  • Openly allow an individual(s) access to the personal information held by IPS and the right to correct the information where necessary.
  • Not use an identifier that is assigned by a Commonwealth government agency.
  • Only transfer personal information overseas if that country and/or organisation has similar privacy protection safeguards in place.
  • Not intentionally collect sensitive information about an individual unless the person has consented.
