Accessing and amending your personal information

The Information Privacy Act 2009 (IP Act) allows you to apply for access to documents containing your personal information. 'Personal Information' is defined as "information or an opinion, including information or an opinion forming part of a database, whether true or not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an individual whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion."  If you are making an IP Act access application, you will only receive documents containing your own personal information.

The IP Act also allows you to make an application to have your personal information amended if you believe it is:-

  • incomplete
  • inaccurate
  • out of date or
  • misleading.

Please refer to Making an Application for more information about this process.
