What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:

Our enquiry, registration and donation forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, payment information for registration and donations, and similar information.

It is your choice how much information you provide (however we may not be able to fulfill a request if you don’t provide some information). You can change or access these details at any time.

Where possible, you can choose to be anonymous or use a pseudonym, however in some circumstances that may not be practicable.

We use this information to process your registration and donation payments, issue receipts, communicate information about the Ride and the work of our beneficiary charity, and to organize key elements of your Ride participation such as tent allocations, meal preferences etc.

Sometimes we may need to store or use your information in a country other than Australia, usually because one of our technical systems is located or needs to process data overseas (for instance, our website, social media channels, email). As of the last update of this policy, the countries in which we use data include:

United States

Who do we disclose your personal information to?

We occasionally require external suppliers to assist us in our activities, and may provide your information to them in order to achieve these. For example, printing identification for participants on The Ride, or large mailings.

We will also provide the contact information of donors and registered participants to our beneficiary charity. You can at your discretion opt out of further communications from them. Use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policy, available on their website.
