Privacy Policy

With the introduction of the new Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) from 12 March 2014 and the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Bill 2016, we have revised our Privacy Policy to ensure our continued strict compliance with Australian Privacy laws. We want to make sure you are aware of these changes, in particular how we use and protect your personal information and that of your patients.

What are the new Australian Privacy Principles?

The APPs replace the National Privacy Principles and Information Privacy Principles. Containing significant updates, the new Principles aim to better protect the public’s personal information and all organisations must comply with them.
