"Personal information" means 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 a person whose identity is apparent, or can be reasonably ascertained, from the information or opinion.
MCFS will, from time to time, collect and use personal information. The types of personal information collected and the purposes for which that personal information will be used will depend on the circumstances.
MCFS will not disclose personal information of an individual to third parties except:
- where third parties appointed by MCFS require access to personal information held by MCFS to perform services (in which case MCFS requires these contractors to keep that personal information confidential and not to use or disclose it for any purpose other than the purpose of performing those services);
- within MCFS (that is, to related bodies corporate) in accordance with the law;
- where MCFS is required or authorised by law to disclose personal information, for example to law enforcement agencies; or
- with the individual's consent.
Any person may seek access to personal information which MCFS holds about that person and MCFS will provide access to that information in accordance with the Act. There are certain exemptions which may apply to the provision of that information. MCFS may charge an administration fee for granting access to information.
If you have any questions or concerns about MCFS collection, use or disclosure of personal information, contact MCFS.
