AUSTECH believes that the responsible use of personal information collected on our websites is an important element in our business operations and critical to our reputation. As part of our commitment to your privacy and respect of your rights, we adhere to this Privacy Statement in the operation and management of our website, (the “Site”).
By submitting identifying data, a visitor to the Site is agreeing to the Company’s use of such data as described in this statement. Should you have questions or concerns about this statement or should you have any queries regarding any personal information relating to you which may be in our possession please feel free to direct these to:

1.1 Sites Covered By This Statement
This Privacy Statement sets out the Company’s policies relating to the collection and use of your personal information on the Site. This statement applies in addition to the Site’s Terms of Use and should be read in conjunction with them. The Site contains links to other websites. The Company is not responsible for the privacy practices of those other sites.

1.2 Collection of Data
The extent and type of information we receive from you depends on what you do when visiting the Site. If you visit our Site to read or download information, such as news items, case studies, or capability statements, much of the information we collect – such as the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access the Site, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Site – is statistical only and not personally identifiable. We use information about the number of visitors and their use of the Site in aggregate form to make our Site more useful and attractive to you.

Generally, the Company only collects identifiable information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by a visitor to our Site. Typically, the Company obtains limited identifiable information from visitors, such as name, title, address, email address, and telephone and fax numbers. For example, if you send us an email message requesting information about AUSTECH, we will use your email address and other information you supply to respond to your request, either directly or via a AUSTECH approved Partner.

1.3 Personal Information
Demographic information, including gender and occupation, is not actively sought, but may be submitted when a visitor responds to an online job application.
If you send us a resume or CV to apply online for a position with the Company or any of our subsidiaries, we will use the information provided to match you with available opportunities. It is not our intention to seek any sensitive information through our Site unless legally required for recruiting purposes. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive personal information, but should you wish to do so for any reason the Company accepts your explicit consent to use that information in the ways described in this privacy statement. CVs are retained in soft copy in a secure location, completely discrete from the Site, until such time as Recruitment staff decides they are obsolete; they are then completely removed from the Company’s internal file systems. At all times CVs and other personal data submitted as an online job application are treated in strict confidence and accorded appropriate security.
When a visitor provides identifiable information to us, we use it solely for the purposes for which it was provided. Personal data collected may be transferred to other AUSTECH Companies or Offices where appropriate to meet the purpose for which you have submitted the information. Our policy is not to share personally identifiable information with third parties, unless required by law. We do not sell personal information to others. Your personal information will be retained only for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected or as required by law.

1.4 Use of Cookies
In some areas of the Site we employ “cookies” (small data files that are sent to your computer) to improve your experience of the Site; however, these are not used to track individuals or record information about you. The use of “cookies” is now fairly standard operating procedure for most websites, but most browsers permit you to reject or disable them if you wish.
This data will simply comprise your name, address and contact details such as telephone numbers and e-mail addresses. Nothing will be collected which is intrusive or unlawful. There is no obligation on your part to provide any or all of the information requested by us.

1.5 Google Adwords
This website uses the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It means that we could advertise to previous visitors who hasn’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an inquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the AUSTECH website. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google’s privacy policy.
