Privacy Policy

Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au, we want to make your online experience satisfying and safe.

Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au gathers information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters and from participation in polls and surveys. Under no circumstances does YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.

YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au gathers user information in the following processes:

1. Contact Form
YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au gathers the name, email addresses and phone number of users who voluntarily enter these details for return contact use only.

4. Children
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.

5. Usage Tracking
YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).

YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au sometimes tracks and catalogues the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine user preferences based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

6. Cookies
We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above).

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you've set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in message boards, forums, polling and surveys.

7. Security
YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorised individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

9. Your Consent
By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.

10. External Sites
YoungtownPrimary.tas.edu.au contains links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third party vendors and other third parties. You acknowledge that the organisation is not responsible for the availability of, or the content located on or through, these External Sites.
