Clickstreams are the paths you take when navigating a web site. When you visit our site, our servers record the following information:

This information is collected for statistical purposes only. No attempt will be made to identify you or your browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a legal authority to inspect our server logs.

Cookies

A cookie is an electronic token that is passed to your browser and your browser passes it back to the server whenever you access a page on the AusIndustry site.

Our server generates one cookie which is used to keep track of the pages you have accessed while using our server. The cookie allows you to page back and forwards through the web site and return to pages you have already visited. The cookie exists only for the time you are accessing our server.

Collection of personal information

Personally identifiable information about you is collected only when you knowingly and voluntarily submit it to us. It is used only for the purpose for which it is submitted unless we disclose other uses in this Privacy Statement or at the time of collection.

If you provide us with your email address, it will not be added to any other mailing list or disclosed without your consent.

This site contains links to other sites. AusIndustry is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.

Security

Once we receive information from you via e-mail or any other means, the information is in a secure environment. Your personal information will not be released unless the law permits it or your permission is granted.

Note: While every effort is made to secure your information, you should be aware that there is an inherent risk associated with the use of the World Wide Web. Though minor, the potential does exist that your transactions may be viewed, intercepted or modified by a third party.
