Use and Disclosure

The Club will only use and/or disclose your personal information for the purpose for which you have provided it, e.g. for application of club membership or to gain entry to the Club premises as a visitor or guest or for other purposes as permitted by the Privacy Act or that are set out in this Privacy Policy or for which you consent.


For example, when a person applies for membership of the Club we must collect details including their name and address. We must display this information on the Club’s notice board before our Board is able to consider the application for membership. We may also need to provide this information to members of the general public if a request is made under the Corporations Act. When or before the Club collects personal information, the Club will take reasonable steps to inform the individual providing the information of:


  • our identity and contact details;

  • the purposes for which the formation if collected;

  • the facts and circumstances of the collection;

  • where applicable, any law that requires the particular information to be collected;

  • the consequences if we do not collect the information;

  • that this policy contains information about how you can access or correct your information or make a complaint about the Club; and

  • whether we are likely to disclose the information overseas (and if so to which countries).

From time to time, you may be able to visit the Club website or deal with us anonymously or by pseudonym. However, please be aware that, if you do not provide us with certain personal information that we require, we may not be able to provide you with the products and/or services that you seek.


For example, the Club will be unable to allow you to join the Club or to be a temporary member, unless you have provided us with the required personal information. The Club will also be unable to provide you with certain goods and services or to join a Sub-Club, unless you have first provided the Club with the required personal information.


The Club will not use your personal information for any other purpose, nor will we disclose it, unless we have your consent or in other circumstances where such use or disclosure is permitted under the Privacy Act.


The Club may disclose your information to third parties. These third parties may include (but are not limited to):

  • our related companies, companies in which the Club has an ownership interest or our agents, in order to: to provide products and/or services to you; or to market to you, their products and/or services which you may be interested in;

  • employees, third party service and content providers, dealers and agents, contractors and advisors and

  • law enforcement bodies to assist in their functions, courts of law or as otherwise required or authorised by law;

  • regulatory or government bodies for the purposes of resolving customer complaints or conducting investigations.

Marketing and Promotional Materials

The Club may use your personal information for the purposes of marketing our services/products or to inform you of new services, promotions or events that we believe you may be interested in. For example, from time to time, the Club may wish to carry out a voluntary survey for feedback. Before collecting survey results, the Club will advise you of the purpose of the survey e.g. to gain information for the club to improve services etc.

Visitors and Guests

Under the Registered Clubs Act, patrons visiting the Club must produce a recognised form of identification i.e. passport, drivers license or proof of age card to gain entry to the premises. The Club uses terminals to gather this information and to protect the data collected i.e. addresses of patrons. Scanning of licences is optional and, if preferred, use of manual sign-in, via the terminals is available for patrons once the form of identification has been sighted by an authorised officer of the Club.

Do I have to use the electronic ID scanner to enter the Club?

No. You are not in any way obliged to scan your identification. If you prefer you can simply manually enter your name, address and signature (as required by the Registered Clubs Act) into the terminal and present your identification to staff who will confirm your details.

What information is collected from the electronic ID scanners?

The current version of the electronic scanners used by the Club retains a full copy of your ID which means that the Club collects all the information recorded on your ID (which may include sensitive information).


This information is retained for at least three years to comply with our obligations under the Registered Clubs Act.


Our electronic ID scanners store data on site only in a password protected encrypted database.

Why does the Club use I.D scanners?

Under the Registered Clubs Act, we are required to maintain records of the name, address and signature of temporary members and guests over the age of 18. Previously, we provided paper registers that needed to be filled out by hand which was slow and cumbersome and wasted paper.


The Club now offers scanning terminals which are quicker and more efficient for temporary members and guests who want to enjoy the facilities of the Club but do not want to manually write in their details.


Scanners are a secure way of holding information and also help provide a safe environment for you, other patrons and our staff. The information collected may be passed on to the police or OLGR to assist in any investigation.


Scanners are also environmental friendly in that they have helped the Club reduce its paper usage and storage.


The collection of personal and sensitive information of the individuals who choose to scan their identification is reasonably necessary for the activities and functions of the Club above.


Surveillance of Venues

The venues in the Campsie Group are subject to video and at times audio surveillance for security reasons. Details of suspected or actual illegal and/or undesirable activities on our premises may be shared with other clubs, law enforcement and regulatory bodies such as the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing and the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority.



Your personal information is held securely in our computer system and, where your personal information has been provided in hard copy format, this personal information is either destroyed, held securely on a Club site, held securely within the control of our Sub-Club representatives or held securely in off-site storage.



Personal information is stored and archived for a period of seven (7) years. This includes information about non-members and internet site transmission logs.



The Club relies on the information provided by members to be accurate and current. The Club takes reasonable steps in the circumstances to ensure that the personal information it collects, uses or discloses is accurate, complete and up-to-date.


If you believe the personal information we hold on you is incorrect, please advise us in writing by sending your letter or email to the Privacy Officer using the details below and informing us of the correct information. We will take reasonable steps to correct Club records appropriately and within a reasonable time frame, except where the Privacy Act prohibits it or if there is an exception under law where we may refuse your correction request.
