Who is the issuer of this Policy?

This Policy is issued by Bookleaf Pty Ltd (ACN 009 036 202) as trustee for The Eden Unit Trust trading as Holman Industries (ABN 29 385 212 665) (Holman, we, our or us). It applies to us and our subsidiaries, unless another express policy has been issued.

What is this Policy?

We recognise and respect your privacy and data protection rights. We seek to manage your Personal Information in a fair, open and transparent way.

We are committed to the objectives of the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act). Further, we also seek to apply the principles in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union (EU) to the extent that they apply (see the Schedule to this Policy).

The Policy has been prepared primarily to meet privacy and data protection standards under Australian law and, where applicable, and EU law.

What is the scope of this Policy?

This Policy describes our practices in connection with Personal Information including how and why we collect, use, store, secure, destroy, de-identify and disclose your Personal Information. Specifically, this Policy explains:

  • the kinds of Personal Information we collect and hold;
  • how we collect and hold Personal Information and obtain your consent;
  • the primary and secondary purposes for which we collect, hold, use and disclose Personal Information;
  • how you may access your Personal Information and correct it;
  • how you may complain about a possible breach of privacy or data protection rights;
  • when we may disclose Personal Information to an overseas entity and the countries in which these entities are likely to be located;
  • who we may contract with internationally and international transfers of your Personal Information;
  • how we manage your Personal Information if you use the Products.

The Policy is provided free of charge and you may request our Policy in a specific format. We will take reasonable steps to give you a copy in that format.

By visiting our website, using any of our products or otherwise providing your Personal Information to us, you agree to this Policy (and any updates) and you consent to our management of your Personal Information in accordance with this Policy and any other arrangements that apply between us.

What is Personal Information?

Personal Information is defined under the Privacy Act as being information or an opinion about an identified individual (e.g. a natural person), or an individual who is reasonably identifiable:

  • whether the information or opinion is true or not; and
  • whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.

Personal Information is focused on information relating to natural persons, not bodies corporate or business entities.

Does this Policy apply to general confidential information?

This Policy only applies to Personal Information. It does not apply to general confidential or commercially sensitive (e.g. contract terms, transactional information, customer information etc.), unless that information is Personal Information.

If information is both Personal Information and general confidential or commercially sensitive information of a client or customer, we will deal with that information in accordance the requirements of this Policy and any other confidentiality obligations to which we are bound.

Many of our products, such as irrigation, watering, plumbing, garden lifestyle and garden lighting products, can be found in major hardware stores. Holman increasingly provides products which incorporate innovative and web-enabled technologies which collect, send and act on data obtained in the surrounding environments.

Is Personal Information collected from third parties?

In order to provide our services, we may collect Personal Information from third parties, including government agencies and business associates.

We will only collect Personal Information from third parties if:

We may disclose Personal Information for the purposes described in this Policy to:

  • our third-party service providers who perform certain business related functions for us, such as website hosting, data analysis, payment and credit card processing, infrastructure provision, IT services, customer support services, email delivery services and other similar services to enable those third parties to provide services to us;
  • to our customers and other business partners who provide you, directly or indirectly, with your Smart Devices and/or networks and systems through which you access and use our websites, Apps and Products;
  • to an affiliate or other third-party in the event of any corporate re-structure, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock – we will notify you via a notice on our website of any significant change in ownership and you retain the ability to opt out;

Will my Personal Information be disclosed to persons overseas?

From time to time, circumstances may arise where there may be a need for us to disclose or transfer Personal Information to an overseas recipient or receive Personal Information from an overseas recipient. This may occur in a range of circumstances. For example:

  • where data is being stored and accessed by way of cloud computing or where we correspond with professional advisors in various countries; or
  • if and when our employees or contractors are travelling overseas.

Laws in these countries may differ from the country in which you live in.

We seek to carefully consider and where possible limit our overseas transfers of Personal Information and disclosures to jurisdictions with substantially similar privacy protections. However, you should be aware of the inherent risks of international transfers of Personal Information, particularly to jurisdictions which may have markedly different privacy protections to Australia. By using our website and/or any of our Products (including software applications), you consent to all overseas disclosures of Personal Information.

To which countries may my Personal Information be disclosed?

The countries which are likely to receive your Personal Information include, but are not limited to Australia, Germany, the United States of America and China.

Will overseas recipients need to comply with the APPs?

Before disclosing Personal Information to an overseas recipient, we will take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that the overseas recipient also adopts privacy procedures which materially comply with the APPs in relation to that information, unless the APPs would not require us to do so.

