Privacy Policy

Polipedia Privacy Policy

Polipedia values your privacy and will not share or sell customers' details with third parties. Polipedia operates in accordance with the The Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act, the principal piece of Australian legislation protecting the handling of personal information about individuals. This includes the collection, use, storage and disclosure of personal information in the federal public sector and in the private sector.)

In the interests of keeping the site free of opinions and conjecture, which would expose the site to potential litigation, Polipedia will not allow customer-generated content on the site. We encourage customers to share information and data they find useful from Polipedia to their social media accounts, where customers and their followers are free to comment and encourage opinions about that data or information. Any comments made on a third party publication are therefore not considered to be published by Polipedia.

As part of our commitment to collecting and providing political transparency, we may need to release public information and aggregated (ie, non-personal) information to the general public and future Polipedia subscribers. This will be general in nature and not identify individual subscribers/customers.

For the protection of Polipedia and our subscribers, if you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, you may not use the Site.

Polipedia protects any data customers may give us, in both physical and technical ways, to maintain your privacy and security and Polipedia's. We are dedicated to maintaining accuracy and fidelity in data and facts. For further information please email [] (


Traditional and web-based media are welcome to use any content from the Polipedia site, but please acknowledge the source. Thank you.


Subscribers: 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. 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 customer has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about customers, 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.

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If a customer sends Polipedia an email, query or suggestion to the website, the metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For customers that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their customer profile. All customers 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.

What rights you have over your data?

If you have an account on this site 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.
