What will happen to your personal information?
The University has obligations under the Privacy and Personal Information Act, 1998 (NSW) (PPIP Act) to ensure that private and personal information is kept safe and is only disclosed where authorised. Staff who are aware of another person's personal information must comply with the PPIP Act by only collecting relevant information and limiting access to authorised persons.
However, under certain circumstances, NSW privacy laws do allow that personal information may need to be disclosed where there is a serious and imminent threat to the health or life of a person, or for law enforcement purposes.
