Privacy Policy – Terms and Conditions

The Australian Indigenous Education Foundation Privacy Statement

The Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (ABN 13 127 908 187) (AIEF) is committed to protecting your privacy. AIEF is guided by the National Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act) as well as other applicable laws protecting privacy.

AIEF may modify this Privacy Statement from time to time and if it does so, it will post any updated Privacy Statement on this website. We encourage you to check the AIEF website periodically to ensure that you are aware of our current Privacy Statement.

Collection and use of personal information through this website

When you use AIEF's website, you may choose to provide your name, email address or other personal details in order for us to:

  • Respond to your queries about AIEF's work;
  • Respond to your query about working for AIEF;
  • Administer and acknowledge your contributions or donations; and
  • To keep you informed about AIEF’s activities and results and involved in AIEF’s future.

Unless you have asked us not to, we will also send you further information and updates about AIEF. We generally use and disclose your personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected, unless otherwise required or authorised by law. For example, we may disclose personal information to our contractors or agents who help us with tasks such as mailing our reports or bulletins. When we collect personal information, we may sometimes also use it to help us to analyse how we can continue to fulfil our mission as effectively as possible.

If at any time you do not want us to use your personal information to send you any further information, you can always let us know by contacting our Chief Executive Officer through the contact details given below.

Administration of this website

When you visit this website, we may record anonymous information about your visit and log the following information for statistical purposes and to allow us to develop better online services:

  • Your server address;
  • Your operating system (for example Windows, Mac etc.);
  • Your top level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, .uk etc.);
  • The date and time of your visit to the site;
  • The pages accessed and the documents downloaded;
  • The previous site visited; and
  • The type of browser used.

This information is not specific to an individual and is used for system administration purposes, as well as statistical analysis. While anonymous information does not tell us anything about you specifically, it tells us about how you use our site.

Donations – refund policy

Any request for refund of contributions already donated to the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF) by a donor will be considered and determined on a case by case basis. Refunds will be returned to the bank account originally debited.

When a request for a refund is received, an assessment of the reason given for the refund request will be undertaken by AIEF. The following reasons will usually be considered favourably:

  • An error has been made by AIEF
  • A donor's banking details are fraudulently obtained and used
  • AIEF has received a donor's details in error
  • A donor has previously requested that regular debits be cancelled, however the debits have continued

If it is agreed that a refund is to be made a donor will be refunded within five working days of the decision.


Another type of anonymous information shared between your browser and our server is a cookie. A cookie is a small text file that a server places on your hard drive to identify that subsequent requests to a site have come from the same user.

AIEF may use cookies to ‘remember’ your browser between page visits. In this situation, the cookie identifies your browser, not you personally. AIEF may use cookies on this website to develop patterns of site usage.

Third party links

There are several places throughout this website that may link to other websites that do not operate under our privacy practices. When you link to other websites, our privacy practices no longer apply. We encourage visitors to review each website's privacy policy before disclosing any personally identifiable information.

Secure transmissions

While AIEF endeavours to provide a secure Internet environment, users should note that there are inherent risks associated with transmission of information via the Internet.

Access and correction

We will provide you with access to most personal information that we have about you, but sometimes that will not be possible, in which case we will tell you why. If you would like to access your information or to find out what information we have about you please contact our Chief Executive Officer at the contact details given below.

When you request access, we may need to take measures to verify your identity. If you think that any personal Information we hold about you is not accurate, complete or up-to-date, you may request us to correct that information. We will take reasonable steps to correct such personal information unless we disagree with you about whether the information is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
