Internship In Australia (IIA) is committed to protecting the privacy and security of personal information of visitors to, and members of our website. Personal information includes information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as name, address, phone number and email address.

The information below addresses several important issues relating to how we deal with information about you. This privacy policy applies to all information supplied to IIA, including metadata.

Why we collect information about you

IIA uses your personal information only for the purpose of responding to and fulfilling your requests for our products and/or services. Primarily, IIA collects personal information about you for the following purposes:

  • to enable you to purchase or access our products and/or services.
  • to determine your eligibility for the products and/or services about which you have expressed interest.
  • to notify you of any new information relating to the products and/or services about which you have expressed interest.
  • to send you information about IIA products, services and/or special offers that we believe may be relevant to you.
  • to notify you about changes to our web site.
  • to ask your opinion in helping us improve our products and/or service.

We only ask for information that is necessary for the purposes outlined in this policy.

How we collect information about you

IIA obtains your personal information in one of two ways. The first and most common way is by you supplying this information to us via our webpages or by contacting us directly. The second way we may obtain your personal information is by receiving your request for one or more of our products and/or services through one of our affiliate institutions to which you have applied through.

Where your information is stored

Personal information collected by us or our affiliate institutions is stored in a secure, encrypted operating environment in Sydney, Australia. Such information is accessible only to appropriately authorised IIA staff.

What we do not do with your information

We do not sell, rent, share, trade or give-away any information we hold about you to anyone external to IIA unless you expect us to do so or you have given your consent.

We do not collect personal information about you if you only browse this website. This means visitors to our website can browse anonymously. This website only uses session cookies when you login as a member. These cookies do not store any personal information about you. When you close your browser the session cookie is destroyed and no personal information is kept which might identify you to us in the future.

How you can access and control your information

At IIA we believe that you should have ultimate control of your information. By logging in to our members area, we enable you to access and control your personal information at any time. In the member’s area, you are able to view every piece of information stored about you, update this information if your details have changed, or even delete this information if you so choose.
