Privacy Statement

The Competition Policy Review website is managed by the Treasury.  The Treasury is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles in section 14 of the Privacy Act 1988 and provides the following privacy statement.


Confidential submissions

It is intended that all submissions not marked as confidential will be treated as public and placed on the Review website (including name and address details). Therefore authors of submissions who would like part of their submission to remain in confidence should provide this information marked as such in a separate submission.

Submissions marked as confidential will not be published on the Review website.

Discretion of the Review to refuse to publish material

The Review has the discretion not to publish submissions in cases where they contain offensive language or potentially defamatory material.

Personal information

Unless otherwise requested, all details that have been included on a submission, including contact information, will be available on the Review website. A request may be made to withhold some or all personal information. We recommend that submitters remove any personal information that they do not want published prior to sending content to the Review. The Review will not pass on personal information to a third party, including regulators such as the ACCC,  however, once personal information has been published onto the web, the Review does not have any control over its subsequent use and disclosure.


The Review prefers to receive submissions in Word format so that submissions can be saved and placed on the website in an accessible format.
