The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (the department/we) is collecting information through submissions to inform our review of the Australian Domestic Gas Security Mechanism.

The Department is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles outlined in Schedule 1 of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), which regulates how we may collect, use, disclose and store personal information. We respect your rights to privacy under the Privacy Act and we comply with all the Privacy Act’s requirements in respect of collection and management of your personal information.

Personal information

Through your submission, the department will collect personal information from you including your name, email address, and if applicable, the name of your organisation. This information may be accessed by departmental staff who are involved with policy development and implementation.

Personal information obtained will be stored and held in accordance with the department’s obligations under the Archives Act 1983 (Cth). Your personal information will not be used or disclosed without your consent, except as set out above or where authorised or required by law.

We may publish submissions on our website unless the submission or part of the submission is marked as confidential. If only part of the submission is confidential, you must clearly identify the confidential text. If only part of your submission is confidential, you may also provide us with a non-confidential version of the submission which can be published.

Any information you provide as part of the submission process which is both confidential and marked as confidential by you will not be disclosed beyond the Department, Ministers and their officers.

Any contact details that you provide within your submission will be redacted prior to the submission being published.

Submissions, comments, opinions and responses will not be published if the Department considers that the submissions may contain potentially defamatory statements or other offensive comments.
