Australian Privacy Act 1988

The Australian Privacy Act (1988) plays an important role in safeguarding individuals’ privacy and data security. It applies to all organisations carrying out business in Australia which includes actively collecting and processing personal information in Australia or from Australian residents. The 13 Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) are the cornerstone of the data protection framework in Australia, governing standards, rights and obligations around the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.
