WEBSITE COLLECTION NOTICE

The Website Collection Notice informs individuals about how AFTRS collects, stores, uses and discloses the information collected when using the AFTRS website. The collection notice also describes an individual’s choices on how AFTRS uses that information and provides guidance on how a person can access personal information about them held by AFTRS or seek correction.

PRIVACY IMPACT ASSESSMENT (PIA) REGISTER

A privacy impact assessment is a systematic assessment of a project that identifies the impact that the project might have on the privacy of individuals and sets out recommendations for managing, minimising or eliminating that impact.

As a Commonwealth agency, AFTRS is obliged to conduct a privacy impact assessment (PIA) for all high privacy risk projects. Under the Code, effective 1 July 2018, AFTRS must also maintain a register of all the PIA’s that it conducts. As part of the Information Publication Scheme, it must also publish its PIA register, or a version of the register, on the AFTRS website.

Note: There are no PIA’s registered with AFTRS at this time. A register containing any future PIA’s will be included here.
