Personal information provided by applicants and selected panel members is protected by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and CSIRO will handle your personal information in accordance with this Act and the National Health and Medical Research Council National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007, updated 2018).
Your personal information, including your name, contact details, and opinions shared in panel meetings and any responses collected in interviews will be collected for the purpose of the project and related scientific research.
CSIRO may also collect your sensitive information, including your image, if you consent to having your photograph taken, for the purposes outlined above.
CSIRO may disclose your personal information to third parties for purposes necessary for or related to the project where it engages with them, or uses their services or products, to facilitate the project. This may include an external facilitator, contracted third-party transcription provider, communications platform and other participants present at panel meetings.
While CSIRO does not intend to disclose your personal information overseas, it is possible that some incidental overseas disclosure of your personal information may occur during the conduct of an online meeting or through ordinary email correspondence (particularly if you, another participant or a service provider are located overseas). By participating in this study and providing us with your personal information, you understand that any of your personal information disclosed overseas will not be subject to the requirements of the Privacy Act.
It is intended that the information obtained through the panel meetings and interviews will be de-identified and published and/or presented in a variety of forums. This includes the production of a final publicly available report, as well as scientific journal publications, factsheets, media releases and conference presentations.
