Privacy Policy

Last updated: February 13, 2021

The Editor's Office Pty Ltd (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the Wiki Fishing Spots website (the “Service”).

This page informs you of our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Terms of Use

By using this website you accept our Privacy Policy.

You agree not to post abusive, obscene, slanderous, hateful or threatening material, or anything that violates laws. Doing so may lead to you being banned and your internet service provider being informed. The IP address of posts is recorded to help enforce these conditions.

You agree that the website administrators will remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time. While the administrators will attempt to remove or edit objectionable material quickly, it is impossible to immediately review every message. The administrators reserve the right to delete users for any reason, without warning.

You acknowledge that all posts made express the opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

You agree to information you have entered being stored in an electronic database.

Please note that search engines and websites not associated with the administrator/owner of this website may copy or archive your posts.

External content

External content that is linked from this site, such as YouTube videos, weather and government regulation pages, is not associated with this website, and is the sole responsibility of the external content providers. This site makes no guarantees about the accuracy or suitability of external website content.

Some images displayed on this website are republished under a Creative Commons licence. The licence can be viewed here.

Your e-mail address will be used to confirm your registration details and password and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one.

The administrators of this website makes no guarantee that this site is fit for any particular purpose, or that information within is accurate.

The administrators of this website will not be held liable for any financial loss or misadventure arising from use of this website, including use of its content.

You agree that information you post in the public section of this website may be posted on other websites or in off-line publications owned or otherwise associated with the operator of this website – the material may be published in unedited or edited form and may include both text and pictures.

The Service is funded primarily by advertising revenue, and therefore will not be permitted to function when an Ad Blocker is operating on a user viewing device. A user will be provided three page views before being redirected to a URL page reminding them to switch off the Ad Blocker if they wish to continue using this site.

Some links to external websites may earn the owners of this Service compensation in the form of sales commissions or link click payments.

Using the Maps

You agree for your personal data to be processed by The Editor’s Office Pty Ltd (t/a Wiki Fishing Spots), for the purpose(s) of presenting the data you have submitted on the map.

You agree for your personal data, provided via map API calls, to be processed by the API provider, for the purposes of geocoding (converting addresses to coordinates), reverse geocoding and generating directions.

Some visual components of WP Google Maps use 3rd party libraries which are loaded over the network. At present the libraries are Google Maps, Open Street Map, jQuery DataTables and FontAwesome. When loading resources over a network, the 3rd party server will receive your IP address and User Agent string amongst other details. Please refer to the Privacy Policy of the respective libraries for details on how they use data and the process to exercise your rights under the GDPR regulations.

WP Google Maps uses jQuery DataTables to display sortable, searchable tables, such as that seen in the Advanced Marker Listing and on the Map Edit Page. jQuery DataTables in certain circumstances uses a cookie to save and later recall the “state” of a given table – that is, the search term, sort column and order and current page. This data is held in local storage and retained until this is cleared manually. No libraries used by WP Google Maps transmit this information.

For Google’s terms of service and privacy policy please see here … Google’s Privacy Policy.

We do not send the API provider any personally identifying information, or information that could uniquely identify your device.

Where this notice is displayed in place of a map, agreeing to this notice will store a cookie recording your agreement so you are not prompted again.


Advertising on this forum will in some cases be served by third parties such as Google, which may supply content based on your browsing or search history, making advertising more relevant to your interests. You agree to allow this system to operate while viewing this forum.

This website promotes the services of its advertisers/sponsors/contributors. Users who promote non-sponsor services on this site or act against sponsor interests, beyond fair comment, may be removed without warning.


You agree that the administrator’s decision will be final in any competitions run on this website. Any prizes won are not redeemable for cash.

Data Longevity

The administrator reserves the right to close the website at any time, which may or may not entail destroying the historic database.

Fishing Advice and Regulations

The administrators of this site provide no guarantee that fishing advice within is accurate or reflects current legal requirements.

Fishing regulations are vast, complex and constantly changing. These include possession limits, open seasons, species bans, bait gathering restrictions, new or changed marine park and reserve boundaries, gear specifications, site closures, and more.

Fishermen must check the latest regulations using relevant government websites/publications to ensure compliance with the law.
