The main types of information that WCA collects are contact details such as email address, name, address, date of birth; gender, and information about you including but not limited to; your business name, business address, employer’s name, employer’s address and the industry that you work in.
We collect most of this information directly from you during a training course or workshop or via newsletter signup or online enquiry via our website. We only collect information that is needed for a specific purpose. If you contact us to lodge an enquiry, we may keep a record of that contact.

WCA relies on your personal information in the daily running of the business such as in:
Processing payment for services or products you buy from us;
Promotion of new products or services; and/or
Our internal management of staff and contractors.
We will only disclose your personal information to a third party when we have your consent to do so. WCA generally does not otherwise use or disclose personal information unless:
Required by law; or
To protect the rights, property or personal safety of another WCA customer, another WCA employee or any member of the public; or
If the assets and operations of the business are transferred to another party as a going concern.
If you provide your personal information to us, we will give you the choice to unsubscribe from any email service that delivers further information about special offers, promotions, and changes to our products and services.
