Privacy and Security
Australia Network is strongly committed to protecting your privacy. We operate secure data networks that are designed to protect your privacy and security and we encourage you to participate in your child's online experience.

Collection of Information
Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. Depending on the service you are accessing, you may be asked to provide information such as your name, email address and how and where you are accessing our website.

When you contact us you will be asked to complete a form, which helps us provide the best answer to you. Required and optional information will always be identified. We will only use the personal information you have provided to us for its intended purpose. Australia Network will not use it for any other purpose without your consent.

Cookies
Some parts of Australia Network's website use a technology called 'cookies'. A cookie is a small file that is downloaded from our web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Sites where you are prompted to log in or that can be customised, typically require that you accept cookies.

Australia Network uses cookies to track your preferences when you use our TV Guide pages so that your preferred schedules, viewing days and programs are easily accessible when you return to our site.

The cookies used by Australia Network do not collect personal information and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other information to tell us who you are, your screen name or email address. This data is kept securely, remains the property of Australia Network, and is not disclosed to any third party other than companies contracted by Australia Network to facilitate our services.

If you don't want to accept cookies, you can set your browser and/or firewall to block them. You will still be able to access most Australia Network online content but some interactive features will be unavailable.

Disclosure
There will be occasions where it will be necessary for Australia Network to disclose your personal information to third parties. Australia Network may be required by law to disclose the information or we may be required to disclose your personal information to third parties to provide the service you have requested.

Other than stated above, we do not disclose the personal information you have provided to any organisation or person outside Australia Network without your authorisation. Nor do we sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.

Interacting Online
There are many interactive features on Australia Network's website that you can contribute to.

When interacting with Australia Network, we suggest that you use your discretion and exercise caution when providing your personal information.

Whenever you post personal information in publicly accessible places, such as chat rooms or message boards, this information becomes available to anyone with access to the internet. This information can be collected and used by others.

Be aware that if you post personal information online it is accessible to the public and you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Therefore, we recommend you refrain from posting any information you do not want seen in these public areas. Australia Network recommends that applicants registering online do not use their real names, but a pen name or pseudonym. You must not intentionally use the name of another living person.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any personal information. Be responsible whenever you are online.

Moderation
Interactive features on Australia Network's website are moderated. Everything published on our site is public and therefore subject to the same laws that apply to other media. Contributors to this site agree not to publish any material that is libelous, defamatory, obscene, and abusive or violates any law governing vilification, harassment, copyright and intellectual property, contempt or privacy.

Australia Network may remove any material in whole or in part without notice and may also re-publish all or part of audience contributions.

Access and Correction
If Australia Network holds your personal information we will where possible provide you with access to the information. Australia Network will take reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up to date.
