It is not a substitute for independent professional advice. Nothing contained in this web site is intended to be used as medical advice and it is not intended to be used to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, nor should it be used for therapeutic purposes or as a substitute for your own health professional's advice.

Magenta has always recognised the importance of protecting your privacy and has ensured internal systems are in place to safeguard personal information.
In December 2001 the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 became effective. These amendments to the Privacy Act 1988 set out guidelines on how the private sector, including incorporated bodies and non-government organisations like Magenat, handle personal and sensitive information. The ten National Privacy Principles (NPPs) in the Act cover the collection, use, storage and disposal of such information, and an individual's right to access it.
Magenta fully supports the principles outlined in the new privacy legislation and renews its commitment to respect the confidentiality of all individuals.
