Our policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. This statement outlines how we collect and use information through this site.
This site does now use 'cookies' to record information about your visit. Except as detailed below, when you visit our site we do not collect personal information which may reveal or imply your identity. You can visit our site without telling us who you are, unless you choose to give us this information.
MDBC uses "cookies" when you visit our site. Cookies are small pieces of information which can be stored on your hard drive (persistent cookies) or in memory (session cookies). They can record information about your visit to the site, allowing it to remember you next time you visit and provide a more meaningful experience.
We use two types of cookies:
Persistent cookies - identify pages accessed and provide personalised features, for example reissuing your selected bandwidth version from your previous visit. They are used to help us develop the design and layout of the web site, improve applications, and measure their effectiveness.
Session cookies - is used for maintaining contact with a user through a session and allows MDBC to recognise you as an individual as you move from one page to another. At the end of your session, you may leave this site to go to another web site, or you may close your browser. When you do this the cookie is immediately deleted. If you do not finish or close your session (ie stay logged on), the web site will automatically log you off after about 20 minutes. The cookie stored within your browser will expire when you close your web browser.
We do collect some information when you visit this site, but this will not identify you. It is sometimes called 'clickstream data' and consists of information automatically collected and logged such as:
The Commission will not attempt to identify users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant or subpoena to access information.
We will only record your email address if you send us a message. It will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it, including a subscriptions list, and will not be added to other mailing lists. We will not use your email address for any other purpose, and will not disclose it without your consent.
The Murray-Darling Basin Commission attempts to store information as securely as possible and requires service providers to adopt best practice security policies.
