We will not use or disclose your personal information to any person, body or agency otherwise than for the purpose of providing and offering promotional services such as future The Saving Nemo Conservation Fund projects or events, for a purpose that you would reasonably expect, a purpose authorised by law, or some other purpose disclosed to or authorised by you. The Saving Nemo Conservation Fund may also use or disclose your personal information to avoid, lessen or prevent a serious emergency or crime, in which case we will make a written note of such use or disclosure.

Data Quality, Access and Correction

Upon request, an individual’s information held by The Saving Nemo Conservation Fund will be provided, except in the special circumstances referred to in the amended Privacy Act. These exceptions are for where disclosure would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of another individual, the information would reveal a commercially sensitive decision-making process, or we are prevented by law from making disclosure. If the personal information of an individual held by us is not accurate, complete and up-to-date, we will take reasonable steps to correct it. We will provide reasons for any refusal to correct personal information, and, if you ask us to associate with the information a statement claiming that the information is not accurate, complete or up-to-date, we will take reasonable steps to do so.


The Saving Nemo Conservation Fund will not adopt as its own identifier of you or use or disclose an identifier of you, which has been assigned by a government agency, unless allowed by the National Privacy Principles, set out in the amended Privacy Act. An identifier is a number assigned to an individual to identify uniquely the individual, but does not include an individual’s name or ABN.


The Saving Nemo Conservation Fund will provide services and promotional events to you and therefore we would require the disclosure of your identity. For this reason, we see that it is unlikely to be lawful and practicable for you to enter transactions with us without identifying yourself.
