The content of this statement forms the basis of the internal Web Privacy and Security policy that applies to user interactions with the West Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) Website at: http://www.dmp.wa.gov.au
Data Collection and Click-Stream Data
Browsing any website, including the DMP site, generates a trail of the pages that are visited, and the time apparently spent displaying each page. Click streams are the paths a user takes when navigating a website and the Internet in general.
When you visit our site, our servers may record the following information for statistical purposes:
The user's server (IP) address and machine name
The date and time of visit to the site
The pages accessed and documents downloaded
The number of bytes transmitted and received for each request
The address of the referring page visited
Search terms used
The type of browser used
DMP examines this information to determine the traffic through the server, and to specific pages or applications, in order to deliver better services.
No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, or the need to determine details related to a security breach or other inappropriate activity.
Protection of Personal Information
DMP will only record your email address if you send us a message, or if you register with us to use a software application, or to be included on a mailing list. Your email address will only be used for the purpose for which you provided it. We will not use your email address for any other purpose and will not disclose it to other parties, without your consent.
Any personal details submitted via the DMP website will only be used for the purpose for which they are provided. We will not use your personal details for any other purpose and will not disclose them to other parties, without your consent.
Where we allow registration for a mailing list then we will also provide a facility for you to edit or remove your details from that list.
Information given during the course of online purchases and product orders may be used to determine your liability to Australian GST on the items purchased or ordered.
Links To Other Websites
DMP may decide to link to other websites which contain related information. The Department is not responsible for the content of any linked sites.
A link to a site does not imply that the Department endorses that site or the organisation operating that site, it is for reference purposes only.
DMP may link to a site that collects information about the user and we cannot control the collection of this information. Users should contact these content providers directly if there are any questions about the use of information they collect. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies, or no policy at all. We encourage users to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing them with personal information.
