Respecting Your Privacy
Types of Personal Information We Collect
What personal information do we collect and hold?
The types of information that we collect and hold about you could include:
• ID information such as your name, postal and email address, telephone numbers, date of birth and occupation;
• other contact details such as social media handles;
• financial details such as your tax file number if you are a staff member;
• health information if you are a staff member; and
• other information we think is necessary.
Collection required by Law
When the law authorises or requires us to collect information
We may collect information about you because we are required or authorised by law to collect it. There are laws that affect licensed clubs, including the Corporations Act, Registered Club’s Act and Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorism Financing Act, which require us to collect personal information. For example, we require personal information to permit you to join the Club or to use the Club’s premises if you are not a member. Sometimes, we may be required to verify your identity under the Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorism Financing Act also.
How we collect and hold your information
We understand that your personal information needs to be looked after. We appreciate that such information is generally not available to the public to view. For this reason, unless it’s unreasonable or impracticable, we will try to collect personal information directly from you (referred to as ‘solicited information’). For this reason, it’s important that you help us to do this and keep your contact details up-to-date.
There are many ways we seek information from you. We might collect your information when you fill out a membership application form to join the Club as a member, when you enter the Club as a temporary member or guest of a member or if you’ve given us a call. We also find using electronic means, such as email or SMS, a convenient way to communicate with you and to verify your details.
How we collect your information from other sources
Sometimes we collect information about you from other sources. We do this only if it’s necessary to do so. Instances are where:
we can’t get hold of you and we rely on publicly available information to update your contact details;
at your request, we exchange information with representatives (such as legal) outside of the Club.
What if you don’t want to provide us with your personal information?
If you don’t provide your personal information to us, we may not be able to:
• admit you to membership of the Club or admit you into the Club as a temporary member or guest of a member;
• provide you with the activities, products, services or promotions you want;
• verify your identity or protect you against fraud; or
• let you know about other activities, products, services or promotions provided by ICC that might better meet your requirements as a user of ICC’s facilities and amenities.
Unsolicited Personal Information
What do we do when we get information we didn’t ask for?
Because we are a big Club with thousands of members, people often share information with us we haven’t asked for (referred to as ‘unsolicited information’). Where we receive unsolicited personal information about you, we will check whether that information is reasonably necessary for our functions or activities. If it is, we’ll handle this information the same way we do with other information we seek from you. If not, we’ll ensure we do the right thing and destroy or de-identify it.
Notifying you that we have received your personal information?
When we receive personal information from you directly, we’ll take reasonable steps to notify you how and why we collected your information, who we may disclose it to and outline how you can access it, seek correction of it or make a complaint.
Taking Care of Your Personal Information
How do we take care of your personal information?
We store information in many different ways, including in paper and electronic form. The security of your personal information is important to us and we take reasonable steps to protect it from misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Some of the ways we do this are:
• confidentiality requirements of our employees;
• document storage security policies;
• security measures for access to our systems;
• only giving access to personal information to a person who is verified to be able to receive that information;
• control of access to our buildings; and
• electronic security systems, such as firewalls and data encryption on our websites.
We can store personal information physically or electronically with third party data storage providers. Where we do this, we use contractual arrangements to ensure those providers take appropriate measures to protect that information and restrict the uses to which they can put that information.
What happens when we no longer need your information?
We’ll only keep your information for as long as we require it for our purposes. We’re also required to keep some of your information for certain periods of time under law, such as the Corporations Act, the Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorism Financing Act and Gaming Machines Act for example. When we no longer require your information, we’ll ensure that your information is destroyed or de-identified.
How we use your personal information
What are the main reasons we collect, hold and use your information?
Because we hold a Club Licence and have members, the Registered Clubs Act and Corporations Act require us to collect your personal information to allow us to let you use the facilities and amenities of the Club. This allows us to use your personal information to:
• process your application for membership and provide you with products and services;
• grant you the right to use the Club as a temporary member or guest of a member;
• provide you with information about the Club’s products and services;
• administer products and services which includes loyalty rewards programs and telephone enquiries about member services.
Can we use your information for marketing our products and services?
Given the nature of our organisation is that we exist to provide products and services to our members, we like to share information about those products and services with you. We may use or disclose your personal information to let you know about products and services offered or promoted by ICC that might better serve your needs as a member, including running competitions or promotions and other opportunities in which you may be interested.
We may conduct these marketing activities via email, telephone, SMS, iM, mail, or any other electronic means. We may also market our products to you through third party channels (such as social networking sites), or based on your use of ICC programs. We will always let you know that you can opt out from receiving our third party or ICC program marketing offers.
With your consent, we may disclose your personal information to third parties for the purpose of connecting you with other businesses or customers that we consider may be appropriate. You can ask us not to do this at any time. We won’t sell your personal information to any organisation outside of ICC.
Yes, You Can Opt-Out
You can let us know at any time if you no longer wish to receive direct marketing offers from ICC. Just drop in to one of ICC’s sites and inform our reception staff. We will process your request as soon as practicable.
Using your Personal Information?
We’ve set out above some of the main reasons why we collect your information. So here we set out some of the ways we use your personal information:
• identifying you as a member of ICC;
• telling you about other products or services that may be of interest to you, or running Club activities, competitions and other promotions (including gaming promotions) (this can be via email, telephone, SMS, iM, mail, or any other electronic means including via social networking forums), unless you tell us not to;
• assisting in arrangements with other organisations (such as loyalty partners) in relation to a products or services we make available to you;
• allowing us to run our business and perform administrative and operational tasks, such as: training staff;

