We may disclose Your personal information to third parties for the following purposes:

WLWA aims to impose contractual restrictions equivalent to those imposed on WLWA under the Privacy Act with respect to the collection and use of personal information on third parties. In some cases, the ability of WLWA to do this is limited, especially with respect to social media sites. WLWA aims to consider these risks to the protection of personal information when entering into arrangements with third parties.
These third parties may be located in Australia or overseas.
We may disclose Your personal information (excluding sensitive information) to third parties for the purpose of direct marketing WLWA. In this case, You will be able to opt out of such direct marketing any time if You so choose.
WLWA will not sell or receive payment for licensing/disclosing Your personal information.
Information that You disclose publicly
Where You post information in publicly accessible places such as a chat room or a public profile on our site You may be contacted by anyone.
The number and nature of social media platforms is changing rapidly and the way in which information is shared between them is becoming increasingly legally and technically complex. We aim to provide the ability to opt out where possible. Please be aware that We may continue to use or store Your personal information provided by You prior to opting out. Your ability to opt out of a third party tool or platform will depend on the conditions governing Your agreement with that third party.
We recommend that You refrain from posting Your personal information publicly if you do not want to be contacted. Our membership registration page clearly shows which information is required for administrative purposes (available to WLWA only) and which information is optional for the purposes of creating a public profile on our site.
Use of Your Personal Information to contact You
We will take reasonable and practical steps to protect Your personal information from unauthorised access or use. We also ask You to be vigilant about the protection of Your own personal information when using social media platforms and other third party digital services.
