Privacy notice

Our department collects information on RDA Chair applications for the purposes of processing applications to join an RDA Committee. Individual RDA Committees collect information on the RDA Deputy Chair and committee member application forms for the same purpose.

Our department, Ministers, state and/or territory departments and, in some cases, relevant local government associations and RDA Committee Chairs collect information for the purpose of considering applications to an RDA committee. The department and RDA Committees do not routinely disclose personal information to overseas recipients. If you do not provide the information requested, your application may not be able to proceed.

Our department’s Privacy Policy sets out what personal and sensitive information we collect and how we handle it. General information about the Privacy Act (1988) and the Australian Privacy Principles can also be found on the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner's website.
