Privacy Policy & Creative Commons License – Day of AI Australia (TDM Charitable Foundation)


The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) contains 13 Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) that govern the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

APP 1 requires that an APP entity have a privacy policy that includes certain information such as the type of information that they collect, use and disclose and the purposes for which they do so.

There is an exemption under the Privacy Act for small businesses with an annual turnover (in the current financial year) of $3,000,000 or less – such businesses are not required to comply with the Privacy Act. There are qualifications on this exemption. However, even if you fall under the ‘small business’ threshold, it is a matter of good practice to maintain a privacy policy.

This privacy policy has not been tailored to your particular needs or the purpose of your website(s), and may not accurately describe or reflect your business.  It is important that it does so.

You should carefully read these terms and seek further advice regarding any discrepancies between these terms and how you operate your business and collect, use and disclose personal information.

In particular, sections 3 and 6 need to be specifically tailored to the personal information you may collect from users of your website and how you use that information.

Also, if you are collecting personal information primarily for marketing purposes, there may be various other regulatory matters to consider (such as spam legislation) so you should seek specific advice in this regard.

2 Collection of personal information

Personal information is information or an opinion about an individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable, whether true or not and whether recorded in material form or not.

We may collect personal information from you when you:

  • register for or participate in any event, activity or competition organised or run by us and TDM Growth Partners;
  • visit our website or the Day of AI Australia website; or
  • contact us by any method, such as telephone, email, post, facsimile or in person,

or otherwise as notified to you from time to time, including in any collection notice.

The personal information you provide to us may vary depending on the nature of your interaction with us, but may for example include your name, date of birth, contact details, some employment details if required for the particular purpose for which the information is being collected (for example, when registering for the Day of AI Australia), and any communications you send to us. For particular events and competitions, such as the Day of AI Australia, we may also collect video or facial images for the purposes of that event or competition.

Where possible, we will allow you to interact with us anonymously or using a pseudonym. For example, if you contact us with a general enquiry, we will not ask for your name unless we need it to adequately handle your enquiry. However, for most of our functions and activities we usually need your name and contact information.

If we refuse to provide you with access to the information, we will provide you with reasons for the refusal and inform you of any exceptions relied upon under the APPs (unless it would be unreasonable to do so).

We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete, and up-to-date whenever we collect or use it.  If the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete, irrelevant or out-of-date, please contact us and we will take reasonable steps to either correct this information, or if necessary, discuss alternative action with you.
