We are committed to protecting your privacy. We have obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 that govern how we collect, use, disclose; and hold personal and sensitive information, and how individuals can access and correct their personal information.
You may make a submission to us without identifying yourself.
We will collect any personal information and/or sensitive information that is included in your submission. By including personal information and/or sensitive information in your submission, you consent to us collecting, using and disclosing that information in accordance with this notice. If you provide somebody else's personal information, we may contact them to provide them with a privacy notice.
We may use any personal and/or sensitive information included in your submission for the purpose of developing policies and programs in relation to the subject of the consultation.
A submission may be provided by the department to its Minister, Parliamentary Secretary and other government agencies and will be made publicly available, including on our website (which means that it may be viewed by individuals in Australia or overseas), unless at the time you provide the submission you notify us that you do not wish us to provide the submission.
We reserve the right not to publish any submission, or any part of a submission, which, in our view, breaches applicable laws, promotes a product or a service, contains offensive language, or does not substantively comment on matters within the scope of review. Our publication of a submission is not an indication of the Commonwealth's endorsement of any views or comments contained in that submission.
In making a submission, you provide the Commonwealth with a permanent, irrevocable, royalty-free licence to use, reproduce, adapt, and communicate your submission both online and in any other related documents (for example, in a future discussion paper or report).
