We sometimes collect information from third parties and publicly available sources when it is necessary for a specific purpose such as checking information that you have given us or where you have consented or would reasonably expect us to collect your personal information in this way.
How your personal information is held
Personal information is held in our Information Record System until it is no longer needed for any purpose for which it may be used or disclosed at which time it will be de-identified or destroyed provided that it is lawful for us to do so.
We take a range of measures to protect your personal information from:
misuse, interference and loss; and
unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure.
We may disclose your personal information for any of the purposes for which it is primarily held or for a lawful related purpose. We may disclose your personal information where we are under a legal duty to do so. Disclosure of your personal information to Wigg Plumbing places the organisation in a position of trust within the community and as such we seek to protect and uphold the privacy of individuals in accordance with the APPs.
Wigg Plumbing will not provide your personal information (including health or sensitive information) to other entities unless it is required under laws (such as through contractual agreements with the Commonwealth under the Aged Care Act of 1997), or it reasonably believes that the recipient of the information will not disclose the personal information derived from Wigg Plumbing in the course of normal duties being conducted. Where required by law, personal information disclosed to other sources will be de-identified.
There are a number of specific instances under which Wigg Plumbing needs to provide personal information to other agencies, bodies and individuals. The following are typical examples:
where Wigg Plumbing is authorized to provide another agency (Government Department), with personal information to enable care to be delivered to a client;
where for legal reasons, Wigg Plumbing is obligated to provide information under a Court Order or other legal enforcement authority such as the Adult Guardian – the Privacy Act 1988 provides strict guidelines for the release of information under these circumstances;
where we provide de-identified information to funding agencies and Government Departments to meet our contractual requirements (de-identified information cannot be linked back directly to an individual);
where we maximize the efficient delivery of our care through engaging specialists who work on our behalf to improve the quality of life for our clients (client consent is sought prior to the release of this information)
where a client is incapable of providing or communicating consent and personal information is required to be given to their substitute decision-maker (under the Guardian Administration Act) or responsible person (under the Privacy Act) for the necessary provision of appropriate care or treatment or for compassionate reasons.
For the most part, the release of personal information may only occur with written consent of either you, or your substitute authority.
Wigg Plumbing recognizes that clients have the right to withdraw consent to release their personal information at any time. This is to be done (preferably) in writing.
Under contractual arrangements with various funding bodies and Government Departments, Wigg Plumbing is also obliged to provide a range of different reports. Some reports provide de-identified information on the amount of care provided and the types of clients that Wigg Plumbing supports and some reports include the client name | address | date of birth/
Wigg Plumbing will identify individuals by a number of unique identifiers internally assigned by the organization. Wigg Plumbing may, however, retain a record of other external agency personal identifiers that are required to provide services, coordinate with other care agencies, or otherwise fulfil service, operational or reporting obligations.
Use of contractors
From time to time, Wigg Plumbing may use contractors to provide aspects of care and support to clients. Contractors are required to abide by the same confidentiality and privacy requirements as Wigg Plumbing employees and this is clearly stated within non-disclosure clauses in their contracts.
Keeping information up to date and accurate
Wigg Plumbing makes every effort to keep your personal information up to date and accurate. This may mean that at times our staff will review or test the personal information held and request verification as to its accuracy.
In order to provide clarity and a record of the request it is preferred that written requests for access to personal information not already available are forwarded to our Privacy Officer as per the details listed under the section Further Questions and Assistance of this Policy.
All requests are to be in writing and there is a need to verify identification. Wigg Plumbing will take all reasonable steps to assess and correct any personal information that is believed to be inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date.
If you find that personal information that we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, you can ask us to correct it by contacting our Privacy Officer as above.
If we have disclosed personal information about you that is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, you can ask us to notify the third parties to whom we made the disclosure and we will take such steps (if any) as are reasonable in the circumstances to give that notification unless it is impracticable or unlawful to do so.
