Subscribe to The Curtin Wire
Stay up to date
The Curtin Wire is for school principals, teachers, career advisors, year coordinators and other school/college staff who want to be kept up to date with upcoming Curtin events and important dates. It will also contain stories and news items we believe will be of interest and benefit to you. It's an initiative to reduce the amount of email and posted material we send you, by consolidating everything into one email per school term.
Subscribers will receive The Curtin Wire in the first half of each school term. View the latest.

At Curtin University of Technology we take privacy seriously. We've put together this comprehensive privacy statement outlining how we collect, disseminate and protect the personal and browsing information that we collect from users of The Curtin Wire.
The information we collect (when you browse our site)
To improve our website we measure and analyse non-identifying, volume statistical information derived from site visits. This is to improve the quality of our service and to provide more relevant content to you during your visit(s).

- the activity of the site visitor's browser when the visitor is viewing the site;
- the site path of visitors;
- general information regarding the visitor's internet service provider and host; and
- the time visitors come to the site.
Personally identifiable information we collect (when we prompt you)
There are times when we require you to submit personally identifiable information either by phone or online via forms. This enables us to provide you with information, such as events, course information and other services.
To facilitate the distribution of this content, you are asked to provide information, such as, but not limited to:
- phone or mobile number;
- e-mail; and/or
- contact address.
Based on your request, we may also ask for additional information, such as your education history or interested area of study. This information is provided by you on a voluntary basis only and is not required by us in order for you to use and enjoy the site.
Information use and disclosure (what we do with the information)
Your personal information may be used to:
- verify your identity;
- assist you in subscribing to our services;
- provide you with services you require including one-off and regular communications such as newsletters or event invitations;
- inform you of ways to help us improve our information gathering;

- maintain and develop our business systems and infrastructure including testing and upgrading of these systems.
We may use third parties (who are either located within Australia, or outside Australia) to provide automated data processing, marketing automation, data appends, and delivery services on the site for our own purposes.
When you sign up for certain site services, we may share your personally identifiable information as necessary for one or more third parties to provide that service. We take reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.
We may disclose personal information when required by law, or in order to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on the site. We may store and process personal information in Australia or any other country in which we (or any of our agents) maintain facilities.
We may use personally identifiable information that we collect to respond to your interest in information, services or promotions contained within these sites.
Security (how we keep your information safe)
The Curtin University of Technology website has physical, administrative and technical measures in place to maintain the security, confidentiality, and integrity of the data under our control, and to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of such data. We use secured server areas and firewall technology to minimise the risk of security breaches for personally identifiable information that is volunteered on the site. Finally, we provide unique usernames and passwords that must be entered each time a customer, or one of our employees that has a business need to access the information, or use one of our products via the site. These safeguards help prevent unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of all data.
While we strive to protect your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure and therefore we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you send to us. You send any information via the site at your own risk.

Curtin University of Technology is not responsible for the contents of any information provided by outside sites through these links.
