NSW privacy legislation require NESA to protect the privacy of all its stakeholders. This includes students, teachers and staff, parents and carers, and members of the public. Understand how we protect the personal and health information of stakeholders.
NESA is required to comply with the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (PPIP Act) and the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 (HRIP Act).
The information protection principles and health privacy principles found in these laws govern how NESA deals with personal and health information. This includes rules about the collection, use, storage and disclosure of such information.
See NESA's Privacy Management Plan to find more information about compliance with NSW privacy legislation.
Protecting your privacy
This policy applies to all staff, including permanent, temporary, casual and seconded staff, as well as contractors and consultants engaged by NESA.
NESA aims to promote a strong privacy culture by:
- complying with requirements under the PPIP and HRIP Acts
- implementing a privacy management plan
- providing privacy awareness briefings to NESA staff
- continually improving privacy management
- regularly reviewing NESA's Privacy Management Plan.
NESA will not disclose your personal or health information without your consent unless it is required or permitted by law.
NSW privacy legislation gives individuals the right to request an internal review if they have a complaint about the management of their personal or health information.
See NESA's Privacy Management Plan to find out how to make a privacy complaint. This plan also contains information about how to access or amend personal and health information held by NESA.
For any privacy related issues, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where it is appropriate and the complainant agrees, NESA will attempt to resolve privacy complaints informally according to NESA's complaint handling policy.
