Data Collected by Marlborough Online

Marlborough Online itself collects limited information automatically via web server log files, such as IP address, date, time, and pages visited, however none of this can be used by Marlborough Online to identify an individual.

If you disable cookies in your web browser, some site functionality may be affected.


As part of the Marlborough Online Website there is a forum. In order to use the forum, you are required to register and provide some personal information to confirm your identity to ensure appropriate use of the forum. This information will not be provided to third parties, and if you choose to remove your forum profile, it will be deleted, however past posts that others have responded to may be retained. There is no requirement to create a forum profile simply to browse the Marlborough Online site.

Contact Form

If you use the contact form, you will need to provide your name and email address. This will be used by Marlborough Online solely for the purpose of communicating with you in response to your message. Your email address will not be provided to any third party without asking you first. (In some cases if you have a query that Marlborough Online cannot solve, but is able to refer you on to a third party who can, we will ask you if we can pass on your message.)

Law Enforcement

In the event of criminal activities occurring, Marlborough Online may voluntarily or as a result of a court order turn over server log files to a law enforcement authority. Law enforcement authorities may have the ability to request log files from ISPs which in combination with Marlborough Online log files, might be able to provide the identity of a web site visitor to authorities. As Marlborough Online is based in New Zealand, information requested by a law enforcement agency will not be supplied unless the request complies with New Zealand law.
