All Australian health services are required to comply with legislation and regulations which protect the use and disclosure of personal information. Brain Training Australia™ complies with Australian privacy legislation and standards safe-guarding your information. At Brain Training Australia™, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards in protecting the privacy of our service users.
We ensure that all personal and health information pertaining to clients and staff remains confidential. Brain Training Australia™ complies with all legislation relating to privacy and confidentiality including, for example:
- The Health Services Act 2016 (WA)
- The Privacy Act 1988 Privacy Act (WA)
- The Freedom of Information Act 1992 (FOI Act) WA
- The Health Records Act 2001 (WA)
The existing provisions of the Mental Health Act 2014 still apply. We cannot use or disclose personal or health information without the consent of the individual, except if it is required, authorised or permitted under law. Staff are bound by a strict code of confidentiality.
There are two primary reasons we require such information.
- To supply services to our members,
- To enable us to communicate with members
Under no circumstances will we sell members’ information. The only time information is disclosed to a third party is when it is related to the provision and/or improvement of services or if we are required to do so by Australian Law. In both cases these entities meet with strict guidelines to preserve members’ privacy.
