Australian Network on Disability - Advancing the equitable inclusion of people with disability in all aspects of business.
We are committed to protecting the data of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.
Participation in the Access and Inclusion Index is confidential. Only AND and the organisation itself will be aware of their registration for the Index. AND does not produce or publish a table of results.
AND will be able to extract raw data off the back end of the website relating to Comprehensive Self-Assessments and organisations, but this will only be used for data analysis purposes and identifying information will not be shared outside AND.
All submissions of assessments for evaluation are treated as strictly confidential and evaluation of answers and evidence is done within the AND team.
All materials are held securely in the Access and Inclusion system and can only be viewed nominated people within your organisation and AND. Any materials printed during the course of evaluation by AND will be securely destroyed.
Evaluation and Benchmark Reports provided to individual organisations identify the average score and the highest score but not the name of the organisation who the highest score belongs to.
An overall Benchmark Report may be produced at the end of the year that does not identify any organisations and just the identifies the highest, lowest and average score.
Any leading practices or organisations that AND believes should be recognised will be contacted for permission before they are referenced or celebrated.
