When visiting the Australian Science Innovations website our server records your visit and log the following – the user’s server address, the user’s top level domain name, the date and time of the visit, the pages accessed and documents downloaded, the previous site visited and the type of browser used. This information is used for statistical purposes only.
A cookie is a short piece of data which is sent from a web server to a web browser on the user’s machine when the browser visits the server’s site. The cookie is stored on the user’s machine, but it is not an executable program and cannot do anything to your machine.
Whenever a web browser requests a file from the same web server that sent the cookie, the browser sends a copy of that cookie back to the server along with the request. In this way, the server knows you have visited before and can co-ordinate your access to different pages on its web site.
A server cannot find out a name or email address, or anything about a user’s computer, by using cookies. Cookies are essential in providing a seamless access to some online databases. asi.edu.au uses first-party cookies to obtain session details for access to parts of our sites. Cookie information is not stored or collected by asi.edu.au.
In addition to web server logs, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Reports obtained from Google Analytics are used to help improve the efficiency and usability of this website.
