The Committee of Management of the Riverside Golf Club is committed to the protection of personal information of members. The Club is subject to the national Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act. The National Privacy Principles govern the way the Club will collect, use, disclose and secure information about members. They also permit the member to access the information the Club holds about that member in order for it to be corrected or updated.

Member information is required to run the business of the Club. The Club may collect and hold information such as themember’s name, age, address, contact details, gender, employment, next of kin and other information relevant to Club membership. Information collected will be used principally for the purpose of managing the affairs of the Club and helping members maximise the benefits of membership. This may include providing members with information about services and facilities at the Club, including events, functions and other Club activities.

Any sensitive information, such as health information, or the use of electric carts on the golf course, may be collected as required to comply with the rules of the Club. The Club has, and will continue to have, data quality procedures in place to check that personal information about members is accurate, complete, up to date and will aim to ensure that information is held securely at all times.

Members have a right to access personal information pertaining to themselves, held by the Club, on request, unless one of the exceptions under the legislation will apply. If a member establishes that information held is not accurate, complete or up to date, then reasonable steps will be taken to correct the information. The Riverside Golf Club Committee of Management will be designated to manage the Privacy Policy.

If members have any complaints or concerns about privacy matters, they should contact the General Manager. It is understood members will be able to contact the Privacy Commissioner in regard to any matter.
