What is personal information?
It is information or opinions that can identify you. This includes your name, job seeker id, date of birth, phone number, email address, tax file number or health information.
There are many ways we collect information from you and validate the information we hold. We collect information when you fill out a form with us, when you call us or if we call you, or if you visit our website or dropped into one of our sites.
Types of information we hold
The types of information that we collect and hold about you could include information provided to us by our funders, or collected by us, for the purpose of conducting services we are contracted to do, and to deliver our services and products. This might include identity information such as your name, postal or email address, telephone numbers, and date of birth.
How we use your information
We collect, store and use our customer’s personal details so that we can help you and provide you with our services. When you tell us personal information we only store what’s necessary. We use your personal information to identify you and to consider your eligibility and requests for services. We like to share news about our services with you and may contact you and offer you services or to let you know about changes. We may write to you, call, email or text you. You can tell us how you’d prefer we contact you. Our funders also provide us with information about you to help us provide you with our services. Sometimes we need to share your personal information, and like most service providers, the Privacy Act and Privacy Principles set out what we can and can’t do with your information to protect you. We may need to share your personal information with Government Departments in relation to providing you with our services, or other services, or if required by law. When we use or share your personal information we always follow our values and ‘Do What’s Right’. This means we apply the 13 Privacy Principles and we do what the law tell us to do. We may use your personal information to conduct customer research, either internally or through subcontractors, or to meet our service obligations. We may contact you with marketing material but you can tell us if you don’t want this.
Storing your information
We store your information electronically and sometimes on paper. We may also store your information in cloud systems which may be based within Australia or overseas. We’ll always make sure that where this happens the Australian Privacy Principles are upheld.
Do we collect personal information electronically?
We may collect information from you electronically, for instance through internet browsing.
Each time you visit our website, we collect information about your use of the website, which may include the following: the date and time of visits; which pages are viewed; how users navigate through the site and interact with pages (including fields completed in forms and applications completed); location information about users; information about the device used to visit our website; and IP addresses.

- We may store government-related identifiers such as your Centrelink Reference Number. We will not use or disclose this information unless it’s required by law.
- If there is an actual or potential privacy breach we immediately have it escalated and investigated by our Privacy Officer. We comply with our reporting obligations if it’s a notifiable data breach.

What happens when we no longer need your information?

The legal stuff
Privacy and confidentiality matters allow for very little discretion. We apply the Privacy Amendment Act 2017, the Privacy Act 1988 and the 13 Australian Privacy Principles in all our dealings with customers and team members. Unauthorised use or disclosure of privacy or notifiable data breaches will be treated as a serious matter. We may investigate any complaint and may take disciplinary action or terminate any team member who hasn’t done the right thing with privacy. This policy applies to Campbell Page Limited ABN 49341812398. Let us know if you need further information.
Cross border information
We may store your information in cloud or other types of networked or electronic storage. We’ll always make sure that where this happens the Australian Privacy Principles are upheld.
Accessing your personal information
We‘ll always give you access to your personal information unless there are certain legal reasons why we can’t. You can ask us to access your personal information via our website, through our offices or by calling 1300 139 920. We’re not always required to give you access to your personal information. Some of the situations where we don’t have to give you access include when:
- we believe there is a threat to life or public safety;
- there is an unreasonable impact on other individuals;
- the request is frivolous;
- the information wouldn’t be ordinarily accessible because of legal proceedings;
- it would prejudice negotiations with you;
- it would be unlawful;
- it would jeopardise taking action against serious misconduct by you;
- it would be likely to harm the activities of an enforcement body (e.g. the police);
- it would harm the confidentiality of our commercial information.
If we can’t provide your information in the way you’ve requested, we will tell you why in writing. If you have concerns, you can make a complaint to our Privacy Officer though one of the contact methods described below.
How we correct your information
Contact us if you think there is something wrong with the information we hold about you and we’ll try to correct it if it’s:
- out of date;
- irrelevant; or
If you are worried that we have given incorrect information to others, you can ask us to tell them about the correction. We’ll try and help where we can — if we can’t, then we’ll let you know in writing.

Need more help?
If you still feel your issue hasn’t been resolved to your satisfaction, then you can raise your concern with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner:
The Commissioner can investigate complaints and has the power to award compensation in appropriate circumstances.
Anonymity and pseudonymity
If you have general enquiry type questions, you can choose to do this anonymously or use a pseudonym. We might not always be able to interact with you this way, however, as we are often governed by strict regulations that require us to know who we’re dealing with. In general, we won’t be able to deal with you anonymously or where you are using a pseudonym when:
- it is impracticable; or
- we are required or authorised by law or a court/tribunal order to deal with you personally.
What do we do with government-related identifiers?
In certain circumstances we may be required to collect government-related identifiers such as Centrelink Reference Number. We will not use or disclose this information unless we are authorised by law.
Secure online transactions
If you make a donation via our website, we process your credit/debit card details securely using an accredited internet payment security system. With the combination of SSL encryption on our website and a secure browser at your end, we take all reasonable measures to ensure that your credit/debit card and personal information are protected when you donate online. We also recommend that you take appropriate security precautions when accessing the internet via public Wi-Fi networks or shared computers.
