Lex Migration and its associated Australian entities Lex Legal, (collectively, Lex, we) are committed to respecting the privacy of your personal information. This Website Privacy Notice explains our policy for dealing with personal information that we collect through our website Lexlegal.com.au and Lexmigration.com.au. Throughout this Website Privacy Notice, we refer to your 'personal information' which means information which identifies you as an individual or from which your identity can be reasonably ascertained. Your home address and home telephone number are examples of personal information. We will post any changes to this Website Privacy Notice on the Website, so we encourage you to check this Website Privacy Notice from time to time.
In addition to the provisions of this Website Privacy Notice, there may also be specific and additional privacy provisions that apply to certain sections of the Website. Because those specific and additional provisions also relate to your privacy protection, we recommend that you review them wherever they appear. In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of this Website Privacy Notice and those other specific and additional provisions, the specific and additional provisions will prevail.

We may not be able to provide the full range of services through the Website if we are not provided with the information outlined above.In common with many commercial websites we may also collect information which tells us about visitors to the Website. For example, we may collect information about the date, time and duration of visits and which pages of the Website are most commonly accessed. This information is generally not linked to the identity of visitors, except where the Website are accessed via links in an email we have sent which specifically refers to the possibility that click-throughs to links may be tracked.
Like many websites, our Website may use "cookies" from time to time. Cookies are small text files that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognise your browser. Cookies may also be used to record non-personal information such as the date, time or duration of your visit, or the pages accessed, for website administration, statistical and maintenance purposes. Any such information will be aggregated and not linked to particular individuals. The default settings of browsers like Internet Explorer always allow cookies, but users can easily erase cookies from their hard-drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please note that some parts of the Website may not function fully for users that disallow cookies.
We may share personal information with other Lex entities and with third parties including our correspondent offices overseas, your professional advisers and organisations with whom we have co-promotional arrangements (and any third parties used in administering those arrangements). We may also share personal information with other service providers including organisations that assist us by providing archival, auditing, professional advisory (including legal, accounting, financial and business consulting), mailhouse, delivery, technology and security services.

The Website may, from time to time, contain links to the websites of other organisations which may be of interest to you. Linked websites are responsible for their own privacy practices and you should check those websites for their respective privacy statements.
We use a number of mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed as completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your 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 or disclosure.
From time to time, some sections of the Website may protect your personal information by requiring you to use a password. For your own protection, we require you to keep this confidential and to change your password regularly.
