Who we are
The Aurora Expeditions’ website auroraexpeditions.com.au is operated by Aurora Travel Pty Ltd under Australian legislation.
The protection of your personal information is very important to us. We believe that at all times you should know what we do with your personal information. Our commitment to ensure the privacy and the security of the information you supply is listed below.
We do not share, sell or trade any of the information collected via our website, including email addresses, telephone numbers, postal addresses & names, with any companies or organisations. If you receive information from Aurora Expeditions, it is because you have requested it, or a friend/colleague has requested it on your behalf.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
In order to continually improve our website and ensure its relevance to our viewers we collect anonymous clickstream information from every visitor to our website, such as pages viewed, date and time, and browser type and IP numbers are used to determine domain type and geographic region.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Correct and update-to-date information
If you would like to verify or change the data we have received from you, please contact our Aurora Expeditions’ office.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
If you have opted to receive communications from us and at a later stage change your mind, you may contact us to have your name removed from our distribution lists. In fact, steps to unsubscribe will be contained in all our communications. Otherwise, please send an email to [email protected].
