We cannot guarantee that your personal information is totally protected, for example, from misuse or hackers. If you enter personal information on our website, you should exercise due care to safeguard any passwords, ID number, or other special access features associated with your use of our website.

This is particularly true for information you send to us via email, as we have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your personal information, we are required to protect it in accordance with the Act and the Australian Privacy Principals.

However, we will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information.

We will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information from our system which is no longer required by us.

Collecting Information from Users

IP Addresses

Our web servers gather your IP address to assist with the diagnosis of problems or support issues with our services. This information may be aggregated and used in broader statistical analysis by us and our web monitoring service provider without identifying you as the source of the analysed data.

Fraud Prevention

We will surrender a user's IP address if we suspect fraudulent activities.

Cookies and Applets

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on the website operated by Hart & Co. online. We use cookies to provide you with a better experience. We use cookies to analyse the usage of this site, identify repeat customers and make it easier for you to navigate our site, and where applicable, provide customer service to you (e.g. online live chats to assist with your purchase.) These cookies allow us to increase your security by storing your session ID and are a way of monitoring single user access.

Some of our business partners also use cookies and web beacons on our site. We have no access to or control over these tracking technologies. A tracking utility company uses cookies to analyse your navigation around websites. This information is generally not personally identifiable, and is analysed to determine user preferences and provide feedback so we can make improvements to our websites. In limited cases they can assist visitors by notifying them of transactional issues.

If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some features on the site will be limited.

Hart & Co. Online will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any cookies, tracking/web pixels or Google advertising products or features, unless it has robust notice of and the relevant party’s consent to that merger.

Third Party Cookies

Third party cookies are sent by different organisations (such as businesses which provide content such as advertising) to the owner of the website you are visiting – so in this instance this means by organisations other than Hart & Co. Online.

Third party cookies are used on Hart & Co.’s website to enable remarketing and reporting for impression assisted visits, website conversions, user demographics and user interests.

The third party cookies we may use on our website include (but are not limited to):

  • Google Analytics: Hart & Co. Online uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Reports obtained from Google Analytics are used to help improve the efficiency and usability of Hart & Co.’s website.

    Google Analytics uses first party cookies and JavaScript code to gather statistics about how this website is accessed. It anonymously tracks how our visitors interact with this website, including which website they came from previously and what they did on the site (i.e. which pages they visited). The information generated by the cookie and JavaScript code about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers located outside of Australia.

    Google will use the information transmitted to it for the purposes of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may transfer this information to third parties where it is required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

  • Google Analytics Advertising Features: Hart & Co. Online also uses Google Analytics Advertising Features. By enabling the Advertising Features, Hart & Co. Online enables or permits Google Analytics to collect data about the traffic to art & Co. Online’s web site via the use of Google advertising cookies and identifiers, in addition to the data collected through the standard Google Analytics feature.

    The Google advertising cookies are used to, among other things, select advertising for users based on what is relevant to them, to improve reporting on campaign performance and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen.

    You can control the ads you see across Google services, like Search or YouTube and websites and apps that partner with Google to show ads at

  • YouTube: We embed videos or insert links to videos from YouTube from time to time on our website. As a result, when you visit a page with content embedded from or linked to YouTube, you may be presented with cookies from these websites.

  • Facebook tracking / web pixel: The Facebook tracking / web pixel is a piece of code provided by Facebook that is placed on or within a website to alert Facebook when a trackable “event” is complete. This includes “events” that occur both online and offline (in our stores). For example, when a party clicks on a Facebook advertisement and then connects with website(s) of the party responsible for the advertisement, or when a party interacts with a Facebook advertisement and then completes a transaction in the store of the party responsible for the advertisement.

    Hart & Co. Online makes use of this tracking / web pixel to run and facilitate the campaigns and competitions it runs via Facebook. The tracking / web pixel allows Hart & Co. Online to track the “events” that happen as a result of art & Co.’s Facebook advertisements.
