You are safe because you used protection which did not fail. Condome failure is very obvious and can not go un noticed.

Correct use of condom protects us from HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases by providing total protection.

You should not have any reason to worry about.

However in my personal opinion, your partner should have told you up front about his status, feeling his moral responsibility.
