One way we collect personal information from you is for you to lodge an application form approved under the Registered Clubs Act. We may also collect information from you when you complete other forms, participate in competitions and submit an application for employment. This personal information may include your full name, date of birth, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address, and street and postal address. In some occasions, a recognised form of identification i.e. passport or drivers license will also be required to confirm the personal details provided.

Generally, we collect personal information direct from you however, we may collect and update information over the phone, over the Internet, in person, in writing or if you participate in a customer survey.

From time to time, we may wish to carry out a voluntary survey for feedback. Before collecting survey results, we will advise you of the purpose of the survey e.g. to gain information for the club to improve services etc. Participation in surveys is always optional. The collection of such information enables us to build up a profile of clients who use our products and services and to remain client focused in our delivery of products and services that will enhance the members time spent at our Club.

Why we collect personal information
Any personal information provided by you to the Club (e.g. name, address, date of birth and contact details), including information collected as a result of a membership card being placed in a gaming machine or other club machine that is linked to a player tracking system (not ATMs) that may provide a benefit or service to you, will be protected.
