Personal Information Protection
The Tasmanian Government and the Tasmanian Planning Commission (“Commission”) and its service providers value the privacy of every individual's personal information.
We are committed to protecting the information we collect and use by compliance with the obligations provided under the Personal Information Protection Act 2004.
Protecting your personal information is an important aspect of the way we create, organise and implement our activities online and off-line.
You can access our website home page and browse our site without disclosing personal information. The Tasmanian Government and the Commission will only record an individual's email address and/or contact details if they send our site a message. The information an individual provides is collected for the purposes of responding to the matters raised in an individual's electronic correspondence.
We will ensure that your personal information will not be used or disclosed to other State institutions and authorities except if required or allowed by law.
We may collect non-personal information in gathering statistical information on how our websites are used, or to assist you in navigating through our websites.
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, unsanctioned alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction and accidental loss.
We will destroy personal information where it is no longer required (except where required to be kept in compliance with the Archives Act 1983). We will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is accurate, complete and up to date whenever the Tasmanian Government discloses or uses it.
Tasmanian Planning Commission’s policy on the redaction of contact details from representations and submissions
Notwithstanding the above, it is the Commission’s policy not to redact personal contact details from representations and submissions published on the iplan website.
The Commission relies upon the iplan website as the primary means by which relevant documents are provided to parties to its proceedings. In the interests of ensuring that each party has access to the same information for reasons of procedural fairness, the Commission publishes representations and submissions on the iplan website in full, including the representor’s contact details, such as email address or phone number.
Each person making a representation or submission, is undertaking to participate in a public process.
While the Commission has powers to take confidential submissions, the decision to do so (wholly or in part) is a matter for the Commission’s delegates. Any party to a proceeding requesting that their submission should remain confidential must make their request in writing to the Commission, setting out their reasons.
