K1 Clinic Pty Ltd (“K1”, “we”, “us” or “our”) is committed to dealing with personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 and Australian Privacy Principles. These principles guide the way in which we collect, use, store and share your personal information.
Personal information is any information, or an opinion, that identifies or could reasonably identify an individual.
K1 is a healthcare services company staffed by medical, research and business experts. We collect and handle personal information in order to carry out our regular work activities including, among other things, patient management, communication and medical research. K1 is the group of companies made up of K1 Clinic Limited and its subsidiaries.
Collection of personal information
K1 collects personal information from its employees, directors and relevant committee members, suppliers, service providers and other people connected with its activities. We also collect personal health information and other sensitive information about our patients, as is expected when attending a medical clinic either in person or remotely.
Personal information collected by K1 may include:
We may collect personal information in the following ways:
Purpose of Collection and Use

Information may also be used for secondary purposes as required or permitted by law. Any other use of your personal information will require your informed consent.
We will only use and disclose personal information for the primary purpose for which it was collected, or for a reasonable secondary purpose, unless you agree otherwise, or unless allowed or required by law.
It is possible that a third party may have access to your personal information if they are engaged by K1 to assist us in performing usual work functions, such as to enhance or audit clinical services or research. Where this kind of disclosure takes place, our policy is to include protective provisions regarding the handling of confidential personal information in the written contracts or statements of work.
When conducting a member survey on behalf of a third party, K1 does not disclose personal information to that third party. We will never share personal information with a third party for marketing purposes.
Storage and Security
We store personal information in electronic and/or hard copy and we have secure record‐ keeping systems. We take all reasonable steps to protect personal information from unauthorised use, access, disclosure and alteration.
We do not share our non-biometric access mechanisms (ie: usernames and passwords), or access keys or leave our access account open for others to use.
IT protection systems and internal procedures are also utilised to protect the personal information held by us. We may store electronic information on remote servers or in the cloud directly or through contracted agencies (all information is securely stored in Australia with backups securely stored in the United States of America and encrypted before transfer back to Australia).
K1 uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificates which is the industry standard for encrypting personal information collected via our website. We do not store patient credit or debit card information. We use a third-party provider for payment transactions, which provides a secure online payment gateway solution for credit card and direct debit processing of K1’s clinical service payments.
Personal data is maintained under strict security and is only to be accessed internally by K1 staff who require access as part of their role or to complete a task, or by contractors who have signed a confidentiality agreement and who are working for and on behalf of K1 and who require access to personal information in order to carry out their duties.
Records containing personal information will be held by K1 until there is no longer a need or obligation to retain such records, after which time they will be securely deleted, destroyed or de‐identified.
