Privacy Statement

Some functions on our site may require or ask you to provide information and personally identify you for the purposes of interacting with our site. This may include surveys, requests for information or action. All information collected will be used in compliance with the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Victoria).

If you choose to provide the Yarra Ranges Shire Council with your personal information through this site, the information will remain within the Yarra Ranges Shire Council and we will not give it to anyone outside of the organization or use it for any other purposes than what is stated.

We track the domains from which this site is visited and use that data to analyse trends and statistics to enable us to improve the site, however once used it is discarded.

If you choose not to give us your personal information, you can still use most of the facilities provided by this site. You merely will not be able to access facilities requiring registration such as bill payment options.

When using bill payment options we do not store any of your credit card details, rather this is a transaction directly between the bank and the payment facilitator.
