Information access and privacy – Did you know?

Did you know that you can access information and the services we offer online? You can view information we routinely release to the community on our publication scheme or find out more about our administrative access arrangements on our website. We proactively or administratively release information, unless there is a good reason not too, while protecting and respecting personal information. We may not release certain sensitive information where the Right to Information Act (RTI Act) and Information Privacy Act (IP Act) recognise doing so would be contrary to the broader public interest, for example certain law enforcement information.

Did you know you can find out how we handle your personal information?

The IP Act recognises the importance of protecting the personal information of individuals. It contains a set of rules or ‘privacy principles’ that govern how Queensland Government agencies collect, store, use and disclose personal information. You can read about how we meet our obligations under the IP Act here.

You can find out more about right to information and information privacy here or you can visit the Office of the Information Commissioner’s website at www.oic.qld.gov.au
