Privacy and Confidentiality Statement

Purpose and scope

This Privacy and Confidentiality Statement is intended to assist persons to understand our practices for the collection, use, storage, disclosure and related handling of personal information.

Reform APS is committed to managing personal and confidential information held or collected by us in ways which fully respect the confidential basis on which it is provided.

What is personal information?

Personal information is information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable, whether the information or opinion is true or not and whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not. Personal information provided to Reform APS may include Information relating to individuals, their academic credentials, contact information and demographic details.

How do we collect personal information?

Reform APS collects personal information directly from supporters via correspondence and telephone calls, text messages, contact via our website or social media, as well as hard copy and digital petitions and surveys.

Why do we collect personal information?

From time to time Reform APS collects personal information about our supporters to more effectively prosecute our campaign objectives.

Reform APS advocates for a landscape in which psychologists equally value each other, and where all psychologists are recognised as equals by the wider system in order to deliver equity to the public.

It is critical that we know who our supporters are in order to best represent and reflect their views and to be able to contact them when the APS conducts a membership poll, vote or AGM.

Security of personal information

Reform APS is careful with personal information and secures it from unauthorised access, use or disclosure to the best of our ability.

Information collected by Reform APS is stored locally in Australia. Any personal information that Reform APS holds that is no longer required will be disposed of safely and securely.

Reform APS uses all reasonable endeavours to protect personal information from misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, modification or loss.

Despite reasonable endeavours, Reform APS is unable to completely ensure the security of any personal information transmitted to us.  All personal information disclosed by you to Reform APS is at your own risk.

Reform APS will remove all personal information previously collected from an individual if a written request to do so is submitted to apsreform@gmail.com
