(3) The University of Queensland provides a multi-function identification card containing photographic images for all its students. Photographic images are produced and stored electronically by an external agent that manages the process of producing the identification card.

(4) Where the use of the ID card images is judged to be in the interests of students and not breaching their right to privacy, organisational units and their staff (or external authorities who request access) may be granted access.
