When you complete the NavigateMe tool, UNSW will collect and hold personal information relating to you. Personal information collected at the University of New South Wales ("UNSW") is handled in accordance with the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (NSW) ("the Act"). These Terms and Conditions describe the ways in which UNSW
We take all reasonable steps to ensure that the information we collect about you is stored securely. We are required by law to retain records for certain periods of time depending on the type of record. We have appropriate systems and policies in place to protect your information from loss, unauthorised access and misuse.
In addition to collecting the information you provide directly through completing the NavigateMe tool, the University will also utilise some background data relating to you via the information you have previously provided to the University, such as your student number, course, age and gender.
If you do not wish for us to collect certain information about you, you need to tell us.
Use and Disclosure
Your personal information will be used by the staff at Student Life and Learning at UNSW for the purpose of identifying trends and patterns in relevant issues identified by you and other students and for directly related purposes in ways that you would reasonably expect. Reports that are generated using information provided by you will contain information that is de-identified and will not assess individual circumstances.
It is not intended that the personal information you provide through the NavigateMe tool will be disclosed to any recipients outside of UNSW. However, information may be shared with external agencies (for example, with system developers for the purpose of modifying and improving the NavigateMe tool) in the future in a de-identified manner. In general, information provided will be analysed according to trends and cohorts rather than on an individual basis so that privacy and confidentiality is maintained.
UNSW may be required to disclose some personal information to Courts or Tribunals, or to State or Commonwealth government agencies to comply with other laws; for example for mandatory reporting to agencies such as the Department of Human Services. Your personal information may also be required as evidence in court if the University is subpoenaed.
The University may disclose personal information in exceptional circumstances if it is considered imperative for reasons of health and safety.
We may use your personal information to contact you regarding satisfaction surveys that help us to evaluate and improve our services.
We will seek your consent prior to the use or disclosure of your personal information for purposes other than those listed above.
The provision of information to UNSW for use of the NavigateMe tool is voluntary. No law requires you to provide any personal information to UNSW for this purpose. If you do not complete the NavigateMe tool, then it will not have any implications for your enrolment or progression through your program.
Access to your information
You may have access to the information you provide to UNSW through the NavigateMe tool upon request in writing to the Student Life and Learning Team on campus. You will need to provide proof of identification.
Access to your personal information may be declined in special circumstances, such as where giving access would put you or another person at risk of harm.
By engaging with NavigateMe you agree to receive emails from NavigateMe from time to time. These emails include invitations to participate in surveys, join our UNSW Advantage Program or similar programs and updates relating to www.navigateme.unsw.edu.au.
