Privacy Policy

This privacy policy applies to personal information collected by the NSW Minerals Council.

We usually collect personal information about individuals directly from those people or their authorised representative. We sometimes collect personal information from a third party, but only if the individual has consented to such collection or would reasonably expect us to collect their personal information in this way.

When you look at our website, we make a record of your visit and log the following information for statistical purposes:

  • your server address
  • the date and time of your visit to the site
  • the pages accessed and documents you downloaded
  • the site that directed or referred you to us eg. a search engine
  • the type of browser you used
  • your top-level domain name (eg. .com, .au, .gov, .uk etc)

No attempt will be made to identify you or your browsing activity, except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may produce a warrant to inspect our website server logs.

Your details will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided them and will never be added to any mailing list (other than ours).  We will not use or disclose them to anyone without your consent.

We use a variety of physical and electronic security measures, including restricting physical access to our offices, and firewalls and secure databases to keep personal information secure from misuse, loss or unauthorised use or disclosure. The internet is not a secure environment. If you use the internet to send us any information, including your email address, it is sent at your own risk.

Our Privacy Policy and our approach to privacy adhere to the Australian Government’s National Privacy Principles contained within the Privacy Act. Our Privacy Policy is updated as necessary and the latest version always available on our site. You can obtain more information on Australia’s approach to privacy from the Office of the Information Commissioner.

If you have a question about our Privacy Policy or would like to gain access to the information we might hold about you, please contact us.
