Date:

24 June 2020

SenSen Networks Ltd (SenSen, we, us, our) is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring you have a positive experience when you deal with us, both in person and on our website.
If you give us personal information, we will treat it according to this Privacy Policy. SenSen is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (“APP” or “Principles”) as set out in the Privacy Act 1988 (Commonwealth).

Whenever you use our SenSen websites, information may be collected through the use of cookies and similar technologies.

By using our Services, you agree to our use of cookies and other similar technologies as described in this Cookie Policy.

If you would like to, you can change your cookie settings at any time

What are ‘cookies’?
Cookies are small text files which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application. Your web browser (such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome) then sends these cookies back to the website or application on each subsequent visit so that they can recognise you and remember things like personalised details or user preferences.Cookies are very useful and do lots of different jobs which help to make your experience on websites as smooth as possible. For example, they let you move between web pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your experience (see below for more examples). They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

Where we refer to “cookies” in this policy, we mean cookies or similar technologies.

Which cookies does SenSen use, and why?
The following categories of cookies may be set:

‘Strictly necessary’ cookies
These cookies are essential in helping you to move around our website. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet.

Analytics cookies
In order to keep our Services relevant, easy to use and up-to-date, we use web analytics services to help us understand how people use them.
Although Google Analytics adds a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google You can prevent Google Analytics from recognising you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

Google Analytics is a tool to measure website traffic and usage. You can opt out of the collection of this information using a tool like the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Targeting and advertising cookies
These cookies track browsing habits and are used to deliver targeted (interest-based) advertising. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations, such as advertisers.

Targeted Advertising Technology
We use third-party persistent cookies to serve our online advertisements to you on other websites and/or mobile applications you visit after you’ve visited the Website. Unless you opt-out of receiving the online targeted advertisements, these online advertisements may be served to you when you use these third-party websites or mobile applications. We also receive reports from these third parties that include Automatically Collected Information regarding your use of the Website.

A full list of cookies that appear on our site are provided below.

Third Party Cookies and Website Analytics
We use third party services including Google analytics to analyse Website activity. When you visit the Website, Google Analytics automatically collects ‎information from you using Google’s analytics IDs, and Google provides some of this information to us. An analytics ID is a specific string of numbers and letters (often called a “character string”) that is assigned to your computer or device but does not name you. The analytics ID allows Google to track usage data of the Website, such as date and time of visit, duration of visit, Website traffic patterns, “clickstreams,” other similar ‎information about your use of the Website, ‎the type of web browser used, the operating ‎system/platform you are using, your IP address, the ‎websites that referred or linked you to our ‎Website, and your CPU speed.‎ Google Analytics does not share the analytics ID assigned to your computer or device that you use to access and use the Website. Google Analytics provides information about the use of our Website to us in aggregate form (i.e., data about many Website users combined and not just about you). Some of this data might include the regional location of Website users, but again, this data will be in aggregate (and not individual) form. We rely on this aggregate data to inform us how users are using the ‎Website and to help us improve the Website.

We do not attempt to specifically identify and track individuals using cookies.
