ACCESS TO INFORMATION
The Australian Privacy Principles give you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with those principles and the Privacy Act.
We will take all reasonable steps to correct any information you find inaccurate. Should we deny access and or refuse to correct your personal information, we will provide you with reasons that will be based on the grounds provided by the Privacy Act. All requests for access to personal information should be made e-mail to email@example.com.
We place a high priority on effectively dealing with any complaints you might have about breach of your privacy. We prefer that complaints about breaches of the Privacy Act and the Australia Privacy Principles are made or confirmed in writing so that we can be sure about the details of the complaint. Generally, we will only accept complaints from an individual who believes an act or practice of us has interfered with their privacy and may have breached one of the Australian Privacy Principles.
A complaint should identify whether it is about:
- the collection, use or disclosure of personal information;
- the security or storage of personal information;
- the accuracy of personal information;
- a refusal to give access to, change or delete personal information.
Our Privacy Officer will normally deal with privacy complaints. If the Privacy Officer is involved in the conduct the complaint is about, the complaint will be dealt with by an alternative officer appointed by us who was not involved in the complaint.
We will attempt to confirm with the complainant:
- their understanding of the conduct relevant to the complaint;
- their understanding of the Australian Privacy Principles relevant to the conduct;
- what they expect as an outcome.
We will inform the person making the complaint:
- whether we will conduct an investigation;
- the name, title and contact details of the investigating officer.
After we have completed our enquiries, we will contact the complainant, usually in writing, to advise the outcome and invite a response to our conclusions about the complaint. If a response is received, we will assess it and advise if we have changed our view.
If the complainant is unsatisfied with the outcome, we will advise further options including, if appropriate, review by the Privacy Commissioner within the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
