PRIVACY COMPLAINTS PROCESS
This policy sets out our approach to resolving complaints from individuals about the way we have dealt with their personal information and outlines what people can expect when they make a complaint.
Management of Privacy Complaints
Privacy complaints are managed by the Privacy Officer. The Privacy Officer will:
· Receive and acknowledge the complaint
· Seek further information from the complainant if necessary
· Thoroughly investigate the complaint
· Respond to the complainant with the outcome of the investigation
· Provide feedback to the relevant internal stakeholders.
PRIVACY COMPLAINTS PROCESS
1. Complaint Receipt
We ask that complaints be made in writing. The Privacy Officer may receive an oral complaint if he considers that making a written complaint would be impracticable or unreasonably onerous for the complainant. In written complaints, complainants should:
· Include sufficient contact details to enable us to identify them
· Clearly and succinctly state the nature of their complaints
· Include sufficient information for the Privacy Officer to understand the complaints
· Provide details such as what happened, when they became aware of it, and who was involved
· State which Privacy Principle they believe has been breached (if known)
· Outline the impact the event has had on them
· Include details of what they would like to see happen to resolve the complaints.
· Complaints can be emailed to [email protected] or posted to: Level 6, 10 Herb Elliott Avenue, Sydney Olympic Park, NSW 2127
· If a complaint is received from someone other than the individual involved, we will only proceed if we have evidence that the person submitting the complaint has authority to do so.
2. Complaint Acknowledgement
The Privacy Officer will acknowledge the complaint within five working days of receiving it.
3. Complaint Investigation
The Privacy Officer will investigate the concerns raised by the complainant. This may involve obtaining further information from the complainant, speaking with the relevant staff members, reviewing relevant documents or client files, and obtaining technical or legal advice. It is anticipated that in most cases, the duration of the investigation will not exceed 20 working days. If the investigation is likely to take longer than 20 days, the Privacy Officer will notify the complainant.
4. Complaint Outcome
The Privacy Officer will inform the complainant in writing as to the outcome of the investigation.
If the complainant remains dissatisfied with the response provided, he or she may wish to contact the Office of the Information Commissioner (The Privacy Commissioner). For more details, see http://www.oaic.gov.au/ or the Privacy Commissioner in your region.
5. Internal Feedback
Where appropriate, the Privacy Officer will provide feedback, including recommendations of process improvements, to the relevant internal stakeholders to ensure continued compliance with the applicable Privacy Principles.
