Privacy Statement

At SHAPE, we see the protection of your privacy to be of the highest importance. You can access and browse the information within the site and know that your personal information is safe and secure.

We do not automatically log personal data/information, nor do we link information automatically logged by other means with personal data about specific individuals.

When you look at our site, our Internet Service Provider (ISP) makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes:

  • your server address
  • the date and time of your visit to the site
  • the pages accessed and documents you downloaded
  • the site that directed or referred you to us, eg a search engine
  • the type of browser you used
  • your top-level domain name (eg .com, .au, .gov, .uk etc).

No attempt will be made to identify you or your browsing activity except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may produce a warrant to inspect our ISP’s logs.

We will only record your email address or other details you provide if you send us a message to request more information when using our contact form.

Your details will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided them and will never be added to any mailing list. We will not use or disclose them to anyone without your consent.


Cookies are packets of information that allows the SHAPE server to identify and interact more effectively with your computer.

When you access the SHAPE site, we send you a temporary session cookie that gives you a unique identification number. A different identification number is sent each time you use our web site. Cookies do not identify individual users, although they do identify a user’s internet browser type and your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

All users registered with our site utilise cookies to help with the login process. The cookies enable us to recognize your ID when you log on so that we can communicate with you and give you access to the pages that you are registered to view. If cookies are disabled within your browser, you may not have access to the full features of the SHAPE site.
