This policy protects your personal information according to Australian privacy laws. We will only collect personal information that you voluntarily submit.
Use of information
Your personal information will only be used for the purpose that you submit it, e.g. to subscribe to a newsletter, participate in the forums, or to submit news stories, photographs, resources or general enquiries.
Correspondence sent to and from the website may contain personal information and is stored securely for archival and backup purposes.
Personal information may be disclosed where we believe doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring, or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with our rights or property, users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.
We may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure.
Unfortunately no data transmission on the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. However we take all reasonable steps to ensure the security of personal information you submit, and update our security measures in light of current technologies.
Our employees and the contractors who provide services related to our information systems are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us. We will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information.

They customise websites to users’ needs and make interactions between users and websites faster and easier, e.g. by remembering a user’s preferences or registration details for a future visit.
