The ARDC is bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act),
which sets out a number of principles concerning the privacy of individuals.
Non-personally identifiable information
For each visitor to reach the site, we collect non-personally identifiable information, including
but not limited to browser type, version and language, operating system, pages viewed while
browsing the site, page access times, search terms used and referring website address.
Use of non-personally identifiable information
The non-personally identifiable information collected will be used for the purpose of gauging
visitor traffic, trends analysis and delivering personalised content to you while you are at the
site. We will also use the aggregated data, in its entirety or in a time-based scale, to provide
statistics to our users and our partners. These statistics can either be displayed in Research
Data Australia (e.g. views, access) or as a report shared with our partners and stakeholders.
Collection of your personal information
There are many aspects of the site which can be viewed without providing personal information,
however, for access to certain features you are required to login via supported 3rd party
authorisation providers. Upon your approval, these 3rd party providers share profile information
about you with the ARDC and Research Data Australia. From this information the ARDC will collect and
store your name, unique provider ID and if available a link to your profile image.
From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously
disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future,
we will update this policy, and only data collected from the time of the policy change will be
used for those new purposes.
Sharing of your personal information
The ARDC will not disclose or on sell any personal information obtained through your login and use of
Research Data Australia. Data collected will only be used in the context of your logged in
Research Data Australia session and to improve our website and services.
Accessing Your Personal Information
You have a right to access your personal information, subject to exceptions allowed by law. If
you would like to do so, please let us know. You may be required to put your request in writing
for security reasons.
following means during business hours Monday to Friday.
