Personal Information is information or an opinion about a reasonably identifiable individual. The information collected may include an individual’s name, signature, contact details, driver’s license, date of birth and images.

If you apply for a job with us sensitive information such as information about an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, membership of a professional or trade association, membership of a trade union, criminal record or health information may be collected where we have your consent.
Where reasonably practical to do so we will collect personal information from you directly when you use our casino and hotel products and services or communicate with us. Depending on the product or service we provide to you, we may collect your personal information from third parties including booking agents who liaise with us and or make bookings on your behalf and electronic means (if applicable).
If you chose not to provide personal information we may not be able to provide certain services to you.

- to promote our organisation through marketing initiatives;
- to facilitate participation in our loyalty programs;
- to obtain credit reports from a credit reporting agency to assess applications for a cheque cashing facility;
- to protect individuals against theft and other illegal activities.
We take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. These include:
- using appropriate information technology and processes, which contain network security systems with appropriate firewalls and passwords for the protection of files;
- restricting access to your personal information by employees and those who perform services for us who need your personal information to do what we have engaged them to do;
- securely destroying personal information if we no longer require it, subject to our legal obligations.
We may need to disclose personal information where we are required or authorised by law to do so including for casino regulatory and anti-money laundering and counter terrorism financing legislation purposes.
