Privacy Notice

Swan Christian Education Association, Inc. (SCEA) maintain a Privacy Policy along with a number of other policies that are available for download from our Policies Page. The Association is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012. This amendment makes changes to the Commonwealth Privacy Act 1988 (“the Act”).

Our day-to-day operations, communications and marketing practices are frequently reviewed and updated so we can keep up to date with current best practice while respecting the privacy of those who use our services and access information from our websites and other sources. This notice and any relevant policies will therefore change from time to time without notice.

Your Information

As with most websites and electronic services, information is collected when a user accesses our services. We, and service providers acting on our behalf, collect information so that we can better service our customers and market our services to visitors. An example of this is the use of Google Analytics code on the pages of our website which report to us the number of visitors accessing certain pages on our websites.

Information submitted to us, via our websites, online forms, by email, or other online and offline services is collected and maintained so we can better service our current, prospective and past customers. An example of this is our use of email addresses to send regular school newsletters to interested parties.

Cookies, Remarketing and Audience-based communication

Cookies are small files that web browsers store on your computer’s hard drive, that enable web pages to recognise your browser and remember certain information. We use third party cookies to better understand our visitors and tailored marketing activities tailored to our visitors.

For example, 3rd party cookies such as those operated by Google’s Adwords and Analytics suite and Facebook’s Pixel service, allow service providers to show you ads across the internet, such as on the Google Display Network, or on social media services such as Facebook. This allows us to communicate with groups of users who have visited our websites in the past or shown interest in our services.

Partners and Third Party Applications

We partner with many organisations and services to deliver our services and your information may be managed by those organisations, and may be stored outside Australia. When relevant, their privacy policies may be listed here:

Opting Out

A number of services, including those that we use, provide options to opt-out of cookie collection. You may opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting the Ads Preferences Manager.

The Digital Advertising Alliance and the Network Advertising Initiative both operate services where you can opt-out of the collection of usage data for interest-based advertising and other uses, by participating companies.

Our regular communications, such as SCEA and School newsletters, contain unsubscribe links where you can request to be removed from that channel of communication. We request you remain subscribed to communications that are relevant to you; such as Members' News to be advised of upcoming Members' events.

Updates to this notice and Policies.

As with all of our policies, the Association may, from time to time, review and update our Privacy Policy to take account of changes to the Association’s operations and practices and to make sure it remains appropriate to the changing regulatory environment. As such this notice may change without notice.

If you have any questions or enquiries related to our Privacy Policy or other Policies, please contact us.
