At the time of registering for BloodPortal and when using the system the National Blood Authority collects your personal information to work out whether you can be registered and to manage your user account.
It is also used to self-populate your identity and contact details when registering for other National Blood Authority ICT systems including the Australian Bleeding Disorders Registry (ABDR), BloodChat, BloodNet, Jurisdictional Reporting and a variety of mailing lists.
In this way, BloodPortal provides users with a single place where they can directly update and correct their contact details with the NBA across several IT systems and subscribe to mailing lists relating to transfusion in Australia.
If you choose not to provide the mandatory information on this form then your application for access to BloodPortal cannot be processed.
This will prevent you from accessing a range of NBA ICT systems including ABDR, BloodChat, BloodNet and Jurisdictional Reporting.
The NBA at times also contacts those involved in the Australian Blood Sector to make them aware of important news and events.
Indicate below if you consent to the National Blood Authority (noting that we will not disclose your personal information to a third party) contacting you on an irregular basis in relation to matters affecting the Australian Blood Sector.
At any stage you can change your mind and withdraw your consent by emailing the National Blood Authority at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that a condition of access to some systems (such as ABDR and BloodNet) is that you consent to receive regular updates on matters relating to these systems.
Your choice to receive or not, other updates from the NBA will not affect updates relating to ABDR and BloodNet if you are a user of one or both of these systems.
For specific privacy questions please call the NBA Legal Counsel on 02 6151 5040 or email email@example.com.
