Trust is important to us so we promise to respect your privacy and not share your personal information with others. The following privacy statement describes the information we gather and how we make every effort to use it only for good.
Information you provide to us
From time to time, you may provide us with your personal details. For example, when you provide your email address to us to receive messages, you’ll need to provide us with some personal contact details. This information will be shared with the partners in the Australian AAS project. We promise never to share them with any other third party without your consent. The only time we will provide your details to others is if you’ve consented or when we are legally required to do so.
We will only use personal information provided by you for the purposes for which it was collected. We may also send you alerts on the latest news and other updates we think you’ll be interested in related to the outdoors community. You can let us know at any time if you want to stop receiving these communications.
Feedback provided may be used at the discretion of the Australian AAS Steering Committee. Any public or Technical Working Groups use of the feedback will not include the source of the feedback. For example the Technical Working Groups will receive the feedback in a form that does not identify the author or if feedback is used in a Q&A or FAQ, then all information will be made anonymous. No undertaking is given to provide a specific response to individual feedback provided. Feedback will be considered on its merits. Consideration as to the AAS content and any potential changes as a result of feedback is at the discretion of either the Steering Committee or the appropriate Technical Working Groups.
When providing your sensitive information online, such as financial information to make a purchase, we’ll redirect you to a secure server and notify you of this redirect. Your personal or credit card information is never stored on this site.

You can access our website without disclosing any personal information. Our website does not collect or record personal information, other than information you may choose to provide to us via email or submission through any forms provided.
Some non-personal information (i.e. Google analytics information) is automatically recorded by this site’s web server for statistical and system administration purposes only. Things like the date and time of visit, pages accessed and downloaded, the address of the last site visited, computer operating system and browser type.

This web site at times uses “cookies” to help interactions such as to know when you are returning to the site to personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page to provide convenience and features to save you time. For example, if you personalise pages or register with the site, a cookie helps the website recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved. Sensitive information like credit card details are not stored in these cookies.
