Responsibility and Authority
Staff and Contractors
i. Ever Young Training collects and releases information about its staff and contractors which a business of this type would normally be expected to collect. This includes but is not limited to resumes, qualifications, medical records related to absences (as required by our SOPs), financial records and performance reports. Information is collected and released in the normal course of business.
To enable us to fulfil our responsibilities as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Ever Young Training will collect, use, store, and disseminate personal information, as defined by the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998, in a manner consistent with the Information Protection Principles contained within that Act and those requirements as outlined for RTOs.
The information on Learners of training are collected through enrolment forms and assessment records. Ever Young Training protects personal information about Learners from misuse or loss. Only staff who require Learner information to provide services or to process information are permitted access.
Personal information is stored in Ever Young Training’s training record management systems. These systems are password protected with defined levels of access. Learner information that is collected from someone other than the Learner, or employer, the Learner will be notified and advised the circumstances for the collection.
Information is released to authorised parties in person, in writing, by telephone, by fax, by email and by reports. This information may be released to the Learner themselves, employers, and government agencies. Should information be required to be released to an additional source, who has previously not been nominated, consent is sought from the individual.
Who will see or have access to personal information
Learner related reports we generate from personal information, combined with information gathered, are forwarded to the authorised parties and copies are forwarded to employers and the Learner as required, unless permission to do so has been restricted or revoked. Learners may be entitled to receive a copy of the information in some circumstances.
Unless we are required to provide personal information to others by law, by court order or to investigate suspected fraud or other unlawful activity, personal information gathered will only be seen or used by persons working in or for Ever Young Training and on a strictly ‘need to know’ basis. That is, unless the information is directly related to the reasonable completion of their duties, such information will not be disseminated
Our information systems and files are kept secured from unauthorised access and our staff and contracted agents/ service providers have been informed of the importance we place on protecting privacy and their role in helping us to do this, and are contractually bound to honour such privacy. We do not keep credit card details.
Personal Information Disclosure
Subject to any legal restrictions, Ever Young Training is willing to advise any person, internal or external to the company, on what personal information we hold about them if such a request is made. For non-employees or training Learners there may be some cost to the party in our providing this information if the request is complex or requires detailed searching of our records.
If a party believes there are errors in our records, they are encouraged to let us know so we may investigate and correct any inaccuracies.
Request copies of information
All requests for copies of information or files must be in writing to:
- Email – [email protected]
- Mail – 2c/1 Tika Street, Parnell, Auckland, 1052
(Please allow 21 working days for information to be provided)
What if a person has a complaint about the handling and collection of their personal information?
A complaint about information privacy indicates Ever Young Training’s procedures, staff or quality of service associated with the collection or handling of personal information will be investigated. Ever Young Training will be efficient and fair when investigating and responding to information privacy complaints.
