What personal information does Lion collect?
The types of personal information Lion collects will depend on the nature of your dealings with Lion and may (but does not always) include:

If necessary, Lion may also ask you to provide it with additional personal information from time to time, including when you call our Consumer Enquiries line.
What if you don't provide Lion the personal information it requires?
If you can't, or won't, provide Lion with the personal information it reasonably requires, Lion may be unable to provide you with the information, goods or services you have requested.
How does Lion collect my personal information?
Lion tries to collect personal information directly from you. That collection generally occurs when you:

participate in a competition or trade promotion conducted by Lion or one of its related companies;
participate in a survey conducted by Lion or one of its related companies;
purchase tickets or merchandise from this Website; or voluntarily register as a user, access or request information from this Website.

Lion may also use your personal information for other purposes not listed above which will be made clear to you at the time Lion collects that information, or for such purposes as may be required or permitted by law.
If Lion uses your personal information for direct marketing purposes, all electronic messages sent to you by Lion will give you the opportunity to unsubscribe from receiving any further electronic messages.
Will Lion give your personal information to anyone else?
In providing you the information, goods or services you request, Lion may be required to disclose your personal information to:
Lion's related companies (including those located in Australia and New Zealand); and

Other than those third parties referred to above, Lion will not disclose your personal information to any other third party unless it has reasonable grounds to believe:
you have authorised Lion to do so;
your safety, or the safety of others in the community, is at risk; or
Lion is required or permitted by law to do so.
If Lion provides your personal information to a third party, Lion generally requires the third party to protect your personal information in the same way Lion does.
Is my personal information secure?
