The Australian Conental Equestrian Group Inc. (ACE) is required to comply with the Privacy Act 1988 and the National Privacy Principles in collecting, using, disclosing and disposing of Members’ personal information.

Personal information is any information that can be used to identify a person. The types of information ACE collects include Members’ names, addresses and other contact details and stud information.

The purposes for which ACE collects such information are as follows:

  • To facilitate communication between Members.

  • Maintaining ACE’s Online Stud Book and horse’s Certificate of Registration.
  • Complying with ACE’s legal obligations.

In completing and returning to ACE any request by ACE for information relating to the Member, a Member will be considered to have consented to the collection of the information and to disclosure of the information for the purposes outlined above. If Members do not consent to such disclosure, formal notice in writing should be given to ACE. In this event, ACE will only use a Member’s personal information for the purpose of contacting the member, and any such information will not be disclosed to Management.

The Society will not disclose a Member’s personal information for any other purpose without the Member’s specific written consent.

In accordance with the National Privacy Principles, ACE will endeavour to ensure that:

  • Personal information is kept secure.
  • Personal information will be maintained accurately. Members should contact the Society to update any personal information that ACE holds relating to them.
  • Personal information will be destroyed when it is no longer required for any purpose for which it was collected.
  • Members may gain access to their personal information held by ACE and may correct it if necessary.
