The UNSW Websites Privacy Statement describes the ways in which the University manages personal information collected through UNSW websites.
If you are a student, employee, alumni, or donor of the University the following statements also apply:
The University’s websites allow for anonymous browsing and will not generally collect your personal information unless you choose to provide it.
The University collects your personal information directly from you through its websites when:
Personal information collected by the University includes your name, contact details, and information that you supply to us (such as in your requests, inquiries, or complaints). The personal information collected will depend on the reason you are interacting with us. You will be notified on how your privacy will be protected within the webform, registration or subscription that you complete. You may choose what personal information you provide, though this may affect the service we can provide to you.
Personal information is only collected for purposes that are directly related to and reasonably necessary for the legitimate functions and activities of the University.
You can disable the acceptance of cookies by your web browser at any time. However, doing so may restrict your ability to access some web pages.
The University stores your personal information in systems owned and managed by the University, and in other systems under license or by agreement. Service providers of such systems are contractually bound by the University’s privacy and security requirements. Access to your personal information is limited to University employees and contractors who have a legitimate reason to access the information.
The University is required by law to retain records that may contain your personal information for certain periods of time depending on the type of record.
The University will use and disclose your personal information only for the purpose(s) for which it was collected. In addition to any specific notification made to you at the time of collection, purposes include:
The University will seek your consent prior to the use or disclosure of your personal information for any other purpose than as advised at the time of collection, except where that other use is authorised or required by law. If you give your consent you may subsequently withdraw your consent in writing at any time.
To unsubscribe from receiving communications from the University, you can use the unsubscribe link contained in the relevant email(s) or contact the relevant Faculty or Division of the University from whom you receive correspondence. Please note that the University enables you to maintain some communications while unsubscribing from others, therefore you may wish to contact all relevant areas of the University from which you wish to unsubscribe.
You may request access to, and amendment of your personal information that is held by the University, including for corrections, amendment, deletions, or data portability. Any such request will be subject to any legal rights and obligations imposed upon the University to retain such information (e.g. retention obligations under the State Records Act).
If you wish to access, amend, or delete your personal information, or withdraw consent for a specific use or disclosure of your personal information, you should contact the relevant Faculty or Division of the University.
