Notice regarding unsolicited mail
AASW national office has received several complaints from members regarding unwanted mail received from a member of the AASW. We sincerely regret the distress that this has caused. As advised in the e-bulletin (5 September 2012), under the Corporations Act, any member may apply for a copy of the members database which includes the mailing address of all members. The applicant may be required to pay a fee and as long as the request is for a proper purpose then the company holding that list (in this case the AASW) must comply with that request. We have a legal obligation to do so.
If you have received mail that is unwanted, you can bin the mail, and, if the sender has provided contact details, you can request no further correspondence from him or her. Members may also consider changing their mail contact on the AASW database to a work or mail box so that personal details such as home addresses are not available on the database. Members can change their details online or by contacting the Membership team on 1800 630 124.
The AASW is committed to protecting your privacy to the maximum extent possible under Australian Law. No email addresses have been provided and any use of email lists generated in the course of AASW business must only be used for the business of the company.
