Web statistics and cookies

A cookie is a package of data which a website requests be stored on your computer to identify you as a user of that website. Cookies are used to store information about a user’s preferences, and to enable the dynamic display of a website according to a user’s preference when they return.  You may choose to disallow cookies through your web browser settings.

Google Analytics is a tool to measure website traffic and usage.  You can opt out of the collection of this information using a tool like the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

As part of our digital marketing, UTS Insearch may collect data from you through Google Analytics, by using cookies or by other automated means (such as a server or proxy logs). The information collected using these tools may include your server address, your domain name, your IP address, the date and time of your visit, the pages accessed and documents downloaded, the previous site visited and the type of browser and device you used. These tools do not match any data collected with any personal information, which means that you can browse the UTS Insearch website anonymously.

From time to time, we also allow third party vendors, such as Google, Facebook, Ad Roll, Double Click and LiveChat, to use cookies to collect or receive information for the purpose of delivering targeted advertising to users who have previously visited the UTS Insearch website (e.g. you may see one of our adverts on the Google display network or on Facebook after browsing our website). 

Social media services

UTS Insearch uses a range of social media services such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube, YouKu, Weibo, We Chat and QQ for student recruitment and marketing purposes.  When you communicate with us using these services we may collect your personal information and use it to help us to communicate with you and the public. The social media services will handle your personal information for their own purposes and will have their own privacy policies.

Security

UTS Insearch has implemented security policies and measures to protect the personal information that we have under our control.  However, you should be aware that there are risks in transmitting information across the Internet.  While we endeavour to protect personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to us online and individuals do so at their own risk.

Once any personal information comes into our possession, UTS Insearch will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.

Publishing personal information on this website

UTS Insearch will only publish your personal information on this website if it has been collected for this purpose with your knowledge or if you have consented to the disclosure.  When giving such consent you should be aware that information published on this website is accessible to millions of users worldwide, that it will be indexed by search engines and may be copied and used by any web user.  This means that once information is published on this website, UTS Insearch has no control over its subsequent use and disclosure.
