RHSV Privacy Statement


(This statement is recommended for adaptation and use by our affiliated societies)

The Royal Historical Society of Victoria values the privacy of our members and website visitors.

We will only record your details such as your email address and telephone numbers if you take out a membership with the RHSV, make a booking through the society or request information from us such as the RHSV History News.

Your details will never be shared or disclosed to anyone else without your consent, and will only be used for the purpose you have provided them for. Information would only be shared with a third party if you consent to disclosure or we are compelled and authorised to do so by law.

If you do provide information to us, it is stored in such a way so your personally identifiable information is protected from loss or misuse. Only authorised staff are allowed access to this information and it is treated as confidential.

When you visit our site, we do log information about your visit so we can administer and improve the site. Information collected includes; server address, date and time of visit, how you got to the site, e.g. Google search, pages you visited and services you used during your visit. This information is anonymous and does not identify you as an individual. No attempt will be made to identify you from this information.

Our website does provide links to third party websites outside of our control. We do not accept any responsibility for their activities, and we advise you to examine the terms and conditions of using their websites before use and disclosing any information to them.

From time to time, the Royal Historical Society of Victoria may review and update its privacy policy and approach. If this happens, then revised versions of the privacy policy will be made available on the website.

Our approach to privacy adheres to the Australian Government’s National Privacy Principles. You can obtain more information on Australia’s approach to privacy from the Australian Information Commissioner’s website.

If you have any questions about our policy, or would like to access information we may hold about you, then please email us at office@historyvictoria.org.au. We always welcome feedback on how to improve our services.
