Access to Personal Information

The Papua New Guinea Union Mission will provide details of personal information it holds to the individual to whom that information relates as and make corrections when required. Information will not be provided where:

  • the information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings between the organisation and the individual, and the information would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings; or

  • Personal information shall only be released to persons with a legitimate need to know.
  • Information released shall relate specifically to the purpose for which it is given. For example, it may only be necessary to disclose part of the information contained in one document in a file, not the entire document or file.
  • Employees shall take all reasonable care to prevent unauthorised access to personal information.

eGiving Tithes & Offerings

eGiving facilitates the secure online returning of tithe to God. This tithe is directed to the Seventh-day Adventist Church across Papua New Guinea. Because tithe is holy, there are strict guidelines for how the Seventh-day Adventist uses tithe. Tithe is used by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to pay those who are employed to proclaim the gospel and to equip members as disciple makers.
