Web Privacy Collection Notice

The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (we, our, us, ANZCA) is committed to ensuring the privacy of individuals. 

If you visit our website at www.anzca.edu.au (our website) or access our online CPD portfolio via our website, or download our CPD portfolio mobile application (together, our Web Applications) then we will collect certain personal information from you, including, for example, your name, email address, college id.  

We may also collect information about you using a technology called ‘cookies’. That information includes the pages viewed and the information downloaded, the IP address of the computer or mobile used to visit our website, the page from where the individual visited our website, the type of browser used, unique device identifiers and information about websites visited before the individual visited our website. You can configure your browser to disable cookies, but some parts of our website may not function properly (or at all) if cookies are disabled. 

The purpose for collecting your personal information is to provide our services to assist you with tracking your continuing professional development.  

We may also use your personal information for related secondary purposes, such as to provide education and training, and to contact you regarding special offers or additional services provided by ANZCA or our partners. We may also use de-identified information for statistical and research purposes and to improve our service delivery.   

ANZCA does not sell any of the personal information it collects. When ANZCA engages third parties to provide products and/or services to ANZCA, such as IT service providers and payment processors, such third parties may have access to personal information we hold about individuals. We do not authorise those third parties to use any personal information disclosed to or accessed by the third party for any purpose other than to facilitate the third party’s completion of its obligations owed to ANZCA. We will only do this where it is necessary or appropriate to achieve the purposes set out in this Collection Notice or our Privacy Policy (Privacy Policy). 

If your personal information is not collected, we may not be able to provide you with access certain Web Applications. 

ANZCA will not send personal information about an individual outside Australia without obtaining the consent of the individual (in some cases this consent will be implied) or otherwise complying with the Australian Privacy Principles and other applicable privacy legislation. ANZCA may use online or 'cloud' service providers to store or back-upback up personal information and to provide services to ANZCA that involve the use of personal information, such as services relating to email, instant messaging and education and assessment applications. Some limited personal information may also be provided to these service providers to enable them to authenticate users that who access their services. This personal information may be stored in the 'cloud' which means that it may reside on a cloud service provider’s server which may be situated outside Australia. 

Our Privacy Policy includes information about how you may access your personal information or seek correction of your personal information. Our Privacy Policy also includes information about how you may make a complaint about how your personal information has been handled.
