Privacy Statement

Menslink is committed to protecting your privacy. We respect the privacy of your information, and manage it according to the Law. The Law regulates how your information is handled throughout its life cycle, from collection to use and disclosure, storage, accessibility and disposal.

Personal Information collected by Menslink is protected under the Privacy Act 1988 (Commonwealth) as amended by the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2001 (Commonwealth) including the National Privacy Principles and the Health Records Act 2001(Victoria). Menslink is required also to comply with any other relevant state or territory privacy legislation (the Law).

Please note that if Menslink is served with a Subpoena by a Court of Law to provide information, Menslink must do so. Likewise, as a Mandatory Reporter, Menslink is required by law to immediately report child physical and sexual abuse to CYPS.

The primary purpose for collecting information from you is to provide services in accordance with the Menslink Constitution, and to update you on other Menslink specific activities that may be of interest to you. Your information may be used to: provide you with information; report to government or other funding bodies on how funding is used; process your donation and provide a receipt; respond to your enquiry. It may also be used for any other purpose for which it was requested and to which you were advised or provided consent. Information may be used for directly related purposes.

If you have any concerns or complaints about a breach of this policy please contact Menslink. This should be done within a reasonable time from when you first become aware of a breach of the Menslink Privacy Policy. Please identify the conduct that is the basis for the complaint and be as specific as possible about the details of the grievance.

If you think there is information that is held by Menslink that is not accurate, you may ask to have it corrected. We encourage you to check this policy on our website as it may change from time to time. We will post any changes to the policy on this page. If you are not satisfied that your complaint has been adequately handled by Menslink, you may refer the matter to the Office of the Federal Privacy Commissioner.

Please also note that when you use this website our Internet Service Provider (ISP) may make a record of your visit and log your server address, your domain name, the date, time and duration of your visit, the pages and documents you accessed, the previous site you had accessed (ie the referring url) and the type of browser you are using. This information is collected for statistical purposes only, and Menslink will not make any attempt to identify users according to their browsing activity. In the unlikely event of an investigation, a law enforcement agency or other government agency may exercise its legal authority to inspect our ISP’s logs.
