Cookies

Airservices Australia may use cookies to help personalise your online experience whilst on our website or web-related services. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies are assigned to and can identify you uniquely. A cookie can only be read by a web server that issued you the cookie.

Cookies cannot run programmes or deliver viruses to your computer. Their primary use is to provide a convenience by saving you time. For example, if you personalise our page or register with our services, a cookie will help the Newsroom remember you on your subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, and so on. When you next return to the Newsroom or web-related service, the information you previously provided is retrieved so you can easily use our features that you had customised.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers will accept cookies automatically, but you can usually set your browser to decline cookies. However, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to experience the full interactive features of the Newsroom or its related services.
