Privacy  Policy

What is personal information?

‘Personal information’ is information or opinion relating to an individual that could be used to identify that individual. This can include your name, contact details, occupation, business and information relating to your dealings with us.

Why do we collect this information?

We generally collect personal information through direct contact with you. We may also collect personal information from Flinders University, other related entities or third parties, for example where we receive reports, references or contact lists from those entities.

Additionally, personal information may be collected from forms you complete and when you use our website. You should be aware that our internet service provider collects a non-identifying record of your visit to our website for statistical purposes. We also make limited use of ‘cookies’ (messages given to your web browser by our web server, stored by your browser and sent back to the server each time a page is requested from the server). These cookies are used to monitor usage of our website. Information collected through such analysis is anonymous. Many internet browsers are set up so that they accept cookies.
