Clickstream data
Clickstreams are the paths a user takes when navigating a web site and the internet in general. When you visit one of our sites, our servers may record the following information for statistical purposes:

• user’s server (IP) address and machine name
• date and time of visit to the site
• pages accessed and documents downloaded
• number of bytes transmitted and received for each request
• previous site or page visited
• search terms used
• type of browser used

NATEX may examine this information to determine the traffic through the server and to specific pages or applications. In order to deliver better services, we may also perform statistical analysis to establish priorities and allocate resources. No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect server logs.

The statistics and log files may be preserved indefinitely by NATEX and/or the telecommunications company and used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the information supplied by the Department.

A cookie is a short piece of data which is sent from a web server to a web browser on the user’s machine when the browser visits the server’s site. The cookie is stored on the user’s machine, but it is not an executable program and cannot do anything to your machine.

Whenever a web browser requests a file from the same web server that sent the cookie, the browser sends a copy of that cookie back to the server along with the request. In this way, the server knows you have visited before and can co-ordinate your access to different pages on its web site. A server cannot find out a name or e-mail address, or anything about a user’s computer, by using cookies.

We use cookies to obtain session details for access to parts of our sites. Cookies are essential in providing a seamless access to some on-line databases. Cookie information is not stored or collected by the Department.

Email Addresses
We will only record your email address if you send us a message or supply it when participating in a discussion forum, in which case it will be visible to other users of that forum. Your email address will only be used by us for the purpose for which you have provided it and will not be added to a mailing list unless you have asked us to.

We will not disclose your email to any third parties, unless you give your consent, or the disclosure is required by or under an Australian law, court or tribunal order.

Once the NATEX receives information from you via email or any other means, the information is in a secure environment. Your personal information will not be released unless the law permits it or your permission is granted. You need to be aware of inherent risks associated with the transmission of information via the Internet.
