A new National Cultural Policy
How it works
The following submissions have been produced by third parties and may not meet WCAG 2.0 requirements. If you require an accessible copy, please email culturalpolicy [at] arts.gov.au.
The department is collecting personal information for the purposes of national public consultation on a National Cultural Policy, in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988.
The department will use your personal information for the purposes of accepting written submissions to inform a National Cultural Policy, and this information will be stored securely and only used to contact you if needed. Your personal information will not be disclosed to any other third parties, except in the circumstances outlined below.
Submissions, in part or full, including the name of the author may be published on the Department's website or in the Government’s response, unless the submission is confidential. Confidential submissions (including author name) will not be published. Private addresses and contact details will not be published or disclosed to any third parties unless required by law.
Submissions will only be treated as confidential if they are expressly stated to be confidential. Automatically generated confidentiality statements or disclaimers appended to an email do not suffice for this purpose. If you wish you make a confidential submission, you should indicate this by ensuring your submission is marked confidential.
Confidential submissions will be kept securely and will only be disclosed in the following circumstances:
- in response to a request by a Commonwealth Minister;
- where required by a House or a Committee of the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia; or
- where required by law.
The department may also disclose information obtained through the consultation process within the Commonwealth of Australia, including with other Commonwealth agencies, where necessary or if in the public interest.
Please note that in order to protect the personal privacy of individuals in accordance with the Privacy Act, any submissions containing sensitive information, personal information or information which may reasonably be used to identify a person or group of people may not be published, even if not marked as confidential.
If you do not provide all the information requested, you may miss the opportunity to submit a written submission for which the information was gathered.
