Our Privacy Policy

This is our privacy policy, which is based on the privacy policies of Creative Commons. Creative Commons is not affiliated with the Rebecca Jane Foundation - they have just been kind enough to share their privacy policies under an open license, which has made it possible for us to reuse content from their policies.

This means that our privacy policy is shared under a Creative Commons ShareAlike license, which means you’re more than welcome to repurpose it for your own use. Just make sure to replace any reference to us, and we’re sure that Creative Commons would appreciate a link somewhere on your site. They spent a lot of money and time on what appears below, and other people shouldn’t need to do the same. However, please keep in mind that this Privacy Policy may not be completely suitable for your situation. We strongly encourage you to seek the advice of your own legal resources before repurposing this Privacy Policy on your own site.


This Privacy Policy applies to information that we collect about you when you use:

Throughout this Privacy Policy reference to our website, mobile applications and other products and services will be known collectively as "Services". Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of our products or services that have a separate privacy policy.

Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information. As used in this policy, “personal information” means information that would allow someone to identify you, including your name, email address, IP address, or other information from which someone could deduce your identity.

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to improve our Services.

Data Collection

We collect information in three ways

Information You Provide to Us

It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:

Information Collected Automatically

We also collect some information automatically.

Information from External Sources

We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log in via a single sign-on authentication service like Google or if you connect your rjf.org.au login to a social media service (like Twitter, Facebook), we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.

Purposes for Using Information

We use information about you as mentioned above and for the purposes listed here.

Sharing Information

We do not sell our users’ private personal information. We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:

Information Shared Publicly

Information that you choose to make public is disclosed publicly. That means, of course, that information in your public profile that you make public are all available to others. Public information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties. Please keep this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.

How Long We Keep Information

We discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it - which are described in the sections above. We are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to our website, such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic and investigate issues as they arise.

While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.

To enhance the security of your login, we encourage you to enable our advanced security settings if available, like Two Step Authentication.


You have several choices available when it comes to information about you.


Our Services are primarily hosted in the United States of America. Please note therefore that your personal data may be located on servers outside of your home country. By providing your personal data you consent to the use of your personal data for the uses identified above in accordance with the Privacy Policy.

Third Party Software

If use third party plugins, or other third party software or addons in your browser, please keep in mind that when you interact with them you may provide information about yourself (or your site visitors) to those third parties. We do not own or nor control these third parties and they have their own rules about collection, use and sharing of information, which we strongly advise you to review.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, we may change our Privacy Policy from time to time, add clarification or make adjustments to account for applicable law.

We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to our Privacy Policy. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the change log below, and, in some cases, we may provide additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage and/or sending you a notification through email or your dashboard). Your further use of the Services after a change to our Privacy Policy will be subject to the updated policy.
