Your Local Guide to Perth and Western Australia

Perth Local recognises the importance of protecting the privacy and the rights of individuals in relation to their personal information. This document is our privacy policy and it tells you how we collect and manage your personal information. We respect your rights to privacy under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Act) and we comply with all of the Act’s requirements in respect of the collection, management and disclosure of your personal information.

What is your personal information?

When used in this privacy policy, the term “personal information” has the meaning given to it in the Act. In general terms, it is any information that can be used to personally identify you. This may include your name, address, telephone number, email address and profession or occupation. If the information we collect personally identifies you, or you are reasonably identifiable from it, the information will be considered personal information.

What personal information do we collect and hold?


For Subscribers, we may collect your name, contact telephone number, organisation name, and email address. By subscribing to our newsletter you consent to us sending such material to you. For material that we email to you, we provide a functional opt-out facility in all promotional emails. Our newsletters and EDMS are sent via MailChimp and all personal information is stored according to their policies.


If you are under the age of sixteen (16), please do not use Perth Local without the consent of your parent or legal guardian. We ask that parents and legal guardians help enforce our Privacy Policy by advising children not to provide personal information through services online without permission. If you believe your child (under the age of 16) has provided personal information to us, please contact us so we can react accordingly and delete or obfuscate your child’s data.


When visitors leave comments on our site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.


If you have left comments, 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.


At times, we may be legally requested to disclose your personal information. These requests will be adhered to if the following is met- (a) required by subpoena, law, or another legal process; (b) necessary to assist the Police force in Western Australia or any State or Territory in Australia and/or government officials or agencies; (c) necessary to investigate violations of or otherwise enforce our Legal Terms; (d) necessary to protect us from legal action or claims from third parties including you and/or other Members; and/or (e) necessary to protect the legal rights, personal/real property, or personal safety of Perth Local, our users, employees, and affiliates.


The security of your information is important to Perth Local, but it is imperative to note that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is always 100% secure. While we endeavour to use commercially viable and respected means to protect your Personal Information, we are not able to guarantee its absolute security. We utilise practical protection measures to safeguard against the loss, abuse, and modification of the individual Data under our control. Personal Data is kept in a secured database and always sent out by means of an encrypted SSL method when supported by your web browser. No Web or e-mail transmission is ever totally protected or mistake cost-free. For example, email sent out to or from our website may not be protected. You must take unique care in deciding what info you send to us by means of e-mail.
