This policy sets out the information handling practices for the Queensland Media Club, including the website.
Personal information means information or an opinion, true or false and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an identified or reasonably identifiable individual.

2. Overview
The functions and activities for which we collect and hold personal information are:
• Managing registrations for Queensland Media Club events, including the Queensland Parliamentary Ball

3. Collection of personal information
We collect and hold information that registrants provide through their registration to attend Queensland Media Club events. This includes, if applicable,
• Sensitive information such as dietary or mobility requirements
• Image (video or photographs) and/or sound recordings
• We keep a record of the events registrants have attended.

4. Notice where you give us information about third parties
If you give us personal information about any other individuals (eg guests attending a Queensland Media Club event) we ask that you tell the individual that you have done so and make them aware of this Policy, for example, by sending them the link to it.

5. Uses of Personal Information
We use information we collect and hold through registrations for events to:
• Administer and meet requirements for a particular event
• Improve events
• Target marketing communications
We will not use your personal information for any purpose which you would not reasonably expect unless it is consistent with the Privacy Act. If we think a registrant may not expect a particular use of information we hold about them, we will ask for consent before we use it for that purpose.

6. Sound and image recordings of events
We use sound and image recordings of Queensland Media Club events to enable us to improve our events, to provide a public access online video after each event, and for promotional purposes.
If you do not want us to use your image, please contact us (contact details below).

7. Marketing communications
We send marketing material to registrants about whom we have records in order to give you information about future Queensland Media Club events.
We give you the chance to opt-out of receiving marketing material in communications we have with you, such as emails and event notifications, or you can contact us using the details below.
Unless you have opted out, we will provide marketing communications to registrants about future Queensland Media Club events.

8. Disclosure (sharing) of Personal Information
Sensitive information
We only disclose sensitive personal information such as dietary or health information for the purposes for which you gave it to us or for directly related purposes you would reasonably expect.

We disclose the name, title and post nominal of registrants to speakers, organisers, hosts or facilitators to enable them to carry out their role in relation to an event, for example, to organise table lists. We also disclose this information to sponsors (upon request) to enable them to assess their level of participation at an event.

Where authorised or required by law
As authorised by the Privacy Act, we disclose personal information in connection with law enforcement activities by enforcement bodies.
