Copyright / Privacy
Your personal information privacy is important to us. As a member of the Federation, we respect your right to be aware of who has information about you, what they are doing with it and why, and who else they are sharing it with. The Federation has adopted a privacy compliance culture that cements this relationship with you. Its foundation is the new private sector privacy laws that have been introduced as an amendment to the Privacy Act 1988.
We through our Branches and affiliated clubs collect information about you to provide you with the services provided by the Federation. Types of information we collect and handle includes identity and contact details of you and your horses and in particular the performance of your horses, and service or insurance preferences you may have. Generally, we collect this from you or from the organisers of events at which you compete.
USE & DISCLOSURE
Our use and disclosure of information about you is dictated by any service you take up with the Federation for example, insurance and on occasions to event organisers regarding horse qualifications. We will not use or disclose this information for a purpose unrelated to this or outside your reasonable expectations unless we have your agreement or need to meet a legal obligation or authority. To provide our services in the most cost effective and efficient way, we may need to utilise the services of others. Should this require us to share information, we will require those persons to respect your right of privacy. For example, we may use a mailing house to send you information.
