Privacy Statement

Information collected

Protecting your privacy and your personal information is an important aspect of the way the Adult Multicultural Education Services (AMES) creates, organises and implements our activities on-line and off-line. Our privacy policy reflects and complies with the Privacy Act 1988, the Information Privacy Act 2000 (Vic) and other legislation.

We will only collect personal information from you with your prior knowledge and consent. You can access our website home page and browse our site without disclosing personal information.

When you look at this web site, our Internet Service Provider (Exodus) makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes:

  • your server address
  • your top level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, .uk etc)
  • the date and time of your visit to the site
  • the pages you accessed and documents downloaded
  • the previous site you have visited
  • the type of browser you are using.

Access to information collected

AMES will not make an attempt to identify users or their browsing activities. However, in the unlikely event of an investigation, a law enforcement agency or other government agency may exercise its legal authority to inspect our Internet Service Provider's logs.

Use of information collected

AMES will only record your e-mail address if you send us a message. Your e-mail address will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and it will not be added to a mailing list or used for any other purpose without your consent.

This site does not provide facilities for the secure transmission of information across the Internet. Users should be aware that there are inherent risks transmitting information across the Internet.

Cookies

The Virtual ILC makes limited use of cookies. Their only purpose is to provide tracking of user sessions. In a dynamic application such as VILC, the server needs to know which user is making each page request and to keep track of which users are logged in, etc. It does this by writing a single ID number to each client browser - there is no user information such as names, IP addresses, etc, sent with the cookie. Every time the browser requests a page from the VILC it sends this ID number cookie back to the server, which the server uses to identify the session. Once the browser is closed the cookie is destroyed and there is no permanent record left on the client computer of that browser/user having visited the site. Those users who have cookies rejected by default in their web browser must configure it to accept them in order to use the VILC properly.
