The Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences (the Academy) complies with our obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 (Commonwealth).

When you visit the Academy’s website our servers collect routine logging information such as the pages visited, the time of your visit, the web browser that you are using and the IP address associated with your request.

The Academy uses this information for statistical purposes and for system administration tasks to maintain this service and to improve our understanding of the needs of users. We do not attempt to identify individuals, however, in the unlikely event of an investigation, the Academy, a law enforcement agency or other government agency may exercise its legal authority to inspect our server logs. If at any stage you provide us with your email address, we will only use your email address for the purposes for which it was provided. We will not subscribe your email address to any mailing list without your consent.

The Academy’s website may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that these websites are not under our control or responsibility and you are advised to review their privacy statements.

Some of the pages on our website may use cookies to enhance site functionality. Cookies are an industry standard and most major websites use them. A cookie is a small text file that our site may place on your computer as a tool to remember your preferences. You may use your browser preferences to disable cookies, but please note that this may affect your experience of the website.

Some of the pages on our website use Google Analytics or other third-party tools and we use the reports provided to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage. This makes information similar to that of routine server logs available to Google or other third-party statistics providers. The reports produced are aggregated and do not identify people.

Our website also uses interfaces with social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others. If you choose to “like” or “share” information from this website through these services, you should review the privacy policy of that service. If you are a member of a social media site, the interface may allow the social media site to connect your visits to this site with other Personal Information.
