Compliance with Privacy Legislation
The Australasian Gaming Council (AGC) takes seriously its obligation to safeguard personal information. This policy formalises and strengthens this commitment.

Collection of Personal Information
Personal information is generally defined as information or an opinion that can identify a person. The type of personal information that the AGC may collect from you will depend upon what dealings you may have with the AGC. 

Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Our policy is that we only use or disclose personal information for the purpose which was either specified or reasonably apparent at the time we collected it. We may also use or disclose it for any other related purpose for which you would reasonably expect it to be used.

Sharing information with other organisations
The AGC will not sell your personal information to other companies. The only circumstances in which external organisations may be given access to your personal information are when our contractors and service providers are helping us operate our business or provide a service to you (for example, a company which helps maintain our computer systems). We require these organisations to agree to our Privacy Policy and to strict conditions governing how this information may be used.

Cookies
A cookie is a small data file that may be placed on the computer of a web user (usually in the browser software folder) the first time a computer visits a web site which operates cookies. If you do not wish to receive any cookies you may set your browser to refuse cookies.

Security of personal information
The AGC will take reasonable steps to protect personal information it collects and ensure it is accurate and up-to-date. Your information is held on secure servers or in storage located in controlled environments. AGC employees are required to maintain the confidentiality of any personal information held by the AGC.

Changes in the Future
The AGC reserves the right to change its Privacy Policy at any time and notify visitors by posting an updated version of the policy on its website.

AGC Links to Other Websites
The AGC provides links to other websites but as these linked websites are not under its control, the AGC is not responsible for the conduct of organisations linked to its website and we advise you to review the privacy policies of these sites before disclosing your personal information on them.
