The CANRI program coordinators respect your privacy as a user of
the CANRI website. This notice explains what information about you
is collected when you visit the CANRI website, how we use that information
and what we will not do with your information.
Web server logs
Like virtually all servers on the Internet, our web server logs
page requests to the CANRI website and CANRI applications. None
of the details we log can be used to identify an individual. For
each page request, the server records these standard usage details:
- Date and time the request was made
- Hostname of the requesting machine (eg “canri.nsw.gov.au” or “server23.bigpond.com”)
- Name and size of the file requested from our site
- The brand and version of your web browser and operating system (eg
“MSIE 5.01; Windows 95”)
- Status of request (whether an error occurred)
- The referring website and page (the web page from which you hyperlinked
to the current page)
If you typed in a username and password to access a restricted
area of the site, then the username you entered is logged (but not
Any parameters you enter by typing or clicking on an interactive
web page are also logged. For example, the server logs terms used
in search forms, and the area and data layers displayed in maps.
These details are summarised in standard statistical
reports of site usage. We will also produce more detailed reports
to help us track usage of CANRI applications, for example to summarise
the area, scale and data selections requested in CANRI maps. These
reports do not identify individual users, but present summary counts,
percentages and so on. We use this information to understand how
the CANRI site is being used, in order to improve the quality of
the service we provide.
