Use and disclosure
Where you voluntarily provide personal information (e.g. through online forms, email requests etc), we may hold your personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act 1993.
The Privacy Act 1993 regulates us through the Information Privacy Principles as to how we collect, use, hold, disclose, access, correct, manage and dispose of your personal information.

We will not disclose your e-mail address without your consent. You will always have the option to opt in or opt out of services at any stage.
We will not share your personal information with others unless this is necessary for the purpose for which you gave us the information. Occasionally the law may require us to disclose it (for instance to investigate a criminal offence), or there may be safety reasons for disclosing it.
When you visit our site we collect statistical information about your visit. This information is used to help us improve the site and for no other purpose. Information about your visit is combined with the data from all our visitors and is anonymous.
