Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.generationcollective.com.
When visitors leave comments on the 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.
We like to be open, but we have some guiding principles for visitors. You may note that some material is not downloadable or you cannot right-click and ‘copy’ that file. This way we support the business by holding back some IP and asking kindly that you contact us if you wish to use or copy our material. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Who we share your data with
We do not share your data with any third parties, unless stated in the platforms we use.
How long we retain your data
The Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 requires telecommunications companies to retain a particular set of telecommunications data for at least 2 years.
These obligations ensure Australia’s law enforcement and security agencies are lawfully able to access data, subject to strict controls. Access to data is central to almost all serious criminal and national security investigations.
A copy of the data set required to be retained and secured is available to download here: Data set (37KB PDF)
The data retention scheme will be reviewed by the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security, commencing in 2019.
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.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or 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.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
