Respecting Your Privacy

Your Privacy and your rights are important to us. Contact us if you have any concerns.

The Swiss Club of Victoria (SCV) is committed to supporting the National Privacy Principles for the Fair Handling of Personal Information which set clear standards for the collection, access, storage and use of personal information which SCV obtains as part of its business operations.

The SCV respects its Members right to privacy of their personal information, which is paramount. SCV has policies and procedures to ensure that all personal information, no matter how or where it is obtained, is handled sensitively, securely, and in accordance with the National Privacy Principles.

This Privacy Policy sets out:

  • Matters regarding information SCV may collect about its Members and Non Members;
  • SCV policies on the management of personal information;
  • Generally, what sort of information SCV holds, for what purposes, and how SCV collects, holds, uses and discloses that information;
  • How Members can check, update or delete your personal details;
  • SCV Internet security procedures;
  • SCV use of Cookies, and
  • SCV compliance with applicable laws.

What Personal Information Do We Collect And Store?

SCV takes measures to protect all personal information from unauthorised access, loss, misuse, disclosure or alteration. SCV also destroys or permanently deidentifies personal information when we are advised that it is no longer required. The types of measures SCV takes vary with the type of information, and how it is collected and stored.

Membership Applications:

Members who provide contact details on their application are automatically added to our database for newsletters, email communications and special offers. Non Members who sign up may be prompted to enter their name, title, company, postal address, email address, and phone number. They will be added to our database and sent the sign up items that were have requested.

All information on application form is stored on a data base used by the committee to manage membership details. This information is not disclosed to any other parties unless required by law.

Internet Activities:

In browsing the SCV websites no personal information is required and visitors will remain anonymous during their entire visit. SCV Facebook, Twitter and other social media forums, however, do collect personal information and this is done so in accordance with the standard guidelines of those forums.

Photographs or Images:

We reserve the right to take photographs or videotape at any events, whether they be member events, public events or other events we are involved with. By becoming a member or interacting with us you give us the right to print, publish and use these images freely for promotional purposes.

This information is transmitted to SCV or its representatives only for completing the commercial transaction and will not be stored for future use.

Sign Ups:

Non Members who sign up may be prompted to enter their name, title, company, postal address, email address, and phone number. They will be added to our database and sent the sign up items that were have requested.

How Is Personal Information Used?

Personal information supplied to SCV allows it to provide the services relevant to club matters and is intended to keep people informed about club activities and events.

Please note that in order to operate the Website or deliver a service SCV may sometimes share personal information with a subcontractor. Where this is necessary SCV obtains their undertaking to comply with the National Privacy Principles for the Fair Handling of Information.

Except to the extent that we engage contractors as noted above to assist us to provide a better service, SCV does not provide any personal information or mailing lists containing personal information to any other organisations for their marketing purposes.

How Can You Check And Update Your Personal Details And Preferences?

How Can You Remove Your Personal Details?

Non Members can remove your personal information from us by contacting the relevant participant or organisation by email. Please allow 7 days for your request to be processed. Once removed, you will then not receive any correspondence from us without re-registering.

Members can generally only remove their personal information from us by cancelling their membership.

Are We Secure?

To browse our web sites there is no need to offer a secure site as sensitive information is not transmitted. However during the purchase process all transactions are Secure and uses Secure Sockets Layer which encrypts your personal information and credit card details before they are transmitted via the web. This ensures that all personal information cannot be read by others or tampered with en route.

What Are Cookies And How Do We Use Them?

We do not use cookies for browsing our web sites. However during the purchase process such as through PayPal cookies may be used to make the shopping experience easier. It saves reentering certain details each time you shop by recording your unique PayPal number. The customer number is then linked with PayPal’s database that contains the information you supplied to them on registration. SCV does not receive any information from PayPal other than that described in “What Personal Information Do We Collect And Store?”

Do We Comply With Applicable Laws?

There are a number of pieces of legislation with which SCV must comply, including ACCC and ASIC regulations in the course of business.
