Your Privacy is Important to the FMB
Any personal information we collect is protected by the Privacy Act. The Act lets you see personal information held by the government. It also helps to keep that information private.
We do not collect any personal information about you when you visit our website unless you allow us to. For example, you may give us your email address or other contact information so we can get back to you. We protect your privacy and personal information at all times. It will only be used to respond to your comments or questions.
IP addresses let computers communicate with each other over the internet. We use software programs to see how many people visit our website and protect against access without permission. These programs record the IP addresses of computers that visit this site. We do not link IP addresses to individual users. The only time we might do this is if someone tries to hack or damage the website.
Use of Your Personal Information
The FMB will only use your personal information with your permission to:
- answer a question, respond to a comment, or do something you ask us to do.
- help us respond in full to your requests, eg. for services.
- protect the FMB from illegal activities.
If we want to use your information for anything else, we will ask for your permission.
