The term “personal data” means information about an identifiable individual which includes name, address, email, telephone number and other information relating specifically to an individual. Our Notice also describes the measures we take to protect the security of the personal data. We also tell you how you can reach us to:

i. access, correct, or delete the personal data that you have provided;

PERSONAL DATA:

How You Provide It And How We Collect And Use It

Personal data is any information that can be used to identify a specific individual, such as your name, email address, home address, phone number and credit card information. You may choose to provide personal data when you visit us or our affiliates or licensees at one of our events or through our Website. If you choose not to provide us with your personal data you may not be able to access some of the services offered on our Website, such as newsletters or bulletins or take part in our promotions. Here are some of the ways in which you may provide us with your personal data and the types of personal data you may submit. We also explain how we (or any of our associated companies) may use the personal data in different ways according to the purpose for which it was provided.  For example, if you provide personal data to register for a newsletter, to enter a competition or promotion or to purchase goods or services, we will use it to register you for or provide you with those goods or services. We may also use your personal data to provide you with information about our events coming up, ticket sales, features, services and other offerings that may be of interest to you.  We also may send information or offers to selected groups of Website users on behalf of other businesses.  When we do this, we do not give those businesses your name or address.  Children must have the permission of their parent or guardian to submit their data to us and we do encourage you to explain our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy in this Notice to your children.

Contacting Us Through Our Website

If you communicate with us through any link on our Website, we may ask you for your personal data so we can respond to your questions and comments. You may also choose to provide additional information as well.

Competitions, Contests, Sweepstakes and Other Promotions (“Promotions”)

We may occasionally conduct Promotions. If you choose to enter and you are not already a registered member of http://www.gourmetescape.com.au, we may ask you for your personal data such as your name, email address, postal address and telephone number for the purpose of conducting these Promotions.

Goods or Services for Purchase

From time to time we may offer products or services for purchase through our Website (in particular tickets for our events). When you choose to purchase merchandise or subscribe for such services, we may ask you to provide your name, email address, postal address and telephone number or other personal data. This personal data is collected for the purpose of providing you with the services you choose to purchase and/or subscribe for. We may also ask you to provide your credit card details for this purchase, or we may direct you to a third party payment processing service to make payment. If we direct you to a third party payment processing service, please be aware that Brand Events Australia is not liable or responsible for such service and that your use of that service might be subject to terms and conditions imposed by the service provider and other privacy policies.

Other Data We May Collect Automatically 

When you visit http://www.gourmetescape.com.au, we may automatically collect certain personal data that we then aggregate so that it is not linked to a single, identifiable individual. This information provides us with statistics such as how many users visited our site and which pages were accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor this Website to our visitors. We collect this information either through “log files”, “cookie” technology or with “web beacons”, as explained below.


Log Files 

Log files are web server files (such as the domain name or IP address, URL, the http response code, the Website from where you visit us or the date and duration of your visit) that are automatically created when an Internet user visits a site. Once you stop using our Website, we process and use this information only to enable further connections, for billing purposes, to detect disruptions to telecommunication equipment and to detect abuse of our telecommunication services. We delete this information routinely.

This information is used to create general aggregated profiles of our Website user base and is not used to create personalised user profiles. In case of disruption or misuse, we reserve the right to file a report with law enforcement agencies. We do not use this information for any other purpose(s) and do not share this information with any third parties, except as set out in the section titled “How We Share Personal Data” below.

Cookies 

Like many companies, we use “cookies” or similar objects on our Website. Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain Websites. We use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited our Website before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify site features in which you may have the greatest interest. Cookies may enhance your online experience, for example, by remembering your passwords and viewing preferences, while you are visiting a particular site.

The majority of browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. The toolbar on most browsers will have a feature to tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, and how to disable any existing cookies. Please note, however, if you do disable, reject or stop cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our Website features and services we would like to offer you.

HOW WE SHARE PERSONAL DATA

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal data about our Website visitors, except as described here. We may share your personal data with affiliates and/or licensees of IMG Culinary for specific purposes disclosed to you when you registered for our Website (or otherwise provided data to us, for example for a Promotion). Otherwise we will do so only with your explicit consent.

We may also share your personal data with service providers, employees or contractors that we have retained to perform services or work on our behalf. These parties are provided only with the personal data they need to perform their functions and can only use and disclose such personal data as is necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

In addition, we may disclose your personal data (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

We reserve the right to transfer your personal data in the event we sell or transfer all or a part of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable endeavours to direct the subsequent owner to use the personal data you have provided through this Website in a manner that is consistent with this Notice. If you do not want your personal data to be processed following such a transfer, you should contact the subsequent owner of IMG Culinary.

WHERE YOUR PERSONAL DATA MAY BE TRANSFERRED AND STORED 

Your personal data will be processed in Australia. IMG Culinary has taken reasonable steps so that personal data it collects receives an appropriate level of data protection.
