Privacy Policy

Respecting our Customers' Privacy

Murrindindi Inc respects the privacy of all our customers, network and business contacts, and is committed to safeguarding the personal information which you provide us. Also, Murrindindi Inc is subject to the requirements of the National Privacy Principles which are contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (the Privacy Act).

Our Privacy Policy outlines how we will handle personal information about you. As we collect personal information online through 'the site', this Privacy Policy also outlines our approach to online privacy issues (at 8 below).

Our Privacy Policy is divided into the following sections:

1. How is personal information collected?

Murrindindi Inc is the co-ordinator of the Murrindindi Inc Business Awards. In order to provide customers with quality award programs, we offer customers the ability to register for the business awards, and offer tickets to purchase for its awards presentation evening. This information is captured through this website and numerous other channels.

  • Printed nomination form which the general public can vote for their favourite businesses
  • Online registration completed by the businesses themselves
  • Online ticket sales available through the Eventbrite Website.

These sales channels reflect the different ways in which we collect personal information about customers. Collection will occur at the time you may nominate your business, or purchase tickets to the Presentation Evening.

2. What personal information do we collect, and why?

If you register your business to be part of the awards programs, or wish to or wish to purchase tickets from Eventbrite, we need to collect personal information about you, including your name, address, telephone number and email address (if available). The main reason we need this information is so we can contact you if your business has been successful in the nomination stage of the program, send you your finalist material and invitation to the Presentation Evening, inform you in the case of an event cancellation or to notify change of event details or replacement of lost tickets, or notify you if you are successful in winning the Award category prize.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we will use personal information about you for marketing and research purposes. If you are a Finalist or Winner in our awards program, your details (business, address, telephone) will be made available for the purpose of promoting your business' success. We may use your contact details to send you information about the Awards in future. If you no longer wish to receive such information, contact us  (the contact details of our Privacy Officer are at Section 8).

3. Will personal information be given to anyone else?

Murrindindi Inc  does not sell personal information. However, as explained below, We may disclose personal information about you in some circumstances. Unless you tell us otherwise, We may disclose your contact details to sponsors and media partners so that they can provide you with promotional material about upcoming events, products or services. We may also disclose your personal information to third party contractors and service providers who help us operate our business or to provide a service to you (for example, our contractors include a company which helps us to operate our computer systems and to send out our mail/email). If we were to  provide your personal information to sponsors, or engages contractors and service providers to handle personal information, we require these organizations to agree to comply with our Privacy Policy and with strict conditions governing how personal information is to be handled. Otherwise, we will only disclose personal information if this is required by law or permitted under the Privacy Act.

4. Security of personal information

Murrindindi Inc protects the personal information it collects in a secure database, in proprietary data format, which can only be read using proprietary tools. Data collected online is stored in a Microsoft SQL database, a protected, secure data centre that is unreachable by the Internet.

Ordinarily, Murrindindi Inc will not charge you for the cost of providing this type of access to these records. However, if we do propose to charge you, we will advise you of the relevant charge before we provide you with access.
