Very briefly, this web site is operated in compliance with the Australian
Government's Information Privacy Principles which are outlined at
and we try to comply with these principles at all times.
Our web site collects the following information from our online visitors:
a record of each visit that logs a visitor's IP address, the date and time
of their visit, the pages accessed and/or documents downloaded, their country
of origin and the type of browser used (ie this is the same type of information
routinely collected by all web servers around the world). No attempt is or
will be made to identify individual users or their browsing activities except
in the unlikely event of an investigation where a law enforcement agency
exercises a warrant to inspect our service provider's logs. We analyse the
information collected by our web server at the end of each month purely to
determine our web site's overall usage statistics.
We retain the e-mail addresses of people who send emails to us through this
web site for the simple purpose of sending them a response. These email addresses
are stored in a secure area of our office network (ie not on the website)
and are not used for any other purpose. Nor will they be disclosed to any
third party without the consent of the person who originally emailed us.
People who submit email addresses, web sites or other information for linking
on this web site are agreeing to have them published on our web site by doing
so. We will, however, remove or modify any submitted email address, web site
URL or other supplied information on request.
Visitors should also note that this web site contains links to a number of
other web sites that are included on the basis of containing content related
to our own site's operations and/or as a service to our online visitors.

We also use anti-spam filtering on our emails and we report any Australian
who spams us to the proper authorities on receipt of their spam.
Again, we encourage our visitors to do likewise in countries which have
equivalent legislation to Australia. Or to request their legislators enact
similar laws in countries which don't yet have anti-spam laws; or toughen
existing laws up to Australian standards where existing laws are weak.
If you subscribe to any newsletter or similar online update service through
our website, you may unsubscribe from that service at any time and your email
address will be erased from our files the moment you do.
In addition, the email addresses of subscribers to any of our online updating
services will not be shared with anyone else (in accordance with our Privacy
Policy - see further above).
The information presented on our web site is the result of personal, original
effort by us and we retain the copyright on all information and graphical
materials shown here (except those which are licensed and/or used with the
permission of the copyright owner). You can only reproduce materials shown
on this website if you receive our written permission to do so.
We try to keep our web site current at all times but there may be occasions
when some part of it is out of date because real life circumstances change
faster than our web site can accurately reflect them.
Even so, we appreciate that our visitors rely on our web site to be 100%
accurate at all times. So we'll happily remedy any inaccurate information
as soon as we're made aware of it.
If you believe you've discovered an error we should correct or update, please
email us about it.
