AVES recognise the importance of protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information collected about visitors to our web site.
We are bound by the National Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (Commonwealth) in relation to the handling of personal information.
We may collect information when we provide our services to you. Generally we will tell you why we are collecting information when we collect it and how we plan to use it or these things will be obvious when we collect the information.
Under no circumstances will AVES sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.
We may preserve the content of any e-mail or other communication you send us. Your e-mail message content may be monitored by us for trouble-shooting or maintenance purposes or if any form of e-mail abuse is suspected.
If you request us not to use personal information in a particular manner or at all, we will adopt all reasonable measures to comply with your request.
Use of Information
When you are online, we collect information regarding the pages within our network which you visit, how long you spend on each page and what you click on. These statistics are used to monitor concurrent user numbers and loads so that the best quality service can be delivered to you with the minimum of latency.
As a general rule we do not collect sensitive information. However, if we do, it will usually be for the purposes of providing our goods or services and if the law requires us to, we will seek your consent to collect it.
We use your information to optimise and improve the delivery of our goods and services to you, including our web pages for your computer (e.g., the identity of your internet browser, the type of operating system you use, your IP address and the domain name of your Internet Service Provider).
We may use such non-personal information for internal purposes, including but not limited to improving the content of our site.
AVES strive to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personally identifiable information of our customers. We use a variety of physical and electronic security measures. These include firewalls, applications load balancing devices and other hardware and software technologies. We restrict physical access to our computer networks and all stored digital data so that personal information is secure from misuse, loss, unauthorised use or disclosure.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.
Access to Personal Information
You have a right to access most personal information we hold about you and if we deny access in some circumstances we will tell you why. To request access, please contact us.
