This is the Privacy Notice of Andrew Duffield Music Pty.Ltd. ABN 25 006 984 961 on behalf of the musical group Models (hereinafter referred to as “Models”, “we”, “us” and “our”).
The Australian Privacy Principles
The Australian Government introduced new legislation, effective 12 March 2014, which further protects the privacy of individuals. These principles replace the National Privacy Principles that came into force on 21 December 2001. You can find out more about these principles by calling the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner on 1300 36 39 92 or through their website at http://www.oaic.gov.au/.
Models respects and upholds your right to privacy protection under the Australian Privacy Principles in regulating how we collect, use, disclose and hold your personal information. We have a detailed policy and set of procedures to ensure that only authorised staff have access to your personal information and that it remains confidential and is only used for appropriate purposes and in accordance with this notice.
The personal information we collect, and the reasons why
Your personal information is only collected as is necessary for specific functions or activities, or to enable Models to provide requested services. All information is collected in a non-intrusive, lawful and fair manner.
Models are very grateful to the many thousands of people around Australia who have supported us by purchasing music or attending gigs. When you give us personal information such as your name, address, telephone number and email address, we record it on our database and may use it to contact you in the future.
We may use your personal information to send you information on upcoming events, new music, tours / gigs, or other items relating to the band or its members. Each time we send you a direct marketing communication we will provide you with a simple way to ’opt out’ of receiving similar communications in the future.
You can also let us know that you do not wish to receive any further communications by contacting us (addressing your concern to the Privacy Officer).
We will offer you the option of not identifying yourself or of using a pseudonym where it is practical to do so.
Opting out or modifying your information
If you want to change any information that you have previously given us, or if you want to opt out of future communications please contact us as detailed below.
How we collect your personal information
We collect your personal information when you provide it to Models in a number of ways including but not limited to:
- completing a form on the Models website
- completing a form at an event
You may be photographed when you attend Models events however wherever practical we would seek to obtain your consent prior to using the image obtained.
How we keep your personal information secure
Information you provide to us is stored securely in our database and only accessed by those authorised by Models.
Disclosing your personal information
Models will not provide your personal information to any other individuals or organisations without your prior consent except where required by law to do so or where that information is provided on a confidential basis to contractors who provide services to Models (for example database management, printing and mailing). In these cases, we ensure that our contractors are also bound by the Australian Privacy Principles to keep your personal information confidential.
Models are very thankful to people who are willing to share their personal stories about their memories or experiences with the band and their music with others through media stories and in our newsletters. We will only use your personal information for publicity purposes or as stories in newsletters with your express written permission.
Models may, from time to time, include selected messages from event sponsors, collaborators or third parties in our communications, however we will not provide your details to any third party for marketing purposes without your prior consent.
Transfer of information overseas would normally only occur for data processing purposes, for example third party payment facilitators may process their data off-shore. The Models’ payment gateway currently processes data in Australia. Models will not transfer your personal information overseas or into the “cloud” unless we have taken reasonable steps to ensure that the information which is being transferred will not be held, used or disclosed by the recipient of the information in a manner which is inconsistent with the Australian Privacy Principles.
Models will sometimes use third party service providers to conduct surveys and facilitate information collection and event registration. Some of these service providers conduct all or part of their business overseas and so your personal information may be transferred overseas as a result. Models will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your information is not used in a manner inconsistent with the Australian Privacy Principles.
