At BNW, the privacy of our staff and the people we deal with is very important to us. Much of the information that BNW collects in order to provide the services that it does, is “personal information”.
The personal information you provide will be accessed by BNW staff strictly for the purposes stated at time of collection. The information will be disclosed to State and Australian Government agencies where required by law, and to contractors engaged by BNW to perform services on its behalf. Where personal information is to be provided to contractors, BNW will require that confidentiality agreements be first entered into.
Disclosure of Personal Information to Other Parties
Under the Guiding Ethical Principles, BNW will not disclose personal information for any purpose other than what has been advised at time of collection, unless:
- BNW has obtained your explicit consent, or
- the information is required by law, or
- in the exceptional circumstance that withholding information would likely result in a serious threat to the health, safety or life of yourself, another individual, individuals or the general public.
All staff are members of the BNW community and as such are required to respect each individual’s right to privacy.
