We use Google Analytics to inform us of how visitors use our site based on your browsing habits, so that we can improve our site to make it easier for you to find the information you are seeking. These features use first­-party and third-­party cookies to inform and optimise content based on your past visits to our site.

You’ll also find information about how to delete cookies from your computer. For the majority of browsers this can be done through your preferences control panel.

If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of this website may become inaccessible or not function properly.

Online Advertising

RCC also engages in online advertising to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products.

Like many companies, we target ads to you when you are on other websites and apps. We do this using a variety of digital marketing networks and ad exchanges, and we use a range of advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some sites and social networks, such as Facebook’s Custom Audience service.

The banners and ads you see will be based on information we hold about you, your previous transactions or interactions with RCC, or on RCC banners or ads you have previously clicked on. We do not otherwise track any information about your use of other websites.


We use the “visitor action pixels” from Facebook Inc on the RCC website.

This allows user behaviour to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e. we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, and Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and also use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Usage Policy https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes. You can opt-out of Facebook’s use of cookies and Facebook Pixel Re-Marketing through settings on your Facebook Account. https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.

RCC may use Facebook Custom Audiences to deliver advertisements to Website Visitors on Facebook based on email addresses that we have collected, including, but not limited to, Membership accounts and enewsletters. We may also use information associated with visitor social media accounts, such as demographic and other information to improve our marketing efforts and deliver custom advertising.

Social media sites

RCC takes no responsibility for any personal information you may post on any of RCC’s social media sites including, but not limited to, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Pinterest, Yelp, Foursquare, LinkedIn and Snapchat. Any information or content created by you that is in the public domain may be shared by RCC. This may include, but is not limited to, publicly accessible information on social media sites, blogs, forums and websites. RCC will endeavour to credit content creators wherever possible.

Transfer of Personal information out of the UK or EEA

RCC is an Australian company and as such, your personal information will be transferred outside of the European Economic Area. When doing so, we will comply with our legal and regulatory obligations in relation to the personal information including having a lawful basis for transferring personal information and putting appropriate safeguards in place to ensure an adequate level of protection for the personal information.

Where will we store your information?

The data that we collect from you may be stored on our secure servers and, in respect of payment data, on those of our third-party provider of payment processing services purely for the purposes of processing payment.

The data we collect from you may be processed by staff who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the hosting of the Website or provision of support services.  By submitting your personal data, you agree to this storing and/ or processing.  We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

RCC does not store your credit card information for future transactions. Instead, a token containing your payment details remains (in an encrypted format) within our payment processing provider’s secure network, in compliance with data protection legislation and any other applicable laws, regulations or standards, until it expires (cancellation or expiration of card) as dictated by the payment processing provider.

Mandatory Data Breach
