BCE System – Usage Conditions

Please carefully read the following Conditions related to the Book Canberra Excursions (BCE) system.

This document should be read in conjunction with any policies and information provided by individual national attractions.

Additional venue-specific information is available on each attraction’s website


The National Capital Educational Tourism Project (the NCETP) seeks to ensure all users of the BCE system are aware of the Disclaimer, and reserves the right to change this without notice.

While every effort is made to maintain the accuracy and currency of information on the BCE system, including information relating to programs and services offered by attractions, the NCETP cannot guarantee all content is current.

The NCETP accepts no responsibility for material on any external site to which the BCE system links.

To the extent permitted by law, the NCETP and the Australian Government disclaim all liability (including negligence) for all claims, losses, expenses, damages and costs a user may incur as a result of, or associated with:

Linked External Websites

The BCE website may contain links to other websites.

The NCETP is not responsible for the privacy practices of any other site and their privacy policy may differ.

NCETP has no direct control over the content of any linked websites, or changes that may occur to such content.

Links to external websites are provided in good faith, but it is the responsibility of the user to make their own decisions about the accuracy, currency, reliability and correctness of information contained therein.

Links to external websites do not constitute an endorsement or a recommendation of any material on those websites nor of any 3rd party products or services offered by, from or through those websites.

Users of links provided by the BCE website are responsible for their own knowledge and understanding of organisations hosting external sites.


This Privacy Policy should be read in conjunction with policies and information provided by individual attractions.

The NCETP seeks to ensure all users of the BCE system are aware of this Privacy Policy and reserves the right to change this without notice.

The BCE system follows the Australian Privacy Principles Guidelines issued by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.

The BCE system adheres to the Australian Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (the Privacy Act), which regulate how agencies collect, use, disclose and store personal information, including sensitive information, and how individuals may access and correct records containing their personal information.

In addition, the BCE system adheres to the Information Privacy Act 2014 (ACT) and the Territory Privacy Principles.

The BCE system may collect personal information such as name, company name, email address, invoicing address, phone number, school name, school address, teacher name, teacher contact email address and teacher contact mobile phone number.

Once the BCE system receives information it is in a secure environment.

Personal information stored within the BCE system will not be released unless permitted by law, or permission for its release is granted.

The BCE system will use and disclose personal information for the following purposes:

The BCE system stores personal information and other booking details in a secure offline server to help manage bookings information.

Contact details may be provided to the Department of Health or other authorities in compliance with COVID-19 regulations for contact tracing purposes, as required.

Contact details provided will not be added to any external mailing lists

By using the BCE system you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in the manner described and for the purposes set out above, and you warrant you will only provide contact details of others in accordance with the spirit of this Privacy Policy.

If you do not provide consent to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information for the purposes outlined above you will not be able to make bookings using the BCE system.

Cookies & Website Analytics

The BCE system uses ‘cookies’, as used by most major websites.

A cookie is a small text file the BCE system may place on your computer so it can remember your user preferences.

The cookie is stored on your machine, but it is not an executable program and cannot do anything to your machine.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of the BCE system.

When a web browser requests a file from a web server that sent a cookie, the browser sends a copy of the cookie back to the server, along with the request, so the server knows you have visited before and can coordinate your access to different pages on the BCE system.

A server cannot discover a name or email address, or anything about a user's computer, by using cookies.

Cookie information is neither stored nor collected by the NCETP.

The BCE system uses a range of analytics services which send website traffic data to servers offshore.

These services do not identify individual users, or associate your Internet Protocol address with any other data held by the NCETP for other purposes.

The NCETP uses reports provided by analytics providers to help it understand website traffic and webpage usage.

You can opt out of analytics if you disable or refuse the cookie, or disable JavaScript.

Clickstream Data

Clickstreams are paths a user takes when navigating the internet.

When you visit the BCE system servers record the following information for statistical purposes:

The NCETP examines this information to determine traffic through the server and to specific pages or applications.

To deliver better services we perform statistical analyses to establish priorities and allocate resources.

No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities, except in the event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect server logs.

Statistics and log files may be preserved indefinitely and used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches, and to ensure the integrity of information supplied by the NCETP.
