Information about users of this website is not provided to another business entity or academic institution, ie we do not sell or otherwise provide profiling data or mailing lists to other bodies.

Information that identifies the network identity of any device accessing any page of the site may be retained and used for network analysis, usage analysis, and research into usage patterns for the purpose of improving our information services.

Apart from security/law enforcement exceptions noted below, we will not disclose or publish information that identifies individual machines, or may potentially identify sub-groupings of addresses without consent.

Access to and use of that information is restricted to Caslon Analytics personnel and contractors subject to an agreement to adhere to this policy. Data storage and disposal arrangements meet Australian best practice standards.

We reserve the right to gather more extensive information than indicated above regarding any attempted access to the site that raises security issues, or in circumstances where there is reason to believe a breach of the law is being or has been committed, and where necessary to make disclosures to the relevant authorities.

subsection marker     confidentiality of data collection

From time to time Caslon conducts surveys and gains information from focus groups or in one-on-one discussions. All information gathered - offline and online - is treated on a confidential basis.

Unless previously and explicitly identified during the collection process we do not disclose any data that could reasonably be expected to enable identification of individual citizens or that can be readily attributed to particular contacts.

Feasibility studies and other reports commissioned from Caslon are treated on a strict commercial-in-confidence basis. Release, in full or in part, of data and recommendations is subject to prior agreement.

We encourage visitors to be aware when they leave this site and to read the privacy statements of each and every site that collects personally identifiable information.
