Collection of your personal information
There are many aspects of the website which can be viewed without providing personal information, however, to contact us through the website you may be required to submit personally identifiable information.
Website traffic, cookies and analytics
The Office uses a range of tools to collect and view our website traffic information. This includes cookies and analytics. This helps the Office improve our website, customise our information and services, and pursue research and development.
The information collected by these tools may include the IP address of a device, the date and time a page was visited, the pages accessed and how long pages were viewed.
You can set browsers that will notify you before you receive a cookie. This may allow you to refuse to accept it. Users can also turn off or delete cookies.
The Office also uses Google Analytics. You can opt out of this collection by using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
The Office does not attempt to identify users or their browsing activities, unless the user has signed up to an online service or a law enforcement agency or other government agency exercises its legal authority to inspect our internet web server logs for an investigation.
The eSafety Commissioner’s website uses both Australian Government and commercial web-hosting facilities.
The Office uses social networking services, including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat, to engage with the public. The Office may collect your personal information if you engage with us on these services, but we will only use it to help us communicate with you and the public.
These social networking services will also handle your personal information for their own purposes in accordance with their own privacy policies.
Emails and newsletters
The Office communicates with the public through email distribution lists and newsletters. With your consent, the Office will collect your email and, if you provide it, other contact details when you subscribe to an Office mailing list. The Office only uses this to update you on its activities and to administer the lists.
Sharing of your personal information
We may occasionally hire other companies to provide services on our behalf, including but not limited to handling support enquiries and processing transactions. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service and information is deidentified wherever possible. Equity Works takes reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.
