We will only collect personal information from you or your authorised representative where such collection is necessary and directly related to our functions and activities.
Sometimes we may need to collect personal information from a third party or a publicly available source, but only if you have consented to such collection or would reasonably expect us to collect your personal information in this way, or if it is necessary for a specific purpose such as conducting a credit check or police check.
We only use personal information for the purposes for which it was given to us, or for purposes which are directly related to one of our functions or activities, and we do not give it to government agencies, private sector organisations or anyone else unless one of the following applies:
We take steps to ensure that the personal information we collect is accurate, up to date and complete. These steps include maintaining and updating personal information when we are advised by individuals that their personal information has changed, and at other times as necessary.
We take steps to protect the personal information we hold against loss, unauthorised access, use, modification or disclosure, and against other misuse. These steps include password protection for accessing our electronic IT system, securing paper files in locked cabinets and physical access restrictions.
When no longer required, personal information is destroyed in a secure manner.
If an individual requests access to the personal information we hold about them, or requests that we change that personal information, we will allow access or make the changes unless we consider that there is a sound reason under the amended Privacy Act or other relevant law to withhold the information, or not make the changes.
If we do not agree to make requested changes to personal information the individual may make a statement about the requested changes and we will attach this to the record.
Individuals can obtain further information about how to request access or changes to the information we hold about them by contacting us (see details below).
You can complain to us in writing about how we have handled your personal information. The NEC Privacy Officer will investigate your complaint and will endeavour to provide a written response within thirty (30) days of receipt of the complaint setting out NEC's decision.
If you are dissatisfied with NEC’s response to your complaint you can take your complaint to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (“OAIC”). The Australian Information Commissioner may then investigate and attempt to conciliate the matter.
If you have any questions in relation to privacy, please contact us on 131 632 between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday. Alternatively you can write to :Private Bag 1111 Mulgrave 3170 Victoria or email to : firstname.lastname@example.org
