Brisbane Powerhouse abides by the Guidelines for Federal and ACT Government World Wide Web Sites issued by the Australian Privacy Commissioner.

You can generally visit without revealing personal information, unless you provide it directly to Brisbane Powerhouse. The information we receive depends upon what you do when visiting the site.

Information we collect

As is the case for nearly all websites, Brisbane Powerhouse makes a general record of your website visit, logging the following information for statistical purposes:
  • your server's address
  • the name of the top-level domain from which you access the Internet (for example, .gov, .com, .au, .nz, etc.)
  • the date and time of your visit to this site
  • the pages accessed and documents downloaded
  • the previous Internet address from which you linked directly to (except in cases where the referring site declines to pass this information on)
Brisbane Powerhouse uses this information to measure the reach of its online activities and analyse website traffic to and general user behaviour visiting the site.
We will not identify users or their browsing activities, except where a law enforcement agency (or other government agency) may exercise a legal authority to inspect the ISP logs (e.g. by warrant, subpoena or notice to produce).
In some instances, including subscribing to the APAM mailing list, applying for the APAM program, registering as an APAM delegate, and/or contacting us via the provided online form, you will opt to provide personal information to Brisbane Powerhouse.

Use of Information

Where you elect to provide us with personal details, Brisbane Powerhouse will add these to a database and use it to administer APAM. Databases we use include the APAM mailing list, the APAM application register, the APAM delegate register and the general APAM contact register.
Where you have provided Brisbane Powerhouse with personal information, we will take every reasonable steps to prevent the loss, misuse or unauthorised accessing of that information.

Disclosure of your information

Brisbane Powerhouse will not disclose or sell your information to other parties without your consent.
By applying or registering for APAM, you grant Brisbane Powerhouse the right to disclose your information to the APAM partners, as well as members of the APAM Curatorial Panel.
Brisbane Powerhouse will NOT disclose your private information to any other third party without your consent.


Brisbane Powerhouse maintains the same level of security for personal information collected in an electronic format as it does for personal information collected in paper format.
However, if you are providing personal information via an email or an online form you should be aware that there are some risks to transmitting data via the Internet, unless it is encrypted with a security certificate.
Brisbane Powerhouse uses encryption and related server side mechanisms for secure data transfer in certain areas of the site, where financial transactions may take place (e.g. credit card details); in other cases, where no financial transactions take place, web forms usually will not have encryption.
If at any time you believe the principles referred to in this privacy statement have not been followed, or have any other comments on these principles, please contact us.
The use of the term "personal information" in this privacy statement means any information from which your identity is apparent or can be reasonably ascertained.
Whilst contains links to other websites, Brisbane Powerhouse is not responsible for the content and the privacy practices of other websites and encourages you to examine each site's privacy policy and make your own decisions regarding the accuracy, reliability and correctness of material and information found.
