I just have a few simple questions regarding the subject.

1. Is there a way (legally) to filter out any police officials from my website, for example: An officer cannot legally access parts of the website?
2. Is there a database of police officers in Australia? (I assume not).
3. Could you refer me to any sources of information regarding the aforementioned and possibly the policy/laws surrounding undercover police officers and Internet laws in Australia.

You may wonder why I am asking this, I wish to secure sensitive information such as business emails dealing with some former partners of MegaUpload in Australia. It is secure, however I want to explore any legal avenues to stop law enforcement misinterpereting links on the website.

1 No
2 Not as far as I know
3 No. We do not assist people who break the law from avoiding detection.

You may not be breaking the law, but the police have an obligation to investigate any complaints that are made. The are also entitled to follow any leads that find when investigating crime.

I see you are claiming to be in Sydney, which may be true, however either the computer you are using, or the proxy server you are using, is located in the UK, while the e-mail service you are using is in Canada.

That in its self is suspicious activity.

I am NOT a lawyer. Anything said is NOT legal advice.

Please post your legal questions in a forum rather than sending a PM. Thanks.

Business emails? I thought PGP was still considered safe.

Files on a hard disk? I thought truecrypt was still considered ok. You have to follow some rules or guidelines or no encryption in the world can help you.

But you want to stop police looking at your website...?    No ideas sorry.

Hope this helps
