GCVC is required by law to obtain consent in the collection of “sensitive” information and as such, will assume consent to the collection of all sensitive information provided to us for use in accordance with this Privacy Policy, unless told otherwise.

GCVC may disclose personal information in certain circumstances.  For example:

·         when required by law

·         to an enforcement body when reasonably necessary 

·         to lessen or prevent a threat to an individual or public health or safety.

·         When engaging Third Party services for Direct Debit Payment Plans or Debt Collection


GCVC will, before or at the time of collection, take reasonable steps to ensure that persons are aware of:

·         the purpose for which the information is collected

·         the organisations or types of organisations to which GCVC usually discloses information of that kind.


As well as collecting information directly, there may be occasions when GCVC will collect information from third parties. For example, from Member States or State Affiliates.


All personal information collected by GCVC is only available to those authorised individuals who need to handle that information for the purpose of its collection.

In some circumstances, personal information may also be disclosed outside GCVC (ie. to uniform suppliers, sponsors, medical providers, those organisations required by law, mailing houses and other service providers,) and outside Australia.  In such circumstances, GCVC will require such parties to keep the information confidential and not to use the information other than the purpose for which it is disclosed to them. 

We will assume consent to use non-sensitive information to provide better services and for direct marketing purposes (this may include receiving up-to-date information about events, news and sponsors’ products/services/offers etc). GCVC will also assume consent to disclose personal information to service providers (such as a mailing house) to assist with this process.

If a person has an outstanding debt for more than six months to GCVC, the amount of that debt and the name of the indebted person may be placed on a register maintained by GCVC and distributed to State and National bodies.  If a person listed on that register applies for membership of a different Member State or Membership Club, the circumstances of and reason for that debt may be disclosed by GCVC.

Every person whose data is collected by GCVC will have the option to refuse e-mail or posted offers from GCVC by notifying the GCVC Privacy Officer.


GCVC will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information it collects, uses or discloses is accurate, complete and up-to-date. Personal information can be corrected, completed or up-dated by contacting the GCVC Privacy Officer.


GCVC stores information in different ways, including by paper and in electronic form.

The security of personal information is important to GCVC and reasonable steps to protect it from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure will be taken.

Some of the security measures GCVC uses include:

·         Confidentiality requirements of our employees and service providers 

·         Security measures for system access

·         Security measures on the GCVC website

Note that in the interest of protecting the privacy of all our members and customers, GCVC must properly identify the individual and as such, GCVC may telephone the person or require current name and address and a form of identification (such as a driver’s licence or passport) before access to information is provided.

GCVC will assume, unless told otherwise, that a request relates to current records. This will include the personal information which is held on database and files. Generally, a request for information from current records will not attract a charge.

For legal and administrative reasons, GCVC may also store records containing personal information in its archives. A person may seek access to such records, but may be charged a fee for access.


GCVC is required by law to obtain consent in the collection of “sensitive” information.   Sensitive information includes (but is not limited to) information that reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or affiliations, health information or details of criminal records.
