Privacy Policy

Information about privacy on this website – what information we collect and why

Modern information and communication technologies play a fundamental role in the activities of the Northern Territory Police Museum and Historical Society (NTPMHS). Protecting your privacy is an important aspect of the way the NTPMHS creates, organises and implements activities online.

You should be aware that there are risks in transmitting information across the Internet. If you are concerned about conveying sensitive material to NTPMHS over the Internet, you might prefer to contact us by telephone or mail.

We will only record your e-mail address if you send us a message. The information you provide will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and your details will not be added to a mailing list, unless you consent. We will not use your personal information for any other purpose or disclose it, without your consent, other than as specifically provided for in privacy legislation (e.g. unlawful activity or to protect life). Your message will be forwarded to the responsible area within NTPMHS and your information will be handled in accordance with the NTPMHS Privacy Policy.

This site is currently using cookies for web measurement. A cookie is a block of data that is shared between a web server and a user's browser. Cookies give the server information about a user's identity, preferences or past behaviour. When you look at this web site the cookie and/or our Internet Service Provider makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes:

  • the user's server address

  • the user's top level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, .uk etc)

  • the date and time of visit to the site

  • the pages accessed and documents downloaded

No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, when the Northern Territory Police Force or other law enforcement body may examine the Internet Service Provider's logs.


We have taken all reasonable steps to implement technology and security policies, rules and measures to protect the personal and health information that we have under our control from unauthorised access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction and accidental loss. These steps provide a high level of protection within the limits of available technology. We will remove personal information from our system where it is no longer required (except where archiving is required).

Individuals can request access to the personal information NTPMHS holds about them. If individuals believe the personal information is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date the individual is entitled to request that it be corrected. There may be circumstances where access to information cannot be granted as it may compromise the privacy of another individual.
