Collection of information

Two types of online data are collected by the college:

  • visitor logs and statistics
  • information provided by users through online forms, registration, databases and feedback.

Visitor logs and statistics

The school’s site gathers statistics on users’ online experience. Information collected includes:

  • visitor server addresses and domains
  • the times and dates the site was visited
  • the pages visitors accessed and files downloaded
  • visitors’ browsers and operating systems.

The main purpose for collecting this information is to provide statistical information used for website and system administration. The information does not identify individual users but does identify the computer’s IP address that is used to access our sites.

Logged information is not disclosed outside of the college staff or those under contract to conduct maintenance to web server components. We make no attempt to identify individuals from these records unless it is necessary to the investigation of a breach of law.

User information

From time to time our site requires visitors to provide personal information when they engage in online activities such as expressions of interest for enrolment, venue hire enquiries, general enquires etc. Personal information collected may include a visitor’s first and last name, postal address, email address, telephone etc.

Internet risks

Any personal information collected is used for the purpose of providing access to online services and monitoring such access. All college staff have a legal duty to protect the privacy of your personal information and ensure it is used only for the purpose to which you have agreed. The college does not make available to third parties (other than college staff or those under contract to conduct maintenance to web server components) any of your personal information which is stored on this website; unless you are a student enrolled at a Victorian Government school. If you are a student enrolled at a Victorian Government school then the Department may provide any parent, guardian or other person with responsibilities in relation to you with access to your personal information which is stored on this website. Personal information is handled in accordance with Victorian privacy legislation.

There are inherent risks associated with the transmission of personal information via the internet as it is not a secure medium. Do not provide any secure personal information online such as a password or credit card number or information that you wish to keep confidential.

The college has made every effort to implement security policies, rules and measures to protect your information from unauthorised access, improper use, alteration and destruction.

The college does not guarantee secure transmission of data transmitted via its website. If you have any concerns providing the personal information asked for please call our team on 03 8599 0500 and we can make arrangements to suit you.
