Privacy policy.

Introduction and Application

References to "Powerd Media," "we," "us," and "our" in this Privacy Policy are references to Powerd Media and our associated entities, agents, staff, subcontractors, or third-party service providers we engage from time to time in the provision of our business and services.

This Privacy Policy discloses our privacy practices, and it applies to personal information collected and held by Powerd Media.

In our collection, storage, use, and dissemination of personal information, we are bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act), including the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) and any relevant APP codes registered under the Privacy Act. “Personal information” generally includes information or an opinion relating to an identified, or reasonably identifiable, individual.


By using this Website, or any other Powerd Media service, application, and/or site that references this Privacy Policy, or by otherwise providing to us directly, or through others, your personal information, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy and consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, the Privacy Act, and other applicable privacy laws.

We may modify this Privacy Policy at any time at our discretion. You can always locate the current version via our website or by contacting us.

Reasons we collect and use personal information

We collect and use your personal information for the purposes of providing our services to you and our broader sector, to meet our legal obligations, for human resources purposes, and for the purpose of marketing our services to you.

We may also use your personal information for purposes closely related to our primary purposes, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. The kind of personal information we may gather and hold depends on the nature of the interaction or activity taking place. This means we may collect personal information you provide to us via conversations that take place in person, over the telephone, or in writing, and via all electronic and digital means, including our website/s, cookies, online surveys and forms, webinars, streamed events, social media accounts, and those of our partners and agents.

Where we collect personal information that is also sensitive information, such your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions or membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, sexual orientation or practices, health information, or disability, to undertake our functions or activities, (including the activities we undertake to understand the demographic composition and needs of our sector), we are committed to deidentifying that information as far as possible.

Direct Marketing

When you provide your personal information to us, you expressly consent to our use or disclosure of your personal information (other than sensitive information) for the purpose of direct marketing (either to market ours or someone else’s products). In situations where you would not reasonably expect us to use or disclose personal information (other than sensitive information) about you for the purpose of direct marketing, but there is no practical way for us to obtain your consent, we may still directly market to you, provided we collected your information from you, and you have not previously asked us to remove you from our mailing list.

In each direct marketing publication we send you, we will prominently let you know that you can be removed from our mailing list, and how to make that request.

If you do not wish to receive direct marketing communications from us, simply click ‘unsubscribe’ on the email that you received or contact us, and we will remove you from our mailing list. Our contact details appear at the end of this Privacy Policy.

Storage, security, and access to information

We generally store your personal information via digital/electronic means (including hard drives, servers, and cloud storage). Our computer and storage systems are generally password protected, and permission to access your personal information in our systems is limited to our employees and those of our agents and third parties (see “us” in the Introduction above). Where any information is kept in hard copy, it is stored under lock and key. We are committed to taking steps that are reasonable in the circumstances to protect your information from loss or unauthorised access, interference, modification, disclosure, or misuse. Despite this, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

We will generally only grant permission for others to access your personal information where we believe doing so is necessary to carry on our business and fulfill our responsibilities or when otherwise required to do so by law or a court/tribunal order.

How you may access your personal information

You may access a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us. We will use our best efforts to take less than 30 days to respond to your request. We may charge you a reasonable fee for providing access to your personal information.

If we do withhold access to your personal information, we may instead choose to give you a summary of that information, and we will provide you with written reasons, and consider whether the provision of access to an independent third party will meet both of our needs.

Accuracy of information

We are committed to taking reasonable steps to ensure your personal information we hold is accurate. If you believe it is not accurate, please contact us
