BaseballNews.org.au - Privacy Promise

Hills Juniors has created this Privacy Promise in order to demonstrate our commitment to protecting your privacy. The following statement discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for emaill subscribers to the Hills Junior Baseball Newsletter.

The Publisher is:-

Our promise to you is very simple, and is as follows:-

We will never share information about you with any third party without your permission (unless required by law).

In support of this promise, we are pleased to advise as follows:-
Firstly and most important, the general HJBA Privacy Policy (to which all HJBA members are bound), does not apply to this website nor the newsletter mailing list. This Newsletter is a separate service, and is available to non-members. Players who want to update their contact details on the ABF "MyClub" database are asked to do so in the usual way:- via your home club. You cannot do so via this site  because there is no link between this mailing list and MyClub.


Secondly, we comply fully with the requirements of Australian Federal Law.

"The Federal Privacy Act contains ... ten National Privacy Principles (NPPs) which apply to parts of the private sector and all health service providers." Our response to those ten Principles is stated below.


Thirdly, we comply fully with the provisions of the SPAM Act 2003. We will never send you a newsletter or other email without your consent, without identifying ourselves as the publisher, or without providing you with a simple and functional "unsubscribe" process should you not wish to receive further emails.

Finally, we encourage you to check out our Security Statement which deals further with measures that we have taken to ensure that we can make good on our Privacy Promise.

Note:- Third-party Sites

This site contains links to other sites for your convenience. These third-party sites may also request personal information from you. These third-party sites are not covered by this Privacy Promise and HJBA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites. These sites may have their own privacy policies or statements and we encourage you to learn their practices before providing information.
