We collect personal information primarily to enable us to provide members with our services. AMS may also use the information for marketing to you or for any other purpose permitted under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
You don’t need to identify yourself when you deal with us (e.g. to find out more about memberships), however in certain situations we will only deal with individuals who have identified themselves to us.
When a membership or product is purchased personal information will be requested in order to provide the requested service or product, provide updated information, and advise of other AMS products, which may be of interest. You are not obligated to provide personal information, however failure to do so may result in AMS being unable to provide services or products to you. Personal information is collected directly from members or potential future members when they personally complete and submit an application form to become a member of AMS. This can be done in person at the studio, online via our website or on the phone via one of our AMS staff members.
