The Federal Group recognises that your privacy is very important and that you have a right to control your personal information. We acknowledge that providing personal information to us is an act of trust and we take that trust seriously. This policy will govern how The Federal Group handles your personal information and safeguards your privacy.
The Federal Group is committed to complying with the National Privacy Principles for the Fair Handling of Personal Information developed by the Australian Federal Privacy Commissioner. Furthermore, The Federal Group will comply with any laws introduced to strengthen the protection of consumers' privacy.
Collection of Personal Information
Many of The Federal Group’s operations allow you to interact with us anonymously, such as our bar, dining, entertainment, tourism, conference and gaming facilities. In the conduct of these operations we do not generally require you to provide your personal information in order to receive or participate in these services.
Your personal information is only collected with your consent.
The type of personal information that we collect from you will depend upon what dealings you have with us. The Federal Group generally obtains your personal information, such as your name, address and contact details, where required to provide accommodation, hotel, entertainment, Rewards Club and Health Club services.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Personal information is only used within the Group in the provision of services for which it was obtained and may be used to provide customers, through direct marketing, with knowledge of other services and promotions conducted by the Group. Your personal information is not sold or passed to third parties for their marketing purposes.
Security of Personal Information
We will make all reasonable endeavours to protect your personal information securely against unauthorised use and access. Your personal information will be recorded, amended and used only by authorised persons who are required to keep your information confidential.
Sharing Information with Other Organisations
In some circumstances, we may disclose your information to our contractors and service providers, but only to the extent necessary to operate our business or provide you with the products and/or services you have requested. We require these organisations to undertake to meet the requirements of the Privacy legislation and agree to strict conditions governing how your personal information may be used.
While we will not use your information for any purpose without your consent, we reserve the right to use information in circumstances relating to the public interest. These circumstances may be related to:
• A legal demand for the information from a law enforcement agency;
• A public or individual health and safety issue; or
• The protection of our rights and property, including the protection of the integrity of our operations.
Your information may also be disclosed to members of the Australian Casino Association and credit reference agencies for the purposes of carrying out credit checks, if you have applied for credit or cheque cashing facilities.
