The New South Wales Institute of Psychiatry (NSWIOP) is strongly committed to protecting your privacy while interacting with our content, products and services. We want to provide a safe and secure environment.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you of information we may gather about you when you visit our site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct this information. Our goal is to provide you with a satisfying experience while allowing you to control your privacy and to give you a means to voice any questions or concerns you may have.
This policy applies only to NSWIOP and not to other companies' or organisations' websites to which NSWIOP is linked.

Collection of information

Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not.
NSWIOP collects two types of information: anonymous information and personal information. NSWIOP will collect personal information such as your name, email address or postal address when you provide it to us. With this information, NSWIOP can provide a variety of personalised and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users. We hope that you will find it beneficial to provide individually identifiable information about yourself as it will make our services more valuable to you.

How much of your personal information that you choose to disclose to NSWIOP is completely up to you.

Use of anonymous information

NSWIOP automatically gathers anonymous information to monitor the use of NSWIOP such as the number and frequency of visitors to NSWIOP and its areas. This collective data helps us determine how our audiences use parts of the site so we can improve the website. NSWIOP may publish or provide this aggregate data to other people.

Use of personal information

NSWIOP will only use the personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. NSWIOP will not use it for any other purpose without your consent.


There will be occasions where it will be necessary for NSWIOP to disclose your personal information to third parties. NSWIOP may be required by law to disclose the information, or NSWIOP may be required to disclose your personal information to third parties to provide the service you have requested. However, the disclosure will only be made where it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which you disclosed your personal information. Other than stated above, we do not disclose personal information that you may give us, such as your name, address, email address or telephone number to any organisation or person outside NSWIOP unless you have authorised us to do so.

No sale of personal information

Under no circumstances will NSWIOP sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.


NSWIOP operates secure data networks that are designed to protect your privacy and security.

Complaints about privacy

If you have any complaints relating to online privacy issues on our websites, please notify us. While NSWIOP accepts no liability for any material or links posted to the service, we will investigate all complaints.
