What is Personal Information?
When he talks about personal information, he means information or an opinion about an individual where you can tell or reasonably work out who the information or opinion is about.
He will only collect personal information about you that is relevant to his operations. This may include general information such as your name, email address, contact details and computer’s IP address.
Where reasonably possible, personal identifying information is only collected through his website when you knowingly provide it. For example, he may request information such as your name, address and email, to provide you with information you have requested, as well as bank account or credit card details if you want to join or donate to the Liberal National Party or attend an event. If you do not provide that information, he may not be able to provide the information, goods or services you requested.
His purpose for collecting personal information should be clear when he collects it. If you are uncertain, please contact him at the address below.
You can generally visit his website without revealing who you are or other personal information.