• for any purpose for which you have given your consent.

How do you access your personal information?
How you generally access your information
We‘ll always give you access to your personal information unless there are certain legal reasons why we can’t. You can ask us to access your personal information that we hold by attending reception at an ICC site. You may be required to complete a Personal Information Access Form before we can assist you. In some cases we may be able to deal with your request over the phone or immediately at reception however, in most cases we will need up to 48 hours to provide the information requested.
We will give you access to your information in the form you want it where it’s reasonable and practical (such as a copy of your membership details – we can print it out for you). We may charge you a small fee to cover our costs when giving you access, but we’ll always check with you first.
We’re not always required to give you access to your personal information. Some of the situations where we don’t have to give you access include when:
• we believe there is a threat to life or public safety;
• there is an unreasonable impact on other individuals;
• the request is frivolous;
• the information wouldn’t be ordinarily accessible because of legal proceedings;
• it would prejudice negotiations with you;
• it would be unlawful;
• it would jeopardise taking action against serious misconduct by you;
• it would be likely to harm the activities of an enforcement body (e.g. the police); or
• it would harm the confidentiality of our commercial information.
If we can’t provide your information in the way you’ve requested, we will tell you why in writing. If you have concerns, you can complain.
How do you correct your personal information?
Contact us if you think there is something wrong with the information we hold about you and we’ll try to correct it if it’s:
• out of date;
• irrelevant; or
If you are worried that we have given incorrect information to others, you can ask us to tell them about the correction. We’ll try and help where we can – if we can’t, then we’ll let you know in writing.
Helping you manage corrections
Whether we made the mistake or the mistake has been made by someone else, we are required to help you ask for the information to be corrected. So we can do this, we might need to talk to others. However, the most efficient way for you to make a correction request is to send it to the organisation which made the mistake.
Where we correct information
If we’re able to correct the information, we’ll let you know within five (5) business days of forming that view. If there are any instances where we can’t do this, then we’ll let you know in writing.

If we agree to correct your information, we’ll do so within thirty (30) days from when you asked us, or a longer period that’s been agreed by you.
If we can’t make corrections within thirty (30) days or the agreed time frame, we must:
let you know about the delay, the reasons for it and when we expect to resolve the matter;
ask you to agree in writing to give us more time; and
let you know you can complain to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
