Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy dog

We value your privacy. Here’s everything you need to know.

What data we collect and why we collect it

The only personal data we collect is from forms or petitions you complete. If you complete a form (i.e. to join our action group or submit a story) we will use your information to contact you; if you complete a petition, your name is retained and will be submitted to the respective recipients.

By default WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Our forms and petitions use Action Network

You may voluntarily provide Personal Information to us when you:

  • Create an account/profile (e.g. your full name, address and email address) as a third-party partner
  • Enter your username/password
  • Arrange to make payments for use of our services
  • Fill out a form
  • Fill out a survey
  • Conduct searches on the Sites
  • Sign up to receive email updates (e.g. email address, phone number)


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 visit our login page, 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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


By default WordPress does not collect any analytics data. However, many web hosting accounts collect some anonymous analytics data. You may also have installed a WordPress plugin that provides analytics services. In that case, add information from that plugin here.

Who we share your data with

The Coalition of Australians Against 1080 Poison use the services of Action Network for forms, petitions and donations. If you chose to complete any of these

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.

When you fill out a form, donate to us or sign a petition, your information will be retained indefinitely by Action Network. You can opt to be removed.

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.

When you chose to share your story with us, you can opt to remain anonymous.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

To protect your data we use an encryption service and two factor authentication.
