Privacy Policy

The ILSC has developed a Privacy Policy to protect your privacy.

Personal information collected by the ILSC is protected by the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012  (Cth) (Privacy Act). Personal information is any information or an opinion that identifies an individual and includes sensitive and health information.

The Australian Privacy Principles (APP) contained in the Privacy Act set out the ILSC’s obligations in relation to the collection, storage, use, disclosure, quality and security of personal information and access and correction rights of individuals in relation to their personal information.

The Privacy Policy is available in hard copy on request, or it can be downloaded here. It contains additional information about the ILSC’s responsibilities, your rights, the information that may be collected by the ILSC, and how it would be used.

The primary reason for collecting personal information from individuals and groups is to enable the ILSC to carry out its purpose to assist Indigenous people to acquire and manage land to achieve economic, environmental, social and cultural benefits. This purpose includes planning, funding, monitoring and evaluating our work. The kind of information we collect will depend on your relationship with the ILSC (e.g. as a member of an applicant group, trainee, employee, or on line user of the ILSC website). A personal information collection notice will be given to you setting out these uses at or close to, the time the ILSC collects any personal information.

All personal information collected from individuals will be securely stored by the ILSC and protected from unauthorised use or access. All reasonable steps will be taken to ensure information is accurate and up-to-date. Our Privacy Policy also provides a process for requesting access to your personal information and making a privacy complaint.

The purpose of this policy

Under the APP, the ILSC is required to have a clearly expressed and up-to-date policy about its management of personal information.

Privacy complaints

If you think the ILSC has breached the APP, you may contact our Freedom of Information Officer whose contact details are at the ‘How to contact us’ section of this Policy. Your complaint should include a brief description of your privacy concern, any action or dealings you have had with an officer of the ILSC to address your concern and your preferred contact details. If you provide your contact details, the ILSC’s Privacy Contact Officer will then contact you to resolve your concerns.

Alternatively, you can make a complaint to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) about your privacy concerns. The OAIC can investigate privacy complaints from individuals about Australian, ACT and Norfolk Island government agencies, and private sector organisations covered by the Privacy Act.

Before you can lodge a complaint with the OAIC, you will generally need to complain directly to the ILSC and allow 30 days for our response. If you do not receive a response (after 30 days), or you are dissatisfied with the response, you may then complain to the OAIC.

Complaints to the OAIC must be made in writing.

Privacy Impact Assessment Register

Under the Privacy (Australian Government Agencies – Governance) APP Code 2017 (Code), the ILSC is required to conduct privacy impact assessments for all high risk privacy projects. A project will be a high risk project if the ILSC considers that the project involves any new or changed ways of handling personal information that are likely to have a significant impact on the privacy of the individuals.

A register of privacy impact assessments conducted by the ILSC since the Code came into effect is below.

The ILSC updates the Privacy Impact Assessment register regularly. The register was last updated April 2023.
