Privacy Policy

Last updated 31 October 2018

Your privacy and confidentiality is extremely important to me.

I understand, that as a visitor to Views from a Bridge (‘this Site’), you want to be sure I use your personal information only as you intend. So, this policy applies to you and outlines the steps I’ll take to safeguard your information.

How I collect your personal information

When you contact me using the email form on this Site, subscribe to receive new blog notifications or leave blog comments, I collect personal information about you. This may include your name, email address and social media handle.

How I use your personal information

I use your personal information to correspond with you. I do not share, sell or disclose this information to third parties, except as set out in this notice or otherwise required by law.

If you leave comments on this Site, the content becomes available in the public domain to be read, copied or downloaded by other people. Neither you nor I have control of its use and I accept no responsibility for what a third party may do with it.

How I store and manage your personal information

I take all reasonable steps to securely store your personal information and protect it from misuse, loss, and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. In doing so, I may use outsourced services in countries outside Australia, but only where those services and countries have adequate privacy protections.

I retain your personal information until you unsubscribe from my mailing list or otherwise ask me to delete it, or for as long as necessary to comply with my legal obligations.

How you can access the information I collect about you

You may ask to review, update or remove the information I hold about you, including any information you have provided, at any time by contacting me.

Routine information collection

Like all websites and servers, this Site recognises basic information about visitors. This may include your IP address, domain and browser details, pages you view and how you have reached them. This information does not personally identify you and may be used in a collective, anonymous and general way to improve your experience on this Site.


This Site also uses cookies to collect visitor information in an anonymous form.  Cookies are small text files placed on your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to track your web browsing behaviour. They do not access any personal information stored on your computer.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies or modify your browser settings to disable them. However if you do so, you may not be able to use all the functionality of this Site.

Links and embedded content

Some posts on this Site may include direct links to other websites or embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) that I consider useful and relevant.

Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you visited the other website. Be aware that linked websites may collect data about you, use cookies and monitor or track your interactions with the content. If you choose to follow a link, you do so at your own risk. I do not guarantee these websites or their privacy policies.

Changes to this privacy policy

I may update this privacy policy from time to time to keep it current. So, I encourage you to visit this page regularly and stay abreast of any changes.

If you think this policy falls short of your expectations or that I am failing to comply with it in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
