The Clubs privacy policy provides an outline of how and when personal information is collected, stored and disclosed by the Club.

Information collected by the Club

The Club collects personal information from members, guests and temporary members including name, address, occupation, date of birth and contact details.  This information is required under the Corporations Act and/or Registered Clubs Act to allow access to the Club and its facilities.  Information may also be collected when a membership card is placed in a gaming machine and when swiped at a kiosk or point of sale terminal.  The Club may also collect additional information when a member or guest participates in a promotion or Club activity.

In the interest of safety and security the Club operates video cameras within the Clubs premises and may collect personal information in the course of investigating incidents, complaints or pursuing disciplinary proceedings.

The Clubs website can generally be visited without users revealing any personal information.  The Club will not collect any personal information from visitors to the website except when information is knowingly provided.

Where practicable, the purpose for which information is collected will be made clear at the time of collection.

Use and disclosure of information

The Club will use the information collected for the purpose disclosed at the time of collection or for other purposes as set out in this Privacy Policy.  We will not use your personal information for any other purpose without first seeking consent unless authorised or required by law.  Generally information will only be used as follows:
