Website Security and Privacy Policy

The Bairnsdale and District Arts Society is committed to providing a safe and secure browsing experience and protecting the privacy of all website visitors. Here we explain the security measures in place, what cookies are used and what information is actually gathered.

Website Security

Website secured by Let's Encrypt ® 256-bit data encryptionTo prevent confidential details entered on our website from being intercepted by hackers, our entire website is encrypted by a Let's Encrypt ® SSL security certificate with 256-bit data encryption, SHA-256 signature hash algorithm, TLS 1.2 and HTTP/1.1 security protocols.

  The “padlock” icon which appears above in your browser address bar confirms that you are in fact viewing this website over a secure connection. Click that icon to view details about the SSL certificate installed on the website server.

This complies with all the very latest “best practice” online security standards heavily promoted by Google and required by online merchant payment gateways.


All websites use “cookies” which are a tiny file downloaded onto your computer to distinguish you from other visitors and to improve your browsing experience. Some cookies are “persistent cookies” which remain on your device for a specified time and are activated each time you visit this website. Other cookies are “session cookies” that are only stored temporarily and deleted when you close the browser.

  • As described in detail below, any information we gather on this website is strictly for our use only. It is not shared with any other entity, public or private, for any reason — period. We will never sell or give away any lists or other data and we do not purchase such information from other sources.

Shopping Cart Cookies

The shopping cart uses cookies to store and remember each item you add or delete from the cart. This is necessary for the website to function properly.

  • You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies, or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, then you may not be able to use the checkout section of our website.

3rd Party Visit Counter Cookies

We use Google Webmaster Tools to record each visit to our website, each page view and the period of time spent viewing each page. This helps us to identify popular pages vs those which are rarely viewed and, at times, the success or otherwise of advertising promotions. We can also see when an error page has been displayed, thus requiring our attention toward resolving the problem.

  • No personal information is gathered by visit counter cookies, other than IP address and internet service provider to distinguish each visitor.
  • None of this statistical information is shared with any third party.
  • You can instruct your browser to block 3rd party cookies.
