Privacy policy

The OzDAFNE program and website is administered by Diabetes Australia – Vic.

Information collected

Like many organisations, we track usage patterns on our website. Specifically, we record:

  • Internet providers.
  • Date and time of website visitors.
  • Web pages accessed and documents downloaded.
  • Search items entered.

Access to information collected

OzDAFNE may attempt to identify users or their browsing activities in order to improve the useability of the site, and to check for misuse (for example, attempts to guess usernames and passwords). In the unlikely event of an investigation, a law enforcement agency or other government agency may exercise its legal authority to inspect our Internet Service Provider's and database logs.

Use and disclosure of information collected

We will only record your e-mail address if you send us a message or register as a database user. Your e-mail address will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and it will not be added to a mailing list or used or disclosed to any other organisation or person without your consent. We may send you information related to the business of OzDAFNE at the e-mail address you provide us.

The internet is inherently insecure and accordingly, we cannot provide any definite assurance regarding security or personal information. Diabetes Australia – Vic will not be liable in any way in relation to any breach of security or any unintended loss or disclosure of that information.


Sometimes we need to store temporary information, which can personalise a website visit, using ‘cookies’. Cookies are simply an alternative for storing information used by webpage scripts in a computer’s browser rather than on a computer server. Cookies cannot gather any more information about an individual than what is already publicly available when the web is surfed or what an individual offers in a web form.

External links

The OzDAFNE website contains links to other websites which are not under the control of Diabetes Australia – Vic. We do not control, and are not responsible for, the content or privacy practices of those websites. The inclusion of any links does not necessarily imply a recommendation or endorse the views expressed within them.


Information on the OzDAFNE website is for information purposes only.

Diabetes Australia – Vic provides the OzDAFNE program as a service to the community and it is the responsibility of the individual and their health professional/s to determine the appropriateness of participating in the program.
