From 12 March 2014, the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) replaced the National Privacy Principles and Information Privacy Principles, as contained in the Privacy Act (1988) (“Privacy Act”). The APPs apply to organisations and Australian Government (and Norfolk Island Government) agencies, and set out how an APP entity should collect, use, keep secure and disclose personal information. For more information on the Privacy Act please visit the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner’s Privacy Fact Sheet.
