Privacy Policy

(The more detailed version)

Collection of information

Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address or information about what you like and do not like. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not.

The Cheaper Petrol Party collects three types of information.

The first type is anonymous information.
For instance, we may collect information to tell us that five thousand people visited this Privacy Policy page today, but we do not know their names, their date of birth or their address - they are 'anonymous' to us.
Another example of collecting anonymous information is when members and visitors are invited to respond to surveys on the web site. The surveys may ask you for demographic information such as your age, gender and postcode. This information is collected for research purposes, is used in the aggregate, and remains anonymous.

The second type of information that we collect is personal information when you become a member.
The Cheaper Petrol Party will collect personal information when you provide it to us, that lets us know the specifics of who you are, such as your name, screen name, email address, and postal address. With this information, we can provide a variety of personalized and enhanced services that are not available to non-members.
You can choose not to receive such information when you are undertaking registration on our web site. We hope that you will find it beneficial to provide individually identifiable information about yourself to us because it will make our services more valuable to you.

The third type of information that we collect is specifically asking for personal information about you when you sign up to become a party member.
In that case certain information is required by law, such as your name, gender, address, date of birth and this may be forwarded to the Australian Federal or State Electoral Commissions. This information may also be used to inform you of events which are available only to party members. You can choose not to receive such information when you are undertaking registration on our web site.
We may also ask about your views, but it is entirely your choice whether to respond.

How much of your personal information that you choose to disclose to The Cheaper Petrol Party is completely up to you. The only way we know something about you personally is publicly available information such as from a telephone directory, or if you provide it to us, for example when you take part in a discussion forum or become a registered member.

Use of anonymous information

The Cheaper Petrol Party automatically gathers anonymous information to monitor the use of our site like the numbers and frequency of visitors to its pages. We only use such data in the aggregate.
This collective data helps us determine how much our members and visitors use parts of the site, so we can improve it to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many users as possible.
The Cheaper Petrol Party may publish, for example on our site, or provide this anonymous aggregate data, like the results of our polls, to other people.

Use of personal information

The Cheaper Petrol Party will only use the personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it.
From time to time, we may use personal information to inform our members about items that we think may be of interest to them. We may also use this from time to time to update our database or to ask for donations.

You can let us know at any time if you no longer wish to receive this material.

Cookies

The Cheaper Petrol Party site currently uses cookies.
It records information necessary for certain web site functions, such as remembering your preferences or settings and for interactive features such as forums and voting. These cookies collect only enough information to enable web site functions. If you don't want to accept cookies, you can set your browser and/or firewall to block them. You will still be able to access most content but some interactive features, like voting, may be unavailable.

Disclosure

There will be occasions where it will be necessary for The Cheaper Petrol Party to disclose your personal information to third parties. We may be required by law to disclose the information.
For example, information may be disclosed to a court in response to a subpoena or to a Government agency such as the Australian Taxation Office, or the Australian Electoral Commission for those people who choose to become a party member of The Cheaper Petrol Party.

We may also disclose personal information where the individual consents to us doing so. That consent may be written, verbal or implied from your conduct.

We may sometimes need to disclose your personal information to others.
It is generally our policy not to disclose information to external organisations, however, examples of the types of organisations we may need to disclose information to in the course of providing a product or service are: insurers and financiers; a person outside the Cheaper Petrol Party, who is contracted to us to provide a particular service on our behalf, such as mailing houses for bulk mailing of letters and notices; printers for marketing material; and accountants, lawyers and other service providers.
Those contracted parties are not authorised by us to use personal information for anything other than the purpose for which we supplied that information to them.

No sale of personal information

Under no circumstances will The Cheaper Petrol Party sell or receive payment for disclosing your personal information.
