Lifestyle at Sydney Olympic Park is an initiative of Sydney Olympic Park Authority (The Authority). Lifestyle at Sydney Olympic Park operates as part of Sydney Olympic Park Authority, and is referred to as 'Lifestyle' for the purpose of this Policy.
The Authority understands that your privacy is very important and that you have the right to control your personal information. The Authority attaches a high priority to the way information is collected, stored, used and disclosed, it also undertakes to act with integrity at all times when dealing with information that you have entrusted to this organisation.

Throughout this policy we refer to users, they are defined as follows:
User - A visitor to this website or a person who contacts Lifestyle via email, phone or in person. This includes Registered Members.
Registered Member - A person who has registered as a member of the Lifestyle program and who will receive specific information regarding the program and its activities.
How we collect your information
We collect information from our users in many ways. Through our website, email, mail, via telephone and in person at our Lifestyle Concierge Service office. These include:
# completion of membership application forms
# through visitation to our website
# when making a booking or enquiry either online, on phone or in person
# entry into competitions
# providing feedback on the benefits of Lifestyle.
Where an eligible Park business negotiates with Lifestyle to pay for its employees to become members of the program, the company will need to provide Lifestyle with sufficient preliminary information on their employees for the purpose of employee pre-registration. This information is generic in nature and is a means of cross-checking an employee whose employer agrees to pay for or contribute to the membership fees for its employees. The membership and profile details for pre-registered employees is activated upon delivery of initial email from Lifestyle to employees upon confirmation by their employer. The employee is required to activate a password in order to log in to the Lifestyle website.
Types of information we collect
We collect a range of information including: personal information; personal interests relating to the Lifestyle program; and anonymous statistical information such as website usage, benefit redemption and usage, e-voucher printing, and interests indicated by the member in their membership profile.
When collecting personal information we may collect details such as home or work place addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, your date of birth, your interests, and other information in the interest of maximising the potential offers for the Lifestyle program.
The minimum information we require to become a Registered Member includes: 'First Name', 'Last name', 'email address' and 'Employment details'. Members will also need to establish their own password during the registration process. All other registration questions are voluntary. The staff ID number of pre-registered members is provided for means of verification of registration into the Lifestyle program.
We may also ask some further questions for different purposes, such as competitions, feedback forms or opinion polls, so we can gain a clearer understanding of our Registered Members.
The provision of personal details (other than the mandatory fields required for membership) in all cases is optional.

When you access our website, our web server logs anonymous information for standard statistical analysis, such as:
# the computer IP address the website is accessed from
# the date and time of your visit
# the pages you viewed
# the type of browser you are using

The statistics package collates the data into information and graphs for use in understanding the usage patterns of visitors to our website. The statistics package does not identify any individual user during this process.
Why we collect your information, and what we do with it

Information shared with other organisations
We will never share your personally identifying information with a third party/other organisation without your explicit permission/consent, unless:
# required by law
# we believe it necessary to provide you with a service which you have requested

At times we may share anonymous information with our sponsors, suppliers and service providers associated with the Lifestyle program.

For example, we might report to our partners that a certain percentage of our users are interested in certain events and activities, based on information requests. This is done to attract better and improved services for our members from our sponsors, suppliers and service providers.
For a Registered Member whose employer is responsible for payment of membership fees in full or part, the Registered Member consents to the sharing of mandatory registration information between the Authority and the Members employer as deemed necessary in their absolute discretion in order to administer the Lifestyle program.
Under the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (NSW), Registered Members may request access to view personal information collected by the Authority for the administration of Lifestyle.
