Our Ten Privacy Principles.
The Victoria Compounding Pharmacy (VCP) is responsible for personal information under its custody and control and will reasonably ensure that it complies with the ten principles for the protection of privacy.
VCP will identify the purposes for which personal information is collected at or before the time the information is collected and will ensure that the purposes are limited to what a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances.
The knowledge and consent of the individual are required for the collection, use, or disclosure of personal information, except where inappropriate.
VCP will limit the collection of personal information to that which is considered necessary for the purposes it has identified.
5.Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention.
VCP will not use or disclose personal information for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with the consent of the individual or as required by law. Personal information will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes or as required by legislation.
Personal information will be as accurate, complete, and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used.
VCP will use security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information to protect personal information.
VCP will make readily available to individuals specific information about its policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.
9.Giving Individuals Access.
Upon request, applicants will be informed of the existence, use, and disclosure of his or her personal information and will be given access to that information. An individual will be able to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate.
Note: In certain situations, VCP may not be able to provide access to all the personal information it holds about an individual. Exceptions to the access requirement are limited and specific. The reasons for denying access will be provided to the individual upon request. Exceptions may include information that is prohibitively costly to provide, information that contains references to other individuals, information that cannot be disclosed for legal, security, or commercial proprietary reasons, and information that is subject to solicitor-client or litigation privilege.
VCP will have a process in place so that an individual can challenge VCP's compliance with the Personal Information Protection Act.
