Our approach to privacy

The Play by the Rules (PBTR) collaborators are committed to protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information. The following statement relates to our service provision via this website and the PBTR Learning Portal.

What information do we collect?

This website does not use any form of tracking cookie. The PBTR website collects a record of your visit to our website and logs the following information for statistical analysis and system administration purposes:

  • the IP address of your Internet Service Provider
  • the date and time of the visit to the site
  • the pages accessed and documents downloaded
  • the previous site visited and the type of browser used

No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except where authorised by law, for example, in the unlikely event of an investigation where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect our service provider's logs. We also collect the following information on our online training courses which is used for statistical analysis and system administration purposes:

  • name
  • email
  • state
  • postcode
  • age
  • gender
  • role
  • primary sport

Statistical reports use this data to report on course completions. These are passed to PBTR State Coordinators and held on the PBTR database. Names are used to enable a personalised certificate to be printed on the successful completion of a course. Email addresses are used to confirm the password and login of a course registrant and to provide any important course updates.

We also collect subscriber data (name and email) when users subscribe to PBTR or complete an online course. These details are kept in a secure environment using a dedicated email provider service. Your personal information will not be released unless the law permits or we have user permission. Users that subscribe agree to receive updates on Play by the Rules related material and information. This may include invitations to events, services or survey tools linked to Play by the Rules. Users can unsubscribe at any time.

Data quality and data security

Every effort is made to ensure that personal information collected, used or disclosed is accurate, complete and up-to-date. We have endeavoured to secure information transmitted to this website over the internet, however, given the nature of the internet, there is a possibility that this information could be accessed by a third party while in transit. The website contains links to other websites. While we have taken care in linking to other websites, the PBTR collaborators have no control over those websites and are not responsible for the privacy, security or content of those sites.
