Who we are
Our website address is: https://massage.melbourne. (“the Website”).

What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Your privacy concerns with the Website relate mainly to comments you may choose to leave on the Website from time to time.
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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We don’t share or sell your data to anyone.
All data is transmitted using HTTPS encryption, a secure web protocol. Our web servers are based in Sydney, Australia. Your anonymised data may travel through our server.
You should be aware that if you used a search engine service to find the Website, associated data may link your search activity with the Website. You may also be tracked by other services (for example Facebook) beyond the control of the Website or its manager, for which the manager takes no responsibility.
How long we retain your data
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.
Where we send your data
Your contact information

If you contact the manager, you may provide contact information. This is held securely and is confidential information, under Australian Federal and Victorian State laws and regulations.
If you believe your rights have been breached, you can contact the Health Complaints Commissioner of Victoria or the Massage & Myotherapy Australia Association.
