What information does Gavelhouse collect?
We may collect personal information from you when you apply to open an account with us to become a registered user of our site to enable the advertising for sale of thoroughbred horses and associated goods and services. Such personal information includes your name, the name of your business, address, telephone number and email address.

We do not collect any personal or financial information which is required to be given by you to enable the online payment of our fees via our Website. Any information required to be given by you to enable such a payment to take place is transacted offline by the financial institution which provides the payment transaction facility.
Under the Privacy Act, you have the right to seek access to your personal information handled by us. You also have the right to ask us to update or correct your personal information when it is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.
Who does Gavelhouse disclose collected information to?
We do not sell, rent or trade personal information about you to or with third parties. We endeavour not to disclose personal information.

- Comply with the NPPs when they handle personal information about you; and
- Are authorised only to use personal information for the purposes agreed between the external providers and us.
Otherwise, we will not disclose personal information unless required by law or permitted under the Privacy Act.
