Website Usage and Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that a website downloads to your computer to record your preferences while you browse. Other technologies that may be used by us include web beacons (which may operate in conjunction with cookies). The information collected through these technologies may be used by us to improve and customise your experience on our website. In addition, we may collect aggregated non-personally identifiable data from our website to help us maintain and improve delivery of our services and to provide a consistent experience. This aggregated information assists us in improving content and website navigation. You can configure your web browser to reject and block cookies. If you decide to delete or block certain cookies, your experience on our website may be limited. When you visit any of our websites, our site’s server may record information about your visit, including:

  • IP address;
  • A top-level domain name (for example .com, .au, etc.);
  • the date and time of your visit to the site;
  • the pages you accessed and documents downloaded during your visit;
  • the previous site you visited;
  • if you’ve visited our site before; and
  • the type of browser used.

All of this information is collected for statistical purposes, which enables us to assess the number of visitors to the different sections of the site and assists us to make the website more useful to visitors.

We record this information to maintain our server and improve our services. There are several methods and packages that we use to collect visitor behaviours. We may use tools to measure and analyse internet usage across our website. This enables us to track the number of unique browsers to our websites. In some cases, we allow third-party vendors to use cookies and web beacons to provide you with information about our services and products. These technologies may be used in regard to activities like surveys, website analytics, online behavioural advertising and email campaign management.

There are ways for you to opt out of third-party cookies; (i) by contacting us; or (ii) visiting youronlinechoices.com.au that allows you to opt out of some online behavioural advertising. These services provided by third party vendors generally operate without the collection or use of any personal information. In many cases, the information relates only to a device or is of a statistical nature, and we will not be able to identity the user.
