NextSense is the registered business name of Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (ABN 53 443 272 865).

The Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children is a body corporate pursuant to the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children Act 1998 (NSW). You can access the NextSense’s privacy policy for more information. We collect, use and disclose your personal information for the purpose of providing our services to you and the NextSense school community, fundraising for NextSense and promoting the work of NextSense. This may include providing your personal information to the media to promote our services and to service providers to NextSense such as those providing marketing-related services, professional photographers, and sound recordists.

If we do not collect your personal information, that may restrict our ability to provide and promote our services. In general, we do not disclose personal information to an overseas recipient. We do, however, operate several services internationally, such as in Samoa, Fiji, Dubai, India, Singapore and Timor. If your child is enrolled in a program in one of those places it is likely that personal information we hold here, in Australia, will be sent back to that place or, in some cases, to other overseas places where we judge it to be in the interests of the individual.

If you wish to contact us, make a complaint about how we have handled your personal information, access the information we hold about you or seek a correction to that information, you can contact our Privacy Officer by the following means:
