Keeping a record of Personal Information
Depending on the product or service you have acquired, it may be necessary to keep a record of the transaction for business purposes or to enable us to respond to your concerns.
We may hold personal information for the following purposes:
- Internal accounting and administration;
- To supply you with information about your account including regular statements;
- To respond to inquiries;
- Enhancing customer service, product options and to improve product performance;
- Promotions, competition entry forms, redemption vouchers and special offers where you have voluntarily supplied your personal details;
- To administer warranty claims and sales records;

Occasionally we require organisations outside Breville to provide a service for purposes, which are necessary for us to conduct our business, functions and activities (for example advertising names of competition winners and delivering products). Some of these organisations may be located outside of Australia. However, we will take all necessary steps to ensure these organisations both inside and outside of Australia deal with Personal Information according to this policy and the Australian Privacy Principles.
