SERVICES

All bookings for an event run by Business Chicks must be in writing. A booking is accepted by Business Chicks once written notification is provided to you. An acceptance of a booking by Business Chicks is then to be an acceptance by Business Chicks and the customer of these Terms of Sale to the exclusion of any terms and conditions imposed by Business Chicks until accepted by the customer. No booking is binding on Business Chicks until accepted by it.

Entry to the event will be refused if payment has not been recived prior to the event.

Event tickets are non-refundable and can not be credited towards any other event or product.

A ticket is transferable to another person only by the original ticket holder only for the event that has been booked. A request must be submitted in writing to events@businesschicks.com.au and must include the replacement guest’s name, business name and email address. It will be the responsibility of the original ticket holder to organise the replacement guest and to inform Business Chicks at least 48 hours prior to the event.

Business Chicks reserves the right to refuse entry if the replacement guest arrives at the event without the ticket being transferred by the original ticket holder in writing to events@businesschicks.com.au or updated online prior to the event.

The customer acknowledges that cameras, audio and video recorders may not be permitted at certain events. The customer also acknowledges that Business Chicks films and photographs every event and that the customer consents to Business Chicks using their name, likeness, image and or voice in the event that they are photographed or filmed in any media for an unlimited period without remuneration for the purpose of promoting any service and or products supplied, and or distributed, by Business Chicks.

Ticket prices are subject to change and Business Chicks will inform you accordingly if there is a change in ticket price. The customer must pay the ticket price, plus the booking fee for an event and any applicable GST.

If an event is cancelled or postponed by Business Chicks, the customer may credit the ticket price towards another event, or obtain a full refund of the ticket price. No administration fee will be charged.

Business Chicks reserves the right to approve requests for a manual invoice to be provided for event tickets. Full payment must be received at least 24 hours prior to the event. If full payment is not received prior to this time, the booking will be cancelled. Issuing of a manual invoice incurs a $49 administration charge and any associated credit-card fees.

To submit a request for a manual invoice, please email events@businesschicks.com.au with the name of the event, the location, the number of tickets as well as the invoicing details. If the request is accepted, a manual invoice will then be prepared by our Accounts department and forwarded to the customer from accounts@businesschicks.com.au for payment due immediately.
GOODS

An order given to Business Chicks is binding on Business Chicks and the customer if a written acceptance is signed for or on behalf of Business Chicks; or the goods or services are supplied by Business Chicks in accordance with the order. An acceptance of the order by Business Chicks is then to be an acceptance of these Terms of Sale by Business Chicks and the customer and these Terms of Sale will override any conditions contained in the customer’s order. No order is binding on Business Chicks until accepted by it.

An order that has been accepted in whole or in part by Business Chicks cannot be cancelled by the customer without obtaining the prior written approval of Business Chicks, which it may refuse at its absolute discretion.

The times quoted for delivery are estimates only and Business Chicks accepts no liability for failure or delay in delivery of goods. The customer is not relieved of any obligation to accept or pay for goods by reason of any delay in delivery. Goods may be delivered by installments at the discretion of Business Chicks.

Risk in accepting the goods passes on delivery to the customer. All additional charges are payable by the customer in addition to the purchase price of the goods.

Return of goods will not be accepted by Business Chicks except by prior agreement in writing with Business Chicks.

The customer must pay the purchase price and the additional charges to Business Chicks. If the customer is in default, Business Chicks may at its option withhold further deliveries or cancel a contract without prejudice to any of its existing rights.

GST will be shown separately in the tax invoice for the sale of the goods. The amount of GST payable in respect of the supply of the goods is payable by the customer. The customer must indemnify Business Chicks in respect of GST paid and payable by Business Chicks for the supply of the goods.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Certain laws imply terms, conditions and warranties (prescribed terms) into contracts for the supply of goods and services and prohibit the exclusion, restriction or modification of such term, conditions and warranties. The liability of Business Chicks in respect of a breach of a prescribed term or any warranty made under these terms of sale is limited, to the extent permissible by law and at the option of Business Chicks to:

• In the case of services, the supply of the services again; or the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again; and

• In the case of goods, the replacement of goods or the supply of equivalent goods; the repair of goods; the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or acquiring equivalent goods; or the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired.

You have the option to interact anonymously or using a pseudonym with our website. However, if you choose to remain anonymous or use a pseudonym, your experience with our website may be diminished and we may not be able to offer you our full range of services.

Unsolicited personal information

Where we receive unsolicited personal information about you, we will check whether that information is reasonably necessary for our functions or activities. If it is, we will handle this information the same way we do with other information we seek from you. If not, we will destroy or de-identify it.

Use and disclosure of your personal information

Your personal information, including your email address, will be used, either on its own or as part of aggregated data, for the following primary purposes:

• providing you with news and information about our services and functions;

• purposes necessary or incidental to the provision of our services and functions;

• to ensure the proper functioning of our Website including customising and improving your online experience with us;

• to ensure the proper functioning of the Business Chicks business;

• to assist Business Chicks with our marketing, planning, product development and research requirements;

• sending you marketing and promotional material that we believe you may be interested in.

