Where we handle personal information, we are committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information and to handling it in a responsible manner in accordance with the Privacy Act 199 (Cth) (Privacy Act). The Privacy Act incorporates the National Privacy Principles, which set the minimum standards for how private sector organisations are required to handle your personal information.

Information that is not capable of identifying you, such as the number of users visiting the Site, is collected through code embedded in the Site.

Other information, such as browser type, is included in a 'cookie' that is sent to your computer when you are completing certain tasks on the Site. A cookie contains bits of information that enables our servers (ie. the computers that house the Site) to identify and interact efficiently with your computer. Cookies are designed to provide a better, more customised website experience, and to make it easier for you to use the Site.

You can configure your browser to either accept all cookies, reject all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being sent to your computer.

Information you provide to us on the Site is securely protected as it travels from your computer to our servers by the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocols. We take all reasonable precautions to ensure that any information you provide to us is transferred securely from our servers to mainframe computers (no personally identifiable information is stored on our servers). These mainframe computers are not able to be accessed directly through the internet, due to protection provided by several levels of firewall security to prevent unauthorised access.

Whilst we strive to protect such information, we do not warrant and cannot guarantee the security of information which you transmit to us. Accordingly, any information which you transmit to us is transmitted at your own risk.
