Privacy Information

The following provides details about Landcare Research's Privacy Policy ('Policy') in the context of the @LCR Account Manager website.

Landcare Research has a legal obligation to comply with the Privacy Act 1993. Under the Act, organisations that are in possession of an individual's 'personal information’ must observe certain restrictions and standards concerning the collection, use, disclosure and security of that information.


We may collect certain personal information from you in the course of providing this service to you. By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of the information as described here.


Landcare Research may change, or modify this Policy from time to time and will notify you of these changes on this website. Any such change, or modification will be effective immediately upon posting on the website. We advise you to check this Policy on a regular basis and your continued use of this website represents your agreement to be bound by the new terms of the revised Policy.

What identifiable information is collected?

Contact information such as your email address, postal address, name, username, and organisation is gathered directly from you when you register, and when you update your profile. If we decide to collect information from elsewhere on the site, we will include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.

Landcare Research may also collect information about its customers through their use of the services on this website, which may include information relating to their use of the website and the content they access.

How is the information used?

Our primary goal in collecting this information is to allow users to be authenticated, and to help improve our website and provide a better information resource for users.

You agree that we may use your personal information to assist us to provide these services to you, for internal research purposes, to verify your identity, for promoting and marketing other Landcare Research products to you, and for any other use you authorise.

If any user website statistics are collected, identifying features will be removed before this information is compiled and analysed on an aggregated basis.

Who is collecting information?

This information is only collected by the @LCR Account Manager as part of providing a service to you. If the data is to be collected and/or maintained by anyone else, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer, but this may reduce the service that the @LCR Account Manager can provide. You will be asked at the time of registering for any additional services whether your contact details may be shared. At no time will personal details be shared beyond these services or beyond Landcare Research without your consent.

Please be aware that the information practices of websites that may be linked to the @LCR Account Manager website or are provided as links by the @LCR Account Manager website are not covered by this privacy statement. Landcare Research is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these websites. We suggest that you review the privacy policy of each site you visit.

With whom will the information be shared?

You acknowledge that Landcare Research will only release your account and other personal information when we believe release is required to:

  1. Comply with the law;
  2. Comply with Court proceedings;
  3. Enforce our Terms of Use;
  4. Enforce compliance with a specific Data Agreement;
  5. Protect the rights, property or safety of Landcare Research, our staff and our users.

We will not sell or allow third parties to access your personal information without your consent.

How can you edit your information?

You may correct or otherwise amend your information online through the @LCR Account Manager website. Alternatively please contact us directly about updating such information.

Upon request, your information can be deactivated but doing so will result in your not being able to access protected services for which you have registered using the @LCR Account Manager. You will still be able to access any public sections of these services.

What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information?

Access to your contact details is password-protected so that only you, the @LCR Account Manager administrator, and the website administrator will have access to the information.

We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email.
