- Information we automatically track: We automatically log certain information about how you’re using our site. This information may include the URL that you just came from, your internet protocol (IP) address and the pages you visit while on our site.

Sharing of Information
If you request to be added to the mailing list Australian Policy Traders may also use your personal information to inform you of other products or services available, and occasionally to conduct research about your opinion of current or new services and resources. Australian Policy Traders does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. If you wish to have your personal information removed from our system, please email Australian Policy Traders with your request.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
