- The purposes for which We collect, hold, use and disclose personal information
We may collect information about you in orer to provide services to you or because We are required or authorised by law to collect it. For example we may collect health information about you in order to influence treatment and care. You have a right to refuse to share personal information with Us, however this can mean that We are unable to provide you with appropriate treatment. If We collect and hold your personal information for a primary purpose, We will not use or disclose the information for a secondary purpose unless:
- you have consented to the use or disclosure of the information;
- you would reasonably expect Us to use or disclose the information for the other purpose and the other purpose is related to the first particular purpose;
- the use or disclosure of the information is required or authorised by or under an Australian law or a court/tribunal order;
- a permitted general situation exists in relation to the use or disclosure of the information by Us; or
- We reasonably believe that the use or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary for one or more enforcement related activities conducted by, or on behalf of, an enforcement body (and, if We use or disclose personal information in accordance with this point, We must make a written note of the use or disclosure.).
If We hold personal information about an individual, We must not use or disclose the information for the purpose of direct marketing, unless We collected the information from the individual and the individual would reasonably expect Us to use or disclose the information for that purpose, and We provide a simple means by which the individual may easily request not to receive direct marketing communications from Us and the individual has not made such a request to us.
If an individual ‘opts out’ of receiving marketing materials, individuals may still be contacted for the purpose of providing services, sending accounts and appointment reminders.
We will not give or disclose personal information to third parties without obtaining the individual’s express consent. This includes sharing the personal information with other health practitioners who may be involved in the individual’s care.
In some situations, it may be necessary to share personal information outside the organisation. Such situations include but are not limited to:
- Where We are required by law to disclose the information (e.g. statutary reporting)
- To provide necessary follow-up services and support
- To address liability indemnity arrangements with insurers, medical defence organisations and lawyers
- For the defence of anticipated or existing legal proceedings
- How you can access your personal information that We hold and seek the correction of such information
We will always give you access to your personal information unless there are certain legal reasons why We cannot do so. If we cannot provide your information in the way you have requested, we will tell you why in writing. If you have concerns, you can complain by emailing email@example.com. If you believe there is something wrong with the information, for example if you think that the information We hold is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can update your details. If you are worried that We have given incorrect information to others, you can ask us to tell them about the correction. We will correct this if We can or We will notify you if We are unable to change the details. You can ask us for access to your personal information that We hold by sending us an email to email@example.com. If We cannot resolve any request with you internally, you can make a complaint to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), see below.
- How you can complain about a breach of the Australian Privacy Principles, or a registered APP code (if any) that binds Us, and how We will deal with such a complaint
If an individual feels that We have breached our obligations in the handling, use or disclosure of their personal information, they may raise a complaint. We encourage individuals to discuss the situation with one of Our representatives in the first instance, before making a complaint. The complaints handling process is as follows: The individual should make the complaint including as much detail about the issue as possible, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will investigate the circumstances included in the complaint and respond to the individual as soon as possible (and within 30 calendar days) regarding Our findings and actions following this investigation. After considering this response, if the individual is still not satisfied they make escalate their complaint directly to the Information Commissioner for investigation: Office of the Australian Information Commissioner www.oaic.gov.au Phone: 1300 363 992 When investigating a complaint, the OAIC will initially attempt to conciliate the complaint, before considering the exercise of other complaint resolution powers.
- Which overseas recipients and countries are We likely to disclose personal information to
We may need to share some of your information with organisations outside Australia. For example, in the course of our accounting and marketing activities We will generally need to share your details with our accounts, payment, marketing and tracking software providers who are located in the USA and elsewhere. We may store your information in cloud or other types of networked or electronic storage. As electronic or networked storage can be accessed from various countries via an internet connection, it is not always practicable to know in which country your information may be held. If your information is stored in this way, disclosures may occur in countries other than those listed. Overseas organisations may be required to disclose information We share with them under a foreign law. In those instances, We will not be responsible for that disclosure.
