which are removed from your computer once you leave UGG Specialist. These are used so that our service can remember that you have logged in and remove the inconvenience of having to log in frequently. The technology we employ (Microsoft .NET) requires the use of session cookies. Session cookies expire and are deleted after 30 minutes of no activity on UGG Specialist.
UGG Specialist also uses persistent cookies to personalise user experience, to help protecting our members, and to provide us with research information (such as how often our members visit UGG Specialist each month).
