Wollondilly Business Awards
Privacy matters to us and management of Uniquely Local respects the privacy of all our customers and business contacts, and is committed to safeguarding the personal information which you provide us. Also, Uniquely Local is subject to the requirements of the National Privacy Principles which are contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (the Privacy Act).
What information do we collect?
Uniquely Local is the Event management of Wollondilly Business Awards. For the purpose of presenting these awards Uniquely Local offers business owners, customers and the general public a means to register their nominations, place a vote plus purchase Finalists and Guest tickets. The information required for this purpose is as follows.
Online registration completed by the businesses themselves and the general public requires a business name, business owners name, business contact details, physical business address (or as much as is known if nominated by a member of the public)
Printed nomination forms that are located in various business premises for the general public to nominate or vote are required to have the business name, business owners name, contact details, physical business address.
Online voting will require the voters email address.
Online ticket sales require a guest name and contact details including email address and telephone number.
These methods are the only way Uniquely Local will collect your personal information with regard to nominations, voting and ticket sales.
Why is this information collected?
If you register your business to be part of the Wollondilly Business Awards, or wish to nominate your favourite business, or wish to purchase tickets for the event, we need to collect personal information about you, including your name, address, telephone number and email address (if available). The main reason we need this information is so we can contact you if your business has been successful in the nomination stage of the program, send you your finalist material and invitation to the Awards Cocktail Evening, inform you in the case of an event cancellation or to notify change of event details or replacement of lost tickets. We may also need some of this information in order to process your payment (for example, if you pay by credit card online). Unless you tell us otherwise, we will use personal information about you for marketing and research purposes. If you are a Finalist or Winner in any one of our awards categories, your details (business, address, telephone) will be made available for the purpose of promoting your business' success. Uniquely Local will also notify you of the Wollondilly Business Awards future events. If you no longer wish to receive such information, contact Uniquely Local by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
What do we do with your information?
How do we look after your information?
Uniquely Local protects the personal information it collects in a secure database, in proprietary data format, which can only be read using proprietary tools. Data collected online is stored in a Microsoft SQL database, a protected, secure data centre that is unreachable by the Internet.
How do we look after non-customers information?
Uniquely Local needs to collect personal information about individuals who are not customers. This will usually arise where we collect the name and business contact details of a person who is the contact in a government agency or company with whom we deal. Uniquely Local policy is to only use personal information collected from non-customers for the main business purpose for which it was collected.
What if my information has changed?
Under the Privacy Act, you have a right to seek access to information which Uniquely Local holds about you. You also have the right to ask us to correct information about you which is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date. If you are an online customer, where you have registered to nominate, vote or purchase tickets, you are able to access or correct the personal information which Uniquely Local holds about you - simply by logging onto our website. If you are not an online customer and wish to advise us of corrections you are required to contact the management by email with the relevant identification to allow changes to be made. To provide you with access to personal information about you, Uniquely Local would usually provide you with a print-out of the relevant personal information from our databases, or if relevant, with photocopies of information stored in paper files. If you wish to access the personal information that we hold about you, please set out your request by email, including your phone number, and forward this to email@example.com. In the interests of protecting the privacy of individuals about whom we hold personal information, we will require that you verify your identity by enclosing a copy of a form of identification such as a current driver's licence or passport with your written request. If you wish to change personal information that is inaccurate or out-of-date, please contact us, with your request for correction.
What happens to my information when I register online?
Is my information disclosed to sponsors or third parties?
To try and bring you information that is of interest to you, Uniquely Local will only disclose your information if we feel it will benefit your business in relation to the Awards event. In the future we may offer Event Sponsors advertising space and if you visit our website, advertisement server companies may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information.
What if I purchase tickets online, how is my information protected?
