Consent is always sought in using personal and sensitive information for research purposes. This information, however, is always de-identified prior to analysis and individual clients cannot be identified from any research analysis or report. Disclosure Client information is never disclosed to other organisations or individuals without the client’s consent, unless they are working directly on our behalf or we are required to do so by law. In some cases, personal information (but never sensitive information) is supplied to contractors who perform some of these tasks directly on our behalf, (for example freight companies or research agencies) who must sign strict privacy and security agreements and are also bound by the National Privacy Principles. These agreements ensure that these contractors keep personal information confidential and do not use it for any other purpose other than the work we have contracted them to perform.
