10.Access and Complaints

  1. Overriding principles

At all times, the conduct under this Policy will be governed by the following principles:

  • all requests for access or any complaints will be treated seriously;

  • all requests or complaints will be dealt with promptly;

  • all requests or complaints will be dealt with in a confidential manner; and

  • your request to access your personal information, or any complaints that you make, will not affect your existing obligations or affect the commercial arrangements between you and the Company.

    1. Form of Access

The Company will provide access by allowing you to inspect, take notes of or receive copies or print outs of the personal information that the Company holds about you.

You can make your request in writing to the Privacy Manager at

In making your request, you will have to provide proof of your identity (for example, driver’s license or other appropriate identification). This is necessary to ensure that personal information is provided only to the correct individuals and that the privacy of others is not undermined.


  1. When will Access be denied?

Access will be denied if:

  • the request does not relate to the personal information of the person making the request;

  • providing access would pose a serious and imminent threat to life or health of a person;

  • providing access would create an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others;

  • the request is frivolous and vexatious;

  • the request relates to existing or anticipated legal proceeding;

  • providing access would prejudice negotiations with the individual making the request;

  • access would be unlawful;

  • denial of access is authorised or required by law;

  • access would prejudice law enforcement activities;

  • access discloses a ‘commercially sensitive’ decision making process or information; or

  • any other reason that is provided for in the National Privacy Principles.

Where possible, the Company will favour providing access. It may do so by providing access to the appropriate parts of the record or by using an appropriate ‘intermediary’.

  1. Time

We will take all reasonable steps to provide access within 30 days of your request. In cases where the request is not complicated or does not require access to a large volume of information, we will take all reasonable steps to provide that information within 14 days.

  1. Costs and charges

The Company has a right to charge you a reasonable fee for providing access.  For example:

  • photocopying charges;

  • delivery cost of information stored off-site; and

  • access to electronic databases.

The charge may include the cost of our professional time.

  1. Complaints

If you have provided us with personal information, you have a right to make a complaint, have it investigated and dealt with.  The Company tries to resolve complaints at the local level if possible. 

If you wish to make a complaint, please contact us

The Company will keep a record of your complaint and the outcome.

The Company is unable to deal with anonymous complaints.  This is because it is unable to investigate and follow up such complaints.  However, in the event that an anonymous complaint is received, we will note the issues raised and try to resolve them appropriately.


11.Right to Review

The Company reserves the right to review, and if necessary, revise or amend the terms of this policy.
