Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

This Privacy Policy covers the World Sport Action and it’s associates, related entities and subsidiaries (together, “we,” “us,” “our,” and the “WSA”). For the avoidance of doubt, a reference in this Privacy Policy to WSA (including the WSA doing or not doing an act) is a reference to, and is intended to also cover, Netball Live Scores and it’s other entities. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully as it describes how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise handle your Personal Information.

WSA recognises the importance of your privacy and your right to control your Personal Information and is committed to complying with applicable privacy laws (including the Privacy Act and GDPR).
WSA is always seeking to better understand how Players, Administrators, Clubs, States and, most importantly, fans interact, communicate and otherwise share Personal Information in order to continue to develop it’s technology services.

  1. Anonymity and pseudonymity

We offer you the opportunity, wherever it is lawful and practicable, of not identifying yourself, or of using a pseudonym, when entering transactions, or otherwise dealing with, the WSA in relation to a particular matter by contacting the WSA Privacy Officer (see clause 11).

  1. What kinds of personal information do we collect?

3.1 The types of Personal Information the WSA may collect depends on the purposes for which it is collected but may include (without limitation):

(a) your name, gender, date of birth, occupation, residential address, email address, telephone number and other contact details;

(b) your favourite Club and other information dealings with the WSA, Clubs, States or selected ticketing companies such as memberships, subscriptions and attendance history at Matches

(a) you have consented to the collection of such specific Sensitive Information;

(b) the collection is required or authorised by law; or

(c) the collection is otherwise permitted under applicable privacy laws (including the Privacy Act and GDPR).

In addition to Personal Information, we use cookies, web beacons and other technologies on our website and applications to collect information about your usage of our services (for instance, third party websites you visit to better understand your preferences and what types of products and services you may be interested in).

  1. How do we collect your personal information?

4.1 Where it is reasonable and practicable to do so, WSA will collect your Personal Information from you. If you are a Minor, WSA may collect Personal Information about you from your parent or legal guardian.

4.2 In addition to collecting Personal Information directly from you, WSA may also collect Personal Information from:

(a) the Clubs, States and selected third parties; and

(b) a third party (such as a corporate partner of WSA or Clubs, or information that is on public record or which is otherwise unsolicited).

  1. Why do we collect, use, hold and disclose your personal information?

5.1 WSA generally only collects, uses, discloses or holds Personal Information that is reasonably necessary for WSA to perform one or more functions or activities in administering the game they support (the primary purpose), including:

(a) organisation, conduct and promotion of Competitions and Matches (including for the purpose of providing information and making ticket offers to you);

(b) direct communication with you by sporting Administrators;

(c) disclosure to WSA and Club Partners, unless you have indicated that you do not want to receive any communication from WSA or Club Partners;

(d) compliance with the WSA or sporting Rules, including the administration and development of that sport (if you are a Participant);

(e) serving content in accordance with your preferences and previous consumption; and

(f) serving advertising that is suited to your age.

5.2 Wherever practicable, WSA will inform you more specifically of the primary purpose of a collection as part of its collection statement, which will be made available to you at the time of the collection.

5.3 When we collect your Personal Information, your Personal Information will only be used or disclosed for the primary purpose for which it was collected, a related secondary purpose, in accordance with any express consent you grant WSA or as otherwise lawfully required (e.g. where your Personal Information is requested by a law enforcement agency).

Direct Marketing

5.4 WSA may use or disclose your Personal Information to Sporting Administrators for the secondary purpose of direct marketing communication, if:

(b) you would reasonably expect your Personal Information would be used or disclosed for direct marketing;

(c) WSA has provided a simple means by which you can request not to receive direct marketing; and

(d) you have not made a request not to receive direct marketing.

5.5 Where you would not reasonably expect your Personal Information to be used for direct marketing, or the information has been collected from a third party (for instance, from the Clubs), WSA may use the information for the secondary purpose of direct marketing communication only where:

(a) you have expressly consented to the use or disclosure for direct marketing, or it is impracticable for the WSA to seek your consent before that use;

(b) you have not made a request to the WSA not to receive direct marketing communication;

(c) in each direct marketing communication, WSA always prominently displays a simple notice or actionable option that you may express a wish not to receive any further direct marketing communication; and

(d) each written direct marketing communication by WSA with you sets out the WSA’s contact details including email address.

  1. Who do we disclose your personal information to?

6.1 Subject to compliance with applicable privacy laws (including the Privacy Act and GDPR) and this Privacy Policy, WSA may also:

(a) disclose your Personal Information to its affiliates (including without limitation the States, a Competition Administrator and a Club) to enable them to administer the sporting game in their area and provide related activities and services; and

(b) unless you inform the WSA otherwise, disclose your Personal Information to Clubs, States, Sporting Partners and selected other partners to enable such recipients to provide you with information, materials and promotional opportunities. This sharing of Personal Information will assist the WSA, Clubs, States, Sporting Partners and selected other partners to more effectively administer promotional and information sharing activities.

6.2 WSA may disclose your Personal Information to its service providers such as ticketing agents, mail houses or other similar third party organisations for the purpose of implementing the primary purposes, including fulfilling ticket requests and communicating related offers. For example, the WSA uses third party credit card payment gateway services on its website and applications. If you pay for tickets or services through the WSA’s website and applications, WSA will be required to provide certain financial details to the third-party service provider to effect the transaction. WSA requires these third party organisations to keep your contact details and Personal Information confidential and only use them for the designated purpose.

  1. Data quality and security

7.1 WSA will take reasonable steps to:

(a) make sure that the Personal Information it collects, uses or discloses is accurate, complete and up-to-date; and

(b) protect the Personal Information it holds about you or that is within its direct control from misuse, interference and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

7.2 WSA will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify Personal Information if it is no longer needed for any purpose for which the information may be used or disclosed (at your request or otherwise) or if you withdraw your consent, unless WSA is required by or under law, or a Court order, to retain such information.

8.2 Separate from the preference centre and upon your request, WSA will take reasonable steps to let you know, in general terms, what sort of Personal Information it holds, for what purposes, and how it collects, holds, uses and discloses that information.

8.4 Before supplying any Personal Information to you or updating your Personal Information at your request, WSA must be reasonably satisfied as to your identity (for example, by asking to see your passport or driver’s licence). WSA is not under any obligation to provide Personal Information to you where WSA is not required to do so under applicable privacy laws (including the Privacy Act and GDPR).

8.5 If WSA refuses to provide you with access to Personal information it holds on you in the manner requested by you, WSA will either:

(a) take such steps (if any) as are reasonable in the circumstances to give access to the information in a way that meets the needs of WSA and you; or

(b) provide you with a written notice that sets out:

(i) the reasons for the refusal except to the extent that, having regard to the grounds for the refusal, it would be unreasonable to do so; and

(ii) the mechanisms available to complain about the refusal.
