Information you provide.  We collect information from you when you place an order on our Site, sign up to a wait-list on our Site, indicate that you wish to receive news, offers or other marketing material from us or make an inquiry or complaint. Sometimes we collect personal information about you from other sources, for example people making a purchase on your behalf or third parties we are working with.

Also, from time to time we may collect personal information about individuals who are not customers. This is usually where we collect the name and business contact details of a person who is the contact in a government agency or company we are dealing with.

When engaging with us, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter certain kinds of personal information such as your name, mailing address and other contact details (like your phone number), your email address, your date of birth, your gender or credit card information. You may, however, visit our Site for some purposes anonymously. For more information on Cookies and Tracking, please see below.

Use of Personal Information by us for marketing

As noted above, one the of reasons we collect your personal information is so that, if you consent, we can keep you updated through a variety of channels about upcoming events, company news, promotions and related product or service information.

The marketing communications that we send to you will contain unsubscribe instructions but you can contact us anytime if you do not want us to use your personal information for marketing purposes or to disclose your details to other organisations such as our related companies or third parties for marketing purposes.

Sometimes, we extract information from our collected records to produce aggregated data. This aggregated data does not identify individuals. We use the aggregated data for research and analysis purposes and may share the data with third parties.

How do we hold and protect your information?

We may hold your personal information in electronic or hard copy format or a combination of both. This personal information may be combined with other information held about you, including information that we receive from third parties. We have taken a number of physical, electronic and procedural steps to protect your personal information from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

IEC protects the personal information we collect from the Site in a secure database (not directly reachable by the internet) which is stored by its third party data storage provider. IEC encrypts data sent from your computer to its systems during internet transactions and it encrypts data stored in its databases. It also employs firewalls, intrusion detection systems and virus scanning tools to protect against unauthorized persons and viruses from entering its systems.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Please note that email communications are not secure, so please limit the personal information you send us by email.

The data that we collect from you may be stored in Australia or transferred to, accessed from and/or stored at, a destination outside Australia including destinations such as the United States of America, the United Kingdom and/or the Phillipines. It may also be processed by staff operating inside or outside Australia, by persons who work for us or for one of our suppliers or related companies. Such staff and suppliers may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order and the processing of your payment. In addition, where you have consented to receiving marketing material from us, we may transfer your data to one or more third parties operating outside Australia including to the United States of America and the United Kingdom for the purpose of enabling us to communicate with you.  By submitting your personal data to us and clicking where indicated below, you agree to such transfers, storing and processing.  We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

What happens if we do not collect your personal information?

Where it is lawful and practicable to do so, we will give you the option of not providing personal information, or of using a pseudonym, when you deal with us. You may be able to make a cash transaction at a retail agency without providing personal information.

However, if we do not collect personal information about you at the point of sale or when you interact with us, this could impact the level of service we can provide to you, for example, we will not be able to contact you in the case of an event cancellation or venue change or we may not be able to properly respond to your inquiry or investigate your complaint or fully process your transaction.

Access to your information and your choices

We endeavour to keep your personal information accurate. Under the Australian Privacy Principles, you have a right to request access to the personal information that IEC holds about you and seek its correction. You may Contact Us to amend any of your personal information that is inaccurate or request that your personal information be deleted. We will use reasonable efforts promptly to amend or delete your records as requested. If applicable, any legal requirement on us to maintain certain records of your personal information shall prevail over any of your requests. We will not charge you for making such a request but will let you know if there is a cost for supplying you with access to or correcting the personal information. We aim to respond to requests for access or correction within 30 days. There are certain situations under the Australian Privacy Principles where we may refuse to provide you with access to or correct your personal information but we will always let you know in writing if this is the case.

You can choose not to receive emails from us by “unsubscribing” using the instructions in any email you receive from us.  This will not stop us from sending emails about your account or your transactions with us.
