Collection Statement

To assist the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC, we, us or our) in processing and managing your request for a review by the Medical Evacuation Response Group and considering whether you may be able to apply for a medical transfer under the Home Affairs Legislation Amendment (Miscellaneous Measures) Act 2018, we need to collect personal information about you.

By providing your personal information, you agree that it will be used and disclosed by the ASRC in accordance with this statement and our Privacy Policy, available at www.merg.org.au.

If you do not agree, you must not provide your personal information, and we may not be able to communicate with you or undertake this review.

We may disclose your personal information to other parties, including triage doctors, caseworkers, doctors and lawyers, and to third parties who provide products and services to us or through us in the ordinary operation, administration or promotion of our organisation and otherwise in accordance with our Privacy Policy. From time to time, these third parties may be located (and therefore your personal information may be disclosed) both interstate within Australia, and overseas, including Papua New Guinea, Nauru, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand or Indonesia.

Our Privacy Policy contains information about how you may access and seek correction of your personal information, how you may complain about a breach of your privacy, and how we will deal with that complaint.
