Collection, Security, Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information

Broadwater Hospitality Pty Ltd ABN 79 009 470 688, trading as Broadwater Hotels and Resorts (collectively referred to herein as Broadwater, us or we) is a resort management company that manages and operates 3.5 to 4.5 star resorts in Western Australia. Broadwater resorts are comprised of short stay accommodation, food and beverage outlets, conference and function services, and a range of other resort oriented goods, services and activities.

In the course of its business, Broadwater collects, uses and discloses information about our guests, customers and visitors (Personal Information). In the course of this collection, use and disclosure, we are committed to protecting your privacy.

This Privacy Policy was drafted in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), which came into effect on 12 March 2014 and replaced the National Privacy Principles. The APPs are contained within the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Act) and relevant regulations including the Privacy Regulations 2013 (Cth) (the Regulations). You can find an explanation of the APPs by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner here.

Broadwater reserves its rights to review, update and amend this Privacy Policy from time-to-time and in accordance with the APPs, the Act, the Regulations and other relevant laws.

The APPs and this Privacy Policy do not apply to information relating to current or former employees of Broadwater or their employee records.
