Terms and Policies


The Man Cave empowers boys to become great men by providing them and their communities with impactful programs, role models and resources. The goals of our programs are to:

1. equip boys with the skills, strategies and support to take charge of improving their own mental health;

2. help boys reshape those aspects of traditional masculinity that lead to emotional and physical violence;

3. encourage boys to eliminate unhealthy attitudes and behaviours that lead to violence against women;

4. support boys to foster and value meaningful relationships across all genders and generations;

5. support boys to improve their communities and the societies in which they live.

The Man Cave is committed to being a child safe organisation. We have zero tolerance for child abuse. To the best of our ability and resources, we are committed to embedding a culture of child safety into our practices and processes to ensure that our work prioritises the safety of children.

The Man Cave embraces diversity and inclusion. All children, regardless of their gender, race, religious beliefs, age, disability, sexual orientation, family background and social background, have equal rights to protection from abuse.

The Man Cave is committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and understands there is no safety for Aboriginal children without cultural safety.

The Man Cave is also committed to the safety of children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and the safety of children with a disability. In addition, The Man Cave acknowledges the particular vulnerability of other children to be safe, including children who live in out of home care, and children who identify as LGBTIQ+.

All employees, volunteers, key contractors and other representatives of The Man Cave have a responsibility to understand their role in creating and maintaining a child safe culture in the workplace and the wider community. Preventing, detecting and reporting any suspicions of child abuse to the relevant authorities is fundamental to creating child safety. The Man Cave has a Child Safety & Wellbeing Policy, as well as a Code of Conduct that includes Child Safety provisions, to which our Board, employees, volunteers and key contractors are committed.

We may also collect Person Information from you when you fill in an application form, communicate with us, visit our website, provide us with feedback, complete online surveys or participate in competitions. We may collect Personal Information about you that you have provided to our business partners or from third parties and in respect of which you have given the third party permission to share with us. 

If you use a pseudonym when dealing with us or you do not provide identifiable information to us, we may not be able to provide you with any or all of our services as requested. If you wish to remain anonymous when you use our website do not sign into it or provide any information that might identify you. 

We require individuals to provide accurate, up-to-date and complete Personal Information at the time it is collected. 

4 What do we do with your Personal Information?

We use, process and disclose your Personal Information for the purposes for which the information is collected, or for a directly related purpose, including (but not limited to):

  • providing our website, products and services to you;
  • administering, protecting, improving or optimising our website, products and services (including performing data analytics, conducting research and for advertising and marketing purposes);
  • billing you for purchasing or using our website, products and services;

  • any use which is required or authorised by a relevant Privacy Law.

5 How we protect your information

We may hold your Personal Information in either electronic or hard copy. We take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information from misuse, interference and loss, as well as unauthorised access, modification or disclosure and we use a number of physical, administrative, personnel and technical measures to protect your Personal Information. For example, we:

  1. use password-protected electronic folders in which your personal information is stored;
  2. keep private passwords to electronic folders that contain your personal information and only provide access to staff at The Man Cave who require your information to perform their role or provide a service to you;
  3. avoid printing or storing your personal information in hard copy;
  4. have internal policies which require any of The Man Cave’s staff members if they reasonably believe that your personal information has been unreasonably or unnecessarily disclosed to someone who is not authorised to receive it, must report it to the General Manager Operations & HR as soon as reasonably possible; and
  5. ensure that if an unauthorised disclosure of personal information is likely to result in serious harm to one or more individuals, the General Manager Operations & HR will report it to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) and the affected individuals in compliance with the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017.

However, we cannot guarantee the security of any Personal Information transmitted over the internet and therefore you disclose information to us at your own risk. We will not be liable for any unauthorised access, modification or disclosure, or misuse of your Personal Information.

6 Disclosure of Personal Information

We may disclose your Personal Information to:

  • third-parties we ordinarily engage from time to time to perform functions on our behalf for the above purposes (eg: our Customer Relationship Management software, which is highly secure);
  • any person or entity to whom you have expressly consented to us disclosing your Personal Information to;
  • our external business advisors, auditors, lawyers, insurers and financiers; and 
  • any person or entity to whom we are required or authorised to disclose your Personal Information to in accordance with the relevant Privacy Law.

7 Access and management

Subject to some exceptions provided by the relevant Privacy Law, you may request access to your Personal Information in our Customer Relationship Management database, or seek correction of it, by contacting us. See ‘Section ‎10: Contact information’. Should we decline you access to your Personal Information, we will provide a written explanation setting out our reasons for doing so. 

If you believe that we hold Personal Information about you that is not accurate, complete or up-to-date then you may request that your Personal Information be amended.  We will respond to your request to correct your Personal Information within a reasonable timeframe and you will not be charged a fee for correcting your Personal Information.  

If we no longer need your Personal Information for any of the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by the relevant Privacy Law, we will take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to destroy your Personal Information or to de-identify it.

8 Direct marketing 

Where we:

  • have your express consent (which you may withdraw at any time by contacting us);
  • have a legal basis; or
  • are otherwise permitted by relevant Privacy Law, 

we may use and process your Personal Information to send you information about products and services we believe are suited to you and your interests or we may invite you to attend special events.

At any time you may opt out of receiving direct marketing communications from us. Unless you opt out, your consent to receive direct marketing communications from us and to the handling of your Personal Information as detailed above, will continue. You can opt out by following the unsubscribe instructions included in the relevant marketing communication, or by contacting us in writing at hello@themancave.life.

As at the date of this Privacy Policy, such third-party recipients are located in Spain (Recipients). Specifically, the Spain-based party is Typeform, the online survey and form building platform we use on our website and elsewhere. The Man Cave is committed to ensuring that all its partners and suppliers that are bound by the European General Data Protection Regulation have a strong commitment to compliance. Typeform’s commitments are outlined here.

When entering into a transaction with us you expressly and freely consent to your Personal Information being disclosed or transferred to such Recipients. We will take steps reasonably necessary to ensure your Personal Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We use reasonable endeavours to ensure that each Recipient receiving your Personal Information is bound by the relevant Privacy Law.
