Dynamic Web Technologies Pty. Ltd. also known as DWT is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) under the Privacy Act 1988 with respect to collection, use and disclosure of personal information. DWT also follows the APP Guidelines provided by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
Clickstreams are the paths a user takes when navigating a website and the internet in general. When you visit a DWT site, our servers may record the following information for statistical purposes:
- the user's server (IP) address and machine name
- the location details such as longitude, latitude, city, region and country
- the date and time of visit to the site
- the top level domain name
- the pages accessed and documents downloaded
- the number of bytes transmitted and received for each request
- the previous site or page visited
- search terms used
- the type of browser used.
DWT examines this information to determine the traffic through the server and to specific pages or applications. In order to deliver better services, we also perform statistical analysis to establish priorities and allocate resources.
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 server logs. The statistics and log files may be preserved indefinitely and used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the information supplied by the website.
A cookie is a short piece of data which is sent from a web server to a web browser on the user's machine when the browser visits the server's site. The cookie is stored on the user's machine, but it is not an executable program and cannot do anything to your machine. Whenever a web browser requests a file from the same web server that sent the cookie, the browser sends a copy of that cookie back to the server along with the request. In this way, the server knows you have visited before and can co-ordinate your access to different pages on its web site. A server cannot find out a name or email address, or anything about a user's computer, by using cookies. Cookies are essential in providing a seamless access to some online databases. DWT uses first-party cookies to obtain session details for access to parts of our sites. Cookie information is not stored or collected by DWT.
In addition to web server logs, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Reports obtained from Google Analytics are used to help improve the efficiency and usability of this website.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.
E-mail Addresses and other Personal Information
DWT will only record your e-mail address and personal information if you supply it to us, either by sending a message or completing and submitting a form.
The use of DWT websites, solutions and services requires the user to provide personal information. This information will be used only for the purpose for which you have provided it and will not be added to a mailing list unless you have asked us to. Nor will it be disclosed or redistributed unless it is authorised or required by an Australian law, court or tribunal order or you provide consent/permission to do so.
Collection of Personal Information
Personally identifiable information about you is collected only when you knowingly and voluntarily submit it to us. It may be used for acknowledgement and to facilitate a service or future reference unless we disclose other uses in this Privacy Statement or at the time of collection.
If you provide us with your email address, it will not be added to any other mailing list or disclosed without your consent.
When you use DWT's social media pages, you are using an external site and are therefore bound by the privacy principles of that site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of that site for further information. DWT does not endorse, and is not accountable for, any views expressed by third parties using that site.
DWT records all information posted to the DWT social media channels and uses that information for the purpose of administering the channels, for record keeping and for considering and/or addressing any comments made. No attempt will be made to further identify social media subscribers except where requested and authorised by law.
