We may use and disclose your personal information for other purposes explained at the time of collection (such as in a specific privacy collection statement or notice) or otherwise as set out in this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to transfer the information we maintain in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.

After such a sale or transfer, you may contact the recipient with any inquiries concerning the recipient’s privacy practices.

Data retention

We retain personal data for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which the data was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose. When we no longer need the personal information we collect, we either anonymize the information upon your request or securely destroy the information, unless we are legally required to retain it.

Your Marketing Choices

You can opt-out of our use and disclosure of your personal information for marketing purposes and customer satisfaction surveys, and/or withdraw your prior consent for the same, by the methods provided below. Upon requesting an opt-out, your consent will be withdrawn; however, please note that it often takes some time to process these requests. Therefore, it is possible that you may receive communications scheduled prior to our receipt of your withdrawal of consent.

You may reply to a promotional or marketing e-mail that you have received from us with the word “Unsubscribe” in the subject line or you can email us directly at [email protected]. You may also unsubscribe from receiving marketing or other commercial emails by following the instructions included in the email. (If you use more than one e-mail address, then send your opt-out e-mail from each of your e-mail addresses.) We may also provide additional methods for you to opt-out of having your personal information used or disclosed for promotional and marketing purposes.

Please note, even if you opt-out of receiving marketing or commercial communications, we retain the right to send you non-marketing communications such as correspondence about your existing business relationship with us, information about reservations or rentals, payment receipts, or notifying you of updates to our Privacy Policy or Terms & Conditions.

Your privacy choices:

You may have certain rights and choices regarding our processing of your personal information. Depending on your jurisdiction, applicable law may entitle you to additional consumer rights, including the right to:

  • Know the categories and/or specific pieces of personal information collected about you, including whether your personal information is sold or disclosed, and with whom your personal information was shared
  • Access a copy of the personal information we retain about you
  • Update any inaccuracies in the personal information we hold about you
  • Request deletion of your personal information
  • Request that we transfer your information to another entity in the format in which we maintain it in the ordinary course of business
  • Object to the processing of your personal information
  • Restrict how we use your personal information whilst a complaint is being investigated

We reserve the right to verify your identity in connection with any requests regarding personal information to help ensure that we provide the information we maintain to the individuals to whom it pertains, and allow only those individuals or their authorised representatives to exercise rights with respect to that information. If you are an authorised agent making a request on behalf of a consumer, we may require and request additional information to verify that you are authorised to make that request.

Under some circumstances, we will use your email address on file to verify your identity. We may also request additional information. For example, if we suspect an access request is fraudulent, we will request additional information in order to verify your identity. We reserve the right to deny your request if we cannot verify your identity. Where we deny your request in whole or in part, we will endeavour to inform you of the denial, provide an explanation of our actions, and the reasons for the denial.

We will not restrict or deny you access to our Services because of choices and requests you make in connection with your personal information. Please note, certain choices may affect our ability to deliver the Services.

Where you have consented to our processing of your personal information, you have the right to withdraw, at any time, any consent that you have previously given to us for use of your personal information. In certain circumstances even if you withdraw your consent we may still be able to process your personal information if required or permitted by law or for the purpose of exercising or defending our legal rights or meeting our legal and regulatory obligations. To make a request to exercise any of these rights (where applicable) in relation to your personal information, please contact us using the contact details [email protected]

Your exercise of the rights described above is subject to certain exemptions to safeguard the public interest (e.g. the prevention or detection of crime) and our interests (e.g. the maintenance of legal privilege). If you exercise any of these rights we will check your entitlement and respond in most cases within a month.

You may make a complaint about privacy to the Privacy Officer at the contact details set out below. We may ask you to provide further information about your complaint and the outcome you are seeking.

If you are not satisfied with our response to your complaint, or you consider that Tams Tribe may have breached the Australian Privacy Principles or the Privacy Act, a complaint may be made to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner. The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner can be contacted by telephone on 1300 363 992 or by using the contact details on the website.

With respect to individuals located in the EU/UK, where we are unable to resolve an inquiry or a complaint, you have the right to contact the data protection regulator in the European country in which you are based.

International data transfers

Tams Tribe is a global organisation and works with members, service providers, sponsors and commercial interests across the globe. We may transfer your personal information to countries other than the country in which you initially provided the information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. For example, if you are located outside of Australia, we typically transfer and process all personal information in Australia, the United Kingdom or the United States. The countries to which we transfer personal information may not guarantee the same level of protection for personal information as the one in which you reside.

We may transfer personal information from the United Kingdom or the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to countries that the United Kingdom’s Secretary of State or the European Commission (as applicable) has deemed to adequately safeguard personal information, in which case no additional safeguards are required in order to transfer this information. If we transfer your personal information to other countries, we will either transfer it subject to the recipient’s compliance with standard contractual clauses, Binding Corporate Rules, or with your consent to the transfer, unless we are permitted by law to transfer personal information without such formalities.

How we protect information

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information we maintain against accidental, unlawful or unauthorised destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

Despite such efforts, however, please note that no organisation can fully eliminate risks or guarantee the security of personal information. Unauthorised entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of information about you at any time, and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of personal information or other data arising in connection with the theft of the information or other malicious actions.

Links to third-party websites

Our Services may contain links or references to third party websites. These websites are outside of our control, and the privacy policies of these sites may differ from our own. Please be aware that we have no control over these third-party websites and our Privacy Policy does not apply to such websites. We encourage you to check the terms of use and privacy policies of such websites before disclosing any personal information via such websites.
