Securing your information

IGF holds your personal information securely through physical and electronic means. We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is not subject to unauthorised access or use, lost or misused.

Accessing your information

You have a right to access your personal information, subject to some exceptions allowed by law (including where providing you with access would unreasonably impact another person’s privacy). If you would like to do so, please let us know. You may be required to put your request in writing for security reasons or provide some form of identification (such as a passport or driver’s licence). We reserve the right to charge a small fee for searching for and providing access to your information.

Help us ensure we hold accurate information

We take reasonable precautions to ensure that the personal information we collect, use and disclose is accurate, complete and up-to-date. However, the accuracy of that information depends to a large extent on the information you provide to us. We therefore recommend that you let us know if any information that we hold about you is incorrect or out of date.
If you have concerns about how we are handling your personal information, would like to complain about a breach of the Australian Policy Principles or wish to have your personal information deleted, please contact us. We will endeavour to respond to your concerns as soon as is practicable.
