  • to you keep up to date with Waalitj Hub and its services; and
  • any other purposes related to the above or otherwise necessary to give effect to the purposes listed above

We collect information concerning your race or ethnic origin because that information will be used for the purpose of ensuring that you meet the criteria for registration to the Waalitj Hub, which criteria are reflective of the conditions placed on the Government funding allocated to the Waalitj Hub. Additionally this information may be used to assist with identification of procurement, tender and pre-qualification opportunities suitable for you.

The provision of sensitive information to the Waalitj Foundation on a voluntary basis (including, for example, information you supply when applying for a position with the Waalitj Foundation) will be taken to be consent for this purpose.

Disclosure of your information

We may collect, store (in hard copy or electronic form), use or disclose and otherwise process your personal information for the primary purpose of conducting and supporting our functions or activities as the operator of a range of education, business, employment and justice services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians across Australia. Without limiting the foregoing, we may collect, store, use or disclose your personal information:
