Why RLG Collects, Uses and Discloses Personal Information

Riverland Group will use the personal information it collects for the purpose disclosed at the time of collection, or otherwise as set out in this Privacy Policy. Riverland Group will not use your personal information for any other purpose without first seeking your consent, or where authorised or required by law.

Riverland Group will collect personal information for the following purposes:
• to enable you to make a reservation, booking or enquiry at one of our venues;
• to provide you with our goods and services at a venue;
• to respond to your enquiry or otherwise send you information for which you have requested;

• to register you for events, competitions or promotions; or
• to assist us to make our services, products and customer experiences more valuable or useful to you.

Riverland Group may also use and disclose your personal information to a trusted third party who also holds other information about you. This third party may combine that information in order to enable it and us to develop anonymised consumer insights so that we can better understand your preferences, needs at venue and interests.

You may opt-out of receiving direct marketing from Riverland Group or third parties through the unsubscribe function that will be made available to you with each direct marketing communication.

How RLG Stores and Protects Personal Information

Riverland Group may hold your personal information in either electronic or hard copy form. In so doing, we have taken numerous steps to protect your personal information from misuse, interference and loss, and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

Additionally, Riverland Group takes reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information when we no longer need it.

The internet is not a secure method of transmitting information. Accordingly, other than where Riverland Group uses secure socket layer technology (SSL) to ensure information (such as credit card information) is securely transmitted and processed, Riverland Group cannot and does not accept responsibility for the security of information you send to or receive from us over the internet, or for any unauthorised access or use of that information.

Does RLG Send Personal Information Overseas?

Riverland Group may disclose some of your personal information, for the purposes described above, to organisations outside of Australia. Where information is held in services hosted internationally, United States of America for example, they may not have the same protection as set out in the Australian Privacy Principles, and Riverland Group may not require such organisations to comply with the Australian Privacy Principles.

How You Can Access Your Personal Information?

Riverland Group will take reasonable steps to make sure that the personal information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete and up to date. If any of your personal details change, such as your address or phone number, please contact our Privacy Officer by email or at the address detailed below.
