Federation of Community, Sporting and Workers Clubs Ltd has adopted and is bound by the National Privacy Principles set out in Schedule 3 of the Australian Privacy Act 1988 (the Act). This document sets out the Federation of Community, Sporting and Workers Clubs Ltd Privacy Policy effective from 1st February 2016 which we trust will answer your questions regarding how we respect and treat the information you provide to us.

Collection of Personal Information

There are two categories of information we collect:

  • General Information: General Information is anonymous data that we use to analyse trends, gather broad demographic information for general use and to help us understand your needs and wants so we can improve the quality of your stay with us. General information includes the number of room nights booked and used, guest’s gender, age, where guests are from, room rate, etc.
  • Personal Information: Personal Information is any information that personally identifies you.

When you make a reservation for one of our Units, we may ask you for personal details such as your name, home address, and work telephone number, club membership number, credit or debit card details and how the account will be settled. We may also ask whether you have any room preferences, disabilities or other lifestyle information. On check in we will ask for proof that you are the person who made the reservation and for proof of club membership which can qualify you for the members’ rate or as a walk in guest are the person who is actually booking the room. Generally this will be in the form of an identification document such as a driver’s license, state ID card or passport. (In other words a document showing photo identification)

We require this identification for two main security reasons:
The first reason is to protect your safety. Requiring an ID for check-in is a way to make sure that only registered, paid guests are admitted to the Resort units, and prevents strangers or persons of ill intent from comprising your personal safety.

The second reason is to protect you and ourselves from fraudulent credit card use. Requiring identification upon check-in is a way that we can ensure that the room and services were not booked with a credit card not belonging to you.

While staying with us, we may record the number of times you have stayed and the services you have used and other details you supply to us.

Personal Information may also be collected from information you provide to us if you enter a competition run by or on behalf of the Resort or you reply to a survey conducted by or on behalf of the Resort.

We may also collect certain Personal Information if the law requires us to collect it or receive it from other sources.

Sensitive Information

From time to time we may collect or receive information or an opinion about your origin, beliefs, membership, or health. This type of information is known as sensitive information. The Federation of Community, Sporting and Workers Clubs Ltd takes greater precautions as to who has access to it and what they use it for. Generally speaking, except as stated in this privacy policy, sensitive information will not be used or disclosed for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was collected without your consent. Where we collect sensitive information from you, we will disclose to you the reason for seeking it. If we are to disclose it to an entity outside the Federation of Community, Sporting and Workers Clubs Ltd, we will seek your consent. However, we may disclose sensitive information to the police or where required by law, without your consent.

Consequences of not providing Personal Information

If you do not provide us with Personal Information that we consider essential or necessary, we regret the inconvenience, but may have no choice other than to decline your reservation, function booking, entry into a competition or access to our Resorts


If you wish to stay in a Federation resort on an anonymous basis, we may be able to accommodate your request, but we do not guarantee it. If we do accept your stay with us on an anonymous basis, you will be charged the non-members rate, you will not be able to make a booking in advance, you will need to pay for your accommodation at the time you check-in, and leave with us an amount of money we specify as a security bond (which will be refunded to you on your departure if your room is left in order and you have paid for all services or facilities provided to you or requested by you during your stay).

Primary purpose for which The Federation of Community, Sporting and Workers Clubs Ltd collects information

Some of the information that we ask for is essential such as your name and billing details. These are used so we can contact you during your stay for reasons such as security, letting you know if a message of some form arrives, if a visitor is waiting for you in the office, and so we can ensure we are paid for goods or services provided to you or requested by you.

If you make a reservation, we may also request your contact details, club membership details credit card details or the like. This information is used to pay the deposit, your accommodation or a security bond and so we can identify you when you check-in.

If you supply lifestyle information it may be used for two primary purposes. The first helps us to try and meet or exceed your expectations. For example, if we know which room you prefer when you check-in to our Resort, we can hopefully provide you with the unit you prefer.

The second is to make your stay as comfortable as possible by giving you peace of mind. For example, by providing us with information regarding a disability, our friendly staff can take this into consideration when selecting your room. This information may also be used by our staff, contractors or emergency services in the event of an emergency to assist with your well-being.

Secondary purpose for which The Federation of Community, Sporting and Workers Clubs collects information

Although we may use Personal Information while you are staying with us for the purposes described above, we may also use Personal Information for other purposes.
We may use your Personal Information to update you on news, events, and special deals or if we believe we have something to offer you which may be of interest. This will usually be done via a mail out, however, if you have supplied an e-mail address or registered for newsletter, you may be contacted by e-mail. From time to time, we may also SMS or call you regarding this.

Personal Information may also be used if we need to contact you in relation to matters that arose from your stay with us.

Who information is disclosed to and why

If you have made a reservation (or have stayed) with us, we may disclose your name and date of your reservation (or stay) to our advertisers, government agencies, your club, the media or publish such information in our employee newsletters or promotion and marketing materials.
Other than as stated in this policy, we will not share your Personal Information with a third party outside of government agencies or senior management unless a third party, such as a contractor, needs to know the relevant Personally Identifiable Information in order to perform their duties. If we do intend to disclose such information, we will try to either let you know at the time we collect it, or seek your consent.

  • Maintenance.

  • adopted or are bound by the National Privacy Principles under the Act; or
  • implemented a privacy policy acceptable to us

Requests for access to personal information

If you desire to access your personal information held by us we are happy to assist you with your request (subject to exceptions where relevant), but before we do, we may require that you prove your identity to us. When you make a request in person, we may require you produce some form of photo identification such as a passport or an Australian drivers license. Where you make a request by other means, we may request you supply us with particulars so we can check them with our files and satisfy ourselves as to your identity. We reserve the right to request that your request is in writing. We have adopted this policy so there can be no confusion as to what information is sought, who it was sought by, and when it was sought. This allows us to create an audit trail of how the request has been handled. Where a request is made, any correspondence or application may be kept and added to your Personal Information.

How we respond to your request will depend on a number of factors including:

  • the sort of information you seek to have access to;
  • the way you made the request (in person, facsimile, e-mail, mail etc);
  • where the information you have requested is stored or located;
  • how the information is stored;
  • the technology that has access to the information; and
  • any exceptions to disclosure that may apply to the information sought.

If we are unsure of exactly what Personal Information you are seeking, we may ask you whether you want access to all the Personal Information we hold or just a part of it.

We will not charge you for making a request to access Personal Information held by us. We may, however, charge you for the cost of making the Personal Information available to you. The cost of making information available to you will depend on the information sought.

Where we deny or refuse access to Personal Information, we will provide you with written reasons for our decision.

We may consider using an intermediary to allow limited access to Personal Information that would otherwise be denied to you under one of the permitted exceptions. If it is decided to use an intermediary, you will be liable to pay the intermediaries’ fees and expenses.
