We collect personal information such as your name, phone number, postal and email address and what we need by lawful means for the particular event for which you register.  The main way we collect personal information about you is when:

  • you give it to us via an enquiry, social media, or make a comment on our website

  • contract with us as a Presenter, Exhibitor, Sponsor or service provider

  • register as a delegate for an Aqua Alliance event

  • join us as a volunteer

We may also obtain personal information from publicly available sources and third parties to enable us to contact persons who may be interested in events such as the AquaSummit.   

On registration for an AquaSummit event, you will decide if you would like to share information, such as, if you have a health and/or medical condition that we need to know about and the person we would contact in an emergency situation.   

We communicate with you via email marketing and offer you a choice to opt-out at any time by using the ‘unsubscribe option’.


Your personal information is stored in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.  

If Aqua Alliance receives unsolicited personal information about you, we will determine whether or not, in the normal course of business, this information could have otherwise been collected if solicited.  The personal information may be disclosed for the purpose of making this determination. If Aqua Alliance determines that it could not have collected the information if solicited, it will destroy the information if it is lawful and reasonable to do so.

Aqua Alliance does not collect sensitive information about an individual unless:

  • the individual consents and the information is reasonably relevant to your attendance and participation at an Aqua Alliance event

  • there is a medical emergency

  • we are required to collect such information under Australian law.

  • we need to process a payment for registration or other event/activity e.g. additional social event tickets, merchandise etc).


Aqua Alliance takes such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to protect personal information from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.

Changes to personal information are usually received directly from the individual or via a bounced email. Personal information is corrected or deleted upon notification from the individual.

If you ask, unless the law states otherwise, we will give access to the personal information that we hold about you, and take reasonable steps to correct if it is considered to be incorrect within 14 days after the request has been received.  Aqua Alliance may request the individual to personally identify themselves prior to disclosure.
