Privacy Policy

The Mineral Resources Authority (MRA) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Privacy Statement applies to the MRA Mining Cadastre Portal and governs data collection and usage. By using the MRA Mining Cadastre Portal, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

The MRA collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. The MRA also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favourites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by the MRA Mining Cadastre Portal. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by the MRA for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Mining Cadastre Portal.

Use of your Personal Information

The MRA collects and uses your personal information to operate the Mining Cadastre Portal and deliver the services you have requested. The MRA also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from MRA and its affiliates. The MRA may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

The MRA does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. The MRA may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to the MRA, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

The MRA does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

The MRA keeps track of the Web pages our customers visit within the Mining Cadastre Portal, in order to determine what MRA services are the most popular.

The MRA will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on MRA Mining Cadastre Portal or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the MRA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of MRA Mining Cadastre Portal, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The MRA Mining Cadastre Portal uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the Mining Cadastre Portal pages, or register with the Mining Cadastre Portal site or services, a cookie helps the Mining Cadastre Portal to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Mining Cadastre Portal, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Mining Cadastre Portal features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Mining Cadastre Portal services or pages you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

The MRA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. The MRA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

The MRA will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. The MRA encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how the MRA is protecting your information.

The MRA welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that the MRA has not adhered to this Statement, please contact the MRA via the contact details available on this site. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
