Privacy Policy

This policy outlines how we protect the privacy of your personal information collected in connection with your access to the Outback Astronomy website.

Generally, your personal information is collected during the course of various interactions which depend upon our relationship with you. We use this information to conduct our business and administrative functions with you.

If you respond to a call to action on our website, eg subscribe to receive our newsletter, register for promotional campaigns or register to become a Friend of the Observatory, you will provide information about yourself eg your email address, name and possibly the location where you live. We will store this information safely and securely and will not provide this information to any other business.

If you purchase tickets to attend shows on our website, you will be required to make payment through a secure payment gateway. PayPal’s security page can be viewed at www.paypal.com/au.

If you wish to communicate with us via our Contact page, you may do so, anonymously if you prefer.

At times you may give us your mobile phone number or email address so that we can communicate with you about the status of some evening shows, eg if the weather is poor. This information held for these purposes is destroyed as soon as possible after you have attended the show or concluded a refund process with us or a third party vendor.

We won’t collect and store information about you that is unnecessary. We will destroy information we have about you once your business transactions with us are completed. We will keep information about you in order to continue to communicate with you if you have allowed this, eg to receive our newletter, to receive promotional campaign rewards or to receive news about Friends of the Observatory.

You may opt out of any communications with us by clicking on Unsubscribe.

We do not give our data about you to other parties. However, if you access another website from our website via a link, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of the linked web site.

You can contact us at any time to request to know what information we have collected and stored about you. If you are a subscriber to our newsletter or registered as a Friend of the Observatory, we will take reasonable steps to ensure the personal information we have about you is up to date.

We regard data security as a priority matter and we take all reasonable steps to ensure your personal information is safe.
