This notice outlines how the National Indigenous Australians Agency (the Agency) collects and protects your personal information when you communicate with us about our review of the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (CATSI Act), and when using our website.
Communicating with you
The Agency collects your personal information (such as your name and your email address), to communicate with you about your specific feedback or enquiry (if you have submitted one) or to distribute updates (if you have subscribed). Providing the requested information, including your contact details, is voluntary. If you choose not to provide us with your contact details, we will not be able to contact you to discuss your feedback further, but your feedback will still be considered in the drafting of the final report.
You can choose to receive updates and information by subscribing - email CATSIActReview@niaa.gov.au. You can also choose to communicate with us using social media on Facebook , Twitter, or LinkedIn. These are voluntary third party services.
If you would like to communicate with us directly, you can email us.
Video conferencing services
The Agency uses a third party provider, Pexip, to conduct its online consultation sessions for the CATSI Review. If you choose to participate in an online session:
- we will provide your personal information to the third party service provider, Pexip, for the purposes of seeking your feedback on the CATSI Act.
Feedback you provide through these sessions may be summarised and included in the consultation summary report to be drafted by the NIAA at the conclusion of consultation. Participants in the virtual consultation sessions will not be identified in the summary report and comments will not be attributed to them unless consent is given.
Social networking services
If you choose to communicate with us through a third party social network service such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn:
- we may collect your personal information to help us communicate with you and the public;
- the social network service providers (and potentially their partners) may collect, use, and hold your personal information, including overseas;
- the social networking service providers will also handle your personal information for their own purposes. These services have their own privacy policies. You can access the privacy policies for Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn (a Microsoft company) on their websites.
When you email us personal information, or provide it to us through a form provided through this site:
- we will record your email address and any other information submitted

If you fail to provide us with a minimum level of information (usually marked with an asterisk and generally, a name and email address), we may not be able to respond to you.
If you email us with feedback, please indicate in writing whether you consent to your feedback being published on the NIAA’s website or not, as well as whether you consent to:
- the consultation report identifying you (as well as your organisation) as the author, with comments attributed to the submission; or
