While we take reasonable steps to protect your personal information once it is in our possession, Christian Media & Arts Australia cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us before it reaches us, and you do so at your own risk. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
Cancellations for Registrations and Accommodation must be received in writing by email to email@example.com. Cancellations received up to 14 days prior to the event will receive a refund, minus a AUD$99 processing fee. No refunds will be issued in the 14 days prior to the start of the event.
Much of the information Christian Media & Arts Australia collects can be “aggregated” — meaning that the information from many users is grouped together in a way that does not reveal the personal information of any particular user. We may use this aggregated information to evaluate which services are successful and which ones are not, and in order to evaluate which new services we should make available on Christian Media & Arts Australia. We may also use the anonymous click stream data to help our advertisers deliver better-targeted advertisements.
In certain circumstances, Christian Media & Arts Australia may collect personal information about you, for example when you create an account, contact us, enter a competition, make a purchase or join a mailing list. The types of personal information we may collect includes your name, contact details, payment details and enquiry or complaint details. We also collect personal information through our records of your transactions and interactions (including by email, phone and online) with Christian Media & Arts Australia or on the Christian Media & Arts Australia website. We collect personal information from you and in some cases from third parties including our related companies, your representatives and public sources.
We collect and use your personal information to provide, administer, improve and personalise the Christian Media & Arts Australia website and our services, to run competitions, process payments and refunds, understand you better, maintain and update our records, complete registrations, verify your identity and protect our lawful interests. We may not be able to do these things without your personal information. For example, we may not be able to deliver your orders or respond to your enquiries.
We may exchange personal information with third party service providers who assist us with payment, marketing, data processing, IT, archival, auditing, accounting, customer contact, legal, business consulting, banking, delivery, data analysis, document management, research, investigation, insurance, website and other services. Some of these third parties may be located in Australia, USA, EU countries and other countries. By registering for any Christian Media & Arts Australia conference or meeting you agree to your basic details being made available to other delegates or participants to maximise conference and meeting networking opportunities.
The use of these technologies allows them to deliver customised advertising content, measure the effectiveness of their advertising, evaluate users use of the Christian Media & Arts Australia website and other websites and provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Those third parties may also transfer the information they collect to others where required to do so by law, or where those others process the information on their behalf. The services we may use from time to time include Google Analytics, Google Adwords, Adroll, Constant Contact and Mailchimp. You can find more details in the privacy policies for those services, including information on how to opt out of certain conduct. We participate in some third party ‘online behavioural advertising’ (OBA), on a non-personally identifiable basis. This allows online advertising displayed to you to be tailored according to your browsing behaviour on various websites, not just our own. You can find you more details about OBA, the best practice guidelines and how to opt out from OBA with participating companies at the industry website www.youronlinechoices.com.au.
We offer a free newsletter to share content information about our site with interested users. There may be cases in which some of your personal information may be used by Christian Media & Arts Australia on an ongoing basis to target e-commerce promotions and telemarketing activities unless you opt out or we are prevented by law. For example, when you register as a user or check out as a guest on Christian Media & Arts Australia’s website, we may use your personal information to send you marketing and/or promotional materials from time to time. Users may elect to stop receiving marketing communications at any time by following the simple instructions at the bottom of the newsletter or communication or by contacting us as set out below.
