- You agree that if you submit your personal information to us, we may create a database record about you;
1. Your personal information is important to us
ESPN Australia is committed to safeguarding your personal privacy. We recognise that you have a right to control how your personal information is collected and used. We know that providing personal information is an act of trust and we take that seriously.
Unless you directly give us consent to do otherwise, ESPN Australia will only collect and use your personal information as set out below.
2. Our services
3. Collecting information about you
ESPN Australia will not collect or monitor any personal information about you without your consent. The only personal information we collect is what you tell us about yourself.
When you apply for a product from us (online or in a face to face with one of our representatives), we may ask for your personal information (such as name and address) in order to service your application. You do not have to provide us with this information if that is your preference. However, failure to do so may result in ESPN Australia being unable to sell you products and/or provide certain services including after services.
ESPN Australia may also use web tools known as clear GIFs on our site, email communications and on the web sites of our affiliates, partners or clients. Clear GIFs do not store or contain any personally identifiable information but they allow us to track the effectiveness of promotions or campaign activity.
ESPN Australia can track user-activity on our partners', advertisers' clients' or affiliates' sites. This system uses a combination of a cookie and a clear GIF to enable us to identify actions that you have taken in response to a promotion or an email. By disabling support for cookies in your browser, we will be unable to recognise your actions and this may affect your entitlements. This system does not allow any third-party to access any of your personally identifiable information.
5. Using and disclosing your personal information
We intend to use your information for the following purposes only:
- To fulfil our obligation under any contract and/or any other contract between you and ESPN Australia.
- To provide you with information about our products, service and/or special offers.
- To ask you for your opinion or comments about our products and/or services.
- To track general traffic patterns showing the usage of our web site.
Please also note that in order to operate the web site or deliver a service we may sometimes share your personal information with a financial institution, a non-ESPN Australia company.
As ESPN Australia recognise the trust you place in us when you give us personal information, we will not use or disclose any information about you for other purposes without your consent, except for in exceptional cases such as if disclosure is required by laws or is necessary to protect the rights or property of ESPN Australia, or any member of the public, or to lessen a serious threat to a person's health or safety.

We may contact you at the email or other address which you provide to us in order to:
- Provide you with information which may be of interest about updates, new ESPN Australia products and other matters which may interest you.

Your information is stored on secure servers that are protected in controlled facilities. Our employees and data processors are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by ESPN Australia. However, as we cannot guarantee the security of communications over the Internet, we cannot give an absolute assurance that your information will be secure at all times. ESPN Australia will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information.
