In accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles, Core Industry Training will collect, use, maintain, release and destroy personal information provided by our students in a manner which remains consistent with these principles and retention requirements of its registering body. This includes all personal information, whether recorded in a material form or not, about an individual whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from such data.
This policy covers how personal information is handled, including:
- How personal information is collected, used and disclosed
- The personal information’s accuracy
- How securely personal information is kept and destroyed
- An student’s general right to access personal information
Core Industry Training will protect, as much as is reasonably possible, all personal information about an individual whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from such data.
Core Industry Training will not disclose any student’s personal information collected to any other person, body or agency unless:-
- The student has consented to and is aware of the information being passed on;
- The use of the information is required or authorised under law; and
- If Core Industry Training believes on reasonable grounds that use of the information for another
purpose other than what it was collected for is necessary to prevent or lessen a serious and
imminent threat to the life or health of the individual concerned or another person.
A student is entitled to access their personal information that is stored by Core Industry Training unless they are refused under the provisions of a law of the Commonwealth that provides for such access. Should a student wish to view their personal information and records, they can apply to Core Industry Training for access.
Should Core Industry Training deny this request, the student will be advised in writing the reason why. Core Industry Training will commit to working with a mutually agreed third party to release data if required.
