We are committed to protecting the information we collect and use by compliance with the obligations provided under the Personal Information Protection Act 2004 or its successors.

Protecting your personal information is an important aspect of the way we create, organise and implement our activities online and off-line.

You can access our website home page and browse our site without disclosing personal information.

We will ensure that your personal information will not be used or disclosed to other institutions and authorities except if required or allowed by law.

We may collect non-personal information in gathering statistical information on how our website is used, to assist you in navigating through our websites or to promote, foster & assist the private forestry sector on forest matters & forest management.

We have implemented technology and security policies, rules and measures to protect the personal information that we have under our control from unauthorised access, improper use, unsanctioned alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction and accidental loss.

We will destroy personal information where it is no longer required (except where required to be kept in compliance with the Archives Act 1983). We will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is accurate, complete and up to date whenever the Tasmanian Government discloses or uses it.

You may choose to be removed from all Private Forests Tasmania communications at any time.
