Applicable laws

This website (excluding any linked third party sites) is controlled by the ACFE Board from its offices at Level 32, 35 Colins Street, Melbourne VIC 3000. By accessing this site, you accept that any disputes about this website or its contents are to be determined by the courts having jurisdiction in Victoria in accordance with the laws in force in Victoria (except any principle of conflict of laws inconsistent with this requirement).

Language translation

Selected pages of this website have the option of providing machine translations through Google Translate. Machine translation is the process whereby computer software translates text from one natural language into another. The software considers the grammatical structure of each language and uses rules and assumptions to transfer the grammatical structure of the source language into the translated language. Google Translate allows you to grasp the general intent of the original text, but it will not produce a polished translation equivalent to that produced by a professional translator. Translations provided by Google Translate therefore may not be accurate, and may contain incorrect, offensive, or misleading language.

If there are any discrepancies between the translated version of the website and the information presented in English on the website, the English version on the website is the authoritative version. Any individual or entity that obtains information from this translation service does so at his or her own risk and the ACFE Board will not be responsible for any damage or loss arising from the use or inability to use Google Translate.

Learning provided in English

The ACFE Board provides Google Translate as a convenience for learners and their families whose primary language may not be English. Use of Google Translate on this website does not imply that Learn Local organisations offer services in any language other than English.
