Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Mason Lawyers we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Mason Lawyers Pty Ltd (Mason Lawyers) operates the website masonlawyers.com.au. It is Mason Lawyers’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Mason Lawyers collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Mason Lawyers’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mason Lawyers’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Mason Lawyers may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by providing stakeholders with a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Mason Lawyers also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Mason Lawyers only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Mason Lawyers’ websites choose to interact with Mason Lawyers in ways that require Mason Lawyers to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Mason Lawyers gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we provide the option for visitors to contact us via a form and in that form we ask visitors to provide a username and email address and relevant information to their circumstances. For those who wish to receive Mason Lawyers updates via email, we collect their email addresses. In each case, Mason Lawyers collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Mason Lawyers. Mason Lawyers does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Mason Lawyers may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Mason Lawyers may monitor the most popular pages on the masonlawyers.com.au site or use spam screening services to help identify spam. Mason Lawyers may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Mason Lawyers does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Mason Lawyers discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Mason Lawyers’ behalf or to provide services available at Mason Lawyers’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Mason Lawyers’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Mason Lawyers will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Mason Lawyers discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Mason Lawyers believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Mason Lawyers, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Mason Lawyers website and have supplied your email address, Mason Lawyers may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, request your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Mason Lawyers and our products. We primarily use our various blogs and articles to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Mason Lawyers takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Mason Lawyers uses cookies to help Mason Lawyers identify and track visitors, their usage of Mason Lawyers website, and their website access preferences. Mason Lawyers visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Mason Lawyers’ websites, with the drawback that certain features of Mason Lawyers’ websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Mason Lawyers, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Mason Lawyers goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Mason Lawyers may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Comments and other content submitted to anti-spam services are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Mason Lawyers may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at Mason Lawyers’ sole discretion. Mason Lawyers encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
