YOUR PRIVACY is important to us

Privacy Policy

TAE Institute takes the privacy of our participants very seriously, and we will comply with all legislative requirements.  This includes the Privacy Act and Australian Privacy Principles (2014)

In some cases as required by law and as required by the Standards for RTOs we will need to make your information available to others.  In all other cases we ensure that we will seek the written permission of the participant.

The thirteen Privacy Principles are defined below:

Principle 1 – Open and transparent management of personal information.  The object of this principle is to ensure that TAE Institute entities manage personal information in an open and transparent way.

Principle 2 – Anonymity and pseudonymity.  Individuals may have the option of not identifying themselves, or of using a pseudonym, when dealing with

TAE Institute in relation to a particular matter.

Principle 3 – Collection of solicited Personal Information.

TAE Institute must not collect personal information unless the information is reasonably necessary for  TAE Institute’s business purposes.

Principle 4 – Dealing with unsolicited personal information.  If  TAE Institute receives personal information, TAE Institute must, within a reasonable period after receiving this information, determine whether or not we would have collected the information under Australian Privacy Principle 3, and if not, we must, as soon as practicable but only if it is lawful and reasonable to do so, destroy the information or ensure that the information is de-identified.

Principle 5 – Notification of the collection of personal information.  Requires

TAE Institute  to notify our clients, staff and participants of any additional information that we collect about them, and further advise them of how we will deal with and manage this information.

Principle 6 – Use or disclosure of personal information.  The information that

TAE Institute holds on an individual that was collected for a particular purpose,  TAE Institute must not use or disclose the information for another purpose unless the individual has consented.

Principle 7 – Direct marketing.  As TAE Institute holds personal information about individuals, we must not use or disclose the information for the purpose of direct marketing.

Principle 8 – Cross-border disclosure of personal information.  Where

TAE Institute discloses personal information about an individual to an overseas recipient, TAE Institute must take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that the overseas recipient does not breach the Australian Privacy Principles.

Principle 9 – Adoption, use or disclosure of government-related identifiers.

TAE Institute must not adopt a government related identifier of an individual as its own identifier of the individual except when using identification codes issued by either the State based regulators, or the department of Innovation with regard to the Unique Student Identifier.

Principle 10 – Quality of personal information.

TAE Institute must take such steps (if any) as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that the personal information that TAE Institute collects is accurate, up-to-date and complete.

Principle 11 – Security of personal information.  If an TAE Institute entity holds personal information, the entity must take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to protect the information.

Principle 12 – Access to personal information.  As TAE Institute holds personal information about an individual, TAE Institute must, on request by the individual, give the individual access to the information.

Principle 13 – Correction of personal information.  As TAE Institute holds personal information about individuals and should we believe that this information is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading; or the individual requests the entity to correct the information; TAE Institute must take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to correct that information.

Working with Children

While we do NOT accept people under the age of 18 in our assessment programs.

Should this change we will comply with all Federal and State working with Children legislation such as the NSW Child Protection (Working with Children) Act 2012 No 51.

A list of all relevant legislation is available from the Federal Police Website:

Further information on the Working with Children’s Check is available from TAE Institute’s CEO, but this effectively means that we will need to have all staff who come in contact with people under the age of 18, such as trainer/assessors, administration staff or clerical staff must be cleared as not being a risk to the health and safety of minors.

This is done through a submission to the appropriate government agency, and until the response is received, we cannot allow the person being reviewed to conduct or interact with the minors unsupervised.

The contents of this statement may be altered at any time, at our discretion.
