We understand that people are concerned about their privacy, and we abide by the National Privacy Principles in the Commonwealth Privacy Act 1988. Any personal information that we collect will only be used for the purpose for which it was provided, it will be kept securely, and we will not pass on your email address or other personal information.
Our contact form requires you to enter your name and email address so that we can respond to your enquiry. We will not use your email address for any other purpose other than to respond to your query or comment.
Subsequent to your enquiry, you will be contacted by email by a member of the Find & Connect team. In the course of this follow-up, we may need to collect personal information so that we can provide you with advice, support or a referral to other services. The type of personal information may include your name, age, gender, cultural heritage and information about where you were in ‘care’. All Find & Connect staff are required to keep any personal information collected confidential.
Use and Disclosure
The personal information we collect will be used to compile statistics that will guide our evaluation of service quality and improvement. The use of these statistics will not disclose any personal information about users of Find & Connect.
The Find & Connect team will only disclose your personal information to others with your consent, or if one of the exceptions under National Privacy Principle 2 is relevant (for example, in the unlikely circumstances that we believed that the disclosure of information was necessary to lessen or prevent a serious or imminent threat to an individual’s life, health or safety).
