Privacy is important to us. We will only collect, use or disclose personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988. If Comcare does not collect personal information for the purposes of assessing a claim or related functions, we may not be able to determine the claim.
Comcare is the Commonwealth agency authorised by the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (SRC Act) to collect personal information relevant to an injured worker's claim for the purposes of managing the compensation claim and for the management of the injured worker's rehabilitation and the discharge of other functions and use of other powers under the SRC Act. For those purposes, Comcare may need to collect from, use and disclose personal information to the following parties:
Comcare is not likely to disclose personal information to a person who is not in Australia or an external Territory, unless the information relates to an incident, investigation, injury or illness sustained while overseas, or treatment provided by an overseas practitioner. If disclosure of personal information is made to an overseas recipient, Comcare will comply with obligations regarding disclosure to overseas entities (Australian Privacy Principle 8).
