Using our websites, cookies and APIs

Our websites use cookies to provide you with a better experience. Cookies are small files that store information on your computer, mobile phone or other device. These cookies allow us to increase your security by storing your session ID and are a way of monitoring single user access. This aggregated, non-personal information is collated to assist us in analysing the usage of the site.

We also use third party cookies and/or conversion application programming interfaces (Conversion APIs) provided by Meta (Facebook) and other social media platform providers, and Google (Platforms) for marketing purposes and conversion tracking.  Conversion APIs are used to track and measure specific actions that users take on a website.  For example, when you make a purchase, fill out a form, or sign up for a newsletter, the conversion API allows websites to send information about these actions directly to a tracking or analytics system, and we can then better understand how users are interacting with our site and can inform decisions to improve user experience or marketing strategies.

Via their cookies and APIs, the Platforms receive non-personal information that you have visited our websites or clicked on an advertisement.   If you are registered with an account with the relevant Platform (for example, you have a Facebook account), the Platform can assign the visit to your Facebook account.

Each Platform’s privacy policy describes how their third party cookie or conversion API handles a user’s data. The Platforms’ respective websites are designed to honour user’s privacy controls and you may be able to de-activate, or limit the application of, the tool by visiting the relevant Platform’s cookie settings.


Our websites may contain links to websites operated by third parties. Those links are provided for convenience and may not remain current or be maintained. Unless expressly stated otherwise, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of, or any content on, those linked websites, and have no control over or rights in those linked websites. The privacy policies that apply to those other websites may differ substantially from our Privacy Policy, so we encourage individuals to read them before using those websites.

How can you access or correct your personal information?

You can access the personal information we hold about you by emailing our Privacy Officer below. Sometimes, we may not be able to provide you with access to all your personal information and, where this is the case, we will tell you why. We may also need to verify your identity when you request your personal information.

If you think that any personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, please contact us and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that it is corrected.

How can you request to delete your personal information and related data?

You can request for your personal information and data to be deleted, by emailing our Privacy Officer as detailed below.

If you are a member of The Pass App, you can also close your account within the app, which automatically deletes all personal information, relating to your The Pass App account. To do this, navigate to settings within The Pass App and select Account Management.

How do you make a complaint?

If you think we have breached the Privacy Act, or you wish to make a complaint about the way we have handled your personal information, you can contact us by emailing our Privacy Officer as detailed below. Please include your name, email address and/or telephone number and clearly describe your complaint. We will acknowledge your complaint and respond to you regarding your complaint within a reasonable period of time.
