We understand your decision to provide personal information is an act of trust and we take our responsibility for privacy seriously.
We collect and store data in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988.
We will not share your contact details with any other organisation without your permission. If you sign up to get updates from us, future emails to you will include an option to unsubscribe.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The information we collect includes but is not limited to: the IP address of the computer you accessed the site from, the pages you have read and, if you choose to give it to us, your email address, state, postcode and phone number.
We use this data to contact you about the issues we are working on (if you subscribe for updates) and to understand how people are using our website so that we can improve it in future.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
If at any time you want to be removed completely from our database, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
