Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards (AWLOTYA) is committed to protecting the privacy of any personal information it holds about individuals in accordance with the applicable laws. AWLOTYA has implemented measures to comply with its obligations under the relevant Australian and New Zealand privacy laws.
AWLOTYA collects your personal information to allow it to perform its business functions. For example, AWLOTYA may collect your personal information to enable you to participate in a AWLOTYA promotion or to allow AWLOTYA to market its current and future products and services to you.
The types of personal information AWLOTYA collects will depend on the nature of your dealings with AWLOTY and may or may not include:
If necessary, AWLOTYA may also ask you to provide additional personal information from time to time.
Importantly, AWLOTYA does not collect any personal information it does not need to perform a business function, and generally it will not collect any information without your prior consent.
If you can’t, or won’t, provide AWLOTYA with the personal information it reasonably requires, AWLOTYA may be unable to provide you with the information, goods or services you have requested.

In some circumstances however, AWLOTYA may also collect your personal information from third parties, but where it does so, it will ensure that it acts in accordance with relevant privacy laws.

AWLOTYA uses your personal information for purposes including (but not limited to):
AWLOTY may also use your personal information for other purposes not listed above which will be made obvious to you at the time AWLOTYA collects that information, or for such purposes as may be required or permitted by law.
If AWLOTYA uses your personal information for direct marketing purposes, all correspondence sent to you by AWLOTYA will give you the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving any further direct marketing correspondence.
In providing you the information, goods or services you request, AWLOTYA may be required to disclose your personal information to:
Other than those third parties referred to above, AWLOTYA will not disclose your personal information to any other third party unless it has reasonable grounds to believe:
If AWLOTYA provides your personal information to a third party, AWLOTYA generally requires the third party to protect your personal information in the same way AWLOTYA does.
AWLOTYA takes reasonable steps to ensure personal information it holds about you is protected from risks such as loss, unauthorised access, use, destruction, modification or disclosure. AWLOTYA only permits its authorised personnel or consultants to access your personal information for legitimate business purposes.
No data transmission over the internet is totally secure. As a result, any personal information you send to AWLOTYA over the Internet (including via email) is sent at your own risk.
If AWLOTYA determines it no longer requires your personal information, AWLOTYA will take reasonable steps to de-identify or securely destroy that information as soon as practicable.
The accuracy of your personal information is important. AWLOTYA takes reasonable steps to ensure personal information it holds about you is accurate, complete, up-to-date, relevant and not misleading. If you believe that any personal information AWLOTYA holds about you is incorrect, please contact AWLOTYA’s Privacy Officer by email to email@example.com with details of the relevant updated information.
You have a general right to access the personal information AWLOTYA holds about you. You may contact AWLOTYA’s Privacy Officer to request details of your personal information by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. AWLOTYA can deny your request in some circumstances and if it does so, will provide you with written reasons for that denial. While there is no fee for requesting access to the personal information AWLOTYA holds about you, AWLOTYA reserves the right to charge a reasonable fee for the preparation and provision of that information to you. You also have the right to request the correction of personal information which AWLOTYA holds about you. You may do so at any time by contacting AWLOTYA’s Privacy Officer by email to email@example.com. AWLOTYA does however reserve the right to refuse to correct your information in some circumstances. If AWLOTYA refuses to correct any personal information about you, and subsequent agreement cannot be reached between the parties on this issue, you may request that a note or statement regarding the correction requested be attached to your personal information.
