Ausmed is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act, and observes applicable principles of the GDPR.
What is GDPR and who does it apply to?
The GDPR is EU regulation designed to protect the privacy of EU citizens and impacts all organisations that process the personal data of such citizens, regardless of whether an organisation itself is based in the EU.
The GDPR describes different requirements depending on how an organisation handles data subjects' personal data.
"Data Controllers" are businesses that collect customer data and also decide how, when and why that customer data is processed.
"Data Processors" are businesses that carry out the processing of customer data on behalf of a Data Controller.
Ausmed is a Data Controller in our relationship with our own customers.
