The NSW Government's privacy practices in collecting, storing, using and disclosing personal and health information are regulated by the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (NSW) and the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 (NSW).

These laws have privacy principles that tell us:
  • what information we can collect and how we collect it
  • how we store and protect personal and health information
  • how you can find out what information we hold and correct it if it is wrong
  • how we can use and disclose your information including special protection for health and other sensitive information
  • how you can complain about breaches of your privacy.

This privacy notice applies to the Aboriginal Housing Office (AHO). The AHO complies with NSW privacy legislation when collecting and managing personal and health information. The AHO is part of the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and the AHO also complies with the Department’s privacy management plan. The information we collect from you or from an authorised third party will be held by the AHO. It will be used to deliver services and to meet our legal responsibilities. We may also use your information within the Department as a whole, to plan, coordinate and improve the way we provide services. The Department is also legally authorised to disclose information to outside bodies in certain circumstances.
