Privacy Policy

The Victorian Information Privacy Act outlines ten Information Privacy Principles as the practical core of the Information Privacy Act. With limited exceptions, all Victorian government organisations, including local councils, must comply with these principles or have an approved code of practice. Non-government organisations that work for government under contract may also be covered, depending on the contract. The Information Privacy Act came into full effect on 1 September 2002.

The Victorian Bands’ League respects the privacy of its member bands and registered players. As a result, the VBL has adopted an Information Privacy Statement that outlines the way in which it will collect and use personal information.

To assist member bands, the VBL has also developed a model privacy statement which bands can use to develop their own privacy statement.

If you have any questions about how the VBL manages information privacy, please write to:
