Information Sharing and Disclosure
When you interact with the BECSS, either via the website or by other means such as the telephone, email or in person, information is obtained with the purpose of providing quality service delivery.
The information you provide and we maintain enables us to supply personalised products and services that are customised to your needs.
When you browse the website, the BECSS’s internet service provider automatically makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes:
- your IP address
- top level domain name (e.g. .com.au, .net, .gov, .au etc)
- the type of browser and operating system you used
- date and time of your visit
- which pages of the website were accessed
- the time spent on individual pages and the site overall
- files downloaded
- the previous site visited.
No other information is collected from visitors and no attempt will be made to identify you and your browsing activities personally, except, in the unlikely event of a law enforcement investigation, where an agency may exercise a warrant to inspect our internet service provider logs.
When registering for our newsletter, workshops or completing any other forms on our website, the BECSS maintains your email address and other pertinent information regarding your subscription, to process payments, issue tax receipts, send updates on BEC events and training opportunities or other relevant form based requests.
The BECSS may allow selected vendors the opportunity to send offers and information that it deems to be of potential value to you through its own service. However, your contact information is never released or sold to any vendor, partner or outside agency.
The BEC is partially funded by the NSW Department of Trade and Investment, Regional Infrastructure and Services (DTIRIS) and as a requirement of that funding we may be required from time to time to provide basic details of the businesses that attend our programs such as workshops, business guidance sessions, and Business Acceleration Forum and BEC Business Coaching programs. Details, such as business name, contact name ABN industry, size of business and geographical location, are used for audit purposes and / or to conduct surveys of businesses to assess the quality of services delivered. Our Training program receives Federal Government funding and as such we may be required to provide basic business details in our reports. Generally, such information is aggregated across larger geographical areas. No specific information about individual businesses in regard to issues discussed or workshop topics are provided. Where details of a more specific nature are to be included in funding reports owners are asked to give their consent.

The BECSS will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information it collects, uses or discloses is relevant, accurate, complete and up-to-date. Please contact the BECSS if your details change or if you believe the information it has about you is not accurate or complete.
