PRIVACY AND LEGAL


We don't just expect transparency in others.

Your privacy and security is important to us. It is equally important that you know exactly what happens with your information and other data when you interact with the Australian Democrats. The Australian Democrats strives to adopt best practice in these fields - we believe in transparency and accountability in politics, and that starts right here.

Our full Privacy Policy is available in .pdf here or at the bottom of the page.


We care about your cyber safety.

We do our absolute best to ensure that our data solutions are Australia-based. Not only is that good for local business, but it's great for personal security.

However, there are some products and service we use which are not located in Australia. As a result, sometimes information may be subject to another jurisdiction (such as the USA or the EU).
