Acknowledgement of country

Batchelor Institute would like to acknowledge and pay respect to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sovereign people of the lands on which our campuses are located. As we share our knowledge, teaching and learning and engage in research practices within this Institution and/or conduct business with a variety of external agencies and organisations, we must always pay respect to the sovereign status of our hosts. May their Ancestors always be remembered and honoured, their Elders listened to and respected, all members treated with dignity and fairness — in the present and well into the future.

We also acknowledge and pay respect to the knowledge embedded forever with our hosts, custodianship of country and the binding relationship they have with the land. Batchelor Institute extends this acknowledgment and expression of respect to all sovereign custodians — past, present and emerging. By expressing Acknowledgement of Country we encourage all to extend and practice respect to all First Nations people wherever their lands are located.

Privacy & Information Act

About the Act

The Northern Territory Information Act (the Act) was passed by the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly on 8 October 2002. The Act commenced on 1 July 2003 and will affect the way that Northern Territory public sector organisations collect, use and store Institute and personal information. Under the Act and for the first time in Australia, the related issues of freedom of information (FOI), privacy and records and archives management are brought together.

The Act is designed to promote the protection of personal information and the free flow of government information subject only to the need to protect essential public interests and the private and business interests of persons.

The primary purpose of the Act is to encourage the view within government that access to information is of positive benefit and that public sector organisations should operate within a culture of readily providing access to government information, unless good reasons exist for not doing so.

The Act has four main components:


A right of access to government information, including personal information, except where an exemption applies


The appointment of an Information Commissioner


Effective and responsible record keeping and records management


The protection of personal information in the public sector by applying Information Privacy Principles (IPPs).

The Act does not replace other procedures for accessing information, or limit access to government information (other than personal information) this is already publicly available.

The Act creates a legal right of access to government and personal information held by government, including the right to request the correction of personal information where a person believes that the information regarding them is incorrect, inaccurate or out of date. This right of access is limited where the disclosure of particular information would be contrary to the public interest, due to it having a prejudicial effect on essential public interests or on the private or business interests of other persons.
