Privacy and Personal Information

Privacy and Personal Information

The University collects, stores, and uses the personal information of many individuals, including students and prospective students, alumni, employees and job applicants, sub-contractors, and volunteers. The University also holds personal and health information of clients of the University Health Clinic.

The University upholds and respects the privacy of all individuals, and supports the aims of privacy legislation by balancing the right of individuals to control their personal information with the University’s need for information to deliver educational services and provide effective governance. Information about how we do this can be found in the Privacy Management Plan.

Information for University staff on how to deal with requests for personal information from outside the University (i.e. a third party) can be found in this fact sheet - How to respond to a request for personal information.

If you want to access or amend your personal information, or make an enquiry about the University’s handling of personal information, please contact the Privacy Officer by emailing privacy@scu.edu.au or calling 02 6620 3841.

If you believe that the University has breached your privacy, you can make an informal complaint by contacting the unit concerned. If your complaint cannot be resolved informally, you can apply for an ‘internal review’ of the conduct that you believe has breached your privacy. More information about internal reviews can be found in the Privacy Management Plan.
