Data Collected by the City of Sydney

Data that in some way identifies the user is gathered during interactions with the City of Sydney’s web sites in the following circumstances:

  • Computer Information
    It is a necessary part of visiting any web site, including the City of Sydney’s, that the user's web browser provides the machine's identity (its IP address) to the web server, so that the server can address the reply to the correct machine. In addition, the browser type and operating system are provided.
  • Navigation and ClickStream Data
    Browsing any web site, including the City of Sydney site, generates a trail of pages visited and the time apparently spent displaying each page.
  • User Feedback
    We seek feedback from our users in order to improve the service offered by the site. Providing feedback is voluntary and does not in any way affect your access to the City of Sydney web site.
