NSWALC is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the NSWALC Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the NSWALC website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

As a general rule, NSWALC do not collect personal information about you when you visit our website. You can generally visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing other personal information, unless you choose to provide such information to us.

The information we receive depends upon what you do when visiting our website.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by NSWALC. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by NSWALC for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the NSWALC Web site.

This information does not identify you personally and you remain anonymous. This information is provided by your browser and will be used for statistical and development purposes only. Analysis of this information assists with the improvement of this website.

NSWALC encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from NSWALC so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. NSWALC is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the NSWALC and NSWALC family of Web sites.

Use of your Personal Information

NSWALC keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within NSWALC., in order to determine what NSWALC services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customised content within NSWALC to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

NSWALC does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.

NSWALC will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on NSWALC or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NSWALC and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of NSWALC or the public.

Use of Cookies

The NSWALC Web site use "cookies" to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise NSWALC pages, or register with NSWALC site or services, a cookie helps NSWALC to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same NSWALC Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the NSWALC features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the NSWALC services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

NSWALC secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. NSWALC secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

NSWALC will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. NSWALC encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how NSWALC is protecting your information.
