E-petitions - Conditions of use

The petitions process is governed by the Standing Orders. These Standing Orders enable the Queensland Parliament to accept electronic petitioning (e-petitions).

By electing to join an e-petition, you acknowledge that you meet the conditions detailed below.

  1. You meet the eligibility requirement specified for the e-petition as identified on the website. This means that you fall into one of the three broad groups of petitioners:
    1. Queensland residents
    2. Queensland citizens
    3. Queensland electors in a nominated electorate.
    4. You have not already joined the e-petition.
    5. The name, address and email address details provided are your true details.

      You are allowed to enter the name, address and email address details of someone else if they are physically incapable of entering their details and:

      • the person has given you express permission to act on their behalf to record their details for the purposes of joining the e-petition (provided that the authority to act on their behalf is not revoked at the time of joining the e-petition)
      • to the best of your knowledge the details that you enter are true and correct.

      Information on the collection and storage of personal information is available in our Privacy Statement

      IMPORTANT: Failing to comply with these Conditions of Use may amount to a contempt of Parliament under the Parliament of Queensland Act 2001. Actions that are considered to be in contempt of Parliament include:

      • presenting a forged or falsified document to the House or a committee
      • submitting a petition containing false, scandalous or groundless allegations
      • inducing a person to sign a petition by fraud and misleading the House.

      You could be fined for committing a contempt of Parliament and imprisoned if you fail to pay such a fine.