We will not be required to take the such steps if:

  • we reasonably believe that:
    • the recipient of the information is subject to a law or a binding scheme that has the effect of protecting the information in a way that, overall, is at least substantially similar to the way in which the APPs protect the information; and
    • there are mechanisms that could be taken to enforce the law or binding scheme;
  • both of the following apply:
    • we expressly inform the individual about whom the information relates that if they consent to the disclosure of the information, we will not be required to take such steps; and
    • after being so informed, the individual consents to the disclosure;
  • the disclosure of the information is required or authorised pursuant to an Australian law or a court/tribunal order; or
  • the APPs otherwise allow us to refrain from taking such steps, if they applied.

Do any third-party manufacturers of Products collect my Personal Information?

You should also be aware that some of the Products we may sell to you are produced/supplied by Tuya Inc., a company which has operations in China, the United States of America (California) and Germany.

Tuya Products may also collect your Personal Information. We do not control the collection and management of this Personal Information. You can find Tuya’s Privacy Policy at:

To the extent permitted by law, we do not take any reasonability or liability for how Tuya or any third party which we do not control collects and deals with your Personal Information.

Use for Direct Marketing

Can Personal Information be used for direct marketing?

We may, from time to time, use or disclose Personal Information for the purpose of direct marketing.

We may send you direct marketing communications and information about our services and products. This may take the form of emails, SMS, mail or other forms of communication, in accordance with the Spam Act 2003 (Cth) and the Do Not Call Register Act 2006 (Cth).

We may use or disclose Personal Information (other than Sensitive Information) for direct marketing if:

  • we collected the information from the individual concerned;
  • the individual has consented to, or would reasonably expect us to, use or disclose the information for that purpose; and

Security and Data Breach

Is my Personal Information secured?

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information from misuse, interference, hacking and loss, as well as unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

However, security measures are not an absolute protection and there is an inherent risk of unauthorised access. To the extent permitted by law, we exclude legal liability for any harm or damage eventuating from security related incidents.

What steps are taken to secure Personal Information?

We use several physical, administrative, personnel and technical measures to protect your Personal Information.

Our third-party providers use commercially reasonable physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your Personal Information. They also provide various security strategies to effectively ensure data security of user and device. With regards to:

  • device access – proprietary algorithms are employed to ensure data security, access authentication and applying for authorisation.
  • data communication – communication using security algorithms and transmission encryption protocols and commercial level information encryption transmission based on dynamic keys are supported.
  • data processing – strict data filtering and validation and complete data audit are applied.
  • data storage – all confidential information of users will be safely encrypted for storage.

Will I be notified if there is a data breach?

Depending on the circumstances, we may notify you, any affected individuals and, if required by applicable law, the relevant regulator, as soon as practicable after we become aware that there are reasonable grounds to believe that there has been an eligible data breach.

If it is impracticable to notify all affected individuals, and depending on the circumstances of the breach, we may publish a statement on our website and publicise the content or that statement.

We may not provide notice where it would be inconsistent with secrecy provisions or prejudice law enforcement actions. If we have taken sufficient remedial action in response to the eligible data breach, or if the regulator determines that notification is not required (if applicable), then we may not notify you of the breach.

What is an ‘eligible data breach’?

An “eligible data breach” under the Privacy Act is where there has been unauthorised access or disclosure, or loss of information where unauthorised access or disclosure is likely, and a reasonable person would conclude that this access or disclosure would likely result in serious harm to the related individuals.

Anonymity and Pseudonymity

Do I have a right to anonymity or to be referred to by a pseudonym?

When interacting with us, individuals may choose to remain anonymous or to use a pseudonym.

Are there any exceptions?

We may elect not to deal with the individual anonymously or pseudonymously if:

  • we are required or authorised by or under an Australian law, or a court/tribunal order, to deal with you in accordance with your identity; or
  • it is impracticable for us to deal with you in this way.

You acknowledge that if you do not provide identification, we may not be able to provide our services, contract with you or assist you.

Retention and Destruction

How long will my Personal Information be retained?

We will hold your Personal Information for the minimum period necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy.

Is my Personal Information deleted/destroyed?

If we hold Personal Information about an individual which we no longer require, we will take reasonable steps to destroy the information or ensure that it is de-identified, unless prohibited by law or the APPs otherwise require us to avoid taking such steps.

If we are unable to destroy your Personal Information due to technical reasons, we will ensure that appropriate measures are put in place to prevent further use or identification of your Personal Information.

If you have a Holman Home account, and deactivate it, then we will aim to destroy or de-identify all Personal Information within seven to fourteen business days. However, if you login to your account before this date, your deactivation request will be cancelled.

If you do not use the Holman Home App or the associated device for a period of two years, then we will destroy or de-identify your Personal Information.

Quality and Access to Personal Information

How will my Personal Information be maintained?

We will endeavour to take reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Information that we collect is accurate, up-to-date and complete.

