This statement sets out our policy for dealing with your personal, community or mercantile information. AMSANT is committed to privacy and confidentiality with regard to any personal, community or mercantile client information received by the organisation consistent with the Australian Privacy Principles and current privacy legislation.
Contracted parties are not authorised by AMSANT to use personal information for anything other than the purpose for which the information was supplied. Where the law requires disclosure of personal information AMSANT will comply with court orders or Government subpoena, such as a vehicle licensing authority or the Australian Taxation Office. AMSANT may disclose personal information where the individual consents in doing so but AMSANT reserves the right that this request be made in writing. Other than what is stated within this policy, we will not sell, distribute, or disclose any personal information to any third party.
Type of Information Collected
When visiting the AMSANT site, users will not be required to provide any personal information unless specific additional information about a particular AMSANT service or a specific request for an AMSANT event is sought. In that case, contact details would be sought with a request for any necessary information to enable adequate response to the request. The information provided may also be retained for further reference but shall not be used for any other purpose unless agreed to.
Security of personal information
Security of personal information is important to us and we take all reasonable precautions to protect personal information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Some of the ways used to protect personal and Community information include:
- external and internal premises security;
- restricting access to personal information only to staff who need it to perform their day to day functions;
- maintaining technology products to prevent unauthorised computer access or damage to electronically stored information, such as requiring identifiers and passwords, firewalls and anti-virus software; and
- maintaining physical security over paper records.

AMSANT is not liable for any interference or damage to a user’s computer system, software, or data occurring in connection with this website. We strongly recommend users take appropriate measures to ensure their computer is protected against third party interference whilst on the web.
