Privacy Protection Principles
- Personal information may only be collected for a lawful and necessary purpose connected with some required function or activity of Project Jonah, and it should not be used for any other purpose.
- Personal information must, as a general rule, be collected directly from the person concerned, and it must be collected in a lawful, fair, and reasonable manner.

Requests for access must be dealt with promptly – i.e., within 20 working days.
- Before using personal information, Project Jonah must take reasonable steps to ensure that it is accurate, up-to-date, complete, relevant, and not misleading, and that it is being used for the purpose for which it was collected.
