This privacy policy covers all personal information that we hold and any personal information that we may from time to time collect.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

When we ask you to provide personal information we will do so in a lawful and fair way. Generally this information is collected to keep your registration with us up-to-date, to improve our services to you, or when you request goods or information from us, or from a third party collecting your information through us so that they can supply goods or information requested by you. The provision of the information is voluntary. However, if you choose not to provide the information requested we may be unable to keep you informed about programs, services, offers and events or to process your request e.g. awards registration and entry, purchases (e.g. presentation dinner tickets) or enquiries, and this may preclude or limit your access to the goods and services available. We will tell you why we are collecting the information and who are the third parties to whom we may disclose that information. Information as to how and where to contact us will also be available. If we collect information from a third party we will take reasonable steps to advise you of that collection promptly.

  • it is part of business assets which we are selling;
  • we are required by law to disclose it; or
  • it is otherwise permitted under the Act
