Tabcorp is bound by and complies with the Privacy Act, the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) and (where relevant) thePrivacy (Credit Reporting) Code 2014 ( Privacy (Credit Reporting) Code).

You can contact our Privacy Officer to discuss any privacy related queries you may have - email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone +61 3 9868 2100.

This depends on your dealings with us, and the requirements of the laws, regulations, licence conditions and betting rules applying to us, e.g. under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (Cth) (AML/CTF Act). We note that this list is not exhaustive.
