What personal data do we collect and why?
Cookies can track how often you use a site, information about your computer, browser or device (including your IP address or your mobile device type and unique identifier). Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.
This website collects data about the people who visit the site to be able to understand who is coming to the site. Data collected will only be used to understand trends, at an aggregate (group) level (for example, how many men or women visit, how many people from regional or metropolitan areas visit) and we will only use this information to improve web performance, web services, and website maintenance.
We do not ask for any identifiable information as part of visiting the website (without logging in). But to the extent that any site visit data could make you identifiable, we will not attempt to identify individuals from the records automatically generated by the server unless required to do so as part of an internal investigation or for a law enforcement-related purpose, and then, only in compliance with the Privacy Laws as applicable.
We may also use site visit information for security audits to protect against threats from hackers, and for other law enforcement and security purposes.
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 work for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Media hosting and delivery
Parlour uses cloud hosting video platforms YouTube and Vimeo to store and display video content, and Buzzsprout to store and display audio (podcast) content. Viewing or downloading content via these platforms may result in them collecting information about your visit, including your IP address.
If you edit or publish written content (for example on your Marion’s List profile) 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 one day.
If you upload images to the website (including to Marion’s List), you should avoid uploading images that include embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
You can view Google’s Privacy and Terms. You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customise GDN ads using the Ads Preferences Manager or by downloading the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
Who we share your data with
We do not share any personal data with anyone.
How long we retain your data
For users that register on our website, we 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.
The website files and database are regularly backed up and stored offline for security purposes. This means that copies of the website including user account details current at the time the backup is made are stored for an indefinite period.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site 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.
