How LinkSA Collects Information
What Are Your Rights
Access to Your Information
There is no fee for requesting access to your information, however we may charge you for the reasonable cost of processing, and producing the results of your request (for example, reasonable photocopying costs and, depending on the level of access required, reasonable administrative cost).
Sometimes we are not required to provide you with access - for example, if we consider your request is vexatious or when giving you access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of another person or if the law says we can deny access. If we refuse you access to your personal information, we will tell you the reason why. If we are not required to provide you with access to the information requested, we will consider, if reasonable, whether the use of a mutually agreed intermediary would allow sufficient access to meet your needs and ours.
