Data privacy and security

Kmart Group takes active steps to protect personal information that is being held against loss, unauthorised access or use, modification or disclosure and any other misuse. This includes any personal information that is being disclosed to overseas entities as prescribed in our privacy policies. Where there is personal information held overseas, third parties are expected to store data in restricted access premises and provide appropriate protection against unauthorised disclosure.

Password authentication is required to access any databases holding personal information. Firewalls, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology and encryption for transmission of data are used where appropriate. Kmart Group has procedures to destroy, delete or de-identify personal information which is no longer required. Furthermore, credit card information is not held by Kmart or Target’s online stores.
