How we collect Personal Information
We may collect Personal Information from an individual in a number of ways, including:
directly from the individual (such as when make an Freedom of Information request, you contact VicTrack about a matter, you participate in a VicTrack survey, or you buy, lease or otherwise acquire an interest in an asset owned by VicTrack);
from third parties (such as other Victorian Government entities which refer enquiries or complaints addressed to Victorian Government Ministers or agencies to VicTrack for advice and response);
from third parties we may disclose information to (such as public transport operators and other authorities for the purposes of providing feedback and answering queries if that authority is better able to respond to a comment, query, enquiry or complaint); or
