3. Personal Information & Sensitive Information

A reference to “personal information” means any information or opinion about you from which your identity is apparent or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion regardless of whether the information or opinion is:

  • true or not; or

  • recorded in a material form or not.

Personal information can also include sensitive information. “Sensitive information” means information or an opinion (that is also personal information) about matters such as your racial or ethnic origin, religion, political persuasion, membership of a trade or professional association or trade union, sexual orientation or practices, criminal records, or your health, genetic or biometric information. We only hold and collect sensitive information where it is necessary for the purpose for which it is being collected and with your consent unless the collection is required or authorised by law.


4. Application of this Policy

We collect a variety of information from individuals, some of which may be personal information. This Privacy Policy explains the types of information we collect and what we do with that information.

This Policy applies to personal information we receive or collect from or about you. This may occur when you:

When you provide Everlight Radiology with personal information, you consent to Everlight Radiology using, handling and processing your personal information for the purposes and in the ways outlined in this Policy or such other purposes as we may communicate to you from time to time.

You do not have to provide us with your personal information, but if you do not provide us with the personal information we need, we may not be able to provide our services or assistance to you, or on your behalf, or to process your application, enquiry or request, and you may not be able to enjoy the full benefits of our website or our services.


4.1 What kinds of information do we collect?

The types of personal information we collect will depend on what activities you are engaging in or the type of product, service or other activity used or requested by you.

We collect personal information that is necessary to manage our relationships with our clients, employees, service providers and other stakeholders and to assist us in providing our services and other functions and activities. The types of personal information commonly collected for these purposes include:

  • identification and contact information (e.g. name, age, date of birth, address, phone number, email address etc.);

  • employer details;

  • Medicare provider numbers;

  • country of residence;

  • enquiry, information request or complaint details;

  • your IP address for your interaction with various parts of our Everlight Radiology Website. Your IP address is the identifier for your computer / site when you are using the internet;

  • educational qualifications, employment history and other employee data in connection with a job application or expression of interest; and

  • employee or contractor details to include in their personnel files.

In certain circumstances, we may also be required or permitted by law, court or tribunal order to collect certain personal information about you. Where required to do so, we will notify you in accordance with relevant privacy legislation when we collect your personal information and for what purpose.

We only collect sensitive information about you with your consent and if it is necessary for, or directly related to, our functions or activities, except where we are otherwise required or permitted by law to collect, use or disclose it.

We may also collect some statistical information about visitors to the Everlight Radiology Website (for example, the number of visitors, pages viewed, your type of browser and geographic location, types of transactions conducted, time online and documents downloaded, how you came to the site, and information that will help us trouble-shoot problems, analyse our resources and improve our services).

We use this information to evaluate our website performance and continually improve our services. Importantly, we do not store any identifying information in any cookies on your computer.

  • acknowledge that your personal information is collected for the purpose of evaluating your application for employment by us and, if you accept employment with us, the assessment of your continued employment by us, and the administration, monitoring and management of your employment by us, and the processing of your remuneration and any PAYG tax obligations; and

  • acknowledge that a failure by you to provide the requested personal information will have a detrimental effect on our ability to give your employment application proper consideration.

5. Disclosure of your Personal Information

Any personal information provided to us may be disclosed, if appropriate, to other entities in order to facilitate the purpose for which the information was collected. Such entities generally include:

  • third-party service providers for the purpose of enabling them to provide a service such as (but not limited to) payroll, superannuation administration, IT service providers, data storage/processing, IT security, web-hosting and server providers; debt collectors, maintenance or problem-solving providers; security services; credentialing service providers; professional advisory (including legal, accounting, financial and business consulting); mailing house and delivery services; HR Service providers; and banking, payment and insurance providers;

  • any applicable or relevant regulator or third party for the purpose of legislative or contractual compliance and/or reporting;

  • any related entities of Everlight Radiology; or

  • other entities if you have given your express consent.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties in the following circumstances:

  • where we are under a legal or regulatory obligation to do so (for example, to a court or tribunal in response to a legal request, to a subpoena or to the Australian Taxation Office), or for purposes of monitoring, meeting or reporting on our obligations under applicable privacy legislation, or to protect the rights and interests, property, or safety of Everlight Radiology, our employees and contractors, our clients, members and users, or others;

  • if all, or substantially all, of the assets of Everlight Radiology are merged with or acquired by another party, in which case your personal information may form part of the transferred or merged assets.

Where possible, we will inform you, at or before the time of collecting your personal information about other types of organisations to whom we may, with your consent, disclose your personal information. Prior to such disclosures, Everlight Radiology will take all reasonable steps to satisfy ourselves that:

  • the organisation has a commitment to protecting your personal information; and

  • where necessary, you have consented to such disclosure.

From time to time, and where permitted by law, these parties may reside outside of Australia or New Zealand including in the United Kingdom. Our contracts with these parties generally include an obligation for them to comply with Australian privacy law (or, as applicable, New Zealand privacy laws) and this Privacy Policy. However, if you are in Australia or New Zealand, you acknowledge that, by agreeing to the disclosure of your personal information to parties located outside of Australia or New Zealand, we will no longer be required to take reasonable steps to ensure the overseas recipient’s compliance with the Australian privacy law and the NZ privacy law in relation to your personal information and we will not be liable to you for any breach of the Australian privacy law or the NZ privacy law by these overseas recipients. On this basis, you consent to such disclosure of your personal information to other entities located outside of Australia and New Zealand as described in this section.


