Sponsorship Ready Privacy Policy
Sponsorship Ready and their Australian related bodies corporate (we, our, us)
recognise the importance of protecting the privacy and the rights of individuals in
relation to their personal information. This document is our Australian privacy policy
and it tells you how our Australian entities collect and manage your personal
What is your personal information?
When used in this privacy policy, the term “personal information” has the meaning
given to it in the Act. In general terms, it is any information that can be used to
personally identify you. This may include your name, address, telephone number,
email address, profession or occupation and images or photographs. If the
information we collect personally identifies you, or you are reasonably identifiable
from it, the information will be considered personal information.
What personal information do we collect and hold?
We may collect the following types of personal information:
• Full Name
• Mailing or street address or business name
• Email address
• Telephone number
• Age or birth date
• Professions, occupation or job title
• Details of the products and services you have purchased from us or which you
have enquired about, together with any additional information necessary to deliver
those products and services and to respond to your enquiries
• Any additional information relating to you that you provide to us directly
through our websites or indirectly through use of our websites or online presence,
through our representatives or otherwise; and
• information you provide to us through our website, lead generation forms and
social campaigns by our representatives from time to time.
We may also collect some information that is not personal information because it
does not identify you or anyone else. For example, we may collect anonymous
answers to surveys or aggregated information about how users use our website or
our computer applications.
How do we collect your personal information?
We collect your personal information directly from you unless it is unreasonable or
impracticable to do so. When collecting personal information from you, we may

• During conversations between you and our representatives;
• When you complete an application;
• When you complete a form requesting articles/updates from us.
We may also collect personal information from third parties such as credit reporting
agencies, law enforcement agencies and other government entities.
In some cases we may also collect your personal information through the use of
cookies (these being small summary files containing a unique 10 digit number).
When you access our website, we may send a cookie to your computer. This enables
us to recognise your computer and greet you each time you visit our website without
bothering you with a request to register. It also enables us to keep track of products
or services you view so that, if you consent, we can send you news about those
products or services. We also use cookies to measure traffic patterns, to determine
which areas of our website have been visited, and to measure transaction patterns in
the aggregate. We use this to research our users’ habits so that we can improve our
online products and services. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can set your
browser so that your computer does not accept them.
We may log IP addresses (that is, the electronic addresses of computers connected
to the internet) to analyse trends, administer our websites, track users movements,
and gather broad demographic information.
What happens if we can’t collect your personal information?
If you do not provide us with the personal information described above (including by
use of computer settings which do not permit acceptance of cookies), some or all of
the following may happen:
• we may not be able to provide to you products or services that you have
requested, either to our usual standard or at all;
• we may not be able to provide you with information about products and
services that you may want, including information about discounts, sales or special
promotions; or
• we may be unable to tailor the content of our websites to your preferences
and your experience of our websites may not be as enjoyable or useful.
For what purposes do we collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information?
We collect personal information about you so that we can perform our business
activities and functions and to provide the best possible quality of customer service.
We collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information for the following
• to provide products and services to you and to send communications
requested by you;
• to answer enquiries and provide information or advice about existing and new
products or services;
• to provide you with access to protected areas of our websites and our
computer applications (“apps”);

authority of any country (or political sub-division of a country).
Your personal information will not be shared, sold, rented or disclosed other than as
described in this Privacy Policy.
To whom may we disclose your information?
We may disclose your personal information to:
• our employees, related bodies corporate, contractors or service providers for
the purposes of operation of our websites or our business, fulfilling requests by you,
and to otherwise provide products and services to you including, without limitation,
web hosting providers, IT systems administrators, registry providers, mailing houses,
couriers, payment processors, data entry service providers, electronic network
administrators, debt collectors, and professional advisors such as accountants,
solicitors, business advisors and consultants;
• suppliers and other third parties with whom we have commercial
relationships, for business, marketing, and related purposes; and
• any organisation for any authorised purpose with your express consent.
We may combine or share any information that we collect from you with information
collected by any of our related bodies corporate within and outside Australia.
Direct marketing materials
We may send you direct marketing communications and information about our
products and services that we consider may be of interest to you. These
communications may be sent in various forms, including mail, SMS, fax and email, in
accordance with applicable marketing laws, such as the Spam Act 2003 (Cth). If you
indicate a preference for a method of communication, we will endeavour to use that
method whenever practical to do so. In addition, at any time you may opt-out of
receiving marketing communications from us by contacting us (see the details
below) or by using opt-out facilities provided in the marketing communications and
we will then ensure that your name is removed from our mailing list.
We do not provide your personal information to other organisations for the purposes
of direct marketing.
How can you access and correct your personal information?
You may request access to any personal information we hold about you at any time
by contacting us (see the details below). If we hold information that you are entitled
to access, we will try to provide you with suitable means of accessing it (for example,
by mailing or emailing it to you). We may charge you a fee to cover our
administrative and other reasonable costs in providing the information to you. We
will not charge for the making of the request and we will not charge for our making
any corrections to your personal information.
There may be instances where we cannot grant you access to the personal
information we hold. For example, we may need to refuse access if granting access
would interfere with the privacy of others or if it would result in a breach of
confidentiality. If that happens, we will give you written reasons for any refusal.
If you believe that personal information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or
inaccurate, then you may ask us to amend it. Upon any such request, we will
consider whether the information requires amendment. If we do not agree that
there are grounds for amendment then we will add a note to the personal
information stating that you disagree with it.
What is the process for complaining about a breach of privacy?
If you believe that your privacy has been breached, please contact us and provide as
much detail as possible about your concern so that we can fully investigate it.
