Protecting your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy defines how we collect, handle, process and disclose your Personal Data.

In this Privacy Policy, “we” refers to National Windscreens Pty Ltd ABN 15 006 794 118, its agents, partners, contractors and third parties.

If you do not provide the information requested, we may not be able to provide you with appropriate services or fulfil another applicable purpose.

If you are providing National Windscreens with Personal Data relating to another person, you represent to us that you have obtained their consent to provide their Personal Data to us and that they are aware of who it is being provided to and where they can access a copy of this Privacy Policy.

How will we Use and Disclose your Personal Data?

  • Processing your order and payment for our products or services;
  • Engaging our agents, partners, contractors and third parties to perform windscreen repairs or replacements;
  • Processing refunds in accordance with our Terms and Conditions;

We do not sell or disclose your Personal Data to others for the purpose of allowing them to direct market their products and services.

Email and Text

We may send you an email, SMS or call you via telephone to confirm or amend booking times as required, and to communicate information relating to the services being provided.

Cross-border Disclosure of Personal Data

Some of our service providers are located overseas, which means Personal Data collected and held by National Windscreens may be transferred overseas. As an example, we use service providers located overseas to host our finance and customer relationship management (“CRM”) systems.

How can I Access or Amend my Personal Data?

You may request access to the Personal Data we hold about you or you may request we correct any Personal Data we hold about you if you believe that it is inaccurate or not current. Our contact details are at the end of this Privacy Policy. We will generally provide you with access to the Personal Data we hold about you subject to some exceptions permitted by law.

Storage and Security of your Personal Data

We store Personal Data in a combination of secure computer storage facilities and paper-based files and other records. If you are in contact with our customer service team via telephone, calls will be recorded and backed up. We have taken numerous steps to protect your Personal Data from modification, disclosure, misuse, loss and unauthorised access.
