Also, Precedent Productions 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 Precedent Productions 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:

How is personal information collected?

Precedent Productions is the founder and co-ordinator of many prestigious business award programs. In order to provide customers with quality award programs, Precedent Productions has the ability to capture information from the entries received and downloading of the Helpful Hints. This information is captured through two different sales channels. A call centre which provides telephone assistants service for business applicants and ticket purchasers; Online ticket sales available through our website. These sales channels reflect the different ways in which Precedent Productions collects personal information about customers. Collection will occur at the time you enter your business or purchase tickets to the Presentation Evening.

What personal information does Precedent Productions collect, and why?

If you register your business to be part of any one of our awards programs or purchase tickets from Precedent Productions, we need to collect personal information about you, including business name, your name, address, telephone number and email address. The main reason we need this information is so we can contact you if your business has been successful in the selection stages 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. We may also need some of this information in order to process your payment (for example, if you pay by credit card online). 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 any one of our awards programs, your details (business, address, telephone and email) will be made available for the purpose of promoting your business' success. Precedent Productions may use your contact details to send you information about the Awards in future. If you no longer wish to receive such information, contact Precedent Productions (the contact details of our Privacy Officer are at Section 8 ).

Will personal information be given to anyone else?

Precedent Productions does not sell personal information. However, as explained below, Precedent Productions may disclose personal information about you in some circumstances. Unless you tell us otherwise, Precedent Productions may disclose your contact details to sponsors 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 Precedent Productions provides your personal information to venues or promoters, or engages contractors and service providers to handle personal information, we require these organisations to agree to comply with our Privacy Policy and with strict conditions governing how personal information is to be handled. Otherwise, Precedent Productions will only disclose personal information if this is required by law or permitted under the Privacy Act.