The reasonable steps described above that we may undertake include:

  • ensuring that updated and the new Personal Information is promptly added to relevant existing records;
  • reminding individuals to update their Personal Information when we engage with them; and/or
  • with respect to Personal Information in the form of an opinion, we may take the following steps to verify the accuracy of the opinion:
    • checking that the opinion is a reliable source;
    • providing the opinion to individuals before we use or disclose it; and
    • clearly indicating on our record that the information is an opinion and identifying the individual who formed that opinion.

What do I do if my Personal Information is out-of-date?

If you think that the Personal Information that we hold about you might be out of date and needs to be corrected, please contact us using the details located at the end of this Policy.

Can I access my Personal Information?

You may request access to any of the Personal Information we hold about you. In most cases, a summary of your personal information will be freely available to you by contacting us. We may need to confirm your identity prior to taking further action, for security purposes.

Requests for access to your Personal Information will be handled within a reasonable period and we will endeavour to give you access to the information in the format and manner requested, if it is reasonable and practicable to do so.

We will endeavour to take reasonable steps to give access in a way that meets the needs of Holman and yourself, noting that access may be given using a mutually agreed intermediary.

Are there any exceptions to my right of access?

The APPs provide a list of situations in which access to an individual’s Personal Information may be denied. We may deny an individual access to their Personal Information in these circumstances.

Such situations include, but are not limited to where:

  • where giving access would threaten life, health or safety of any individual or threaten public health or safety;
  • granting access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others;
  • the information:
    • relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings between the individual about who the information relates and us; and
    • would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings;
  • access would reveal our intentions in relation to negotiations with the individual in such a way as to prejudice those negotiations;
  • where giving access would reveal evaluative information generated in connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process;
  • granting access would be unlawful or where denying access is required or authorised by law;
  • the request is frivolous or vexatious; and
  • denying access would be likely to prejudice the taking of appropriate action in relation to the matter.

If we refuse to give access to the Personal Information in the circumstances required by the APPs, or if we refuse to give access in the manner requested, we will take such steps (if any) that are reasonable in the circumstances to give access in a way that meets our needs and the needs of the individual.

If we refuse to give access to Personal Information, we will provide a written notice setting out:

  • the reasons for denying access to Personal Information (except where it would be unreasonable to provide the reasons);
  • the mechanisms available to complain about the refusal; and
  • any other matters prescribed by Australian privacy regulations.

Will I be charged to access my Personal Information?

We reserve the right to charge reasonable fees where requests for Personal Information contain complications or are resource intensive. A fee will not be excessive and will not apply to the making of the request.

Correction of Personal Information

Can I correct my Personal Information?

If, with regard to the purpose for which it is held, we are satisfied that Personal Information we hold is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, or if the individual about whom the Personal Information relates makes a request, we will take reasonable steps to correct the information.

However, as a matter of practice, when we receive Personal Information, we will hold the information for a period before we consider whether it is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading (unless we are informed otherwise).

If we correct Personal Information at the individual requests, we will take reasonable steps to notify any third party to whom we previously disclosed the Personal Information, if it is not unlawful or impracticable for us to do so.

Further, you may request that we associate the information with a statement that the information is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading (Correction Statement). Where such a request is made, we will take reasonable steps to associate the correction statement with the Personal Information, so that it is apparent to the users of the Personal Information.

We will aim to respond to a request to correct information or associate a Correction Statement with the Personal Information within a reasonable period of the request being made.

Are there exceptions to my right to request a correction?

If we refuse to correct Personal Information in circumstances permitted by the APPs, we will provide a written notice setting out:

  • the reasons for the refusal (except where it would be unreasonable to provide the reasons);
  • the mechanisms available to complain about the refusal; and
  • any other matter prescribed by the regulations.

Will I be charged for a correction?

We will not charge fees for requests for the correction of Personal Information or for associating a Correction Statement with the Personal Information.

How do I request to amend my Personal Information?

Requests for correction of Personal Information should be made in writing and send to us using the enquiries contact details set out below.


What happens if you receive unsolicited Personal Information?

If we receive Personal Information that we did not solicit, we will, within a reasonable period of receiving the information, determine whether we would have been permitted to collect the information in circumstances permitted by the APPs.

If we determine that we have received Personal Information that we are not permitted to collect under the APPs (and the information is not contained in a Commonwealth record), we will as soon as practicable and where it is lawful and reasonable to do so, destroy the information or ensure that it is de-identified.

If we determine that collection of the Personal Information is permitted under the APPs, we will ensure that the information is dealt with in a manner that complies with this Policy.

Can the Policy be changed?

We may change, update, revoke or replace the Policy from time to time by publishing changes to it on our website.

We may notify you via email or by means of a notice in a mobile application. We encourage you to periodically review the privacy policy on the website for the latest information about our privacy practices.
