This privacy statement discloses our privacy policy, including what information we collect, how we use it, and how you can correct or make changes to that information.

For purposes of this Privacy Statement, the terms “we,” “us,” “our, DMF,” and “Daniel Morcombe,” refer to Daniel Morcombe Foundation Inc. “You” refers to you, as a user of this Site. By using this Site, you consent to the terms of our Privacy Policy as described herein.

DMF is committed to compliance with The Privacy Act 1988 and understands the importance of following National Privacy Principles outlined in the Privacy Act to ensure the privacy of your personal information. Any information, we collect in relation to you, is kept strictly secured. We do not pass on/sell/swap any of your personal details with anyone. The following Privacy Policy explains how we manage your personal information. Personal information, as defined in the privacy legislation, is information, or an opinion, in any form, and whether true or not, about an individual whose identity is apparent or can reasonably be ascertained from the information or opinion.


We only collect information about you when you supply it to us on a voluntary basis. For example, we may collect personal information about you, when you:

• Request any information about us or our educational resources or services

• Purchase any of our merchandise or make a donation

• Communicate with us

• Enter a promotion or competition or respond to an offer

• Subscribe to any newsletters that we may offer

The sort of personal information that we are likely to collect from you depends on the information that you provide to us and may include such things as your name, address, phone number, email address, credit card details along with transactional information such as the type and quantity of merchandise that you purchase from us.

When you call the DMF we may monitor your telephone conversation for staff training and service quality control procedures.

2.Collection of information other than personal information

Like many websites, DMF’s website uses “cookie” technology. When you first connect to our site, the cookie identifies your browser with a unique, random number. The cookies we use do not reveal any personal information about you. Cookies allow you to login to your account, maintain an order and to purchase items in under your account. Cookies help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our Site so we can make the Site serve you better.

Cookies sent to your computer from DMF only last while you are browsing our website. We do not store persistent cookies on your computer. Cookies also allow us to give you a more personalised donor / shopping experience by displaying products that interest you throughout our product pages, thus providing you with a more friendly, interesting and enjoyable experience. Whenever you use our website, or any other website, the computer on which the web pages are stored (the Web server) needs to know the network address of your computer so that it can send the requested web pages to your Internet browser. The unique network address of your computer is called its “IP address,” and is sent automatically each time you access any Internet site. From a computer’s IP address, it is possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer, but otherwise it is anonymous.

We do not keep a record of the IP addresses from which users access our Site except where you have specifically provided us with information about yourself, in which case we also record your IP address for security purposes. An example of this would be when proceeding to the payment page to finalise an order you may wish to make. After completing the form provided, your IP address will be stored along with a transaction number that allows us to track your order.

If you do not wish to receive cookies or want to be notified of when they are placed, you may set your browser to do so, if your browser so permits.

3. Use

We use the personal information that you provide to us to conduct our business with you, to facilitate and manage our dealings and relationship with you (including any feedback that you may provide us), to develop and improve our resources, merchandise and services and for any other purpose for which you may disclose your personal information to us.

If you enter a competition or promotion or take up one of our offers, we will use your personal information to conduct that competition, promotion or offer and to comply with any regulatory requirements (such as notifying State/Territory lottery departments and publishing winner(s) names if required).

We may also use your personal information to notify you about changes to our educational products or services, new merchandise, and future offers in which we think you may be interested. If you prefer not to receive such information, simply follow the unsubscribe instructions contained in the particular communication.

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future, we will use for these new purposes only, data collected from the time of the policy change forward will adhere to our updated practices.
