Your E-mail Address and Personal Details

The Stand By Me website will only record your e-mail address and other personal details in the event that you send us a message by e-mail, join our mailing list or submit any form on our website (including by not limited to registration forms, contact forms etc). The provision of personal details on the feedback form is optional. Users may provide details for the purpose of receiving a reply to their feedback.

Your e-mail address and personal details will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and will not be added to a regular mailing list without your prior consent by way of a specific request in writing.

Your e-mail address will be linked to other identifiable data you provide and will be stored on a secured database.

Your email address and personal details may be used from time to time for marketing purposes (e.g. membership drives) on approval of The Executive Officer. You are able to opt out of all communications by contacting us and asking us to place “Do not mail” and/or “Do not email” tags to your database entry.

We will not disclose your e-mail address or personal details to any other organisation for any other purpose without your prior written consent except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant.


The NSW Disability Advocacy Alliance uses a “cookie” for maintaining contact with a user through a Stand By Me website session. A cookie is a small file supplied by the Stand By Me website and stored by the web browser software on your computer when you access the Stand By Me website. (An explanation of cookies generally can be found at the site of the Australian Privacy Commissioner). The cookie allows the Stand By Me website to recognise you as an individual as you move from one page to another.

The NSW Disability Advocacy Alliance makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for a short time for statistical purposes:

  • the user’s server address
  • the user’s top level domain name
  • the date and time of access to the site
  • pages accessed and documents downloaded
  • the previous site visited
  • the type of browser software in use
  • where the user was referred from

Please note, that all websites that you visit on the internet do this.

No attempt will be made to identify anonymous users except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the Internet Service Provider’s log files.
