Your privacy is important to us. We are committed to ensuring that information we hold about you is held securely and that your confidentiality is protected.

This Policy explains how we treat information that we hold about you. It details the type of information we collect, how we may use that information, to whom we allow access and how we protect it.  RRBN reserves the right to change the terms of this Policy.

If you have any questions relating to this Policy, or you would like the current version (in the event that since the issue of this version the Policy has been changed), please contact us.

Collection

We collect personal information as part of our ordinary function.  Personal information is information or an opinion about an individual whose identity is apparent from the information.

The types of personal information we collect in supplying our services include (but are not limited to) contact details, educational qualifications, employment information, and some sensitive information such as membership of professional organisations.

We will endeavour to collect most of this information directly from you but, if you have applied for recognition of overseas qualifications, we may also collect some of it from:

overseas government departments and authorities;
overseas educational institutions;
overseas hospitals and health providers;
other overseas organisations and institutions;
our related entities; and
your past and/or present employer.

There may be other persons and entities from whom ,from time to time, we may collect your personal information.

Where we collect information about you from someone else we will, wherever possible, make sure you know the information listed below unless telling you of these matters would pose a serious threat to the life or health of any individual.

When collecting personal information we will take reasonable steps to let you know:

Our identity and how to contact us;
The fact that you can gain access to your information;
The purpose for which the information is being collected;
To whom we disclose this information;
Any law that requires information to be collected; and
The main consequences (if any) for you if information is not provided.
Where practicable we will provide you with this information before or as soon as possible after we receive your personal information.  We will generally do this by issuing you with a Privacy Statement when we first collect your personal information.  The Privacy Statement relates not only to the information we collect on that occasion but also to any information we subsequently collect.

Of course, you can elect not to provide us with your personal information but this may affect our ability to undertake your assessment or provide you with accurate information.
