Our commitment to you
Cerebral Palsy Alliance respects and upholds your rights to privacy protection under the Australian Privacy Principles, as outlined in the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012. This regulates how we collect, use, disclose and hold your personal information.
We are committed to best practice to ensure your privacy is protected and respected.
How we collect and use your personal information
CPA collects information about clients for the purpose of planning an individualised service. We only collect information with your consent. Some information we collect is for the purpose of meeting government requirements. Reports to government contain only de-identified data. We are open and transparent about the way in which your information is held and used.
As a client or family member, you have the option to have your information recorded under a pseudonym.
We seek your assistance in keeping your information accurate, up-to-date, complete and relevant.
How we hold your information
We employ high standards of IT security to prevent unauthorised access, misuse or loss of your information.
Disclosure of your information
Sharing your information between client services staff occurs only on a need-to-know basis. Access to sensitive information (e.g. child protection matters) is subject to higher levels of restriction. You are able to customise your options for levels of access to your information by non client services staff (e.g. marketing communications). Please contact your Client Relationship Manager for details.
Sharing your information with external parties occurs only within strictest protocols and in line with legislation. Your personal information will not be shared externally without your permission, unless required by law (e.g. matters of child protection).
For questions about access and corrections to your information, please contact your Client Relationship Manager.
