Privacy Policy

We respect your personal information at Browns Corner Hotel and this Privacy Policy sets out the principles that we will follow in the management of your personal information collected. Personal information is generally defined as information that can identify a person. Browns Corner Hotel has policies and procedures to ensure that all personal information, no matter how or where it is obtained, is handled sensitively, securely and in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles.

1. Compliance with the Privacy Legislation

Browns Corner Hotel is committed to protecting the privacy of individual’s personal information and is bound by the Australian Privacy Principals set out in the Privacy Act 1988 (Commonwealth) (“the Act”). We will only collect, use or disclose personal information in accordance with the Act and our Privacy Policy.

2. Collection of Personal Information

Browns Corner Hotel only collects personal information that is necessary for us to provide one of our many business functions or activities. Personal details such as your name and address will only be collected where we have a clear business reason to do so, such as providing products and services to you. We will only collect information from you directly from your use of our products and services.

We may also collect information about you because we are required to do so by law. There are laws that affect the gaming and liquor industry, such as Commonwealth Anti-Money Laundering legislation, which requires personal information to be collected to verify your identity.

In certain circumstances, if you do not provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the products or services you want or let you know about our other services from across our group that you may be interested in.

3. Types of Personal Information Collected

Browns Corner Hotel offers a diverse array of hospitality experiences including bistros, restaurants, sports bars, electronic gaming, accommodation and nightclubs, therefore the purpose and type of personal information which we may collect from you will vary depending upon the relationship you may have with us. For example, we may require certain information about you should you apply for employment, which is different from the information you supply if you are entering a competition or joining a loyalty program.

The most common situations where we may collect personal information from you include entry conditions, gaming procedures and regulations, loyalty programs, marketing and promotions, bookings, employment applications, social media and situations where the law requires.

The most common types of personal information we may collect include:
- identification information such as your name, address and date of birth;
- contact details such as email address and phone numbers; and
- financial details such as tax file number and bank details.

4. Use and Disclosure

Browns Corner Hotel will only use or disclose personal information for the purpose which was either specified or reasonably apparent at the time of collection. We may also use or disclose it for other related purposes for which you would reasonably expect it to be used.

Browns Corner Hotel does not generally disclose personal information to third parties except:

- where third party contractors appointed by Browns Corner Hotel require access to personal information held by us to perform services for us or on our behalf;
- where Browns Corner Hotel is required or authorised by law; or
- with your consent.

Should third parties be given access to personal information, Browns Corner Hotel requires that our contractors are obliged to keep that personal information confidential and not to use or disclose it for any purpose other than performing services for us or on our behalf.

Browns Corner Hotel does not disclose personal information to any overseas recipients.

5. Marketing

Given Browns Corner Hotel offers a diverse array of hospitality experiences, we would like to inform you of our products and services from time to time. Browns Corner Hotel may use your personal information that we collected from you to send marketing or promotional material about our food and beverage offers, entertainment and events, competitions and promotions or membership and loyalty programs.

We may conduct these marketing activities via email, telephone, SMS, social media or other such means. Browns Corner Hotel will generally only send you marketing material on an ‘opt-in’ basis. If you no longer wish to receive the material, we will always provide an easy opportunity for you to ‘opt-out’ or you may contact us and we will process your request as soon as practicable.
