The South Australian Employers Chamber of Commerce Inc (Business SA) is subject to the National Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Act).
This Policy is intended to provide an overview of our policies for the handling of your personal information by Business SA. For the purposes of the Act and the Policy, your personal information is any information about you from which your identity may be reasonably ascertained.

2. How Business SA Collects, Holds, Uses and Discloses Personal Information
Business SA limits the personal information it collects to information that is necessary for the provision or promotion of Business SA membership, products and services to you. Business SA nearly always collects personal information directly from you, including from membership application forms, entry into promotions, surveys, mailing lists, websites and registration forms, as well as through communication with you.
Business SA will attempt to make you aware of the purposes for the collection of your personal information and any consequences for you if you fail to provide any information that is requested. Where personal information is not provided, Business SA may not be able to provide you with products or services.
Business SA handles personal information carefully. Storage of your personal information may be undertaken by a specialist third party at an off-site location (for example, specifically engaged by Business SA for that purpose), or it may be stored by Business SA in a secure location. Business SA will take reasonable measures to ensure that your personal information is stored securely, and Business SA has procedures designed to ensure that your personal information is not misplaced or misused, and that unauthorised access to, modification of, or disclosure of your personal information does not occur.
Security measures that may be employed from time to time may include:
- password protection of information stored in computer records;
- restricted access to certain information, to ensure that only authorised individuals are able to view this information, and only for authorised purposes;
- encryption of personal information and Business SA databases;
- network and computer security;
- physical document security, including locked offices, filing cabinets and archives; and
- periodic secure destruction of the information on the database ensure that your personal information will not be stored indefinitely.
Business SA reserves the right to refuse to provide you with further information about security procedures if doing so may compromise those procedures.
2.3 Use and Disclosure
Business SA will generally only use or disclose your personal information for the purpose for which it was collected, with your consent and/or for related purposes that Business SA considers are within your reasonable expectations. Other than for the purpose of storage (as outlined in paragraph 2.2 of the Policy) Business SA does not otherwise disclose your information to third party organisations for any purpose, including marketing or promotional purposes without your consent.
Business SA will seek your consent prior to using or disclosing your personal information for any other purpose (unless the use or disclosure is required or authorised by law).
3. Access to Personal Information
Please contact the Business SA Privacy Officer if you wish to obtain access to any personal information. Business SA will require that you provide sufficient identification before allowing you to access any personal information. If Business SA is required or authorised by law to do so, it may refuse to provide you with access to this information.
Business SA may charge a reasonable fee for you to access your personal information. If a fee is payable, you will be advised of the amount of that fee once your request for access has been assessed, and payment prior to providing access to your personal information may be required. Business SA will not charge a fee for you to lodge a request for access or for that request to be assessed.
Business SA may provide you with access to your personal information in any of a number of ways, including by providing a hard copy of the information, or by allowing you to inspect relevant records. If you satisfy Business SA that any personal information held about you is incomplete or inaccurate Business SA will amend its records accordingly. You should always let Business SA know if your personal information changes.
Generally, Business SA does not transfer personal information outside of Australia. Business SA may do so, however, if you have given your permission for this to occur or if Business SA is otherwise legally entitled or required to do so.
