    • The Tribunal's website does not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, telephone number or e-mail address. This type of information would only be obtained if you supplied it by sending an e-mail or registering in a secure portion of the website.
    • All personal information held or collected by the Tribunal is protected under the Privacy Act. This means that, at any point of collection, you will be asked for consent to collect your information and informed of the purpose for which it is being collected and how to exercise your right of access to that information.
    • The Tribunal employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. This software receives and records the Internet Protocol address of the computer that has contacted the website, the date and time of the visit and the pages visited. No attempt is made to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting the website unless an attempt to damage the website has been detected.
    • The Tribunal does not normally use cookies to track how its visitors use this website or to determine sites previously visited.
