We store information about you in computer systems and databases operated by us or the Educational Institution.

We take appropriate technical and organisational measures (including physical and electronic security) to safeguard personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information. Specific measures that we use include:

  • Restricting access to personal information where practicable;
  • Implementing two-factor authentication on all accounts by default;
  • Using industry-standard encryption to protect data in transit and at rest;
  • Building and maintaining a secure (private) network with no direct access between the internet and systems processing your data;
  • Using pseudonymisation techniques such as hashing email addresses, de-identifying names to reduce the risks when processing that data;
  • Demanding equivalent security and confidentiality measures from any third parties with which we do business;
  • Requiring all employees and contractors to comply with internal information security policies and keep information secure;
  • Monitoring and regularly reviewing our practice against our own policies and against industry best practice.

We cannot guarantee the security of any information that is transmitted to or by us over the internet. The transmission and exchange of information is carried out at your own risk. Although we take measures to safeguard against unauthorised disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that the personal information we collect will not be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

Who do we disclose your personal information to, and why?

We may disclose your personal information to Educational Institutions to provide our services to them. The handling of the information by an Educational Institution will be guided by that Educational Institution’s privacy policy and practices in accordance with the Privacy Act or applicable State.

Data breaches

A data breach occurs when personal or sensitive information, in any format, held by an entity is lost or subject to unauthorised access, modification, disclosure or other misuse or interference. The Notifiable Data Breaches (“NDB”) scheme under Part IIIC of the Australia Privacy Act 1988 establishes requirements for entities in responding to data breaches.

The NDB scheme requires the responsible entity to notify particular individuals and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (“OAIC”) if an ‘eligible data breach’ occurs. A data breach is ‘eligible’ if the breach is likely to result in serious harm (psychological, emotional, physical, reputational or other forms of harm) to any of the individuals to whom the information relates. A breach may be exempt from being defined as ‘eligible’ if the entity takes remedial actions prior to any serious harm occurring.

In the event of a data breach occurring, we will control the process of responding to the breach in accordance with the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017.

Your rights under the EU GDPR

We have processes in place to deal with Data Subject Rights (as that term is defined under the GDPR) requests. Our actions and responsibilities will depend on whether we are the controller or processor of the personal data at issue. Depending on our role as either a controller or processor, the process for enabling Data Subject Rights may differ, and are always subject to applicable law.

Under the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as a data subject you have the right to:

  • Access your data;
  • Have your data deleted or corrected where it is inaccurate;
  • Object to your data being processed and to restrict processing;
  • Withdraw consent to having your data processed;
  • Have your data provided in a standard format so that it can be transferred elsewhere; and
  • Not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing.
  • Access to and correction of your personal information

You may access or request correction of the personal information that we hold about you by contacting us. Our contact details are set out below.

We will respond to your requests to access or correct personal information in a reasonable time and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we hold about you remains accurate, and up to date. However, once data is transmitted through to any Educational Institution you recognise that we are limited in our ability to change, control or otherwise update such information. Should you wish to do so, you should contact the respective Educational Institution and request that they update or correct any personal information that you believe should be updated.

In some circumstances which are prescribed by the Privacy Act, such as where to do so might put a person at risk of harm or have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others, we may decline access to personal information.


If you have a complaint about the way in which we have handled any privacy issue, including your request for access or correction of your personal information, you should contact us. Our contact details are set out below.
