how we collect and hold it;
the purposes for which we collect, hold, use and disclose it;
your right to access and seek correction of it; and
how you may complain about privacy matters.
2. WHAT KINDS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND HOLD?
The personal information we collect and hold is what is reasonably necessary for our business functions and activities. When we collect and hold personal information, it is of the following kinds:
your personal details such as your name, addresses, telephone numbers, email address, date of birth, age and gender;
what, how and when you buy from us or have expressed an interest in buying from us; and
your stated or likely preferences, for example whether you may be interested in particular products or promotions.
Depending on the nature of your dealings with us, we may collect and hold other types of personal information.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by www.sydneybeerweek.com.au. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Sydney Beer Week for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Sydney Beer Week website.
3. HOW DO WE COLLECT AND HOLD PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Collection of personal information: When we collect personal information about you, we do so by making a record of it. We do this when:
you communicate with us online;
you take part in our promotions, competitions, testimonials, surveys and focus groups;
you buy goods from us, whether in person or online; and
you deal with us in other ways involving a need for personal information to be provided such as when you contact us in person or by phone.
We may also collect personal information about you by accessing data from other sources and then analysing that data together with the information we already hold about you in order to learn more about your likely preferences and interests.
Sydney Beer Week uses Google Analytics to help us learn about who visits our site and what pages are being looked at.
When you visit our website, social media pages or mobile applications or click on our advertisements on the online media of other companies, we may collect information about you using technology which is not apparent to you, for example "cookies".
Most of the personal information we collect and hold about you is from your direct dealings with us. We may sometimes collect your personal information other than from you directly. For example from other suppliers who, in common with us, have a relationship with you.
Holding of personal information: Personal information we hold is generally stored in computer systems. These may be operated by us or by our service providers. If Sydney Beer Week is holding your personal information, we will take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
The ticketing of Sydney Beer Week is hosted on Eventbrite. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our tickets and services to you. Your personal information is stored through Eventbrite's data storage, databases and the general Eventbrite application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

4. WHY DO WE COLLECT, HOLD, USE AND DISCLOSE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
When we collect, hold and use your personal information, we do so primarily to sell and promote our goods and services to you and to improve on the range of our offerings. For example, to learn of your likely preferences so that we may promote our goods and services to you in a way which may be of most interest to you or to assist in investigating your enquiries.
We disclose personal information we collect for purposes which are incidental to the sale and promotion of our goods and services to you. As such, we may disclose your personal information to service providers who assist us in our day-to-day business operations (e.g. an address may be given to a courier to ensure the delivery of goods ordered by you.)
We may collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information for other purposes which are within reasonable expectations or where permitted by law.
When marketing to you, your personal information is only ever used or disclosed for Sydney Beer Week’s own purposes. You may opt out of our direct marketing to you. Our direct marketing materials will tell you how to do this.
We may de-identify your personal information. We may do this for use and disclosure of the anonymous data to determine preferences and shopping patterns.
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or Sydney Beer Week. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
