Chess will take reasonable steps to let individuals know what sort of personal information it holds, for what purposes, and how it collects, holds, uses and discloses that information. 

Access and Correction

Where Chess holds personal information about an individual, it will provide the individual access to the information on request by that individual, except to the extent that: 

(a) providing access would pose a serious and imminent threat to the life or health of any individual; or 

(b) providing access would have an unreasonable impact upon the privacy of other individuals; or 

(c) the request for access is frivolous or vexatious; or 

(d) the information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings between the organisation and the individual, and the information would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings; or 

(e) providing access would reveal the intentions of the organisation in relation to negotiation with the individual in such a way as to prejudice those negotiations; or 

(f) providing access would be unlawful; or 

(g) denying access is required or authorised by or under law; or 

(h) providing access would be likely to prejudice an investigation of possible unlawful activity; or

(ii) enforcement of laws relating to the confiscation of the proceeds of crime; or
(iii) the protection of the public revenue; or

Where providing access would reveal evaluative information generated within Chess in connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process, Chess may give the individual an explanation for the commercially sensitive decision rather than direct access to the information. 

Where direct access is inappropriate or impractical, Chess and the individual should consider whether the use of mutually agreed intermediaries would allow sufficient access to meet the needs of the parties. 

If Chess levies charges for providing access to personal information, those charges will not be excessive and will not apply for lodging a request for access. 

If Chess holds personal information about an individual and the individual is able to establish that the information is not accurate, complete and up-to-date, Chess will take reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up-to-date. 

If the individual and Chess disagree about whether the information is accurate, complete and up-to-date, and the individual asks the organisation to associate with the information a statement claiming that the information is not accurate, complete or up-to-date, Chess will take reasonable steps to do so. 

Chess will provide reasons for denial of access or a refusal to correct personal information.
