Your Privacy | Goldfields Library Corporation

The Goldfields Library Corporation (GLC) values an individual’s right to privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information it collects and uses. As a public sector organisation, the GLC is required to comply with the Victorian Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic) (amended) (Act).

Privacy protections are embodied in ten Information Privacy Principles (IPPs) set out in Schedule 1 of the Act. The IPPs govern the handling of personal information by Victorian public sector organisations, local councils and contracted service providers.

The GLC has a Privacy Policy and Privacy Statement that outline how we collect and handle personal information.

All GLC staff are provided with information about the Act and the IPPs to assist them in their work practises and ensure the appropriate and respectful handling of personal information.

It is important to be aware that the GLC discloses personal information to third parties such as its contracted service providers for the purposes of administrative functions. It is the GLC’s intention that service providers are required to comply with the Act and IPPs. In some circumstances, the GLC may transfer personal information outside Victoria, such as to servers of third party organisations.
