The Churchie Old Boys' Association (OBA) maintains a database of Churchie Old Boys and other friends in order to stay in touch with our community and keep you updated with news, events and careers initiatives.
Some of our database (but not all) choose to join our online community by registering on this website and creating an online profile. In both instances (individuals with offline database records and individuals with online profiles), we collect and store personal information (or “data”) about you. We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and this Policy sets out what information we collect about you, where and how we use (“process”) it.
We may change this Policy from time to time. If we make any significant changes, we will advertise this on the website or contact you directly with the information. Please check this page occasionally to make sure you are happy with any changes.
If you have any questions about this Policy or concerning your personal information, please contact the OBA office at firstname.lastname@example.org
For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and any subsequent Australian legislation covering data protection, the Data Controller is Anglican Church Grammar School.What type of personal information we collect
