The Australian Stock Horse Society Limited (the Society) is required to comply with the Privacy Act 1988 and the National Privacy Principles in collecting, using, disclosing and disposing of Members' personal information.
Personal information is any information that can be used to identify a person. The types of information the Society collects include Members' names, addresses and other contact details and stud information.
The purposes for which the Society collects such information are as follows:
In completing and returning to the Society any request by the Society for information relating to the Member, a Member will be considered to have consented to the collection of the information and to disclosure of the information for the purposes outlined above. If Members do not consent to such disclosure, formal notice in writing should be given to the Society. In this event, the Society will only use a Member's personal information for the purpose of contacting the member, and any such information will not be disclosed to Branches or Management.

|Buying or Selling||Transfer Application|
|Multiple New Owners||Syndicate Transfer|
|Lease of a Horse||Lease Notification|
|Embryo Transfer||Embryo Transfer Notification|
|Lost, Misplaced, Whereabouts Unknown, Destroyed||Re-Issue of Registration Papers|
For CONTINUITY OF REGISTRATION, the change of Registered Owner must be completed on Society records. To ensure the transfer is finalised, we provide the following important points:
SALE AGREEMENT in writing prior to purchase, listing the terms and conditions of sale, all parties to sign. Members may seek assistance from a legal advisor to form an agreement.
SIGNED TRANSFER - The Nominee for the Last Registered Owner of the horse must sign the Transfer Application and return it to the Society once sale obligations are finalised (cleared payment for purchase). If a horse is purchased by multiple members, a Syndicate Transfer Application is required.
CERTIFICATE - The vendor must return the horse’s original Certificate of Registration to the Society with the signed Transfer Application.
FINANCIAL MEMBER - The New Owner must be a Financial Member of the Society. Transfers will not be affected to unfinancial or non-members of the Society.
TRANSFER FEE - Payment of the transfer fee (Australian Dollars) is an agreement between the vendor and purchaser. If payment is not received from the Vendor, it will be assumed the purchaser will pay the fee.
Once the signed Transfer Application is received, the horse’s registration will be transferred from the vendor’s membership and held until such times as the transfer to the new owner is finalised. When finalised, the Certificate of Registration will be released to the New Owner.
