Greenwoods & Freehills are committed to respecting the privacy of your personal information. This Website Privacy Notice explains our policy for dealing with personal information that we collect through our website under the domain name gf.com.au ("Website").
Throughout this Policy, we refer to your "personal information" which means information which identifies you as an individual or from which your identity can be reasonably ascertained. Your home address and home telephone number are examples of personal information.
We will post any changes to this Website Privacy Notice on the Website, so we encourage you to check this Website Privacy Notice from time to time.
In addition to the provisions of this Website Privacy Notice, there may also be specific and additional privacy provisions that apply to certain sections of the Website. Because those specific and additional provisions also relate to your privacy protection, we recommend that you review them wherever they appear. In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of this Website Privacy Notice and those other specific and additional provisions, the specific and additional provisions will prevail.

In common with many commercial websites we may also collect aggregated information which tells us about visitors to the Website but not the identity of those visitors. For example, we may collect information about the date, time and duration of visits and which pages of the Website are most commonly accessed. This information is used by us to help to administer and improve the Website.
No cookiesThe Website does not use "cookies", small text files which are placed on your hard drive by some websites to store information.
Use and disclosure of informationWe may share personal information with Freehills partnership and its associated Australian entities and correspondent offices overseas. We may also share personal information with your professional advisers, organisations with whom we have co-promotional arrangements (and any third parties used in administering those arrangements) and other service providers including organisations that assist us by providing archival, auditing, consulting, mailhouse, delivery, technology and security services.

SecurityWe use a number of mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once any personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
