Offensive or Defamatory Information

If we consider information to be offensive or defamatory, we may refuse to convey that information to any other party to the complaint. 

We may require the information to be amended by having all offensive or defamatory material removed before accepting or considering it.

If the party concerned does not resubmit the amended information with all offensive and defamatory material removed we may:

  1. regard a complaint as being withdrawn and notify the parties of this outcome; and/or
  2. proceed to deal with the complaint without regard to the information.
