The purpose of our Privacy Policy is to explain the following:

Privacy: Collection and Use of Personal Information

Why We Collect Personal Information

As a Registered Club, we are required to collect basic information about our members that cover data such as names, addresses, and contact details.

In addition to this information, we request optional additional information that might help us constantly improve our service offerings, in the interest of our members and guests.

If you work for the Club as an employee or are associated with the Club as a supplier or contractor, we will naturally have some basic details on you or your organization.

How We Collect Information

The club may collect personal information from you in a number of ways. These include, but are not limited to, when you:

  • Apply for membership;
  • Request to receive products or services;
  • Purchase food or beverage or other products;
  • Use credit card or EFTPOS card for purchases;
  • Provide products or services;
  • Use the club’s website or WIFI;
  • Enter a competition or voting forum;
  • Utilize the Club’s services;
  • And complete a survey or questionnaire.

Personal Information That Is Required

When you become a member or when you update your membership details, we are required to collect contact details that are held in a membership database that is safe and secure. This information is not shared with any organizations outside the club and its associated venues unless for reasons of database maintenance or software development. This will be done under strict agreements and supervision.

Under legislation, when a non-member, living within the 5 km radius, visits the Club, the individual has to be signed in by a current member or an affiliated club membership card may be used. To make this process simple, we scan their identity card (driver’s licence, photo-card, or pension card). For temporary members who do not wish to scan their information, they have the option to enter their details into the system manually.

This information is secure and is not used for any purpose other than our need to comply with the legislation.

When a membership card is used in a gaming machine, swipe machine, or at any of our restaurants, bars, or point of sale outlets, the information is used to award ‘POWER POINTS’ and is cross-referenced with our membership database. This information, in a consolidated manner, is used to help make decisions on changing or improving our service offerings.

Personal Information That Is Optional

When using our websites, you have the option to provide the club with your address, email address, and mobile number, or update the information.

When using any future digital application (app) or service that the Club might introduce in the immediate future, you have the option of leaving your personal details.

When you make a complaint or you compliment the Club on its service offering or its customer service delivery, your personal details will be desirable.

When you are browsing through our website, we collect information about the pages that members and visitors use. This helps us determine what our readers find most interesting.

When we conduct research or surveys, our interest is aggregate data. We are obliged to make it clear to you if any research or survey could identify you, personally.

Smoke-Free Environment Policy

Under the Liquor Act 2007, the Registered Clubs Act 1976, and the Casino Control Act 1992, venues are able to ask a patron to leave if they continue to smoke in a smoke-free area. If a patron fails to leave when asked, they may receive an on-the-spot fine of $550 or a maximum penalty of up to $5,500.

Pottsville Beach Sports Club will provide a smoke-free environment in enclosed areas of all its licensed premises.

Objectives – This policy is intended to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of all patrons and staff, to ensure compliance with any relevant legislation, to minimize the litter associated with cigarettes, and to promote initiatives associated with the cessation of smoking in the community.

Scope – This policy will apply to all members, visitors, staff, & contractors at all licensed premises of Pottsville Beach Sports Club.

Supporting Legislation – The objectives of this policy are supported by the provisions of:

  • Smoke-Free Environment Act 2000 (NSW)
  • NSW Smoke-Free Environment Amendment Act 2004 (NSW)
  • Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000 (NSW)
  • Public Health Act 1991 (NSW)
  • Protection of the Environment Operations Amendment (Littering) Act 2000
  • Registered Clubs Act 1976 (NSW)
  • Workers Compensation Act 1987 (NSW)
  • Local Government Act (NSW).

Any breach of this policy by a Club or staff member will be dealt with in line with the relevant disciplinary procedure of our Club.

4-Metre Rule Provision – In compliance with the New South Wales Health Department’s regulations, Pottsville Beach Sports Club adheres to the “4-metre law.” This law stipulates that no smoking is allowed within 4 metres of a pedestrian entrance or exit of a public building. The intent of this provision is to reduce the exposure of non-smokers to second-hand tobacco smoke, contributing further to the health and safety of all patrons and staff within the vicinity of the Club’s premises.

This provision is an extension of our commitment to provide a smoke-free environment and is supported by the Smoke-Free Environment Act 2000 (NSW) and the Public Health (Tobacco) Act 2008. Compliance with this rule is mandatory for all members, visitors, staff, and contractors of Pottsville Beach Sports Club. Signage indicating the boundaries of the smoke-free zone around entrances and exits will be clearly displayed to ensure everyone is aware of and can comply with this regulation.

Failure to adhere to the 4-metre rule may result in immediate action by Club Management and staff, including asking the offender to comply or leave the premises. Such measures are in place to enforce a healthier, smoke-free environment for everyone at the Club.

Responsibilities and Enforcement – As with the broader Smoke-Free Environment Policy, members, visitors, staff, and contractors are responsible for:

  • Complying with the 4-metre rule, along with all other aspects of the Smoke-Free Environment Policy.
  • Following all directions and instructions issued by Management and staff regarding the 4-metre rule.
  • Reporting any breaches of the 4-metre rule to Management and staff for appropriate action.

Club Management and staff are empowered to enforce this rule diligently, ensuring that the health and comfort of all individuals on the premises are protected. Compliance with this rule is essential for maintaining the smoke-free integrity of our environment, and we appreciate the cooperation and support of our entire community in upholding these standards.
