Tackle World is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act). The APPs are designed to protect the confidentiality of information and the privacy of individuals by regulating the way personal information is collected, used, disclosed and managed. Personal information is, generally speaking, information or an opinion relating to an identified, or reasonably identifiable, individual. This policy explains the types of personal information that we may collect and hold, how that information is used and with whom the information is shared. It also sets out how you can contact us if you have any queries or concerns about this information.

Personal information may be collected by way of forms filled out by individuals (including via online forms), emails, telephone conversations, online user-generated content and market research, face-to-face meetings and interviews.

Every effort has been made to ensure the stock is available until sold out. Pictures are for illustration purposes and not all stock is carried by all stores. Start and end dates of promotions vary from store to store.

  • You promise that any individual persons depicted in the photographs or videos (except outdoor crowd scenes) have given you permission to use their image. We ask for this promise because we want you to be respectful of the persons you photograph and/or video and considerate of their sensitivities concerning the use of their image.

Tackle World assumes no liability to third parties for unverified ownership rights claimed by entrants.
  • If after announcing the winners Tackle World determines that a winner has misrepresented, misstated, or mischaracterized his or her submission in any way, or is not the rightful owner of the submission, the submission may be disqualified from the Contest, and any prizes or privileges received by the entrant as a result of winning this contest may be rescinded. Any determinations made by Tackle World in withdrawing and disqualifying any submission will be final.
