Mystery Bean respects the privacy of all visitors to the Site. We are bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cwth) (“the Act”) and the National Privacy Principles (NPPs), which set out a number of principles concerning the collection, storage, use and disclosure of personal information.
Information we collect
We will not collect personal information about you unless the information is voluntarily submitted by you. Personal information means information or an opinion about an individual whose identity is apparent or from which your identity can be reasonably ascertained.
The information about you that we collect through this Site includes your name, address, email address, telephone numbers, gender, age and personal preferences.

If you do not want your information to be used for the purposes mentioned below, please do not provide us the information.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, when you visit our Site, our server attaches a small data file known as a “cookie” to your hard drive. This enables us to analyse usage patterns on our Site in order to tailor it to your needs. Cookies identify your computer to our servers when you visit our Site. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. If you do not wish to accept cookies, you can refuse the transfer of cookies to your computer’s hard drive by adjusting your Internet browser. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s browser. We do not store any information inside cookies.
We may collect information about the date, time and duration of visits and which pages of the Site are most commonly accessed. This information may be used by us to help to improve the Site. We do not link this information back to other information that you have provided to us.
What we do with your personal information?
We will treat any personal information that we receive from you with care and recognise the need for appropriate action to manage and protect any information that you share with us.

We may from time to time disclose the personal information that we receive from you to other related bodies corporate of Mystery Bean, including those that are located outside Australia.
We will not pass on your information for direct marketing purposes to anyone other than the persons or organisations set out above unless you have indicated to us that you would like to receive information about products and services.
