Education and Outreach Privacy statement

When you register on the CSIRO Education portal, we will collect your name and contact details in order to facilitate and administer your participation in the programs you register for.  We will also use your contact details to send you information about CSIRO Education and Outreach programs or events you’re interested in.  You can set up your own preferences about what you want to receive from us and you can update these at any time.

We may also use your personal information for the purposes of monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of our programs, although where possible, we will use aggregated and de-identified data to do this.

The administrators of the CSIRO Education and Outreach portal will be able to access your personal information from within the portal and may collect it for the purposes of administering your account, including to moderate content, monitor and ensure compliance with the terms and conditions, and to evaluate the overall operation of the portal and how it is being used by subscribers.

Your personal information will be treated as confidential and it will be accessible only by those who need the information for administration and evaluation purposes.

In managing your personal information, we will:

  • hold all personal information in secure databases, hosted by CSIRO.
  • ensure that at any time, you will have the ability to “unsubscribe” from our  communications.
  • ensure that a direct link to “unsubscribe” is made available in mass communications from us. Alternatively, unsubscribe requests can be made directly to us education@csiro.au or you can manage your own communications preferences within the customer portal.
