Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy of the Australian Police Journal Limited

Respecting Your Privacy
We are committed to protecting the private information that you provide us. We comply with relevant Australian privacy laws.

The Use of Your Personal Information
The information you provide is collected, stored and used in a manner consistent with, or directly related to, the reason you provided it (ie: to help us manage your subscription).

We will not use your personal information to market any third party product, apart from product advertisements that may appear within issues of the Australian Police Journal (APJ).

We do not sell or rent your information to anyone else.

When we use third party agents (eg: mailing houses or information technology consultants), we insist they must comply with our privacy policy and relevant privacy laws.

Exchanging Your Information
We will only provide your information to other parties if we;

  • are compelled to do so by law (eg: under subpoena); or,
  • have a duty to the public or lawful reason to do so; or,
  • use a third party such as a mailing house or information technology consultant(s) in order to meet our commitment to providing you a service. Such third parties must comply with our privacy policy and relevant privacy laws.

Marketing / Surveys
From time to time we may ask you to complete a survey in order for us to ensure that the APJ remains relevant and interesting. We will not use / provide / sell your information to anyone else to conduct surveys / marketing for any non APJ product.

Looking After Your Information
We take reasonable precautions to protect the security of your personal information against loss, unauthorised access, modification and unauthorised disclosure. Some of our measures include:

  • restricting access to personal information only to staff who need it to perform their duties;
  • using technology products to prevent unauthorised access or damage to records;
  • using physical security procedures for hardcopy information; and,
  • the occupancy of secured premises.

We keep our website secure with firewalls, encryption protocols and passwords. There is always the risk though of hacking on the internet.

Remember that routine/normal emails are not secure. We prefer you to provide your information through other more secure means such as the encrypted subscription page, or through telephone contact, the post or fax.

Access and Changes
Please advise us at any time your personal details change.

Third Party Websites
Our website contains links to the websites of other agencies or third parties. Those sites are independent to the Australian Police Journal Limited and they should display their own privacy policies. The Australian Police Journal Limited is not responsible for how those sites are managed. If you provide information to those sites, the Australian Police Journal Limited can not be held liable for how that information is used.
