Personal Information Protection

The Office of the Tasmanian Economic Regulator (OTTER) values the privacy of every individual's personal information.

OTTER is committed to protecting the information it collects and use​s by compliance with the obligations provided under the Personal Information Protection Act 2004.

Protecting your personal information is an important aspect of the way OTTER creates, organises and implements its activities online and off-line.

You can access the home page of OTTER's website and browse the site without disclosing personal information. OTTER will only record an individual's email address and/or contact details if the individual sends this information to OTTER for the purpose of corresponding. The information an individual provides is collected for the purposes of responding to the matters raised in an individual's electronic correspondence.

OTTER will ensure that your personal information will not be used or disclosed to other State institutions and authorities except if required or allowed by law.

OTTER may collect non-personal information in gathering statistical information on how its website is used, or to assist you in navigating through its website.

OTTER has implemented technology and security policies, rules and measures to protect the personal information that it has under its control from unauthorised access, improper use, unsanctioned alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction and accidental loss.

OTTER will destroy personal information where it is no longer required (except where required to be kept in compliance with the Archives Act 1983). OTTER will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is accurate, complete and up to date whenever OTTER discloses or uses it.

Please note:

This personal information protection statement does not extend beyond OTTER's website. When linking to other sites from any of OTTER's website, we recommend that you read the relevant privacy statement of that site to familiarise yourself with the privacy policy that applies to it.
