Our Commitment to Privacy
We fully support the ‘National Privacy Principles’ found in Schedule 3 of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).

You can obtain more information on request about the way we manage the personal information we hold. If you seek any further information please contact us in one of the ways set out below.
Collection (DiA Program participants)
In the course of providing access to this web site and other activities associated with the delivery of the Discovery in Action® program, we will collect and hold personal information, such as your work contact details.
We only collect personal information for purposes which are directly related to our functions and activities; for example to notify program participants of activities to complete in between program sessions, sending our ‘DiA Monthly Leadership Tips newsletter’ and further information related to the content covered in the program.
We will only collect personal information by lawful and fair means, from your employer upon commencement of a Discovery in Action® program, or when we email or phone you to respond to a request from you for information.
We take steps to ensure that the personal information we collect is accurate, up to date and complete. These steps include maintaining and updating personal information when we are advised by individuals that their personal information has changed, and at other times as necessary.

We will not give it to other government agencies, organisations or anyone else unless one of the following applies:
- the individual has consented
- the individual would reasonably expect, or has been told, that information of that kind is usually passed to those individuals, bodies or agencies
- it is required or authorised by law
- we reasonably believe it is necessary on health or public safety grounds
- it is reasonably necessary for the enforcement of the criminal law or of a law imposing a pecuniary penalty, or for the protection of public revenue.
Access and Correction
If you ask, we will tell you what personal information we hold about you, and what we do with it.
