Privacy Policy

Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy on our website and how it affects you.

  • We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
  • Other 3rd parties like Google and ShareThis may also collect anonymous statistics about your visit. We can't control them but we don't believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
  • We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services.
These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.

What are cookies?

Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task
  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with govt services so we can make them better

You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them from about cookies.
