The Social Media Database

Privacy Policy

The Social Media Database Pty Ltd is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its employees, members, sponsors and other stakeholders. We value the trust of those we deal with, and of the public, and recognise that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat the information that you choose to share with us.

During the course of our carrying out our business operations, we gather personal information. Anyone from whom we collect such information should expect that it will be carefully protected. Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual.


Business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories, are not considered personal information.

Where an individual uses his or her home contact information as business contact information as well, we consider that the contact information provided is business contact information, and is not therefore subject to protection as personal information.

Use of Information

The information we collect will only be used from time to time, if ever, to ensure that we can advise individuals of news and upcoming events that may be of interest to them. In addition, we may use our contact/client lists to conduct surveys and gather member feedback. The Social Media Database does not hold onto credit card information. In the case of subscription sales, these transactions are handled by Paypal. Individual personal information is never disclosed, shared with a third party or used for any purposes other than described above.

Privacy Practices

Personal information gathered by our organisation is kept in confidence. Our personnel are authorised to access personal information based only on their need to deal with the information for the reason(s) for which it was obtained. We also take measures to ensure that the integrity of this information is maintained and that it is protected from loss or destruction.

We collect, use and disclose personal information only for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in light of the circumstances. At any time, individuals whose information we maintain can request to be removed from our list(s) and/or system(s) with the expectation that their information will be removed and our organisation will never contact them.
