Australian Science Innovations Incorporated (ASI) takes all care with practices that affect personal privacy and adopts best practice in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles and the Privacy Act.
ASI and its employees may use or disclose personal information in the administration and performance of ASI’s activities, including the publication of a student’s results if the student has achieved a prize or outstanding result. ASI will not otherwise disclose personal information unless required or authorised by law, or with the student’s consent.
ASI will not disclose personal information provided by country representatives to any other group or organisation unless they have provided permission when entering third party promotions connected with ASI programs. Otherwise it will only be used for the purposes for which it was provided.
When visiting ASI website our server records your visit and log the following – the user’s server address, the user’s top level domain name, the date and time of the visit, the pages accessed and documents downloaded, the previous site visited and the type of browser used. This information is used for statistical purposes only.
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. asi.edu.au uses first-party cookies to obtain session details for access to parts of our sites. Cookie information is not stored or collected by asi.edu.au.
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.
Your personal information may be collected and stored on cloud services that are based overseas and by using our sites you consent to the transfer and processing of information. Those platforms have a restrictive access and can only be accessed by ASI employees who will use the information exclusively for ASI-related activities and operations. In these cases, we endeavour to ensure access to your information can only occur with authorisation.
