What you need to know about new Australian Privacy Legislation

The new Australian Privacy Legislation went live on 12th March 2014. New data protection laws introduced restrict how Australian businesses collect, store and use data. These are outlined in the Australian Privacy Principles (APP).

 The key changes include:

 Failure to comply could result in fines from the Australian Privacy Commissioner.

 In particular, businesses need to review:

 Any digital communications that are sent or presented by a business will need to be reviewed.  No matter where you work or what business you are in, make sure your workplace finds out the legal requirements required for your business.  More details on the changes can be found on the Australian Government website Privacy law reform website.  If in doubt, contact your industry body and/or your own business lawyers.
