Concept Eight is committed to ensuring that personal information collected from our customers and franchisees is managed in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Act), including the Australian Privacy Principles.
“Personal information” has the meaning given to it in the Act. In general terms, it is any information that can be used to personally identify you. This may include your name, address, telephone number and email address. If the information we collect personally identifies you, or you are reasonably identifiable from it, the information will be considered personal information.
Through the Restaurants and official website www.conceptate.com.au customers are given the opportunity to participate in loyalty and feedback programs. By participating in our loyalty program Concept Ate Rewards the customer has the option to supply personal information including name, address, phone numbers, email address, date of birth and opinions to Concept Eight. If you choose not to provide your personal information, you may not be able to participate in the loyalty and feedback programs. Information collected may be used for marketing (including direct marketing), to obtain opinions or comments about products and/or services, to conduct other statistical and market research with a view to improving our service and communication purposes to develop our relationships with customers and continually improve our products and customer service levels with the aim of providing an outstanding and personalised experience for our customers.
Concept Eight does not sell, rent or give away customer’s personal information to other non-affiliated companies or businesses for their profit through the sale of goods or services. We do not sell and therefore do not profit from the sale of customer databases, lists and other personal information to non-affiliated business entities. The only occasion we have to share personal information with third parties is in the general maintenance of the system and the customer database for our own use and benefit.
Personal information provided through submission of an employment application will only be used for the recruitment process. If the application is successful, the information will form part of an employee record. The Act does not apply to employee records. Unsuccessful applications will remain on file should suitable employment opportunities arise in the future and maybe returned or destroyed upon request.
Personal information provided by potential franchisees will not be disclosed to third parties unless required in accordance with the Act. All information provided will be used to assess the suitability of the applicants becoming Concept Eight Franchisees. An applicant has the opportunity not to provide certain information requested, however this may hinder the suitability assessment. If your application is successful your personal information will form part of an ongoing franchisee record. Should your application be unsuccessful you may request to have the information collected returned to you or destroyed.
Concept Eight will take all reasonable precautions to ensure all information provided is kept confidential and remains within the Concept Eight Franchise System. Personal information will not be disclosed to any other parties without your consent unless required in accordance with the Act.
We may send you direct marketing communications and information about our services that we consider may be of interest to you. These communications may be sent in various forms, including mail, SMS, fax and email, in accordance with applicable marketing laws, such as the Spam Act 2003 (Cth). If you indicate a preference for a method of communication, we will endeavour to use that method whenever practical to do so. In addition, at any time you may opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us by contacting us (see the details below) or by using opt-out facilities provided in the marketing communications and we will then ensure that your name is removed from our mailing list.
We may provide your email address to other organisations for the purposes of direct marketing.
