StudyAdelaide is committed to protecting the privacy of any personal information it collects about you. This Privacy Statement describes StudyAdelaide’s general privacy practices that apply to personal information that we collect, use and share about consumers and individuals we deal with.
StudyAdelaide operates in compliance with the Government of South Australia's Information Privacy Principles Instruction (IPPS), a copy of which can be obtained here.
WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION
The IPPS set down by the Government of South Australia defines personal information as “information or an opinion, whether true or not, relating to a natural person or the affairs of a natural person whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion”.
In addition to IPPS’ definition of personal information, the GDPR defines personal information as “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.”
