Privacy Statement

Personal information held by third parties

币游注册Under the Privacy Act we are required to take measures to ensure that when your personal information is to be held by a third party, that the third party complies with the same privacy requirements applicable to the department.

We have privacy clauses in all of its legal documents, including funding contracts and deeds, services contracts and various other ad-hoc arrangements. This is to ensure third parties we deal with are required to handle personal information in accordance with the APPs.

Use and disclosure of your personal information

The purpose for collecting your personal information is important as it restricts how we can use and disclose your personal information, unless an exception in the Privacy Act applies.

Unless an exception applies, the corporation will:

  • Only use or disclose your personal information for the primary purpose it was collected, and
  • Notify you of this purpose at the time of collection, or as soon as practicable after collection.

We will only use or disclose your personal information for another purpose if you consent to that secondary purpose, or where you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose it for that secondary purpose (and the secondary purpose is related to the primary purpose).

AgriFutures Australia may disclose your personal information to a third party if the disclosure is necessary to prevent or lessen a serious and imminent threat to the life, health or safety of you or another person and it is unreasonable or impracticable to obtain your consent.

AgriFutures Australia may disclose your personal information to overseas recipients only in accordance with the Privacy Act. Overseas recipients are likely to be located in numerous countries.

AgriFutures Australia will not otherwise disclose your personal information without your consent unless required or authorised by law.

Sensitive information 

If AgriFutures Australia holds any sensitive personal information about you, that information will only be used and disclosed by AgriFutures Australia if you have consented to such use and disclosure (your provision of that information will be taken to be consent), and will only be used and disclosed for the purpose that it was provided by you.

How to access and seek correction of personal information

Individuals have a right to request access to their personal information and to request its correction if it is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading. Requests for access to or correction of personal information should be directed to our Privacy Officer.

We will take reasonable and practicable steps to provide you access and/or make a correction to your personal information within 30 calendar days, unless we consider there is a sound reason under the Privacy Act or other relevant law to withhold the information, or not make the changes.

币游注册If we do not provide you access to your personal information, or refuse to correct your personal information, where reasonable we will:

  • Provide you with a written notice including the reasons for the refusal
  • Provide you with information regarding available complaint mechanisms
  • At your request, take reasonable steps to associate a statement with the personal information that you believe it to be inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading.

币游注册Otherwise, if we correct your personal information, at your request, we will also take reasonable steps to notify other agencies or organisations (bound by the Privacy Act) of the correction; if we have previously disclosed your personal information to those agencies or organisations.

How to make a complaint

You can make a complaint if you believe we have breached the APPs or mishandled your personal information. Complaints should be directed to our Privacy Officer whose details are provided below.

Privacy breaches can be caused by a variety of factors, affect different types of personal information and give rise to a range of actual or potential harm to individuals, agencies and organisations. Consequently, there is no single way of responding to a privacy breach. Each breach will need to be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. All complaints and alleged privacy breaches will be investigated by the privacy officer and the complainant will be advised of the outcome.
