Website Privacy Statement
This Website Privacy Statement explains how your personal information (being information capable of identifying you as an individual) will be treated as you access and interact with the Riverina and Murray Joint Organisation (hereinafter referred to as RAMJO) website: www.ramjo.nsw.gov.au.
This Statement is written in simple language. The specific legal obligations of the Riverina and Murray Joint Organisation when collecting and handling your personal information are outlined in the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 NSW (PPIP Act) and in particular in the Information Protection Principles (IPPs) found in that Act, which regulate the collection, storage, use and disclosure of personal information held by the NSW legislated Joint Organisations.
You can also find more information in RAMJO’s Privacy Management Plan, which explains how we manage personal information in line with the PPIP Act and health information under the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 (NSW) (HRIP Act). The Privacy Management Plan can be accessed on this website (see Governance – Policies) and is in accordance with the “Model Privacy Management Plan for Local Government” developed by the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet (Office of Local Government).
Your personal information

- any messages or comments you submit to us via this website or to email addresses displayed on this website, which may include personal information such as name, email address and telephone number.

Web statistics and cookies
In relation to Google Analytics you can opt out of the collection of this information using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
Social networking services
RAMJO may use social networking services such as Twitter, Linkedin and YouTube to communicate with the public about its work. When you communicate with RAMJO using these services we may collect your personal information, but we only use it to help us to communicate with you and the public. The social networking service will also handle your personal information for its own purposes. This Website Privacy Statement does not extend to social networking services, which have their own privacy policies.
We have implemented security policies and measures to protect the personal information that we have under our control. However, you should be aware that there are risks in transmitting information across the internet. While we endeavour to protect personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us online and therefore individuals do so at their own risk.
Once any personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure. If you are concerned about conveying sensitive material to us over the internet, you may prefer to contact us by telephone or mail.
We will remove personal information from our system where it is no longer required (except where archiving is required) and in order to fulfil our obligations under the PPIP Act.

Access and correction

You can correct or update your details by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We may ask that you verify your identity before any changes are made
