Privacy and Legals

ACT Labor is committed to protecting your privacy.

We know how important your privacy is to you. ACT Labor will protect your privacy in accordance with current Australian best practice guidelines and the spirit and intent of the Commonwealth Privacy Act 1988.

In following up any enquiry you have made to us, the content of emails or comments made in feedback may be retained or passed along with appropriate contact details, only where this is the best avenue for answering your questions and providing you with the best possible follow-up.

The information provided will not be used for any other purpose and your name and e-mail address will not be added to a mailing list unless specifically requested by you, in which case that request is confirmed by an e-mail sent to the address provided. Information provided by you as part of a credit card transaction will be handled by a secure server, which should be indicated by your browser.

The information is not held on ALP internet servers and is passed directly to the ALP's credit card transaction service provider in an encrypted form. The information will not be used for any other transaction or purpose or provided to any other third party. Under ACT electoral law, donations over $1,000 must be disclosed. It is for this reason we make provision of personal details mandatory whilst making a donation. All e-mails and newsletters sent via automated mailing lists will clearly identify ACT Labor or its representative as the sender and will include a suitable method for unsubscribing.

Refund: If you have joined the Australian Labor Party in error or decided against it, we will refund the fee that you paid. Members who resign their membership will have their automatic fee charges cancelled immediately.

Information collected: If you log onto the website and read or download information our Internet Service Provider may record your server address, domain name, the date and time of your visit to our site, the pages viewed and the information downloaded. This information is used for statistical and web site development purposes only.

Personal information provided to the ALP and information collected by the ALP will not be disclosed to any other third party except where it is legally required, such as in the investigation of a criminal offence, and in compliance with a search warrant or subpoena. Your details will not be sold or rented to any third party. In the case of credit card transactions, the IP address of the visitor may be recorded although this information will not be used or disclosed except where it is legally required, such as in the investigation of a criminal offence, and in compliance with a search warrant or subpoena.

Personal information provided to the ALP is not stored on the ALP's web servers and access is restricted to it, although you should be aware that unencrypted information whilst in transit via the Internet inherently is not secure. Should you wish to send information to the ALP of critical importance and be assured of high security, please arrange another method of delivery.
