1 Clickstream Data and Cookies

Our service provider (Webfaction) makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes - the user’s server address, the user’s top level domain name (eg. .com, .gov, .au, .uk etc.), the date and time of the visit to the site, the pages accessed and documents downloaded, the previous site visited and the type of browser used. No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the service provider’s logs.

Cookies are small pieces of information stored by web sites on your computer. Very many sites use them, for a range of purposes. If you have configured your web browser not to warn about cookies, you probably have quite a few already stored on your hard drive. You must have cookies enabled in your browser in order to use this web site - we use the cookie to track whether you are logged in, and to store your log in details, and these are used to enhance your experience of the site.

3 Accessing your personal information

The Australian National Privacy Principles give you the right to access the information we maintain about you, and to change it if necessary. You are able to access the key information simply by logging into the web site, and can change items like your email address yourself. If you wish to update or correct any part of the information, please advise us and we will make the changes as quickly as possible.

PLEASE NOTE: Any information you provide in the Forums section will be published on the web and it may be accessible to millions of users from all over the world. The information can be searched for using an identifier such as your name and that thus your information can be copied, and used by any web user. Most importantly, you must be aware that once your information has been published on the web, IFACCA has no control over its subsequent use and disclosure.