We will not use or disclose (or permit the use or disclosure of) personal information that could be used to identify an individual member in any circumstances except:

• to ensure the proper functioning of our business and the Website;

• to communicate promotional offers and special events to you;

• where applicable law requires, or authorises, us or a company holding data on our behalf to do so; or

• where you have given express consent to us for a prescribed purpose. Only with your express consent will we use or disclose Personal Information (including Sensitive Information) about you for the purposes of direct marketing.

You can ask us not to do this at any time by contacting our Privacy Officer at info@businesschicks.com.au.

If we are compelled to disclose your Personal Information to a third party, we will take reasonable steps to notify you of this in advance, wherever it is lawful and reasonable for us to do so. We will not sell your personal information.

Security of personal information

In our business, personal information may be stored both electronically and in hardcopy form. We are committed to keeping your personal information secure regardless of the format in which we hold it and we take all reasonable steps to protect your information from misuse, interference, loss, and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. However, your use of the Website is at your own risk and we accept no responsibility, whether we are deemed to have been negligent or not, in the event of a breach of your privacy.

Note that no information transmitted over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. However, we will endeavour to protect your personal information as best as possible but we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to us, or receive from us. The transmission and exchange of information is carried out at your own risk.

The protective steps we take from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorised access, modification and disclosure of your personal information include:

• confidentiality requirements of our employees;

• document storage security policies;

• security measures for access to our systems; and

• only providing access to personal information to a person who is verified to be able to receive that information.

Accuracy and quality of personal information

We will take all such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that all information requested from you is kept accurate, up to date and complete. However, we cannot undertake to ensure that such data, even where it includes personal information, is kept accurate, up to date and complete. Please notify us if you believe we hold information that is outdated, inaccurate, misleading, irrelevant or incomplete so that it can be corrected. We will not charge you for a correction.

Access to your personal information

In most cases, you have the right to access the personal information that we hold about you. If you wish to access your personal information, please contact our Privacy Officer at info@businesschicks.com.au.

We will deal with all requests for access to personal information as quickly as possible. Requests for a large amount of information, or information that is not currently in use, may require further time before a response can be given.

We may charge you a fee to recover our reasonable costs incurred by us in order to retrieve your information, but in no case will we charge you a fee for your application for access. In some cases, we will refuse to give you access to personal information we hold about you. This includes, but is not limited to, circumstances where giving you access would be unlawful; have an unreasonable impact on other people’s privacy; prejudice an investigation of unlawful activity; reveal our intentions in relation to negotiations with you so as to prejudice those negotiations; prejudice enforcement related activities conducted by, or on behalf of, an enforcement body; reveal evaluative information generated within the Business Chicks organisation in connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process.

We will also refuse access where the personal information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings, and the information would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings. Further, we will refuse access where your request is frivolous or vexatious, and where we reasonably believe that: giving access would pose a serious threat to the life, health or safety of any individual, or to public health or public safety; unlawful activity, or misconduct of a serious nature, is being or may be engaged in against Business Chicks and giving access would be likely to prejudice the taking of appropriate action in relation to that matter.

If we refuse to give you access we will provide you with reasons for our refusal, unless doing so would be unreasonable in the circumstances. We will also take reasonable steps to give you access in a way that meets your needs without giving rise to the reasons of our refusal. Further, we will provide details of how you may make a complaint about our decision.

Correction of your personal information

The accuracy of the personal information we have requested from you is important to us. Should you suspect, or become aware of, that Personal Information we hold as a result of having requested it from you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete or misleading, please contact our Privacy Officer at info@businesschicks.com.au.

We will deal with all requests for correction of personal information as quickly as possible. Requests relating to a large amount of information, or information which is not currently in use, may require further time before a response can be given. If we refuse to change the personal information as you request, we will provide you with reasons for our refusal, unless doing to would be unreasonable in the circumstances. We will also provide details of how you may make a complaint about our decision. Further, in case of our refusal, you may request that we take reasonable steps to associate, with the relevant information, a statement that you view it as inaccurate, out of date, incomplete or misleading. In the case we have corrected personal information about you, you may request that we take reasonable steps to give notice of the correction to any third party to which we have disclosed the inaccurate, out of date, incomplete or misleading personal information.

Cross-border disclosure of personal information

To provide you with the best service possible, we may use ‘cloud’ based technology services to hold your data, including your Personal Information. As a consequence, your data, including your Personal Information (and if you have provided such information, your sensitive Personal Information) may be held in the data centres used by a provider of such ‘cloud’ based technology services.

It is important to note that, by becoming a Business Chicks member or by using the Website, you consent to your data, including your Personal Information (and where applicable, your sensitive personal information) being transferred to data centres located outside of Australia. Your decision to become a Business Chicks member or to use the website also signals your consent to this technical arrangement under which Business Chicks does not exercise any direct control over the management of your data in those data centres.

Disposal of personal information no longer required

If we hold personal information about you, and we no longer need that information for any purpose for which the information may be used or disclosed, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify that information unless we are prevented from doing so by law.

Unsubscribing from our email database

To unsubscribe from our email database, please do so via any link or function contained in an email, via the Website or send an e-mail to info@businesschicks.com.au with “UNSUBSCRIBE” typed into the subject line of the email.

Amendments of this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to modify or amend this Privacy Policy at any time. Should any significant amendments occur, notification will be provided by publication on the website 14 days prior to the changes being implemented (the Notice Period) unless the circumstances of the amendments makes it unreasonable to provide such a Notice Period.
