We give information to

If you are a member of Deaf Australia your name and contact information is sent to the state branch of Deaf Australia in the state in which you live. This is because when you join Deaf Australia you also become a member of your state branch. Your state branch needs this information so that they can send you information such as their newsletters and local activities.

We do not give your information to anyone else (unless required by law) without your permission.

If you do not wish to receive information from Deaf Australia or from your state branch, you can tell us and we will not send it to you.

Information that we send to you from other people or organisations

Deaf Australia sometimes receives requests from other people or organisations to send information to our members. This is mainly for research projects that these other organisations are doing. It might also be information about products and services that are suitable for Deaf people.

We do not give your information to these other people or organisations.

Instead, they send us the information they want to send to you, and we send it to you for them.

If you do not wish to receive information from other people or organisations you can tell Deaf Australia, and we will not send it to you.
