Blue Badge Insurance Australia Pty Ltd (BBIA) and Blue Badge Independent Living Pty Ltd (BBIL) are committed to handling your personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and the Australian Privacy Principles.
We collect your personal information to:

- To manage any existing BBIL products;
- Administer your membership and the insurances that you select;
- Calculate and collect any premiums and any associated fees; and

We collect your personal information directly from you and, in some cases, from other people or organisations. If we ask for your personal information and you don’t give it to us, we may not be able to provide you with any, some, or all of the benefits of our products and services.
We may provide your personal information to our associated entities and from time to time, we will use your contact details to send you direct marketing communications including offers, updates and newsletters that are relevant to your membership and any BBIA or BBIL products that you may hold.
