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.
We use Google Search Console to monitor the health of the website. No personal information that would identify you is recorded by this.
We also use Google Analytics to monitor how visitors interact with the website. This is used to analyse how the website is performing for visitors and helps us to improve the functionality and experience of the website for visitors.

We may use and disclose your sensitive information for the primary purpose of collection, or for reasonably expected secondary purposes which are directly related to the primary purpose, or for purposes to which you have consented and in other circumstances authorised by the Privacy Act (e.g. where required or authorised by law to be disclosed, or where disclosure is necessary to prevent a threat to life, health or safety).
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.

How we protect your data
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to any of our websites; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. When possible, encryption is used, both in transit and storage. Access controls within the organisation limit who may access information.
What data breach procedures we have in place
Our host servers are located in Australia and have inbuilt security with continuous monitoring through all levels to the website code itself. We also employ an extra level of security software on the website’s software platform that monitors and blocks unusual activity, and notifies the website managers of any threats.
Secure and encrypted passwords are used that satisfy best practice for all aspects of our online and hardware based systems.
What third parties we receive data from
We receive information for activity on the website from our security software, from our website platform when users login, and from communications through article comments and forms.
We receive data from Google and Bing for analytics and website performance on search queries. This data does not identify individuals, only the device you they are using and the geolocation of the device are recorded.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
There are no automated actions set up for a user of our website, with the exception of instances where there has been failed login attempts, and access has been granted or denied, or when a form is submitted by a visitor on our website and we receive a notification.
