The purpose of this statement is to let you know what information is collected about you when you visit The Weekend Edition website, how this information is used, to whom it is disclosed, and your ability to have any incorrect personal information amended. Our goal is to provide you with a satisfying experience while allowing you to control your privacy and to give you a means to voice any questions or concerns you may have. This statement has been prepared in accordance with the Australian Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 and the GDPR where necessary.

The Weekend Edition is committed to protecting your privacy while interacting with our site. We want to provide a safe and secure environment for all. Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address or information about what you like and do not like. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not. We will only use any personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it.

The Weekend Edition website collects two types of information. The first type is anonymous information. The web server makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes:
• The user’s server address
• The user’s top level domain name (e.g. com, .gov, .net, .au, etc.)
• The date of your visit to the site
• The pages accessed and documents downloaded
• The previous site visited, and
• The type of browser used
• Domain site cookies

No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law-enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the internet service provider’s logs.

The second type of information that The Weekend Edition collects is personal information. Personal information is requested in order to provide personalised and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users. Personal information requested in this site includes:

  • email address – we will record your email address if you send us a message, subscribe to an email newsletter, or complete a form where this information is requested. If subscribing to an email newsletter you may “unsubscribe” at any time from the newsletter mailing list. Email addresses will not be added to any other mailing lists. We will not disclose your email address without your consent unless required to by law.
  • name, address and phone number – the website includes forms where name and address are requested. In these cases, personal details are required to enable subsequent contact with you and/or to enable authentication of the information provided. We will not collect or solicit personal information via this website that would be unlawful, unnecessary or unrelated to the functions or activities of The Weekend Edition, or unfair or unreasonably intrusive. Because there are risks associated with using the internet as a transmission medium, when we use electronic forms to collect information we will also provide you with other options for providing the information – for example, a paper form and mailing address and a telephone contact.

It is not mandatory for you to provide your personal details to access The Weekend Edition, only if you choose to subscribe, enter a competition, participate in a survey or fill in another form that requires your personal information.

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computers hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognise your browser and capture and remember certain information.

We use site cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on this site. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to the site’s users based on your visit to this site and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  • to personalise your experience – your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs to improve our website – we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you
  • to administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature.

We will only use the personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. Information will be stored for the necessary amount of time depending on the purpose of collecting it. We will not use it for any other purpose without your consent. There may be occasions where it will be necessary for The Weekend Edition to disclose your personal information to third parties. The Weekend Edition may be required by law to disclose the information, or may be required to disclose your personal information to third parties to provide the service you have requested. For example, if you subscribe we will need to disclose your personal information to third parties in order to send you enewsletters (Mailchimp) or when you enter a competition via the website (WordPress). Due to server locations, some personal information will be transferred, securely, internationally. Under no circumstances will The Weekend Edition sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information. Your details will only be passed on to third parties for the purpose of external correspondence if you have opted in for The Weekend Edition to do so.

The Weekend Edition uses DoubleClick, a third party advertising provider, to serve advertisements on the site. The site uses a third party traffic measurement service to analyse how visitors use the site. Third party advertising providers, advertisers (whose ads are displayed via the advertising provider) and the traffic measurement services used on the site may use cookies, web beacons or embedded scripts (described above) or other similar mechanisms to automatically collect website usage information. Third party advertising providers and the advertisers may use this website usage information for, among other purposes, helping deliver advertisements to you that you might be interested in, to prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times, to conduct research regarding the usefulness of certain advertisements are to you, and to monitor the effectiveness of their ads. Traffic measurement services used on the site may use the collected website usage information for, among other purposes, gathering information about users’ interactions with the site, such as which links are clicked on. Cookies, web beacons and embedded scripts and other similar mechanisms used to collect web site usage information from advertising providers, advertisers and traffic measurement services are governed by their respective privacy policies and not this privacy policy. However, we do not share any personal information with these third parties in connection with their performing these services on the website.

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that all information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete, and up-to-date and stored in a secure environment accessed only by authorised persons. Transmissions sent to or from The Weekend Edition are routinely monitored for quality control and systems administration. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from our website. These activities are conducted at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security.
