Privacy Policy

Maroondah City Council has adopted a Privacy Policy to regulate the use and access by Council to the personal information and health information that it collects from both its residents and clients.

To provide services all Councils are required to collect and use personal, confidential and sensitive information of individuals. Maroondah is required to balance the rights of individuals to have controls over the use of their personal information to that of ensuring that the right information is available for services to operate and function.

Both the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 and the Health Records Act 2001 require all Victorian Councils to comply with a series of privacy principles that are tailored for either the collection and use of personal information or the collection and use of health information.  Maroondah is fully committed to its privacy obligations.


If an individual feels aggrieved by Maroondah's handling of their personal or health information, they can raise their concerns with Council's Privacy Officer. The concern will be investigated as soon as possible and a response will be provided.

Individuals can also raise their concerns with the Office of the Commissioner for Privacy & Data Protection or the Office of the Health Services Commissioner (although the Commissioner/s may decline to consider the matter if the individual has not first raised the issue with Maroondah City Council).
