The Information Collected
The NEW Law site collects two types of information.
The first type is anonymous information. The web server host makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes:
- the user's server address,
- the user's top level domain name (eg. com, .gov, .net, .au, etc.),
- the date and time of the visit to the site,
- the pages accessed and documents downloaded,
- the previous site visited, and
- the type of browser used.
The second type of information that NEW Law collects is personal information. Personal information is requested in order to provide personalised and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users.
Personal information requested in this site includes:
We will record your e-mail address if you send us a message, subscribe to an email newsletter, or complete a form where this information is requested. If subscribing to an email newsletter you may "unsubscribe" at any time from the newsletter mailing list. Email addresses will not be added to any other mailing lists. We will not disclose your email address without your consent unless required to by law.
Name and Address:
The site includes forms where name and address is requested. In these cases personal details are required to enable subsequent contact with you and/or to enable authentication of the information provided.
We will not collect or solicit personal information via this site which would be unlawful, unnecessary or unrelated to the functions or activities of NEW Law, or unfair or unreasonably intrusive.
Because there are risks associated with using the Internet as a transmission medium, when we use electronic forms to collect information we will also provide you with other options for providing the information - for example, a paper form and mailing address and a telephone contact.

- to conduct our business
