Internet Users

If you access our Website we may collect additional personal information about you including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, domain name, type of operating system, type of browser and your general area of location.  Also, our Website uses cookies.  The main purpose of cookies is to identify users and to prepare customised web pages.  Cookies do not identify you personally, but they may link back to a database record about you.  We use cookies to monitor usage of our Website and to create a personal record of when you visit our Website and what pages you view, so that we may serve you more effectively.


In the interest of safety for our members, guests and visitors, DYRSL has installed a network of CCTV cameras. The cameras are not intrusive and are carefully managed and supervised.  Relevant footage is provided to the Police or regulatory bodies such as Liquor & Gaming NSW or the Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority upon specific requests and is subject to a procedure where the request is identified.

Facial recognition technology

DYRSL has introduced facial recognition technology to consolidate the Club’s security systems and to assist the Club in identifying individuals who are suspended, banned, self-excluded or a person of concern from our premises.

There are designated security cameras throughout the DYRSL premises which use facial recognition technology to collect and analyse faceprints of selected individuals.  A faceprint is a digitally recorded representation of an individual’s face based on the location, size and shape of an individual’s facial features.

When you are at our premises, the Club’s designated security cameras will capture a photo of your face and then generate a faceprint of your face based on that photo.  Your faceprint will then be compared against a database maintained by DYRSL that contains the faceprints of individuals who have been suspended, banned or self-excluded from our premises.  Faceprints of any such suspended, banned or self-excluded individual from the Club’s premises are initially collected through photographic images the Club holds of that individual (for example, from that individual’s membership card).  If your faceprint matches the faceprint of any individual in this database, our staff will be alerted and you will be removed from our premises.  Your faceprint will be deleted after 30 days if it does not match the faceprint of any person whose faceprint is contained in the database.

DYRSL stores the faceprints of those persons who have been suspended, banned, self-excluded or are a person of concern from our premises for such time until the suspension, ban or self-exclusion ceases, or are no longer a person of concern.

Using your personal information to contact you

DYRSL will not send you any unsolicited commercial messages or material that does not relate to DYRSL and its promotions, entertainment or service offerings.

We may use information to determine your likes and interests to send you information about our entertainment programs, promotions or dining offers. This information will be determined from the information you might have provided, from your activity history or from your browsing history. You always have the option of opting out of receiving such information.

Personal Information and Security

DYRSL is committed to keeping your personal information secure, and we will take reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from unauthorised access, loss, release, misuse or alteration.


Your personal information may be stored in hard copy documents, but is generally stored electronically on DYRSL’s software or systems.

DYRSL maintains physical security over its paper and electronic data stores, such as locks and security systems. We also use computer and network security technologies such as firewalls, intrusion prevention software, antivirus software, external email filtering and passwords to control and restrict access to authorised staff for approved purposes, and to secure personal information from unauthorised access, modification, disclosure, misuse and loss.

We are required by law to keep some types of information for certain periods of time.  If we no longer require your personal information, we will generally destroy or de-identify it.  We reserve the right to retain information for longer than the minimum period required under any applicable law if we consider that it is appropriate, but we will hold it in accordance with this policy.

If the Club receives personal information about you which it did not request and which it does not reasonably require, we may take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify this information where appropriate.

Whilst DYRSL takes all reasonable steps to secure your personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorised access, you acknowledge that all activities in which you intentionally or unintentionally supply information to DYRSL carries an inherent risk of loss of, misuse of, or unauthorised access to such information.

Overseas disclosure

Generally, the Club will not disclose personal information to overseas recipients except with your consent or where we are required or authorised to do so by law.  As far as the Club is aware none of its contractors transmit or store data overseas.


If a data breach or suspected data breach occurs, we will undertake a prompt investigation, which will include an assessment of whether the incident is likely to result in serious harm to any individuals.  In such a situation we will comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act which may require notification to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) and affected individuals.  Please contact us if you have reason to believe or suspect that a data breach may have occurred, so that we can investigate and, if necessary, undertake appropriate containment, risk-mitigation and notification activities as required.


If you need to access your personal information that is held by DYRSL, you will be required to make a request to the Club in writing, which can be given physically to Club reception, sent by mail to the Club or by email to We will provide you with access to the information requested within a reasonable period after the request is made, not exceeding 30 days. We may charge you a reasonable fee for processing your request.  We may decline a request for access to your personal information if the Privacy Act prohibits it or does not require us to provide access.

DYRSL encourages its members to update or correct personal information, so that the information is accurate and up-to-date. You may lodge a request to correct personal information that we hold about you if you believe it is inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date, irrelevant or misleading, in which case please contact the Club.
