Privacy and security statement

Security of information

Queensland Treasury and Trade is committed to protecting your privacy by complying with the eleven Information Privacy Principles (IPPs) as detailed in the Information Privacy Act 2009.

Queensland Treasury and Trade will comply with the IPPs in relation to the collection, storage, use and disclosure of personal information, which you as a client may supply to us. We will only collect information if it is necessary for us to provide a service to you, or maintain our relationships with you. Any information we collect will not be used or disclosed other than for:

  • the purpose for which it was collected
  • the purpose that you would reasonably expect
  • the purpose required or permitted by law
  • the purpose authorised by you.

Information collected on Treasury and Trade websites

When you visit a Queensland Treasury and Trade website, our web measurement tools and server logs record information for statistical purposes only, that may include:

  • the type of browser, computer platform and screen resolution you are using
  • the name of your internet service provider (ISP)
  • your traffic patterns through our site such as:
    • the date and time of your visit to the site
    • the pages you accessed and documents downloaded
    • the previous page you visited prior to accessing our site
    • the referring web page.

Our web measurement software may use cookies when collecting this information.

No attempt is or will be made to identify your personal details except in the event of an investigation when a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect our server logs and web measurement tools.

How we treat emails

As a Government Agency any official e-mail correspondence sent to our site will be treated as a public record and will be retained as required by the Public Records Act 2002 and other relevant regulations.

Our website support staff may monitor e-mail messages; however, your name and address details will not be added to a mailing list, nor will we disclose these details to a third party without your consent unless required by law to do so. Queensland Treasury and Trade has introduced e-mail filtering software which results in any messages with inappropriate material being blocked. The system generates an automatic message advising the originator and addressee that the message has been blocked.

If you have any queries about your dealings with this website, in the first instance please contact Queensland Treasury and Trade's web team at
