Privacy

This privacy statement applies to you when using this Goat Industry Council of Australia's (GICA) website. GICA recognises that your privacy is important and we support the state and national privacy legislation.

By using this website, you consent to the collection and use of the information as described here. If we decide to make changes to this privacy policy, we will post the changes on this page so that you will always know what information we collect, and how we use it.

On this website, we only store personal information relating to you with your permission. You may choose to reveal information to us if, for example, you subscribe to our eNewsletter or fill in a form on this website. 

We would only share such information with third parties outside GICA with your express permission or as required by the applicable law. Information is used solely for the purposes described below.

What information do we collect and why?

IP addresses

We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems, to administer our website, and to gather demographic information. When you visit our website, we recognise only your domain name and not your email address. We will see your email address only if you give it to us by filling out a form or by sending us an email message.

Personal details

If you choose to fill out a form on this website, GICA collects such information as indicated on the form. We do not share your details with others outside of GICA. 

Email addresses

If you choose to give us your email address, we will communicate with you via email. We will use your email address to send you requested information, updates, news and other items GICA deems necessary. We do not share your email address with others outside of GICA. You can choose not to receive any more email at any time. Depending on how your email application is set up, information about you may be transmitted automatically when you send an email to GICA.

Cookies and tracking technology

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you've visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of this website use cookies to track user traffic patterns. GICA does this in order to determine the usefulness of the website information to users and to see how effective the navigational structure is in helping users reach that information.

GICA may use a cookie when you peruse this website, subscribe to our eNewsletter, download an item from this website or when you submit your personal information to GICA for any other reason.  

If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of the GICA website if you do so. In particular, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website. You do not need to have cookies turned on, however, to use/navigate through many parts of this website, except access to certain webpages may require a login and password.

Data security

Some information on this site may be password-protected for your privacy and security. GICA safeguards the security of the data you send with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. In certain areas of this website, GICA uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions. While GICA strives to protect your personal information, it cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to GICA, and so GICA urges you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.

Third party sites

This website contains links to other sites. GICA does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. GICA encourages you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.

This website may contain links to websites operated by other companies. Some of these third-party sites may be co-branded with an GICA logo, even though they are not operated or maintained by GICA. Although GICA chooses business partners carefully, GICA is not responsible for the privacy practices of websites operated by third parties that are linked to this site.

Once you have left this website, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third party website to determine how they will handle any information they collect from you.

Enquiries

If you have any questions about this privacy statement (if, for example, you wish to inspect or update the information we hold about you) feel free to contact us.
