If you do not provide us with the requested information, we may be unable to deliver you the Services in full.
To the extent that you disclose to us any personal information of another individual, we assume that you have obtained such individual’s consent for the disclosure of such personal information as well as the processing of the same in accordance with the terms of this Policy.

Information from third-party sources
We obtain information about you from your company or organisation, including when they may create or supplement your profile for you in the member network. You can review and amend this profile at any time.
We also receive information about you from publicly and commercially available sources and other third parties as permitted by law. We may combine this information with other information we receive from or about you, where necessary to provide the Services you requested.
Use of personal information
We use the personal information that we collect as necessary and appropriate for the following purposes:
- To provide our products and services. We use your personal information to provide you with the products, services, and features that you or your company or organisation have requested; to respond to inquiries we receive from you or your company or organisation; to verify your identity; in connection with a transaction that you or your company or organisation has initiated; to deliver notifications and other operational communications; and for troubleshooting.

For example, we may periodically contact you with offers and information about our products, services, features, and events; to send you newsletters or other information about topics that we believe may be of interest; to conduct online surveys; and to otherwise promote our products, services, features, and events. We also may deliver targeted advertisements to you, both on and off the Services.

Sharing of personal information
We disclose your personal information in the following circumstances to the following parties:
- Partners. Our services are provided by partners of Work Club depending on where you are located and the services you use. Work Club shares personal information with those partners for the purposes mentioned above. These partners use your information in accordance with this policy.
- Memberships. Our Services include online and offline member communities, forums and networks that allow you to share and connect with others. We make this possible for Work Club members by creating a profile for new members that contains your name and the name of your company or other organisation. This profile is created automatically and is accessible to other members of the forum or network, some of which include all Work Club members. You can supplement your profile by adding additional information about yourself and your company or organisation and by posting content and comments and you may be able to share your profile with a broader audience.
- Third party suppliers. We rely on third-party service providers to perform a variety of services on our behalf. For example, we may rely on service providers to fulfil our product and service requests and answer your questions, send e-mails on our behalf, process payment card or other transactions, and analyse data to improve our products and services. To do so, we may need to share your personal information with them for the purposes described under “Use of Personal Information”.
- Other parties when required by law and as necessary to provide and protect our services. In some instances, Work Club and our service providers disclose your personal information to law firms, auditors, consultants, the police, courts, tribunals and other law enforcement agencies:

- to comply with the law or respond to legal process or a request for cooperation by a government entity or law enforcement (which may include lawful access requests by Australian and other courts, law enforcement and governmental authorities);
- to detect, suppress, and prevent fraud or verify and enforce compliance with the policies governing our Services; or
- there permitted by law, to protect our rights, property, and safety or that of any of our respective affiliates, business partners, customers or employees and where otherwise required by law.
- Corporate Transaction. We will disclose your personal information to an acquirer in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of a business or assets to that third party, such as in connection with a merger or in the event of a bankruptcy reorganisation or liquidation.
- Third-party partners, with your consent. We may request your consent to share personal information about you with third parties so that they may provide you with special offers, promotional materials, and other materials that may be of interest to you.
- Organisation or company request. In addition to the disclosures described in this Policy, we may share information about you with third parties when your company or organisation requests such sharing. For example, we periodically may partner with third parties to make products or services available to individual members or participating companies and organisations. If you or your company or organisation requests to participate, we may share your information with the relevant third party in connection with the requested product or service.
- Anonymous and non-personal information. We also share with third parties information in a manner that does not identify particular individuals, for example, information that has been aggregated with other records.
Our Services contain links to other sites that we do not own or operate. We provide links to these third-party sites as a convenience to our members. They are not intended as an endorsement of or referral to the linked services. The linked services are subject to their separate and independent privacy statements, notices, and terms, which we recommend you read carefully. The collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information will be subject to the privacy policies of the third party and not this Policy.
Third parties that provide content or functionality on our services
We also partner with the following categories of third parties to collect, analyse, and use some of the personal information described in this Policy:
- Third-parties that provide features and functionality on the Services by means of plug-ins. Even if you do not click on or interact with social networking services or other plug-ins, they may collect information about you, such as your IP address and the pages that you view.
- Advertising providers help us and our advertisers provide advertisements on our Services or elsewhere, including advertisements that are targeted based on your online behaviour, and analytics companies help us measure and evaluate the usage of our services.

Some of these companies participate in industry-developed programs designed to provide consumers choices about whether to receive targeted advertising. Please visit the websites operated by the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance.
We have in place various procedures to safeguard your information. Although we take such steps to protect your information, no security program is foolproof and thus we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal or other information.
