  • We seek to align with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act). Personal information is information (or an opinion) that identifies you or from which you are reasonably identifiable, whether true or not, and regardless of whether recorded in a material form or not.

What personal information we collect

  • Team Connect collects personal information from you in a variety of ways, including when you:
  • participate in programs and events run by us;
  • fill out our registration forms, feedback surveys after participating in our programs and events, and volunteer application forms;
  • visit and use our Website and interact with us on social media channels; or
  • contact us by any method, such as telephone, email, post or interact with us in person.
  • Under some circumstances, we may also collect your personal information from trusted sources such as members of your family, guardians or next of kin, or in the case of participants, from teachers and other school staff.
  • There may be occasions when we collect information about you from a third party, such as through your school or cricket organisations. In such instances, we will determine whether we would have been entitled to collect such information from you and to the extent we would not have been entitled to do so, we will destroy or de-identify such information as soon as reasonably practicable.

  • financial details to process donations; and
  • details comprised in your CricketID.

We may take photographs of you at our events for promotional purposes. We will seek your consent to use these photographs.

We may also collect some information from you that is not personal information because it does not identify you or anyone else. For example, we may collect anonymous answers to surveys or aggregated information about how users use our Website.
