1. Collection of personal information
The personal information that we collect and store will generally include:
- Full name

Collection of these details is essential for processing and maintaining your membership. We may also collect data on the way you utilise and participate in services, promotions and activities within the club and when making purchases or playing gaming machines.
Visitors and guests
Under the Registered Clubs Act Patrons visiting any of our clubs are required to produce suitable identification to gain entry to the premises. Suitable identification is primarily Driver’s License, Passport and Proof of Age Cards. We record your details when signing in. The Panthers group uses an electronic sign in system and in most cases will scan your identification for faster and safer processing. If you do not wish to have your identification scanned you can notify us prior to signing in. For more information regarding our sign in procedures or identification requirements please contact your local Panthers Club.
2. Use and disclosure of personal information
We will only use your personal information for the purpose in which you have provided it or where we are required or authorised to do so by law. Primarily we will use your personal information in order to contact you regarding promotions and offers that we believe will be of particular interest to you. If you do not wish to be contacted, wish to change or cease the type of offers you are receiving or if you wish to change the method in which we contact you, you can notify us at any time and we will update your preferences.
We may also use your personal information to understand and improve the way you use our Clubs services or amenities. We encourage you to always present your Membership Club when transacting a sale within our premises or using a gaming machine as this allows us to measure the success and suitability of services and offers that we provide to you.
There are circumstances where the Panthers Group may need to share your personal information with an organisation that is facilitating the operation of our business by helping us to improve our services to you or hosting our communication methods. An example of this would be an email host or SMS service provider. Our service providers are required to maintain the confidentiality of any personal information we collect.
