1. How is personal information collected?
EVOLUTION PUBLISHING is Australia's leading gay and lesbian publishing house. In order to provide customers with a quality service, EVOLUTION PUBLISHING offers customers the ability to purchase tickets through online sales available through our website. In order to provide this service, EVOLUTION PUBLISHING collects personal information about customers. Collection will occur at the time you make a purchase through our website.
2. What personal information does EVOLUTION PUBLISHING collect and why?
If you purchase tickets from EVOLUTION PUBLISHING, we need to collect personal information about you, including your name, address and telephone number. The main reason we need this information is so we can contact you in the case of an event cancellation or to notify change of event details or replacement of lost tickets. We may also need some of this information in order to process your payment (for example, if you pay by credit card online). Unless you tell us otherwise, EVOLUTION PUBLISHING may use personal information about you for marketing and research purposes. You can let us know about this at any time - all you need to do is contact EVOLUTION PUBLISHING if you no longer wish to receive marketing material (the contact details are listed below).
3. Will personal information be given to anyone else?
4. Security of personal information
EVOLUTION PUBLISHING protects the personal information it collects in a secure database. EVOLUTION PUBLISHING employees are required, as a condition of their employment, to treat personal information held by EVOLUTION PUBLISHING as confidential, and to maintain the confidentiality of that personal information.
5. Non-customer information
Sometimes, EVOLTUION PUBLISHING needs to collect personal information about individuals who are not customers. This will usually arise where we collect the name and business contact details of a person who is the contact in a government agency or company with whom we deal. EVOLUTION PUBLISHING'S policy is to only use personal information collected from non-customers for the main business purpose for which it was collected.
6. Access and correction
Under the Privacy Act, you have a right to seek access to information which EVOLUTION PUBLISHING holds about you. You also have the right to ask us to correct information about you which is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.

If you are not an on-line customer, but would like to seek access to our collection of personal information about you, you should follow the procedure set out below. To provide you with access to personal information about you, EVOLUTION PUBLISHING would usually provide you with a print-out of the relevant personal information from our databases, or if relevant, with photocopies of information stored in paper files. If you wish to access the personal information that we hold about you, please set out your request in writing, including your phone number, and forward this to our Privacy Officer at Level 3, 140 William St, Sydney NSW 2010. In the interests of protecting the privacy of individuals about whom we hold personal information, we will require that you verify your identity by enclosing a copy of a form of identification such as a current driver's licence or passport with your written request (this will be returned to you after your identity has been verified). Ordinarily, EVOLUTION PUBLISHING will not charge you for the cost of providing this type of access to these records. However, if we do propose to charge you, we will advise you of the relevant charge before we provide you with access. If you wish to discuss our method of providing access, please contact our Privacy Officer with your query. If you wish to change personal information that is inaccurate or out-of-date, please contact our Privacy Officer, using the contact details at Section 9, with your request for correction.
