How we protect your privacy
We take personal privacy seriously.
The Ten to Men study is bound by Commonwealth and state privacy laws, and we will protect your anonymity and the confidentiality of your information to the fullest possible extent, within the limits of the law.
We follow strict procedures when managing and running the study to ensure only authorised people have access to the information provided to us. All interviewers, researchers and others involved in the study comply with the Privacy Act 1988.
All providers involved in collecting the survey information adhere to the:
- Australian Market and Social Research Society (AMSRS) Code of Professional Behaviour
- ISO 20252 standards.
If the organisation responsible for collecting data for Ten to Men changes in the future, we will inform you.
Your personal information (such as your name, date of birth, Medicare number and address) will never be used together with your survey responses.
We don’t analyse your survey answers on their own either, we combine them with other participants and analyse the responses as a group. No one can identify you from your survey answers.

Our duty of care
While in most circumstances we keep the information you provide strictly confidential, if you tell us you are going to hurt yourself or someone else, or you are being hurt, we will have to tell someone who can help you. If you tell us someone is hurting you, we might be required by law to report it.
