4. HOW INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
4.1. Information will be collected in association with a patient’s health treatment as described above at 3.1(c). Providers record and provide diagnostic images and patient data to us using PRO. PRO then transmits that patient data to our Reporting Radiologist, who accesses the data for the purposes of preparing a Specialist Radiology report specific to that patient. That report is then stored alongside the patient data received from Providers. Providers and the patient can view the patient radiology report through an individualised log-in on a secured system. PRO continues to store the patient data and the radiology report on our hosted platform for up to seven (7) years, unless the patient or the Provider requests us to destroy it prior.
4.2. Information may also be collected in association with an individual’s use of PRO, an enquiry about PRO, the use of our website or generally dealing with us. We may also receive Personal Information from sources such as staff, recruitment agencies and our business partners. In particular, information is likely to be collected as follows:
(a) Health Treatment. When we are engaged to provide our comprehensive specialist radiology service in relation to a patient;
(b) Registrations/Subscriptions. When an individual registers or subscribes for a service they enter Personal Information details in order to receive or access something, including a transaction;
(c) Supply. When an individual supplies us with goods or services;
(d) Contact. When an individual contacts us in any way; and/or
4.3. As there are many circumstances in which we may collect information both electronically and physically, we will endeavour to ensure that an individual is always aware of when their Personal Information is being collected and will require Providers to obtain consent to the collection and use of your data by PRO.
4.4. Where we obtain Personal Information without an individual’s knowledge (such as by accidental acquisition from a Provider or client) we will either delete/destroy the information, or inform the individual that we hold such information, in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles.
5. WHEN PERSONAL INFORMATION IS USED AND DISCLOSED
5.1. In general, the primary principle is that we will not use any Personal Information other than for the purpose for which it was collected other than with the individual’s permission.
