Privacy

Protecting your privacy and your personal information is important to us. While Western Australian Government agencies are not regulated by the Privacy Act 1988, we will respect and protect the privacy of our users and strive to achieve best practice at all times.

The Small Business Development Corporation's (SBDC) websites do not automatically collect information that would identify individual visitors. On the rare occasion that we may  collect personal information this would only be with your consent. You can access any SBDC website without disclosing personal information.

The following information is routinely collected for statistical purposes when you visit one of our websites:

  • server address;
  • top level domain name (for example .com; .gov; .au; .org );
  • date and time of your visit;
  • pages accessed and documents downloaded; and
  • address of previous website visited and the type of browser used.

No attempt is made to identify individual users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the service provider's logs.