5.1 Direct Marketing

From time to time we may use your personal information to contact you about, among other things:

  • particular Everlight Radiology products and services being offered to Everlight Radiology members / users which we believe may be of interest to you;

  • changes to our organisation or our services; or

  • your use of Everlight Radiology’s Website or services.

We will generally only do this with your prior consent (where practical or required by law) and we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such communications at any time. Direct Marketing from Everlight generally takes the form of emails or telephone calls.

Every directly addressed marketing communication sent or made by Everlight Radiology will include a means by which you may unsubscribe (or ‘opt out’) of receiving further marketing communications. You may also instruct us at any time to remove any previous consent you provided to receive marketing communications from us. Requests should be directed to us via the contact details provided in the 'Contacting us' section of this policy.

If you request not to receive direct marketing or market research information, please note that we will still contact you to provide you with relevant information in respect of your ongoing health care. For example, we will continue to send you relevant statements, invoices, reminders, notices, etc.


5.2 Links to Third Party Websites

Our website may contain links to the websites of other entities. If you click on such links, you will be transferred to the website of those third-party entities. We have no control over, and are not responsible for, the privacy practices of these entities. You should read the privacy policy of those entities to find out how they handle your personal information when you visit their websites.

We accept no responsibility or liability whatsoever for the content, actions or policies of third-party sites. The inclusion of links to third party sites on our site in no way constitutes an endorsement of the third-party sites' content, actions or policies: you access them at your own risk.


5.3 Updating or correcting your Personal Information

We will take reasonable steps to ensure the personal information (including sensitive (health) information) we collect is accurate, up to date, complete, relevant and not misleading. We will also take reasonable steps to ensure that when we use or disclose your personal information it is accurate, up to date, complete, relevant and not misleading, having regard to the purpose of the use or disclosure. However, you should advise us of any changes to your personal information by maintaining and updating your profile or information with us.

During the course of our relationship with you, we will from time to time ask you to confirm whether your personal information is correct or has changed.

You may also inform us of any changes to your personal information (such as your name or address) or correct any inaccuracy or errors in the information we hold by contacting us via the contact details in the ‘Contacting us’ section of this policy so that we can update your file accordingly. However, where there are grounds to refuse to correct the information as requested, we will provide you with reasons for not complying with your request where we are able to do so in accordance with applicable laws.


5.4 Accessing your Personal Information

You may request access to any of the personal information we hold about you at any time by contacting us via the contact details provided in the ‘Contacting Us’ section of this Policy.

While we do not generally charge you for requests to access your personal information, you should be aware that there may be reasonable charges (which will be notified to you when you make a request) for our time and cost associated with complying with your request to access your personal information in the following circumstances:

  • if an extended amount of time is required to collate and prepare material for you; or

  • if you wish to have your files photocopied and / or printed for you.

Where the Health Information Privacy Code 2020 applies and you request access to your health information, there may be reasonable charges (which will be notified to you when you make a request) for:

  • making available the same, or substantially the same, health information we have already made available to you in the last 12 months; or

  • providing you with a copy of an x-ray, a video recording, an MRI scan photograph, a PET scan photograph or a CT scan photograph.

Your request to access to your personal information may be denied on certain grounds including, for example:

  • it is unlawful;

  • it may have an unreasonable impact upon the privacy of other individuals; or

  • your request is frivolous or vexatious.

If we deny your access or correction request, we will advise you of the reasons for doing so as soon as practicable, (except if it is unreasonable to do so) and we will inform you of the mechanisms available to complain about the refusal (see Complaints section below).


5.5       Dealing with us anonymously or by pseudonym

In order for us to effectively do business with you or make our Website, services and associated content available to you, it will not, in most circumstances, be practical for us to deal with you without you providing relevant personal information to us. However, where it is lawful and practicable to do so, you may deal with us anonymously or by using a pseudonym. Such a situation might include where you make general enquiries about current or potential Everlight Radiology Services or promotional offers or the content on our Website.


6. Storage & Security

We store personal information in both electronic and hard copy form and we will keep your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purpose(s) it was provided for and to meet our legal obligations. Further details of the periods for which we retain data are available on request.

When the information is no longer needed for any purpose for which it was collected, or for which it may lawfully be used or disclosed, it will be destroyed or permanently de-identified.

We will also take reasonable steps to protect any personal information, including by implementing security procedures for access to our business premises and within our offices, as well as IT security procedures including encryption, password protection, firewalls, storing personal information on servers that utilise security software and systems, and site monitoring.

Although we aim to create a safe, secure environment by trying to limit access to the Website to legitimate users, we cannot guarantee that unauthorised parties will not gain access. To the extent permitted by law, we will not have any liability arising from any unauthorised access to your personal information.

Please contact us immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your account by anyone else or any other breach of security (see the contact details section in this policy).
