Further, you warrant that you are the owner or author of any material and are not breaching any third party rights (including confidentiality and intellectual property rights) in your communications with us.
You also acknowledge that Mason Bros undertakes extensive research and development into new products and business opportunities. By submitting material to the Mason Bros web site, you acknowledge that you have no claim against Mason Bros regarding any of its current or future products and materials which appear to be, and which are, based on any material that you have submitted.

your use of or access to this web site or the services;
any breach of the Terms.
This web site may contain links to other web sites (“linked web sites”). Those links are provided for convenience only and may not remain current or be maintained. Mason Bros is not responsible for the content or privacy practices associated with linked web sites. Mason Bros’s links with linked web sites should not be construed as an endorsement, approval or recommendation by us of the owners or operators of those linked web sites, or of any information, graphics, materials, products or services referred to or contained on those linked web sites, unless and to the extent stipulated to the contrary.
Mason Bros only collects personal information which is reasonably necessary for one or more of its functions or activities. For example, we may collect your personal information in order to provide you with our products or services and to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. We may also collect your personal information to protect against fraud or theft and to comply with our obligations under the law. Personal information may include your name, address, telephone number, email address and purchase/supply details.
From time to time, you may be able to deal with us anonymously or by pseudonym, but in some instances if you don’t provide us with certain personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the products or services you want.
The personal information we collect is, in most cases, directly supplied by you when you register your details with us or give us the information, when you place a call, email or otherwise contact us, when you order products or services from us or you supply goods or services to us.
When you visit our website, it will automatically send you a “cookie”. A cookie is a piece of text sent from a web server to your computer, and is used to identify you only by a random number. This information does not personally identify you, but it does tell us that your computer has visited our site and what areas of the site have been browsed. You can decline cookies by adjusting the “accept cookies” setting in your browser, however this may affect the functionality of the website.
Where we collect personal information from third parties, we will only do so if it is unreasonable or impracticable to collect the personal information directly from you and we will take reasonable steps to inform you if and when we do.
When you do provide us with personal information, we will not use or disclose it other than for:
the purpose for which it was provided;
a related purpose that you would reasonably expect us to use the information for;
a purpose required or authorised by law or a court/tribunal order; or
a purpose that you have expressly consented to.
For example, we may use your personal information to contact you to provide you with the information and/or products and services you have requested. We may also store and process that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. We may also use your personal information to protect against fraud or theft and to comply with our obligations under the law.
If we use your personal information for direct marketing purposes, all of the electronic communications we send to you will include an “unsubscribe” link which enables you to opt out of receiving any future direct marketing correspondence.
The information provided by you online may be disclosed to our agents, contractors or third party service providers who provide administrative, telecommunications, computer or other services to us in connection with the operation of our business and this website and who are under duties to Mason Bros to keep such information confidential and secure.
We may also provide third parties with aggregate, de-identified information about visitors to or users of our website.
On occasion, we may disclose personal information to overseas recipients. These overseas recipients are likely to be located in the country or countries in which you are located or to which you have requested us to supply products.
By providing your personal information to Mason Bros, you consent to the disclosure of such information to overseas recipients. Please note that once consent is provided, APP 8.1 will not apply to that disclosure so that, if an overseas recipient handles the personal information in a manner which breaches the APPs, Mason Bros will not be accountable under the Privacy Act for the breach nor will you be able to seek redress under the Privacy Act.
We maintain strict standards and procedures to prevent unauthorised access to your personal information and ensure correct use of information. We will take such steps as reasonable to protect your personal information from unauthorised access or use, misuse, loss, modification or unauthorised disclosure.
Personal information will be de-identified or destroyed when no longer required by us.
You can access and update personal information Mason Bros holds about you by contacting us via the method provided below during normal business hours. We will allow you access unless we consider that there is a sound reason under the APPs or other relevant law to withhold that information. If we refuse to provide you with access or correct the personal information held about you by us, we will provide in writing reasons for such refusal. If we refuse to comply with your request to correct the personal information we hold about you, you are entitled to ask us to associate with the information a statement that the information is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, and we will take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to do so.
If you have questions or complaints regarding the way in which Mason Bros has handled your personal information, or if you wish to access or update your personal information, please contact us at:
Mason Bros Vegetable Farms
1 Masons Lane, Werribee South VIC 3030
Once we have received your enquiry, we will respond to you within a reasonable time. If, after receiving our response, you still consider that your privacy complaint has not been resolved, you may then, for example, take your complaint to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
