We will need to verify your identity before giving you access to information.
There is no fee for making the initial request but in some cases we may apply an administrative charge for providing access to your personal information in response to a request. In certain circumstances we're allowed to deny your request, or limit the access we provide. If that is the case, we'll write to you explaining why you cannot access the requested information.
9. How to make a complaint
You may contact us (using the Contact Us at section 10 of this document) to notify us of any privacy complaint you have against us, including if you think that we have failed to comply with the Australian Privacy Principles (APP) or any binding APP code that has been registered under the Privacy Act. We are committed to acknowledging your complaint in a prompt manner.
While we hope that we will be able to resolve any complaints you may have, if you're not satisfied with our handling of your matter, you can refer your complaint to external dispute resolution. We suggest you do this only once you've first followed our internal complaint processes set out above.
