PVET Institute will ensure that it respects the privacy of students, prospective students and employers by implementing the National Privacy Principles.

The National Privacy Principles (NPPs) in the Privacy Act (Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000) sets out how private sector organisations should collect, use, keep secure and disclose personal information. The principles give individuals a right to know what information an organisation holds about them and a right to correct that information if it is wrong.

PVET Institute will ensure that it operates consistently with the National Privacy Principles and only collects the personal information that is necessary for the conduct of our business, and that we will use that information in the manner for which it was intended.

Students will have access to all information we hold on them and the right to correct information that is wrong. PVET Institute will store and use the information appropriately and limit access to only those who have a legal reason to have access to that information, or whom the student has given permission.

Student information will not be provided to anyone else unless we have the permission from the student or are specifically allowed or required to provide the information by law.

If a third party requests staff or client information we will obtain written consent from the relevant staff or client prior to release of any information.

PVET Institute collects personal information solely for the purpose of operating as a Registered Training Organisation under the Australian Skills Quality Authority, administered by the Australian Federal Government who is the registered authority. The requirements of the registering authority may mean the release of your personal information for the purposes of audit.

While you are undertaking your training program, there will be times when PVET Institute and/or its Training Consultant, Business Development Consultant, Administration Officer may need to discuss your situation with others.
