Privacy Policy

As the operator of its website, the Commercial Law Association of Australia Limited (CLA) needs to obtain and retain information about those who are using its website.

The CLA recognises the importance, however, of protecting that information.

We know you may be concerned about what we do with that information. You have our assurance that we will not disclose the information, and will use reasonable endeavours to prevent the disclosure of the information, except to the extent:

  • indicated at the time of supply of the information to us;
  • expressly permitted under any agreement with you;
  • required for performance by us of services for you;
  • required for the ordinary operation of our website or our business (eg, to send you information about our services);
  • required under compulsion of law or provided in co-operation with any governmental authority; or
  • where it is already publicly available or is disclosed by the CLA in a manner that does not readily permit identification of information relating to you.

Subject to the above overriding prohibition on disclosure, the CLA may use the information as it sees fit for the purposes of its business.

When you visit it, information may be recorded for statistical purposes regarding your server address, domain name, date and time of visit, previous site visited and browser type.

The following disclaimers also apply:

  • From time to time the CLA website may contain links to other websites. The CLA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those websites.
  • Although the CLA has implemented substantial security measures in relation to the information, as the website is linked to the internet and the internet is inherently insecure, the CLA cannot provide any absolute assurance regarding security of the information. The CLA will not be liable in any way in relation to any breach of security or unintended loss or disclosure of information due to the website being linked to the internet.
  • The CLA accepts no responsibility for unauthorised use of any password or other security mechanism provided to you, other than by the CLA's own staff.

This website privacy policy is subject to amendment at any time. Any amendment will be made on a prospective basis, ie all information received or retained before the time of any amendment will remain subject to the policy applicable before the amendment.

This website privacy policy is separate from our policy regarding personal information (for the purposes of the Privacy Act 1988) and does not override any rights you have under that Act.
