Henry Parkes Institute (HPI) has adopted the following Privacy Policy because we recognise your right to expect that other people will treat your personal information as private. This Privacy Policy covers HPI’s treatment of personally identifiable information that we collect or hold. Like many other organisations, HPI must comply with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) and Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) when dealing with personal information.

The information we collect

HPI will collect certain information about you, such as your name, address, and contact details when you register with us. We may also collect this and other specific types of personal information necessary for the particular product or service you request from us and during the course of dealing with you, for example when you register for testing or training with HPI. Where practicable, the purpose for which we are collecting that personal information will be made clear at the time of collection, as will the details of any law which requires us to collect particular information. People can generally visit the websites of HPI without revealing who they are or divulging any personal information. HPI will not collect any personal information about visitors to the website, except when such visitors knowingly provide it. If you provide us with personal information through the HPI’s website, we may log your usage of HPI’s sites for the purposes described below.


How we use your information

HPI may use your personal information for the purposes disclosed at the time of collection, or otherwise as set out in this Privacy Policy. We will not use your personal information for any other purpose without first seeking your consent, unless authorised or required by law. Generally, we will only use or disclose your personal information as follows:

  • to provide the products, services or information requested from HPI, including providing you with products such as training;

  • to register you for events, promotions or competitions or to conduct training, assessments or testing;

  • to assist us to make HPI’s sites, services and products more valuable to our clients;

  • for direct marketing of products or services and to keep you informed of new developments we believe may be of interest to you. If we contact you in this way without obtaining your prior consent, we will provide you with the opportunity to decline any further marketing communications.

Access to your information

You can access your personal information held by HPI by contacting HPI. We will provide you with access unless we are legally authorised to refuse your request. We reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee for providing such information. If you wish to change any personal information, which is incomplete, inaccurate, or out of date, please contact us. After receiving notice from you, we will take reasonable steps to correct such information. If you wish to have your personal information removed from our records, please let us know and we will delete that information wherever practicable. We may refuse your request to access, amend or delete your personal information in certain circumstances. If we do refuse your request, we will provide you with a reason for our decision and, in the case of amendment, we will include a note with your personal information that you have disputed its accuracy.

Internet security

HPI will take reasonable steps to keep secure any personal information which we hold and to keep this information accurate and up to date. Personal information is stored in a secure server or secure files. The internet is not always a secure method of transmitting information. Accordingly, HPI cannot accept responsibility for the security of information you send to or receive from us over the internet for any unauthorised access or use of that information.

Making a complaint regarding a breach of the Australian Privacy Principles, or registered APP code

If you believe HPI has breached any of the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) or a registered APP code (if any) that binds the entity, you can make a complaint to HPI directly. Alternatively, you can make a complaint directly with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner by going to for contact details.

Disclosing personal information to overseas recipients

HPI has not, and will not disclose personal information to overseas recipients.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

HPI may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. We suggest that you visit our website regularly to keep up to date with any such changes.
