In most situations we will provide you with access to the information we hold about you. We will process all requests as quickly as possible.

In accordance with the National Privacy Principles, access may be limited where:

  1. in the case of personal information other than health information—providing access would pose a serious and imminent threat to the life or health of any individual; or

  6. providing access would reveal the intentions of the organisation in relation to negotiations with the individual in such a way as to prejudice those negotiations; or
  7. providing access would be unlawful; or
  8. denying access is required or authorised by or under law; or
  9. providing access would be likely to prejudice an investigation of possible unlawful activity; or
  10. providing access would be likely to prejudice:
