Privacy statements

A Privacy collection notice (sometimes known as a privacy statement) is to inform the individual of the intended use of their personal information. A clear and comprehensive Privacy Collection Notice allows the University to use and disclose personal information in the way in which it was intended, and mitigates risk of non-compliance with privacy obligations.

A collection notice must include:

  1. The identity and contact details of the department/division which is collecting the information
  2. The primary purpose for which the information is collected
  3. To whom generally (the types of individuals or organisations) the information will be routinely disclosed to
  4. Any law that requires the particular information to be collected
  5. The main consequences (if any) for the individual if all or part of the information is not provided
  6. The fact that the individual is able to gain access to the Personal Information they have provided; and
  7. A statement of the University's obligations to protect personal information, and information about the University's Privacy Policy.

Item 4 may be omitted if there are no specific Laws that require the collection. 
Item 5 may be omitted if the consequences of not providing all or part of the information is nil or minimal.
