Access to information collected
No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the Internet service provider's logs or where the information is required to be provided by law.
However, the use of the website by Family Court staff using Court's facilities is subject to the Court's Internet and email policy. Where there is any inconsistency between that policy and this privacy statement in that circumstance, the policy prevails.

We will not use your email address for any other purpose, and will not disclose it to any other person or body without your consent.
Please note that when you contact the Court via email the content of your email as it is transferred across the Internet may not be secure. If you have a concern about the security of your message you are advised to contact the Court directly by telephone, facsimile or post.
