Information collected by this site
The information we collect will depend upon what you do when visiting our site. Except as stated in this statement, we will not collect personally identifiable information about you when you visit our sites unless you choose to provide such information to us. You are free to visit our site without providing personally identifiable information. However, if you would like to access our Services, in some cases you must first register or create an account or learning profile with BDU. When you register or create an account or learning profile, we will request certain personal information. Requests can include, but are not limited to, your name, address, city, state, postal code, county, email address, age, home or other contact information, office/institution contact information, gender, and parent/guardian contact information.
We may use this information to create an account or learning profile and issue you an access ID and password. If you are paying with a credit card, we also will collect your credit card number (employing industry standard security and encryption technologies), billing information and email address to process your payment.
Personal information better enables us to provide you with content relevant to your interests and provides us with aggregate demographic data that BDU uses to improve the services offered to users. Users may change their personal information at any time by using the provided interface once they are logged in and as often as necessary. If users are unable to log in and change their information themselves, they will be able to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us at the telephone number 0431 2407089.
BDU gathers information about all users collectively, such as what areas users visit most frequently and what services users access most often. BDU automatically logs IP addresses, session sources, and other data which tracks users' access to our sites. We analyze these logs for system performance monitoring. These logs are analyzed for the overall, aggregate trends they reveal about our customers, not for the behaviors of individual users.
Certain non-personal information regarding users is recorded by the standard operation of the Internet servers hosting our sites. This information may be used to provide visitors to our sites with an enhanced, online experience. BDU may disclose aggregated user statistics, in order to describe the service to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties and for other lawful purposes.

We or our hosting provider may collect traffic information from visitors for statistical analysis and site improvement.

Log file information may include, but is not limited to, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. We or our hosting provider use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movements in the aggregate, and gather demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses and other log file information are not linked to personally identifiable information. We do not try to track users or to identify users individually, but we or our hosting provider do review this information to understand overall trends and to determine what kinds of content are popular and useful to users.
Our websites use security measures that we believe are reasonably designed to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Personal information is stored in a restricted access, secured database and only BDU staff or other authorized personnel supporting your enrollment or Services are authorized to have access to that database. BDU employs security measures and industry-standard encryption for all online purchases. All users are strongly advised to use Web browsers with 128-bit or better encryption features.
BDU has placed all of its web and application servers inside of locked cages or rooms within the data centers. We deploy firewalls, intrusion detection, and other unpublished security measures to control access to personal data stored within our enterprise.
