Personal Information

The privacy of information is important to us at JOY. The purpose for which personal information is collected includes; membership services, donations / bequests, competitions, give-aways, staff / volunteer applications and records, sponsorship activities, merchandise and sales, events and promotions, accounts and payments, and other related station and organisational activities.

In line with modern business practice, JOY will use personal information to tell members and supporters about organisational issues, program content, program changes, promotions, competitions, give-aways, membership services, volunteer services and other relevant matters. Consent to use service-providers to assist us with this and other services (eg. mailing house, postal services, personal information and payment collection services, web-hosting service or an email service) is assumed, unless you tells us otherwise.

For the purpose of fraud investigation or other unlawful activities, there may also be the need to share information with recognised authorities, regulatory bodies, government and other agencies.

In providing you with a service, we may disclose personal information to other organisations or agencies (eg. mailing house) that are bound to handle personal information in the same way we do. Business terms entered into with such organisations or agencies prohibit them from using the personal information for anything other than related JOY business. If you do not wish us to disclose your information in this manner, please email your request to members@joy.org.au.

Members may gain access to their own personal information, this is subject to some restrictions allowed by law, we will give a reason if we deny access. Requests from members to access to their personal information should be submitted in writing to: The Secretary, JOY Melbourne Inc, Level 9, 225 Bourke St, Melbourne, VIC, 3000.
