This work is copyright. Permission is given for non-profit electronic viewing, via the Internet. Apart from this, and any use as permitted under the Australian Copyright Act 1968, no part may be reproduced by any process, without permission from AIDN.


References to other sites when provided, are an information service only and should not necessarily be construed as an endorsement. Conversely, omissions should not be construed as non-endorsement. Although every care is taken to provide links to suitable material from this site, the nature of the Internet prevents us from guaranteeing the suitability, completeness or accuracy of any of the material that this site may be linked to. Consequently, AIDN can accept no responsibility for unsuitable or inaccurate material that may be encountered. Also, AIDN is not responsible for the accuracy or legitimacy of information found elsewhere on the Internet and there is no guarantee that any of the sites listed will be available at any particular time. We do not guarantee any services which might be announced
The Australian Industry & Defence Network Inc (AIDN) is committed to the promotion of the highest standards of compliance in all regulatory matters affecting our members and industry in Australia. The Privacy Act 1988 as amended applies to AIDN and our privacy policy implements both private and public sector application of that Act. In essence, the following principles apply to your use of this site:
1. Collection
When you access this site, AIDN collects information relating to your visit including personal information the subject of the Privacy legislation in Australia. When you submit any Visitor Data to us, your submission is an acknowledgment of and agreement with the terms of our policy on privacy as set out in these Terms and to the use of that Visitor Data by AIDN.

Purpose of collection: Any Visitor Data of a personal or sensitive nature that is collected from this site by AIDN will only be used as necessary for the business to be transacted between us and for the purposes of providing our Visitors and Members with better services and products.

2. Disclosure and use
We may need to provide your contact details to delivery companies, and web-hosting organisations, but we will not sell or transfer your information to a third party for marketing purposes without your consent.

We may, in the ordinary course of our own business, use Visitor Data to direct market our products and services.

We will not disclose your personal information to anyone else for any other purpose unless we are required by law to disclose it or you tell us we can or should.

Other information collected on site might be used by us to enable us to be proactive in assisting you in matters that either you or we have identified as relevant to your organisation and in particular, we may contact you to assist you in navigation of the Internet itself or location of like organisations suppliers or others with whom you may deal.

Emailed responses and additional or new information regarding the products and services of AIDN may be accessed on this site based on information we have collected from our Visitors. Much of the information can be collected automatically when a Visitor hits this site.

3. Access
AIDN access to the website administration is limited to authorised persons - employees and in some cases contractors and consultants who are all bound by contractual obligations to maintain the confidentiality (where applicable) and privacy of personal information in that Data.

Subject to the rights of other Visitors and persons whose information may be collected and aggregated with yours, you may request access to your personal information that we hold at any time and you may at any time request AIDN to delete your personal data held by us. We will take all reasonable steps to action that request promptly. However, there may be technical or other constraints to comprehensively identifying all such information and completely destroying all details of your visit and the information contained in your data, as well as legal and statutory duties and responsibilities imposed on us that might also prevent us from destroying or removing from our records all such information. Nevertheless, your request will be treated, to the best of our ability given those constraints, as a signal that the information cannot be disclosed or used by us without your consent.

Given our commitment to your privacy, we can request verification from you and evidence to support such a request to ensure that the person who so requests that information is the person entitled at law to receive it.

4. Security
AIDN is continually assessing and updating its systems to ensure the security of information on the website as well as that retained on our independent systems. All reasonable efforts are made to provide an acceptable level of confidence that Visitor Data cannot be used by unauthorised persons or in a manner likely to affect the reputation or standing of Visitors.
5. External links
This web site may contain links to, or frame, web sites of third parties ("external sites"). We are not required to maintain or update them and such links should not be construed as any endorsement, approval, recommendation or preference by AIDN of the owners or operators of the external sites, or for any information, products or services referred to on the external sites unless expressly indicated on this web site. If you access another organisation's website using a link from our website, you will leave the AIDN website and will be subject to the terms, conditions and circumstances of the site you visit, including the level of privacy protection offered on that site. AIDN's policies and protections will no longer apply once you leave this site.

AIDN makes no warranties and accepts no liability in relation to material contained on external sites. Those sites will probably also have different privacy provisions. AIDN is not responsible for those sites or for any consequences of you accessing them through our website.

6. Communications between us
Where you have provided personal information to us by email, this electronic method will be used in preference to other methods of communication by us. You should indicate in your email if you prefer not to receive our marketing material in this manner. Most of the information we send to you which might be classed as direct marketing material will also provide you with an opportunity to refuse future material from us.
7. Updating
If any of the personal information which you submit to us through the website, changes or becomes inaccurate, we ask that you notify us of the changes via admin@aidn.org.au so that we can take steps to correct the data we hold. Unless you tell us, we cannot be responsible for inaccurate or out of date information.
8. Storage
