Terms & Privacy
Thanks for visiting a Hutchies affiliated website. You’re welcome to stay as long as you like.
The information that you’re getting from one of our websites is just for general information purposes, provided by us (Hutchies) to you. We always do our best to keep the information up to date and correct, but sometimes people make mistakes and stuff gets out of date. So here are some formal legal-type words just to let you know that you’d best not rely on the info here if you’re using it for something super-important.
Hutchies makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability with respect to one of our websites or information, products, services, or related graphics contained on one of our websites for any purpose. Any reliance you place on such information is therefore strictly at your own risk. You need to make your own enquiries to determine if the information or products are appropriate for your intended use. In no event will we be liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the use of a Hutchies website.
All we’re really saying is that you should give us a call or send us an email if you need to confirm any of the info here. We’d love to hear from you!
Sometimes we include links to other websites through our sites. These external sites belong to other folks, though, so Hutchies has no control over the content you’ll find there, or whether they work properly. Linking to other sites also doesn’t necessarily mean that we recommend or endorse the stuff that people are saying there, either.
We’re quite fond of our websites and we always try to keep it running smoothly. Sometimes technical stuff fails, though, and if the site is down for a little while, we take no responsibility, and will not be liable for it being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.
This website and its contents include intellectual property of J Hutchinson Pty Ltd (Hutchies) © 2021. All rights reserved. This extends to copyright, patents and trademarks of Hutchies, including associated words, logos and graphics which are registered trademarks of J Hutchinson Pty Ltd. ABN 52 009 778 330 / ACN 009 778 330.
Any redistribution or reproduction of part or all of the contents in any form is prohibited other than the following. You may print or download contents to a local hard disk for your personal and non-commercial use only and reference Hutchinson Builders on any use. You may copy some extracts only to individual third parties for their personal use, but only if you acknowledge the website as the source of the material.
You may not, except with our express written permission, distribute or commercially exploit the content. You may not transmit it or store it on any other website or other form of electronic retrieval system.

If you want to change any of the details you have provided or unsubscribe, you can do so anytime by sending us an email. All information we receive from our visitors is protected by our secure server, which encrypts all information before it is sent to us. We also secure all the data we collect against unauthorised use or access.
Storage and Security of Your Information
We receive and store information you provide us through:
- This website or another one of Hutchies' sites
- Day-to-day business together (ie business card exchanges, correspondence with Hutchies' people)
- Recruitment, employment or training
- Events or referrals
- Feedback you provide
- Systems we collaborate on
This might include basic personal and contact information such as:
- Date of birth

- IP addresses
This enables us to send you information. We may also collect additional data at other times, including but not limited to, when you contact us, provide feedback, participate in training, change your content or email preferences, respond to a survey, or communicate with our people.
We may use personal information collected from you for the purpose of providing you with information about Hutchies including marketing material, updates regarding our business and / or divisions / initiatives, invitations to events, newsletters, and other general information. This will only apply if you have registered or subscribed by providing your details to us in any dealings with Hutchies as outlined above.
If you want to stop receiving this type of information, just let us know either by email or unsubscribing at any time at the bottom of certain emails. Your request will be actioned immediately.
Individual profiles and company details are not used for any other purpose. Details are only supplied to a third party supplier when it is required by law to protect our copyright, trademarks and other legal rights.
We respect the privacy of all our dealings with visitors, including online. We may collect information on or through various forms that can personally identify you. For example, we collect personally identifiable information which you volunteer to us to respond to questions and comments about us and our services, and to mail e-newsletters (the legal folks like to call it 'Personal Data').
Any non-personal information, communications and material you submit to us via one of our websites or by email, or which we obtain from third parties without promises of confidentiality, may be kept, used and disclosed by us on a non-confidential basis. We are free to use and reproduce any such information freely, and for any purpose whatsoever. Specifically, we will be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in such information for any purpose, including developing, manufacturing or marketing products.
No, not the delicious crunchy kind.
Disclosure of Your Information
We may, from time to time, need to disclose certain information, which may include your Personal Data, to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request. Also, we may use your Personal Data to protect the rights, property or safety of Hutchies, our customers or other third parties.
If there is a change of control in one of our businesses (whether by merger, sale, transfer of assets or otherwise) customer information, which may include your Personal Data, could be disclosed to a potential purchaser under a confidentiality agreement. We would only disclose your information in good faith and where required by any of the above circumstances.
We won’t sell our database. We don’t think that’s okay.
We do not and will not sell or deal in contact information. We will never disclose your personal details to a third party except the necessary information required by providers of products or services you have purchased or to protect the rights, property or safety of Hutchies, our customers or third parties or if required by law.
We might use your information in a general sense, though – without your name – to create statistics, identify trends or demands and to assist it in meeting market needs generally. We might also use the information that is collected to improve our website and services but not for any other use.
Keeping data safe is really important to us. We work hard to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personal information submitted to our websites, and we periodically update our security measures to keep up with current technologies.
COVID-19 Contact Tracing
Hutchies is a COVIDSafe business. It is a mandatory requirement for all businesses to collect and store information for contact tracing purposes.
To make the collection process as easy as possible, Hutchies uses a simple QR code sign process in our offices and yards. This technology may store a cookie file locally in your web browser to remember the details you provided on your first visit, so when you return, you can simply re-submit the same information, if it hasn't changed. This cookie is stored on your device, it is not shared with Hutchies.
All Personal Data is stored securely and is in full compliance with the Australian Government's special privacy expectations to keep businesses COVIDSafe. Hutchies will only store this Personal Data for the required period of time as directed by each state / territory health authority.
Contact information collected as part of Hutchies' COVID-19 contact tracing requirements will not be used for any other purpose other than for a contact tracing event.
