The Privacy Act contains 13 Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) which are rules about how we may collect, use, disclose and store personal and sensitive information, and how you may access and correct records containing your personal or sensitive information. We are committed to protecting your privacy in accordance with the APPs.

RDA WBB only uses and/or discloses information for the purposes for which it was collected (the primary purpose), unless an individual has consented to another use.
