Our staff are only provided with or have access to the information that is necessary for them to carry out their functions. All staff are bound by confidentiality requirements.
Personal information will be used only for the purposes described in the Information Collected section above. Your personal information will only be disclosed to third party organisations or individuals with your consent, or if it is required by or authorised by law.
There may be a need or requirement to disclose some or all information we collect to contractors and agents of Health-e-mines, nongovernment organisations, law enforcement agencies, courts or other public sector bodies.
The Personal Information Protection Act permits the disclosure of 'basic personal information' (that is, name, address, date of birth and gender) that is collected in conjunction with the provision of a service to other public sector bodies for data quality purposes.
Some de-identified personal information we have collected may be used in research, statistical analysis, state or national reporting, awareness programs, public statements or training, but not in a way to compromise the protection of personal information.
Personal information in written submissions on policy matters or matters of public consultation may be disclosed in reports that are made public, unless the submission was submitted and/or accepted on a confidential basis.
