Important information to note regarding submissions
Your name (or the name of the organisation) will be published on the Department’s website, unless you request otherwise.
In the absence of a clear indication that a submission or parts of a submission are intended to be treated as confidential, the Department will treat the submission as public and publish it on its website.
If you would like your submission treated as confidential, whether in whole or in part, please indicate this in writing at the time of making your submission. Please clearly identify the parts of your submission that you wish to remain confidential and the reasons why (see “The Right to Information Act 2009 and Confidentiality”). Your submission will be published to the extent of your request.
The Department will not publish, in whole or in part, submissions containing defamatory or offensive material, or submissions that breach any laws. If your submission includes information that could enable the identification of other individuals, then either all or parts of the submission will not be published.
Submissions that do not substantively comment on issues that are relevant to the consultation will not be published.
Copyright in submissions remains with the author(s), not with the Tasmanian Government.
