We understand and appreciate the importance of information security and protecting individual privacy. We collect personal information about students when they apply to enrol and throughout their enrolment, including information we obtain in the performance of our agreement with them. We need some of this information to comply with our obligations under Australian laws, such as the
Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 and National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018.
We may record, use and disclose the personal information provided to us in connection with this agreement and our international student programs so that we can administer our agreement and the student's enrolment, provide the course to them, discharge our duty of care and comply with Australian laws.
If students are living with a homestay provider, we will record, use and disclose their personal information for the purpose of approving and monitoring their accommodation, support and general welfare for the duration of the homestay arrangement. There will be an ongoing exchange of the student's personal information between the homestay provider and us, including through secure online services such as Q Parents.
If students have nominated an education agent on their application for enrolment, we may disclose their personal information to their agent, throughout enrolment, unless they notify us in writing not to do so.
We may disclose a student's personal information to Commonwealth Government agencies including agencies responsible for administering migration or education services, outside school hours care (OSHC) providers (if we are arranging OSHC for them), Queensland state schools and homestay providers. We may also disclose a student's personal information where authorised or required by law.
