8. Security measures and user responsibilities 

We employ commercially reasonable measures to safeguard the confidentiality and integrity of personally identifiable health information you share. However, no security measures can claim absolute perfection or imperviousness, and we cannot guarantee the complete security of your information.

While we take diligent precautions to ensure user data security and user protection, inherent risks may persist. The Internet, in general, can be susceptible to insecurity intermittently, and therefore, we cannot assure the security of user data beyond what is reasonably practical. We commit to our role in protecting your information, but it is equally crucial for you to exercise vigilance in safeguarding your information.

Furthermore, we must recognise that we lack control over the actions of individuals with whom you or any other user may choose to share information. Hence, exercising caution in granting access to others and judiciously selecting the information you share becomes imperative.

10. How we protect your data

We prioritise the security and confidentiality of your information and have implemented robust measures to ensure its protection. Our commitment to safeguarding your data includes the following key practices:

  1. Encryption: We use advanced encryption technologies to secure the transmission and storage of your data, ensuring that it remains confidential and protected from unauthorised access.
  2. Access Controls: Strict access controls limit access to your information only to authorised personnel who require it for specific purposes. This helps prevent unauthorised use or disclosure.
  3. Secure Infrastructure: Our systems and infrastructure are designed with security in mind, incorporating industry best practices to create a secure environment for your data.
  4. Regular Audits: We conduct regular security audits and assessments to identify and address potential vulnerabilities, maintaining the integrity of our protective measures.

While we take these proactive steps to protect your data, you need to play a role in maintaining security. Please review our user responsibilities section to understand how you can contribute to keeping your information safe.

11. How to access, modify, delete or challenge the data collected 

If you would like to know if we have collected your data, how we have used your data, if we have disclosed your data and to whom we disclosed your data, if you would like your data to be deleted or modified in any way, or if you would like to exercise any of your other rights under the Privacy Act, please contact:

Attention: The Director


It is important to us that your Personal Information is up to date. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Information is accurate, complete, and up to date. If you find that the information we have is not up to date or is inaccurate, please advise us as soon as practicable so we can update our records and ensure we can continue to provide quality services to you.
