At 17 Sundays, we can keep a secret.
However, we do collect a certain amount of information from our customers.
We do this not only to improve your experience at 17 Sundays, but also to ensure that we are listening to each and every one of our customers and providing you with the best products and service that we possibly can.
Keeping your personal information private is as important to us as it is to you, so we make it a priority to handle these things with the utmost responsibility and in accordance with Australian law. We are dedicated to maintaining your confidentiality.
Providing personal information is not a prerequisite for accessing the 17 Sundays site, however it is necessary when:
- placing an order online.
- registering to receive information.
- providing feedback.
In these cases you will see that some of the information you are asked to provide is mandatory (without which you will not be able to complete the process) and some is voluntary.
Apart from the information you personally provide to us, we may also collect navigational information when you browse the 17 Sundays site. This is general information like your domain type, IP service provider, browser type, and IP address, which is presented in the form of overall average use on a daily basis and does not contain personal information about you.
We also use a browser feature known as a cookie, which assigns a unique identification to your computer and is typically stored on your computer's hard drive. Both navigational information and cookies are used by us to identify problems, evaluate the effectiveness of our website, and analyse trends. With this knowledge, we can improve the quality of your experience on our website by recognising and delivering more of the most desired features.
17 Sundays has implemented stringent security measures to protect the information we collect from our website. We receive and store the information on our secure databases, which are only accessible as needed by authorised 17 Sundays staff members, who are fully aware of the importance of confidentiality.
If you are visiting www.17sundays.com from a location outside Australia, your connection will be through, and to, servers located in Australia. Your orders placed with www.17sundays.com will be accepted, fully processed, and shipped from Australia, unless otherwise notified. All information you provide will be processed and securely maintained in our web servers and internal systems located in Australia.
Furthermore, your personal information is not stored or remotely accessible on our website, or on servers whose specific function is to provide Web access. In the event of a possible intrusion to our Web servers, you can be assured that your personal information and any data relating to yourself is not obtainable. The only data stored on our servers is general statistics.
Use and Disclosure:

We use the information gathered for processing your order, developing our website, and improving our products and services for customers and visitors to the website. We may use the information you provide to inform you about new 17 Sundays products or items of interest via email or postal mail, as long as you have indicated that you do not object to this. We try not to do this intrusively and you can always choose not to receive any further newsletters or promotional material from us by clicking on the appropriate link clearly visible in emails we send.
