Privacy Policy

HealthWest Partnership values the privacy of individual’s personal information.

HealthWest is committed to protecting the privacy of personal information in compliance with the principles set out in the Information Privacy Act 2000.

Protecting your personal information is an important aspect of the way we create, organise and implement our business activities. We will only collect personal information that is necessary to perform these functions. We will only use personal information provided for the purposes for which it was collected. We will ensure that your personal information will not be disclosed to other bodies without your consent, except if required by law.

We have implemented technology and security policies, rules and measures to protect the personal information that we have under our control from unauthorised access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction and accidental loss.

We will remove personal information where it is no longer required (except where archiving is required and in compliance with the Public Records Act 1973). We will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is accurate, complete and up-to-date whenever HealthWest collects, discloses or uses it.
