Welcome to the Asia Pacific Blood Network (APBN) website.
The Asia Pacific Blood Network (APBN) website is maintained by the APBN Secretariat which is bound by the Commonwealth of Australia’s Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). The legislation includes 13 Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) that set out how APP entities should collect, use, keep secure and disclose personal information.
The APPs give individuals a right to know what information an organisation holds about them and the right to amend it if it is incorrect. There are special provisions for sensitive and health information. The APBN endorses fair information handling practices, which are consistent with the Commonwealth of Australia’s government legislation.
