1. Visiting this website

We do not use any browser based tracking or analytics system.

Through our web host provider, Netlify, we get some basic, anonymous information about the number of visitors to and page views on this website, which we use to make sure it works as expected.

These page load statistics are produced from server logs, which we do not have access to, and do not include any information about your browser, how you got to this site, or other personal information. You can read about this anonymous web analytics in Netlify's documentation.

On our donations page, https://accr.org.au/donate, our donations processing provider, donorbox.org, loads 3rd party scripts, including Google Analytics and a reCAPTCHA to block bots and spammers. Donorbox.org have a clear explanation of this tracking in their privacy policy.

2. Shareholder Hub and Database

Through our Shareholder Hub, supporters who own shares in companies, can register their shareholdings with us.

We use this information for the purposes of lodging resolutions.

If you register in this program the information we collect may be provided: as the Corporations Act requires, with the company secretary of a target company; and, to save overload, other organisations we know are lodging resolutions similar to those lodged by ACCR with similar target companies.

Learn more about the information we collect and submit to companies when we lodge shareholder resolutions on our Shareholders' Frequently Asked Questions page.

3. Donating to ACCR

We use donorbox.org, a payment processor designed for non-profits, to process donations through this website. We collect minimal information to process donations and send receipts.
