When you provide us with Personal Information, it will be accessible to our clinical team and other healthcare providers (as required) involved in your healthcare. We do not share, sell, rent or trade your Personal Information with any other parties, groups or organisations.
Irrespective of any laws relating to keeping confidential or private any information that you provide to us, your privacy is important to us. We will not disclose your Personal Information to any third parties unless permitted by this Policy, or you have otherwise authorised us to do so, or where disclosure is required by law, or where we in good faith consider it to be necessary or appropriate to institute any form or legal or quasi legal proceedings against you.

We may charge you for the reasonable costs of retrieving, providing the information and if applicable, correcting the information.
We use all reasonable endeavours to comply with the Privacy Act, where it applies; save where we are permitted and do contract out of it or where you agree that we are not required to comply with the Act (where it would otherwise apply).
