What personal information Scentre generally collects and why:
Scentre collects information from customers in a number of different ways. These include the following:
- In connection with competitions or signing up to email or mobile newsletters (either while in one of our shopping centres ("in-centre") or online), customers provide us with their contact details. Your name and address are automatically entered into Scentre’s database when you enter competitions. Scentre collects these details to contact competition winners, and to inform customers about events, activities and promotions, both in centre and as part of Scentre's other activities. Customers have the option to opt out from receiving this information.
- When customers hire mobility aids or other equipment from Scentre, or apply to use certain restricted spaces at Scentre managed centres, customers provide Scentre with certain information, including contact details. Scentre collects this information to ensure that there is a record of the hirer and to enable customers to be informed about upcoming events, activities and promotions, both in centre and as part of Scentre's other activities.
- When customers attend Scentre-managed shopping centres and car parks under video and camera surveillance. When entering Westfield shopping centres and car parks, customers' personal information, car licence plate details and images may be collected by Scentre, and Scentre may also collect customers' personal information and images from third parties (for example, the police or retailers) in connection with the management and security of Scentre-managed shopping centres. This information may be used by Scentre in connection with the management and security of the Scentre shopping centres. This information may be provided to law enforcement and government bodies, Scentre staff and subcontractors, third parties who provide Scentre with services from time to time, insurers and retailers for those purposes.
- When customers park in Scentre-managed car parks with a ticketless parking system or car locator functionality, customers consent to provide us with their car licence plate details and, in some circumstances, other information including name, email address and telephone number. These details are used for measuring and analysing car parking dwell times and shopper behaviour in order to improve our centres, for the purposes of managing car parking at the centre, marketing purposes and also to assist customers to locate their cars including via online and mobile applications.
- When customers use mobile applications developed by Scentre, or logon to Wi-Fi provided in Westfield shopping centres or third party applications utilising Scentre’s infrastructure (including Bluetooth beacon networks), customers provide Scentre with certain information including their contact details.
