Code of Conduct
The SAFC has zero tolerance for unsafe workplace behaviours, including discrimination, harassment and bullying. This includes all events and activities that we manage and support as well as all projects and other initiatives we fund.
The SAFC has adopted the Australian Screen Industry Code of Practice – Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Harassment and Bullying Policy, a best practice guide for employers in the Australian screen industry. It was developed as a joint initiative between Screen Producers Australia (SPA), the body representing employers in the screen industry, and Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance (MEAA), as the body representing employees.
The Code of Practice was prepared to support the prevention of workplace discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and bullying in the screen industry. It affirms the industry’s commitment to providing safe, respectful, inclusive and flexible workplaces.
Although described as a voluntary industry code of practice, SAFC encourages all screen industry practitioners to adopt and follow it. This code is referenced in the SAFC Terms of Trade.
You agree to comply with the SAFC Terms of Trade, the Code of Practice and the template Policy Document published in conjunction with the Code of Practice (as if you were an employee for the purposes of the template Policy Document) in your activities in and relating to SAFC events. If you fail to do so SAFC may deny you access or remove you from the event or any other event organised by the SAFC.
For more information, to view the Code of Practice, template Policy Document and guidelines go to screensafety.com.au

We ask all our online community members to interact with us, our staff, and each other with respect and courtesy, in line with these Conditions of Use.
When engaging with any SAFC online service, including official SAFC accounts established on third-party social media sites, you understand and agree that the SAFC may hide or remove your contribution at its discretion, and/or if the SAFC considers it to be:
- defamatory, or otherwise unlawful or violating laws regarding harassment, discrimination, racial vilification, privacy or contempt;

- a personal attack on a member or members of SAFC staff, persons engaged by the SAFC to provide services, or other online community members;

- impersonating someone else and/or posting on behalf of a suspended member.
If you breach these Conditions of Use, the SAFC may block your account or contributions.
You accept full responsibility for any contribution by you to the SAFC’s social media sites. You warrant that any such contribution by you will not breach these conditions or the right(s) of any party. If your contribution does breach these Conditions of Use or the right of any party, you agree to indemnify the SAFC against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damage or expense (including legal fees) asserted by any party (including yourself) arising out of a breach of these Conditions of Use.
Additionally, when accessing or participating in an SAFC-managed space on a third party platform, such as channels, pages or feeds hosted on an external site, you agree to comply with the Terms and Conditions specified by that third party platform.

Pursuant to the provisions of Section 9(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 1991 (the Act), the following details are provided as part of the Information Statement of the SAFC which is an agency as defined under Section 4(1)(f) of the Act.

Whilst the SAFC will engage with key stakeholders in respect of specific programs, there are no formal arrangements which enable members of the public to participate in the formulation of the department’s policies and the exercises of the agency’s functions. From time to time consultation is undertaken when it is deemed appropriate to engage the public in the formulation of specific policy.

SAFC only collects personal information that is necessary for it to perform its functions. When you visit the SAFC website (www.safilm.com.au), you do so anonymously. As most websites do, SAFC tracks usage patterns on its website on an anonymous aggregate basis for statistical purposes. Your identity cannot reasonably be ascertained from this information. Each time you visit the SAFC website a web server makes a record of your visit. Specifically, it records your:
- IP address (the Internet address of your computer);
- The date and time of your visit to the site;
- The pages accessed and documents downloaded;
- The previous site visited; and
- The type of browser used.
SAFC does not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable, including your e-mail address. The only other information automatically provided to SAFC is the type of operating system you are using, which is information supplied by your browser. Parts of the SAFC website may invite you to voluntarily supply personal information such as your e-mail address in order to join a mailing list, or to complete a survey downloadable from the site. Unless required by law, SAFC will not use personal information submitted via its website for any other purpose, and will not disclose such information to a third party, without your consent.
Using and disclosing your personal information
SAFC respects your privacy. Any personal information which it collects about you will be used and disclosed by SAFC so that it can provide you with the services that you have requested, or otherwise to enable it to carry out its functions.
Access to your personal information
In most cases, you can gain access to personal information that SAFC holds about you. SAFC will handle requests for access to your personal information in accordance with the South Australian Information Privacy Principles 2017 (IPPS).
SAFC will deal with all requests for access to personal information as quickly as possible. Requests for a large amount of information, or information that is not currently in use, may require further time before a response can be given.
In some cases, and consistent with the NPPs, SAFC may refuse to give you access to personal information it holds about you. If SAFC refuses to give you access it will provide you with reasons for its refusal. Generally, if you request SAFC to do so it will amend any personal information about you held by it which is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.
If SAFC disagrees with your view about the accuracy, completeness or currency of a record of your personal information held by it, and you ask SAFC to associate with that record a statement that you have a contrary view, SAFC will take reasonable steps to do so.
Please contact SAFC if you would like more information about the way SAFC manages personal information that it holds about you, or are concerned that SAFC may have breached your privacy and wish to make a complaint.
