Complaints about our handling of your privacy

What do these complaints relate to?

We collect personal information that is reasonably necessary for, or directly related to, one or more of our functions or activities under the legislation we administer.

We are bound by the Australian Privacy Principles which regulate how Australian Government agencies may collect, store, use and disclose personal information, and how individuals may access and correct information held about them.

We take steps to protect the personal information we hold against loss, unauthorised access, use, modification and disclosure, and against other misuse.

You are entitled to seek access to personal information we hold about you and request that we make corrections to that information.

If you are unhappy with the way we have handled your personal information, or if you are concerned we have breached our obligations under the Privacy Act 1988, you may lodge a complaint.
