UTSSA takes privacy data very seriously. UTSSA has adopted this Privacy Policy as we recognise student, and stakeholder rights to keep personal information private. This Privacy Policy covers the treatment of personally identifiable information that we collect or hold. UTSSA is subject to the Privacy and Personal Information Act 1998

Collection Information

UTSSA may collect information about you, such as your name, address, contact details, student number, course preferences, collective affiliations, date of birth and other relevant details. We may also collect this and other types of personal information during the course of dealing with you, for example when you join a collective, obtain goods or services and when you participate in contests and promotions or return feedback forms.

Where practicable, the purposes for which we collect personal information will be made clear at the time of sign up. 

“Personal Information” is information we hold which is identifiable as being about you.

Use of Information

UTSSA acknowledges that any personal information we collect about you will only be used for the purpose indicated in this Policy, where we have your consent to do so or as otherwise required or authorised by law.

We will not use your personal information for any other purpose without first seeking your consent, unless authorised or required by law. Generally, we will only use and disclose your personal information as follows:

(a) to establish and maintain our database, including providing you with newsletters, magazines and other information necessary to inform you of Student Association activities;
(b) where appropriate, to facilitate effective communication channels;
(c) to provide the products, services or information you have requested from UTSSA;
(d) to answer your inquiries;
(e) to register you for events, promotions or competitions;
(f) to assist us to make UTSSA facilities, services and products more valuable to our members and stakeholders;
(g) to third parties where we have established community partnerships and we believe that those organisations will provide valuable products and services to you. Such third parties will be required to keep your information confidential and to use it only to communicate the products and services to you. You may decline any third party communications by advising UTSSA of your wishes by the means outlined below.
