Like most major websites, this website uses "cookies" - small text files placed on Your computer by Our web server to allow Our server to remember who You are each time you visit certain parts of the Website. Cookies are also used by this website to manage security and store information about the type of browser being used. Most browsers allow You to set your own preferences about whether or not to accept cookies, or which cookies to accept. However, to enable and enjoy full usage of this website You must allow cookies.


The website under the domain name is created and controlled by the committee that contribute reference information on the VSIR website and we reserve the right to revise the content of, amend links from or withdraw access to this website at any time without notice. You must terminate Your link to this website if we request You to do so, either directly or by notice on this website.



If any provision in these Conditions of Use is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Conditions of Use, which shall remain in full force and effect.



No waiver of any provision of these Conditions of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Our failure or delay to assert any right or provision under these Conditions of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.



We recognise the importance of privacy protection and are committed to protecting Your privacy and fully complying with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) as well as the Australian Privacy Principles. This Privacy Statement explains how Your personal information will be treated as You access and interact with this website.

As this website develops and as technology evolves, we will continue to strive to provide You with a more effective website. We encourage You to review this Privacy Statement periodically as this Privacy Statement may change from time to time.  In addition to the above there may also be specific and additional privacy provisions that apply to certain sections of the website. Because those specific and additional provisions also relate to Your privacy protection, You should review them wherever they appear. In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of this Privacy Statement and those other specific and additional provisions, the specific and additional provisions will prevail. You may browse some information-only areas of this website without providing any personal information. This website may also contain links to websites operated by third parties ("Third Party Websites"). Third Party Websites should contain their own privacy statements and those third parties are responsible for informing You about their own privacy practices.



The information about You which this website may collect includes:

  • Information collected when You register with this website profiles, personalisation preferences or requests for information You select as You use this website

  • Any messages or comments You submit to this website, including identifying information such as Your name, email address and telephone number, for example via the "Contact us" form.

  • Information submitted to online facilities such as search tools

  • Information about Your location or activity including IP address and whether you have accessed a third-party site.



We collect your personal information so that we can:

  • handle and manage Your enquiries

  • manage and administer this website; and

  • send information which We think You may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.



We will use and disclose your personal information for the purposes we collected it as well as purposes that are directly related, where you would reasonably expect us to.  We may disclose your personal information to:

  • our VSIR management committee members

  • service providers who assist Us in providing the Website or who provide other administrative services (including information technology providers, administration or business management services);

  • any of VSIR advisers or agents

  • government, statutory or regulatory bodies and enforcement bodies.

  • Any external dispute resolution body

  • government, statutory or regulatory bodies and enforcement bodies.

We will only disclose Your personal information to those third-party service providers on a confidential basis so that the service provider can effectively provide the requisite services which We require.


We may also use and disclose aggregated non-personally identifying information collected through the website as part of our process of constantly improving the website.


We may preserve the content of any email or "Contact us" message that You send us. Any personal information contained in Your message will only be used or disclosed in ways set out in this Privacy Statement.


We use a number of mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of Your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information You transmit to us and You do so at Your own risk. Once Your personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.


If You have any questions or feedback about privacy on this website or this Privacy Statement, please contact us using the Contact Us link on our website.


You have the right to access and correct Your personal information held by Us. If You request Us to correct personal information we hold in relation to You, we will take reasonable steps to correct the personal information to ensure that, having regard to the purpose for which it is held, the information is accurate, up to date, complete, relevant and not misleading.

A request to access and/or correct the personal information can be made by submitting a request via the Contact Us link on our website. 

Depending on the amount of information requested to be accessed, We may charge an access fee to cover the cost of retrieving the information and supplying it to the person who has requested access.

Access to personal information may be refused in a number of circumstances, such as where the information relates to anticipated legal proceedings or the request for access is frivolous or vexatious. If We deny or restrict an individual's access, we will explain why.

If You believe that any of the information We are holding about You is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email Us as soon as possible at the above address. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.



Complaints can be made by You via the Contact Us link on our website. We will respond to complaints as soon as possible.
