The policy below outlines how we intend to protect your privacy.

Collecting your personal information

Any personal information about you will only be gathered from three sources:

  • Details provided by you (or, for residents, someone on your behalf) to us by phone, email or on-line forms,

  • Details that has been available historically from community sources such as the local telephone book or community groups mailing lists.

  • Details that are directly linked, and integral to your involvement, in local community groups such as the Mt Wilson/Mt Irvine Rural Fire Brigade, the Mt Wilson and Mount Irvine Historical Society, Mount Wilson Progress Association Inc. and others.

What is this information used for?

We will use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • to advise of upcoming events

  • to distribute newsletters and other community-related information or announcements

  • to contact you in times of a local emergency such as a large bushfire incident

  • to record information that is directly related to your involvement in local community groups.

Disclosure of personal information

Any email lists, data or information held by this website will not be sold to an external third party and will only be used or disclosed for the purposes outlined above.

Accuracy of Information

The accuracy of this information depends to a large extent on the information you provide. That is why we strongly recommend that you advise us immediately if the information has changed (for example, email address or telephone number) or is incorrect.

Security of Information

The collected information is restricted to general access via a robust security system where an individual is assigned a specific ‘security role’ and log-in password.  This role controls what web pages or documents you can access, and what database information (if any) you can view, create or edit.

The assignment of roles is created and modified by a small number of approved system administrators of the Mount Wilson Progress Association Website Committee. This Committee will take all reasonable steps to protect the personal information it holds from misuse, unauthorised access and modification.

A casual visitor to this site will be able to only access the public section and will not be assigned a user name and role, and will not be able to access all pages on the website.

Community groups will determine and control the security access within their individual website pages. 

Links to other websites

This website contains links to other websites. These linked sites are not under the control of the Mt Wilson website, and we are not responsible for the management or protection of any personal information you provide to these sites.
