We are committed to protecting the privacy of any information provided by you as our customer and will take all reasonable precautions to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse or unauthorised access.

From time to time it may be necessary for us to revise and update our privacy policy. We reserve the right to change our privacy policy at any time without prior notice. We will notify you, our customer, of any significant changes by posting an updated version of the policy on our website. You are required to familiarise yourself with our policies and terms before placing an order with us. 

Please note, by using the Nicki Studios website you are consenting to the collection of information online at www.nickistudios.com in accordance with our privacy policy.

Details We Require From You

In order to process your order, we require information such as your name, email address, contact number, billing and delivery address and payment details to fulfil the order and deliver it to you.

We will not sell your personal information to any third party we engage with. We will not disclose your details to any third parties without your prior consent except in the following circumstances:

  • For delivery purposes; and
  • If necessary to comply with applicable laws, investigations, or legal proceedings where Nicki Studios is obliged to disclose your information

An example of an instance where you have provided us with consent is when you subscribe to our email newsletter and we engage a third party platform or provider to send you emails, or where you allow notifications from us for marketing purposes and we send you these notifications via a third party provider.

For your security when checking out online with us (ie. during the transaction process), we use Shopify Plus certified partner Stripe to securely accept credit card payments. No intervention by us is required to complete this credit card transaction and credit card details are discarded securely once processed at point of purchase. This is why we may request to see a photocopy of the front of your credit card if our bank request further verification from you to process your order.

We do not require you to register an account or subscribe to our database in order to access our website, but we reserve the right to do so in the future. Should we implement a registration process, we will commit to comply with any privacy legislation applicable at the time in respect of your user information.
