Collection of your personal information

We use TESSA to collect your personal information. We do so by asking you for that information, for example when you apply for a TESSA user account or fill out a form using TESSA. Providing your personal information to us through TESSA is always voluntary, but sometimes we will need that information for you to use TESSA or to process an application you want to make.

We also share that information with the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (Privacy), a branch of NSW Treasury (address: 52 Martin Place, Sydney, NSW 2000).
