The Security and Privacy Statement (this Statement) applies to THE LINK website which is operated and managed by Edith Cowan University (ABN 54 361 485 361) (“ECU”) under the domain name www.thelink.space (“THE LINK”).
ECU understands that as a user of THE LINK, you may be concerned about your privacy, confidentiality and security of information we may gain about you online. ECU is committed to protecting your privacy. This Statement explains how your personal information will be treated as you access and interact with THE LINK.
Security of information
ECU takes reasonable steps to preserve the security of cookies and personal information. If your browser is suitably configured, it will advise you whether the information you are sending us will be secure (encrypted) or not secure (unencrypted).
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Accordingly, although ECU strives to protect such information, ECU cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us using THE LINK.
If users have confidential information they wish to share with ECU, the website or its public forums are not an appropriate medium to communicate this information.
From time to time there may be opportunities for users to provide their contact details to the City of Joondalup, via THE LINK, regarding investment opportunities and other opportunities related to research and innovation. In the event you elect to follow a prompt on THE LINK to provide your contact details to the City of Joondalup, you agree to ECU disclosing these details to the City of Joondalup.
The information that ECU collects about you is dependent on how you use THE LINK.
If you subscribe to THE LINK e-newsletters, mail alerts and events, your information will be collected and stored by ECU and THE LINK’s website host, solely for the purposes of assisting ECU in the design, operation and management of THE LINK. Our arrangements with the website host contain strict privacy and confidentiality obligations.
If you visit an unsecured area of the website (that is, an area where you are not required to log on) to read or browse information, our system may record the date and time of your visit to our site and the pages viewed. However, our systems will not record any personally identifiable information.
THE LINK may also contain links to the websites of third party providers of goods and services (“Third Party Web Sites”). If you have accessed Third Party Web Sites through THE LINK and if those third parties collect information about you, ECU may also collect or have access to that information as part of our arrangements with those third parties.
Where you access a Third Party’s Web Site from THE LINK, cookies, information about your preferences or other information you have provided about yourself may be shared between us and the third party. You cannot usually be identified from the information that is shared; if you can be identified from this information, we will seek your consent before sharing such information.
Third Party Web Sites may contain their own privacy statements and those third parties are responsible for their own privacy practices.
These companies may analyse and report to ECU regarding use of THE LINK by users, but the analysis is not based on individual personal information or usage. ECU uses that analyses to measure effectiveness and relative consumer interest in the various areas of THE LINK. As a general rule, no personal information is collected by the companies in this process. If, however, any personal information is automatically collected, these companies are required under their arrangements with ECU to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of that personal information.
