We will not collect any Personal Information from you unless you choose to provide it to us. Personal information is only collected when it is reasonably necessary for, or directly related to, one or more of the activities or services we provide.
When you make a purchase from New Balance, request to join our mailing list or sign up for email offers we collect necessary Personal Information that you have volunteered. Your submission of this Personal Information is entirely voluntary. You may elect not to provide this Personal Information, or to de-identify yourself through the use a pseudonym, however, some of the services and/or features available on and/or through the Service may not be available for your use. For example, it may be impracticable for us to transact with you for the purchase of product or the provision of other services if you have not identified yourself, or do so through the use of a pseudonym.
We also collect Personal Information when you elect to submit such information to us when you register for "My Account", participate in a contest, event or sweepstakes promotion, fill out a survey, or contact us (for example via email).
(b) Information not Personally Identifiable
Like most websites, every time you visit our Service, we automatically collect information from you that is not Personal Information. Examples of this type of information include:
- The type of Internet browser you are using
- The type of computer operating system you are using
- Your computer’s IP address
- The domain name of your Internet service provider
- The Web page from which you came
- The pages you visit on our website
You can visit many of our Web pages without providing us with any Personal Information. When you visit the Service, we may track your visit and, as described below in the section concerning "cookies", collect certain data regarding your use of the Service and your activity on the Service. You may elect to limit this process of collection of this type of information, as described in the "cookies" section below.

New Balance does not collect any "Sensitive Information" such as information about your race, political opinion, memberships or political associations, religious beliefs, philosophical beliefs, memberships of professional or trade associations, trade unions, sexual preferences, criminal records, health records or genetic information.

- Customize your communications and shopping experience
- Process your purchase, confirm your orders and communicate to you about account information or customer service needs
- Adapt the content and layout of our pages tailored to your needs and so you do not have to enter information more than once
- Notify you about our new products and services, special offerings and other promotions
- Coordinate contests, promotions, surveys or other website features
- Improve our business and better respond to your needs
- For any other purpose for which you provided your Personal Information
New Balance will take all reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify Personal Information if it no longer needs the information, unless the Personal Information is contained in Commonwealth records, or we are required under Australian law or Court order to retain the information.
The Personal Information we receive from you will only be used for the particular purpose for which you provided it, and will not be used by New Balance for any secondary purpose, unless you consent to that use or the disclosure is required or authorized by Australian Law or a court/tribunal order or if it is reasonably necessary for the enforcement activities of an enforcement body.
Sharing of Information
We may use your Personal Information in the aggregate for purposes such as reporting and marketing. Such use of Personal Information in the aggregate is not personally identifiable.
We may disclose Personal Information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, when required by law, to enforce our website policies, or to protect our or others' rights, property, or safety. We may also share Personal Information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation.

New Balance takes all reasonable steps to ensure that any overseas recipient of any Personal Information will hold and use that information in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principle, or the equivalent provisions in the country in which they are located.
Information posted on public areas of the Service
If we determine that it is not reasonably necessary for, or directly related to, one or more of our activities then we will either destroy, remove or de-identify the information as soon as practicable.
If the Unsolicited Personal Information is supplied by a third party, then we will notify you of the collection of that information and the steps that have been taken in relation to that information.
Any Unsolicited Personal Information you post and/or disclose in a public forum in the public areas of the Service shall be deemed to be non-confidential, as it may be publicly viewable.
You should use your discretion to exercise caution before you post Personal Information in public forums, such as the NB blog. Once you release your Personal Information for posting on public forums, New Balance is not responsible for the privacy and/or security of such information, other than that required under the Australian Privacy Principles or at law.
Protecting your information
We have a variety of security measures to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your Personal Information that we have collected from you from the Service. To ensure the information you provide online is secure during transmission, we use leading edge encryption technology and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) while processing any Personal Information you supply.
These controls are certified by VeriSign®, a leading Internet security company. You can review our security certificate using your browser by clicking on the closed lock or solid key image at the bottom of your browser on any of the secure pages on our site. This will display our Service security information.
For security purposes, your full credit card number is not permanently stored within our system. On occasion, we may temporarily store the entire encrypted credit card number when it is necessary to manually contact a credit card company for verification.
You agree that in order for us to provide the Service and any services incidental to it (such as online shopping functions), we may need to store or transfer your Personal Information to servers located outside of Australia.

While New Balance's policy prohibits children under 13 from registering with the Service, parents should supervise their children's online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address and other Personal Information without parental permission.
