The collection of information (Metadata)
Every time you log on to our websites your IP (Internet Protocol) address registers on our servers. Your IP address reveals no information other than the number assigned to you.
We do not use this technology to obtain any personal data without your knowledge. Nor do we use it for any purpose other than to help us monitor and manage traffic and activity on our websites, or (in case of criminal activity or misuse of information or resources) to cooperate with law enforcement agencies.
If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it. On occasion CDU uses external service providers to facilitate specific online activity; this may result in metadata being stored on systems outside of Australia.
We use a couple of different types of cookies on our sites. Below we describe the cookies we use on our sites and the purpose for which they are used. Currently we operate an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that we assume you are happy with this monitoring. If you are not happy, then you should either not using our sites, or you should delete the cookies after having visited the site, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Internet Explorer, “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari etc.)
First party cookies
These are cookies that are set by our websites directly. Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behavior on our website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This data is collected via the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. We therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.
Third party cookies
These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on our site. Examples of these would include Twitter and Facebook. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on this website. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.
The Internet is not a secure medium of communication therefore CDU cannot guarantee the security of any information which users input via website. CDU is not and will not be responsible for any damages a user may suffer as a result of loss of confidentiality. Despite the non-secure nature of the Internet, CDU takes the confidentiality and privacy of its users seriously and is committed to safeguarding their privacy and confidentiality.
