Your privacy is important.

Screenwest (Australia) Ltd’s is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Commonwealth Privacy Act (1988), which requires that we comply with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) set out in that Act and any amendments including those that came into force on 12 March 2014.

The current Privacy Act allows you to:

  • know why your personal information is being collected, how it will be used and who it will be disclosed to
  • have the option of not identifying yourself, or of using a pseudonym. Screenwest will still require your full name if you are seeking funding
  • ask for access to your personal information
  • stop receiving unwanted direct marketing
  • ask for your personal information to be corrected if it is incorrect
  • make a complaint about an entity covered by the Privacy Act, if you consider they have mishandled your personal information.

The Act requires organisations to have a Privacy Policy in place, as such this online statement outlines Screenwest’s policy on how we use and manage all personal information provided to or collected by the organisation.

Screenwest may from time to time review and update this Privacy Policy to consider new laws and technology, changes to the organisation’s operations and practices and to make sure it remains appropriate to the changing legal environment.

The type of information Screenwest collects and holds includes but is not limited to personal information, including sensitive information, including but not limited to:

  • Name
  • Contact Details including postal address, home address, email address, phone number

NOTE: Where Screenwest is provided information about a third party event – for example when populating a website calendar entry – we will accept the request as consent to publish the provided details along with any contact details for more information.


How will Screenwest use the personal information provided?

Screenwest will use personal information it collects from you for the primary purpose of collection and for such other secondary purposes that are related to the primary purpose of collection and reasonable expected or to which you have consented.

In relation to direct marketing, Screenwest will use your information for direct marketing where you have provided that information and you are likely to expect direct marketing, however any communication will include a clear opt out.

Your personal information that is no longer required will be de-identified or destroyed. In many circumstances however, it will be kept for marketing purposes according to your consent or opt-in requirements.
