Personal information is information or opinion from which an individual’s identity may be ascertained. The nature of personal information collected by Community Bushfire Connection generally comprises an individual’s name and contact details (including address, phone, fax and e-mail).
Community Bushfire Connection does not collect personal information unless it is necessary for Community Bushfire Connection to perform one or more of its functions and activities.
Community Bushfire Connection will destroy personal information when it is no longer required for such functions and activities.
Community Bushfire Connection will generally collect personal information from you directly.

2. Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

Community Bushfire Connection will use and disclose your personal information for the purpose for which the personal information was initially collected.
Community Bushfire Connection may also use that personal information for a purpose related to the initial purpose of collection if that other purpose would be within your reasonable expectations. Related purposes might include internal auditing and administration, adding your name to a contact list, guest list or invitation list or helping us to identify production and broadcast activities which may be of benefit or interest to you.
Community Bushfire Connection will not use or disclose your personal information for any other purposes without first obtaining your express or implied consent. Community Bushfire Connection may however be required to disclose your personal information without your consent if the disclosure is:

However, on some occasions the information may need to be transferred overseas in order to perform one of the Community Bushfire Connection`s functions or activities. In these circumstances, Community Bushfire Connection will either obtain your express or implied consent or will use its best endeavors to ensure that your personal information will receive protection similar to that which it would have if the information were in Australia.
