Collection of personal information
It is intended that MyVictoria can be used anonymously. However, for some MyVictoria functions, the collection of personal information is necessary or unavoidable.
You will know if MyVictoria is collecting personal information from you because you will be requested to provide it. There are two exceptions to this:
- where someone else provides MyVictoria with your personal information. MyVictoria cannot prevent this. However, you are entitled to access and correct any personal information about you collected by MyVictoria; and
- where MyVictoria collects statistics using software techniques such as web server log file analysis, clickstream data, cookies and web beacons. For an explanation of these techniques, and how they are used by MyVictoria, see web measurement services used by MyVictoria below. Such statistics may qualify as personal information under the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic). However, these statistics are not used to identify individual users of MyVictoria.
Internet use risk
You should be aware that there are risks in transmitting information across the internet. However, MyVictoria takes reasonable steps to protect any personal information from unauthorised access once that personal information comes into its possession.
