15 Summary Safeguarding privacy is important for business because the club must retain members’ trust There are financial and non-financial implications for a penalties such as fines under the law and adverse impact on the club’s reputation If you are unsure, do not hesitate to ask the Club Manager or the designated Privacy Officer

16 Training Instructions 1.The club manager or the designated privacy officer can conduct this training using the document titled Staff Guide to the Industry Privacy Policy which contains the necessary explanatory materials. a.The training slides are based on the generic industry privacy policy (including the same title and numbering of section headings). As each club is required to customise the policy to its particular circumstances, the club manager / privacy officer should do the same with the training slides. b.Ensure that the training reflects the Privacy Policy, as a material difference between the Privacy Policy and what the club does in practice may expose the club and its officers to non-compliance and liability. 2.All staff and volunteers should attend the training. They should receive a copy of the club’s Privacy Policy, as well as any procedure document relating to privacy practices at the club. 3.The club manager / privacy officer should keep a record of the training and can use the document titled Register of Privacy Training for this purpose. At an appropriate time, employees / volunteers must sign the register which contains a declaration that they understand and agree to abide by the Privacy Policy. _______________________________________ © 2013 Clubs Queensland All rights reserved.
