Your privacy is very important to us which is why we will only collect information about you that you voluntarily give to us.

Below you will find information about our policy regarding personal information you may supply to us via this website and how we might use the information we collect.

Collection and use of your information

We only collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us. For example, this site gives you the opportunity to join our mailing list so that we may inform you about information on the festival that you may be interested in.

We use the information we collect from you to allow you to participate in our site. For example, when you give us your email address to receive updates on the festival, your email address is added to our email list. On each email you receive from us you are given the opportunity to unsubscribe. When you unsubscribe, we remove your email address permanently from our mailing list.

For competitions conducted on our site, we use the personal information you provide for the purpose of contacting you if you win a prize and sending the prize to you. We won’t use your contact details for any purpose other than as expressly stated in the competition terms and conditions.

We do not share personal information provided by you to anyone outside of Canberra Writers Festival Inc and its partnership and affiliated group entities and partner companies, and our affiliated group entities and partner companies are required to protect your information in the same way we do. In the event we hold a joint promotion in conjunction with another organisation, we will give you the opportunity to be contacted by our promotions partner. Your details will not be provided to our promotions partner unless you have opted in.

Accuracy, Security and Access

If you think we hold information about you which is incorrect or out of date please contact us and bring us up to speed with the correct details. We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of your personal information and to prevent unauthorised access to it by those who do not have a legitimate need for it.

You can update your details at any time. If at any time you wish to know what details we are holding about you, simply send us an email requesting your details.
