The RTO may also record, in writing, various communications between individuals and the RTO. In collecting personal information the RTO will comply with the privacy requirements of the
Information Privacy Principles set out in the privacy Act 1988.

Website

Third parties may use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect or receive information from your website and elsewhere on the internet and use that information to provide measurement services and target ads. Learn how to opt out and more about options at www.aboutads.info/choices. 

Google Cookies: Google Analytics is Google’s analytics tool that helps website and app owners to understand how their visitors engage with their properties. It may use a set of cookies to collect information and report website usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors to Google. The main cookie used by Google Analytics is the ‘__ga’ cookie.

In addition to reporting website usage statistics, Google Analytics can also be used, together with some of the advertising cookies described above, to help show more relevant ads on Google properties (like Google Search) and across the web. 

Google Analytics' currently available opt-outs for the web. Learn more about Analytics cookies and privacy information.

We use cookies to make advertising more engaging to users and more valuable to publishers and advertisers. Some common applications of cookies are to select advertising based on what’s relevant to a user; to improve reporting on campaign performance; and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen.
Google uses cookies like NID and SID to help customise ads on Google properties, like Google Search. For example, we use such cookies to remember your most recent searches, your previous interactions with an advertiser’s ads or search results, and your visits to an advertiser’s website. This helps us to show you customized ads on Google.

We also use cookies for advertising we serve across the web. Our main advertising cookie on non-Google sites is named ‘id’ or ‘IDE‘ and is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net. We use other cookies with names such as DSID, FLC, AID, TAID, and exchange_uid. Other Google properties, like YouTube, may also use these cookies to show you more relevant ads.

Sometimes an advertising cookie may be set on the domain of the site you're visiting. In the case of our DoubleClick product, a cookie named ‘__gads’ may be set on the domain of the site you're visiting. Unlike cookies that are set on Google's own domains, this cookie can't be read by Google when you're on other sites. It serves purposes such as measuring interactions with the ads on that domain and preventing the same ads from being shown to you too many times.
Google also uses conversion cookies, whose main purpose is to help advertisers determine how many times people who click on their ads end up purchasing their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you clicked the ad and later visited the advertiser's site. Conversion cookies are not used by Google for personalized ad targeting and persist for a limited time only. A cookie named ‘Conversion‘ is dedicated to this purpose. It's generally set in the googleadservices.com domain (you can find a list of domains we use for advertising cookies at the foot of this page). Some of our other cookies may be used to measure conversion events as well. For example, DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies may also be used for this purpose.

We also use cookies named ‘AID‘ and ‘TAID‘, which are used to link your activity across devices if you’ve previously signed in to your Google Account on another device. We do this to coordinate the ads you see across devices and measure conversion events. These cookies may be set on the domains google.com/ads, google.com/ads/measurement, or googleadservices.com. If you don't want the ads you see to be coordinated across your devices, you can opt out of Ads Personalisation using Ads Settings.

Collection and use of student personal information

The RTO will only collect personal information by fair and lawful means which is necessary for the functions of the RTO and is committed to ensuring the confidentiality and security of the information provided. The personal information supplied by individuals to the RTO will only be used to provide information about study opportunities, to enable efficient course administration and to maintain proper academic records. If an individual chooses not to give the RTO certain information then the RT may be unable to enrol that person in a course or supply them with appropriate information.

Disclosure of student personal information

Personal information about students studying with the RTO (including International students) may be shared with the Australian Government and designated authorities, including the Tuition Assurance Scheme and the ESOS Assurance Fund Manager. This information includes personal and contact details, education history, course enrolment and changes, and the circumstances of any suspected breach of a student visa condition.

The RTO will not disclose an individual’s personal information to another person or organisation unless:
a) The individual concerned has given written consent to the disclosure;
b) The RTO believes on reasonable grounds that the disclosure is necessary to prevent or lessen a serious and imminent threat to the life or health of the individual concerned or of another person;
c) The disclosure is required or authorised by or under law;
d) The disclosure is reasonably necessary for the enforcement of the criminal law or of a law imposing a pecuniary penalty, or for the protection of public revenue.

Any person or organisation to whom the personal information is disclosed as described in this procedure will be required to not use or disclose the information for a purpose other than the purpose other than the information was supplied to them.

VET Student Loans

Personal information will be collected from students seeking Commonwealth assistance, so that the RTO can assess an individual’s entitlement to VET Student Loans under the Higher Education Support Act 2003 and to allocate a Commonwealth Higher Education Support Number (CHESSN). The RTO will disclose this information to the Department of Education. The Department of education will collect your information in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principals for the purpose of administering Commonwealth assistance, including verifying information for VET Student Loans.

Full details of how the department handles personal information can be found at www.studyassist.gov.au

Security of personal information

The RTO will take all reasonable steps to ensure that any personal information collected is held
securely. Student files will be held in locked storage and information held on computers will be
password protected and backed up offsite.

Right to access and correct records

Individuals have the right to access or obtain a copy of the personal information that the RTO holds about them. Requests to access or obtain copies of personal information must be made in writing. 

There is no charge for access to personal information but the RTO may charge a fee to make copies.

Individuals will be advised of how they may access or obtain a copy of their personal information
and any fees involved within 10 days of receiving their written request.

If an individual considers their personal information to be incorrect, incomplete, out of date or
misleading they can request that the information be amended. Where a record is found to be
inaccurate a correction will be made. Where a student requests that a record be amended because it is inaccurate, but the record is found to be accurate, the details of the request will be noted on the record and the student will be given reason for refusal to amend in writing.

Written requests for access to, or to obtain a copy of, personal information held by the RTO should be sent to:
RTO Manager
PO BOX 501,
Victoria Park 6979
WA
08 9361 3111 or emailed to admin@perthcollege.com.au

This privacy policy will be made available to students and persons seeking to enrol with the RTO by publication on the RTO’s website www.perthcollege.com.au and in the student handbook.
