When you visit this website, anonymous information about your visit is recorded to assist with website administration. This statistical information does not identify individual users or tell us anything about you specifically, but it does record how visitors use our site. This information will not be

Clickstream data

Clickstream data refers to visitor logs and statistics that provide useful information about users' online experience without identifying individuals. Typical clickstream data collected includes:

  • Your server's address;
  • Your top-level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, .uk, etc.);
  • Times and dates of visits to the site;
  • Pages accessed and files downloaded;
  • Your operating system;
  • The type of browser you are using; and
  • The address of the last site you visited.

The Creative Victoria website uses clickstream data purely for statistical purposes (such as finding out the most popular searches and the times of day the website is used most and least) without identifying individual users.


A cookie is a block of data that is shared between a web server and a user's browser. Cookies may give the server information about a computer's identity and website visiting patterns and preferences. This website does not use cookies to identify individual users.

Web beacons

A web beacon records web page usage statistics. The Creative Victoria website uses web beacons to collect clickstream data, but does not use web beacons to identify individual users.

Are there any risks to my privacy?

Although Creative Victoria has implemented measures to protect the privacy of any personal information you submit online, you should also be aware that there are risks in transmitting information across the Internet. While we strive to protect your privacy, we cannot ensure the security of information transmitted to us online and individuals submit it at their own risk. If you are concerned about sending sensitive material to us over the Internet, you might prefer to contact us by telephone or mail.

Can I access or correct my personal information held by Creative Victoria?

You may request access to any personal information that the Creative Victoria may have collected about you. Also, you may request correction of your personal information if you can establish that it is not accurate, complete or up to date. The Victorian Privacy Commissioner has recommended that the appropriate means to access and correct information held by government departments is pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Vic).
