Privacy Policy

The privacy policy of BLW is based on respect for international standards of information privacy protection, such as the Information Privacy Principles set out in section 14 of the Commonwealth Privacy Act 1988, the National Privacy Principles and the Australian Privacy Charter.

BLW’s usage of information

BLW collects information which identifies, for each page accessed on BLW’s website, the network  identity of the machine which has accessed it.  BLW retains this usage information for purposes of network analysis, usage analysis and research into usage patterns for the purpose of improving BLW’s services.  Access to and use of this information is restricted to BLW’s staff and agents.

BLW does not disclose or publish information which identifies individual machines, or potentially identifies sub-groupings of address, without consent.  BLW does publish aggregated information about usage patterns.

BLW reserves the right to gather more extensive information than stated above (i) about any attempted access to BLW which raises security issues (and, where necessary, to make disclosures to relevant authorities); and (ii) for network analyses on an occasional basis.
