We respect the privacy of our participants, members, volunteers, collaborators and employees and are committed to protecting the personal information you give to us or we otherwise collect from you.
We are subject to the operation of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) which regulates how organisations may collect, use, disclose and store personal information, and how individuals may access and correct personal information held about them. Arts Access Victoria takes the responsibility of protecting and managing personal information very seriously.
The purpose of this policy is to inform you of how we will process your personal information and the measures and processes we have put in place to ensure we meet our obligations under the Privacy Act. This policy is relevant to the collection and usage of all personal information by Arts Access Victoria, including via our websites. As such, this policy should be read in conjunction with the related Disclaimers for those websites, which can be found here on our disclaimer.
In this policy the expressions “we”, “us” and “our” are a reference to Arts Access Victoria. The expressions “you” and “your” refer to each and every individual whose personal information we may handle from time to time.
The expression “personal information” is used in this policy to refer to information or an opinion about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable whether the information or opinion is true or not and whether it is recorded in a material form or not.
The term “website” refers to any of the websites operated by Arts Access Victoria including www.artsaccess.com.au.
Any reference to us assuming an obligation under the Privacy Act or other privacy legislation can be interpreted as a reference to us also procuring our subcontractors to undertake a reciprocal obligation to the extent relevant.
From time to time we may require you to provide personal information to us in order to provide information or services to you. If you do not give us the information we seek, we may be limited in our ability to provide all information, features and functionality of our services and websites.

You may withdraw your consent for us to collect, use or disclose your personal information at any time by contacting us (details provided below). However, without access to your personal information for the purposes listed below, we may be unable to provide our services to you.
We only collect personal information to the extent that this is reasonably necessary for one or more of our functions or activities.
The types of personal information we may ask you to provide will depend on the service you are accessing or the relationship we have with you. We may collect the following categories of information, without limitation:

Typically, we will store personal information electronically on our system and in secure hard copy files.
We do not anticipate that your personal information will be sent outside Australia, however, it is possible that we, or our subcontractors, will utilise cloud technology in connection with the storage of personal information. It is possible that this may result in the transfer of personal information to a jurisdiction where you will not be able to seek redress under the Privacy Act and that does not have an equivalent level of data protection as Australia. We will not be accountable for how these overseas recipients handle your personal information. By providing your personal information to us, you consent to our disclosure of your personal information to these parties. If you have any concerns regarding the potential transfer of your personal information overseas please contact us using the details provided below.
In accordance with the Privacy Act, this policy does not apply to our acts and practices directly related to a current or former employment relationship between us and an employee, and an employee record held by us relating to the employee.
