We know how important your privacy is to you. NSW Labor does so in accordance with current Australian best practice guidelines and the spirit and intent of the Privacy Act 1988.
Information Provided By You
In following up any enquiry you have made to us, the content of emails or comments made in feedback forms may be retained or passed along with appropriate contact details, only where this is the best avenue for answering your questions and providing you with the best possible follow-up. The information provided will not be used for any other purpose and your name and e-mail address will not be added to a mailing list unless specifically requested by you, in which case that request is confirmed by an e-mail sent to the address provided.
Information provided by you as part of a credit card transaction will be handled by a secure server, which should be indicated by your browser. The information is not held on ALP internet servers and is passed directly to the ALP's credit card transaction service provider in an encrypted form. The information will not be used for any other transaction or purpose or provided to any other third party.
Under the Election Funding and Disclosures Act 1981 (NSW), individuals and organisations are permitted to make donations of up to $5000 per financial year to the ALP, with a further $2000 allowed to be donated in aggregate to ALP candidates and MPs. Donations are not permitted from property developers, tobacco industry business entities, or liquor or gambling industry business entities engaged in activities primarily for the purpose of making a profit. It is for this reason we make provision of personal details mandatory whilst making a donation.
By signing up to participate in an online campaign or petition you are agreeing to be contacted via email about that campaign and related campaign updates. All e-mail and newsletters sent via automated mailing lists will clearly identify NSW Labor as the sender and will include a suitable method for unsubscribing. Unsubscribing from a list removes your personal details from the list. If a subscription request is received and it is not confirmed, the request and personal information contained in it will be removed from the ALP's records.
As you browse the ALP's websites, its servers log some non-identifying data which is used for statistical purposes and improving the performance of the sites and how they are presented to you.

Disclosure of information
Personal information provided to the ALP and information collected by the ALP will not be disclosed to any other third party except where it legally required, such as in the investigation of a criminal offence, and in compliance with a search warrant or subpoena. Your details will not be sold or rented to any third party.
In the case of credit card transactions, the IP address of the visitor may be recorded although this information will not be used or disclosed except where it is legally required, such as in the investigation of a criminal offence, and in compliance with a search warrant or subpoena.
Security of the information collected
Personal information provided to the ALP is not stored on the ALP's web servers and access is restricted to it, although you should be aware that unencrypted information whilst in transit via the Internet inherently is not secure. Should you wish to send information to the ALP of critical importance and be assured of high security, please arrange another method of delivery.
