  1. Personal information means information or opinions about a person from which that person is reasonably identifiable. Personal information includes sensitive information.

Collecting your personal information

CER may collect personal information where this is required for the work we undertake. We will only collect personal information by lawful and fair means and primarily directly from you (for example, through our interaction with you or your use of our website). Wherever practicable any personal information is de-identified.

The type of personal information collected may depend on your interaction with us.

Use of your personal information

CER will keep your personal information as long as we are legally obliged to keep it, or until the need for the personal information has passed. At that point it will be destroyed, deleted or de-identified.

CER’s use of your personal information will depend on our interaction with you. For other individuals, personal information may be collected to respond to enquiries or comply with other legal obligations.

We may also require limited disclosure to contractors we engage to act for us or on our behalf, such as IT service providers, in order to enable them to provide their services. All contractors engaged in this fashion are required to comply with the privacy laws.

Storage and security of your personal information

CER takes all reasonable steps to keep your personal information secure, safe and protected from misuse, interference, loss or unauthorised access. Your information is either stored on secure servers (electronic records) or is protected in controlled facilities (hard copy records). In addition, our staff and the contractors who provide services related to our information systems are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us.
