The data collected about your use of this website, (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored on Google's servers. Google uses this data for the purpose of compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
Google will not collect personal information about you and the reports provided by Google will only contain aggregate non-personal data about your use of our website. These reports may contain data relating to pages viewed, files downloaded or the completion of online subscriptions.
We use the data collected by Google Analytics to improve how our website functions. For example, we use the data to check whether visitors experience problems finding information and make access to information as easy as we can.
By using our website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes stated.
When you browse our website, our system automatically makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes:

No attempt will be made to identify individual users or their browsing activities except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency (e.g. Australian Federal Police) exercises a warrant to inspect our service provider's log files. This information is analysed to determine the website's usage statistics.
We collect no personal information about you unless you choose to take part in an activity that asks for information, such as:

If you choose not to take part in these kinds of activities your ability to use the website won’t be affected.
