Privacy policy

This statement explains how Marine Rescue NSW (MRNSW) collects and uses information from users of this website.

Personal information solicited on MRNSW’s website is treated in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and MRNSW’s privacy policy.

When you look at this website, MRNSW’s web server makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes – the user’s server address, the date and time of visit to the site, pages accessed and documents downloaded. This site usage information is used to assist us in making a more effective website for our users.

Web pages which contain CGI scripts (such as forms that can be submitted, page counters etc.) will record your IP address, time of visit, and CGI function used. This information is only gathered for diagnostic and evaluation purposes.

MRNSW will make no attempt to identify users or their browsing activities or disclose any information gathered except where is required by law. In the unlikely event of a criminal investigation, a law enforcement agency may lawfully seek access to our Internet service provider’s logs.

MRNSW will only record your e-mail address if you send us a message or form submission. It will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and will not be added to a mailing list, unless you have requested this to occur.

Where an authorised officer with access privileges accesses the membership database through the website, or a member views their own membership record online (when this function is available) (in either case using their unique password), MRNSW will record the username, the date and time of access, the queries performed and any changes made.

This site contains links to other sites. MRNSW is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
