Privacy policy

WDA ensures mechanisms in place to demonstrate that decisions and actions relating to privacy and confidentiality comply with federal and state laws. All staff, volunteers, students and Board members are aware of this policy during orientation.

All staff are provided with ongoing support and information to assist them to establish and maintain privacy and confidentiality.

The privacy of personal information is defined by legislation in the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012 which amends the Privacy Act 1988 and the Australian Privacy Principles (APP) which replaced the National Privacy Principles (NPP) on 12 March 2014. The APPs are legally binding principles.
