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.

A privacy data breach is unauthorised access or disclosure of personal information or loss of personal information. To report a suspected data breach, complete a Privacy Data Breach Report Form and email the completed form to [email protected]. For more information see the Privacy Data Breach Response Process.

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 [email protected] 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.
