We consider that holding your personal information is important and we take your right to privacy very seriously. To this end, we have issued this Privacy Statement to explain why we collect your personal information and how we may use or disclose it.
We collect personal information such as your name, address, age, sex, telephone contact, and membership status. The full details of the personal information we collect can be found in the questions we ask and/or in the forms you have completed in relation to your membership of the Australian Baseball Federation.
In some situations we may have collected your personal information from a third party such as your club or relevant state association.
We collect only the information about you that we need in order to provide you with services within the sport of baseball and to meet our obligations to relevant government sports bodies. If you do not provide the personal information we seek, we might not be able to provide you with services relating to participation in the sport of baseball.
We may use your personal information for research and to assist us to obtain better information about participants in the sport of baseball. We may also use the information to provide you with special offers from companies associated with our Membership Rewards Scheme. If you do not wish to receive this information you should contact our Privacy Officer who will ensure that we comply with your wishes.
From time to time, we may disclose your information to certain third parties. If we do this we require these parties to protect your personal information in the same way we do. The types of the organisations we may disclose your personal information to include:
· external sports industry bodies including but not limited to the Australian Sports Commission and the Australian Sports Drug Agency
· companies with which we are associated in relation to the operation of baseball;
· government agencies (as part of our regulatory or statutory obligations);
· if we collect your information from someone else or another entity, then we may disclose your personal information to that person or entity and
· your agent.
All of the personal information we hold about you is held on a password protected database or in secure files. Only authorised officers of the Australian Baseball Federation may access the database and only for one of the purposes above. Once we no longer have a need for your personal information we will destroy or de-identify it.
If you agree to have your personal information included in our database we will take it that you consent to us collecting, using, disclosing and handling your personal information as set out in this Privacy Statement.
You can request access to the personal information we hold about you and you may ask us at any time to correct it where you believe it is incorrect or out of date. There will be no fee for accessing your personal information.
