Privacy Policy

Grattan Institute values our visitors’ private information and understands the need for security and trust surrounding such information.

If you have questions regarding our privacy policy or your private information, please contact our office on +61 3 9035 9881

The following policy outlines how we collect, store and use personally identifiable information in providing our products and services. Except for very limited exceptions described below, we do not share any personally identifiable information with third parties.

Information Collection & Use


Occasionally, we may provide you the opportunity to take part in research surveys through our site. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary. We use survey results to further improve our work, this website and its content as well as to enhance our communications with you.

We use third-party service providers to conduct surveys. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a survey with third parties unless we give you prior notice and a choice to opt out.

Job Applications

We will not share with other organisations any personally identifiable information you provide through a job application unless the job ad specifically discloses that we will do so.

Communications from the Site

Newsletters and Products

If you subscribe to our electronic newsletters, we will use your e-mail address to send the requested materials. Your data is processed using MailChimp according to their privacy policy to send you email updates.

If you no longer wish to receive electronic newsletters and/or promotional communications, you may opt out of receiving them by using the unsubscribe button at the bottom of each email, or by contacting our Privacy Officer.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Personally identifiable information

We do not share personally identifiable information with third parties, except where that information is required to fulfil a service that you have requested, such as delivering an email newsletter. In the case of external events, we may share your contact information with presenters and/or venues for ticketing purposes.

Legal Disclaimer

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on the Grattan Institute.
