Accessing personal information and seeking corrections

Jenoptik will provide a person with access to their personal information upon written request, except where:

  • Jenoptik reasonably believes that providing access to the information would pose a serious threat to the life, health or safety of any individual, or to public health or public safety;
  • providing access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of other individuals;
  • the request is frivolous or vexatious;
  • the information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings between Jenoptik and the individual and the personal information would not normally be discoverable;
  • providing access would reveal Jenoptik’s intentions in negotiations with the individual in such a way as to prejudice those negotiations;
  • providing access would be unlawful;
  • denying access is required by or under an Australian law or a court/tribunal order;
  • Jenoptik has reason to suspect that unlawful activity, or misconduct of a serious nature, that relates to Jenoptik’s functions or activities has been, is being or may be engaged in and giving access would be likely to prejudice the taking of appropriate action in relation to the matter;
  • providing access would be likely to prejudice one or more enforcement-related activities conducted by, or on behalf of, an enforcement body; or
  • providing access would reveal evaluative information generated within Jenoptik in connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process.

The written request should be made to the email or postal address set out below in the contact details.

Once Jenoptik has responded to a request for access, if the person is able to establish that the information is inaccurate, incomplete, out of date or otherwise incorrect, Jenoptik will correct the information.
