  • Your credit card details are required if you intend to make a purchase using a card, and some personal identification details (for example, a driver’s licence number) are requested if you ask to pay for a purchase by personal cheque.

If you ask us to post or use a courier to deliver a purchase then your name and address (and telephone number, if required) will be disclosed to Australia Post or to a courier company solely for delivery purposes.
