This statement applies to user interactions with Creative Partnerships Australia and is designed to comply with State and Federal privacy laws in Australia. Creative Partnerships Australia is committed to ensuring that the Personal Information it holds about individuals is handled appropriately and lawfully.


The Creative Partnerships Australia site makes some use of data that directly or indirectly identifies users. We take great care with practices that affect personal privacy. Creative Partnerships Australia staff welcome feedback from their users in relation to the site’s design and practices, and to this Privacy Statement. Questions and feedback should be addressed to the webmaster.

Automated Data Collection

Data that in some way identifies the user is gathered during interactions with the Creative Partnerships Australia website in the following circumstances:

Computer Information

It is a necessary part of visiting any website, including the Creative Partnerships Australia site, that the user’s web browser provides the machine’s identity (its IP-address) to the web-server, so that the server can address the reply to the correct machine. In addition, the browser type and operating system are provided.

Navigation and Click-Stream Data

Browsing any website, including the Creative Partnerships Australia site, generates a trail of the pages that are visited, and the time apparently spent displaying each page.

Data Storage, Use and Disclosure, and Retention

All personal data described in the preceding section is stored in transmission logs, and archived for a period that is yet to be determined but is likely to be at least 12 months and quite probably 7 years.

The data is used by Creative Partnerships Australia site software, and by staff involved in the Creative Partnerships Australia operation, only for:

  • website and system administration, including monitoring to prevent security breaches;
  • customisation of the website to the user’s needs;
  • and evaluation, research and development.

Identified data can only be re-disclosed to the user if the user provides the unique request session number. Identified data may be disclosed to a third party only in circumstances in which it is legally authorised, such as in the investigation of a criminal offence, and in compliance with a search warrant or subpoena.
