RESPECTING YOUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY AT THE C.ex GROUP
Protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information is a high priority for the C.ex Group.
Personal information with regards to this website and all the C.ex Group online portals (and any other C.ex Group printed materials) means information we hold about you from which we can search for and retrieve your identity. For example, we may collect and use your name and address details when you acquire or use particular C.ex Group products or services. The C.ex Group understands that providing your personal information imposes a serious responsibility upon us.
We are committed to protecting your personal information. Where your personal information may be disclosed, and to the extent that we can, we believe in giving you a choice as to whom we may disclose your personal information to, and how these third parties may use your personal information for direct marketing.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect personal information directly from you, and only to the extent necessary to deliver and ensure a C.ex Group product or service. We may choose to collect personal information from you when you fill in an application form, both in hard copy format or online via our website, or over the telephone.
We will always attempt to collect personal information from you using lawful and fair means, and not in an unlawful manner. The type of personal information we may collect from you generally comprises name, address, gender, contact details (including phone, fax and e-mail).
If we do not collect this information, we may not be able to provide you with the C.ex Group product or service you have requested.
HOW WE MAKE USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
The C.ex Group will collect your personal information in order to provide you with, or give you access to, a particular C.ex Group product or service. The C.ex Group may choose to disclose your personal information for the main purpose for which we collect it, with such disclosure reasonably expected by you. Some of these examples include, but are not limited to:
- helping the C.ex Group to develop a stronger relationship with you;
- internal membership management, accounting and finance;
- administrative reporting;
- protecting you and the C.ex Group from fraud; and
- as part of a C.ex Group campaign.
Occasionally, we may also disclose your personal information for the purposes of facilitating the distribution of marketing materials to you by C.ex Group employing a third party. We will not do this if you ask us not to do so. There are other situations where we are compelled by law to disclose your personal information. For instance, under certain circumstances we may be compelled to provide your personal information to law enforcement agencies, the Australian Electoral Office, the Department of Family Services or the Australian Taxation Office.
We also collect and use personal information for the following purposes:
- monitoring, moderating and improving our website (for example, by generating analytics about how members browse and interact with the website);
- advertise and market events, activities, opportunities, offers and the goods and services provided by the C.ex Group (including direct mail, email, telephone and SMS) including without limitation with respect to food and beverage promotions, entertainment, wagering, gaming machines, gaming, sporting events and venue hire;
- assessing or improving our products and services; and
- for training and quality purposes, including monitoring, recording and analysing online interactions and communications between you and us.
DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
- our suppliers and service providers, including those to whom we outsource certain of our information technology functions (e.g. cloud service providers);
- other related bodies corporate of the ex Group;
- government, regulatory, judicial or law enforcement authorities;
- accountants, insurers, auditors, lawyers and our professional advisers;
- any corporate purchaser or prospect to the extent permitted by law as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of ex Group’s assets, or transition of service to another provider, as well as in the event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as an asset of C.ex Group; and
- any other third parties notified to you at or around the time we collect your personal information (together, the Required Recipients).
Although most Required Recipients are located within Australia, others may be located, or have relevant operations elsewhere, including in USA, Singapore, Europe, United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland and New Zealand. Therefore, it may be necessary to transfer personal information overseas. Some of the countries to which information is transferred may not have laws regulating the collection and disclosure of personal information. In these circumstances, C.ex Group will take steps to ensure that the recipients of the personal information comply with the Privacy Act.
C.ex Group may use the personal information we collect from you to identify particular C.ex Group products and services, which we believe may be of interest and benefit to you, such as from third parties. This may include such activities as competitions, policy announcements, campaigns or to hear about shows and entertainment from the C.ex Group, our community partners or affiliated sponsors. We may then contact you to let you know about these products and services. If you do not wish to receive this direct marketing information from C.ex Group, please let us know.
QUALITY AND ACCURACY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If we have accurate personal information about you, it enables us to provide you with the best possible service. The C.ex Group will take reasonable steps to ensure the personal information we collect, use and disclose is accurate, complete and up to date.
