Cross-border disclosure

Our preference is to use third party service providers who are based in Australia, however we may use overseas service providers to process your personal information if we reasonably believe that the overseas entity provides the same or similar protection for your personal information as that required under applicable Laws, or you have otherwise consented to us disclosing your personal information to the overseas entity.


The security of your personal information is important to us and we use all reasonable measures to prevent unauthorised access to or disclosure of your personal information.

While we take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is protected from misuse, interference or loss, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. If a data breach occurs, and there is a real risk of harm to you as a result of such breach, we will notify you as soon as possible.

Third party links

You may from time to time access sites of third parties via links provided on Basketball613. Whilst we may request that such third parties treat your personal information with the same level of care and to the same standard as we do, we shall not be liable if any third party you share your personal information with fails to do so.

You should make your own investigations as to whether the third party you are sharing your personal information with will handle and use such personal information in accordance with the Law, or otherwise to an acceptable standard.


When we no longer need your personal information for a permitted purpose and we are not required to keep it to comply with any laws, we will take reasonable steps to destroy your personal information or to ensure that the information is de-identified.

Your rights

As a member of Basketball613 you are bound by these Terms and Conditions:

Personal injury

As you are aware, basketball can be a dangerous sport and there is a possibility that you could be injured anytime while playing. We know you acknowledge this risk, but we don’t want to see you substantially worse off because of it.

Basketball613 currently has an insurance policy that covers all of its players for injury when playing at any of our games (we make no guarantees that we will keep this policy current going forward though). However, if you would like to make a claim you will have to pay the excess involved with any claim you make. Please request in writing to [email protected] if you would like to make a claim.

As such, if you don’t have personal insurance policies that cover you for injury during our games or you are not willing to pay the excess under Basketball613’s policy (to the extent that this is maintained), you would be playing with us at your own risk and we take your continuing play as an acknowledgment and agreement of accepting this risk.

Unless we hear from you otherwise, if you continue to play with us, you acknowledge and agree that you may not be covered by an insurance policy at all and you will be liable to pay any excess under our policy (to the extent we maintain a policy) if you want to make a claim.

Damage of equipment at Games Venue

If an entrant is responsible for the breakage of equipment at a Games Venue, we have an insurance policy that can cover the costs however the entrant is responsible and will be required to pay the excess of the claim.

Please read the code of conduct before attending.

We reserve the right to refuse entry to any participant we believe is not acting in accordance with the code of conduct
