The personal information provided in these applications is required for grant processing and assessment purposes. If you provide any personal information about another individual as part of a grant application, it is your responsibility to ensure that they are informed and have given their prior consent. NETS Victoria publishes the names of successful grant recipients, partners and host venues and the grants they have received to provide transparency and accountability in the use of public funds.

When you visit this website, anonymous information about your visit is recorded to assist with website administration. This statistical information does not identify individual users or tell us anything about you specifically, but it does record how visitors use our site. This information will not be used to identify individuals unless a law enforcement agency executes a warrant to inspect website activity logs. This data is collected purely for statistical purposes (such as finding out the most popular searches and the times of day the website is used most and least) without identifying individual users.
This privacy statement does not extend beyond the NETS Victoria website. When visiting other sites, we recommend that you read the privacy statement of that site to familiarise yourself with its privacy principles.
