Australian Privacy Principles (APPs)

The Australian Privacy Principles (or APPs) are the cornerstone of the privacy protection framework in the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act). They apply to any organisation or agency the Privacy Act covers.

General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR

“General Data Protection Regulation.” GDPR, also known as Regulation (EU) 2016/679, is a European Union law drafted on April 27, 2016 and instituted on May 25, 2018. It replaces the EU Data Protection Directive, which was adopted in 1995. The primary purpose of GDPR is to protect the personal data of residents of countries within the European Union (EU).

The 88-page GDPR document begins by stating the protection of people in regards to their personal data is a fundamental human right. The rules and guidelines within the General Data Protection Regulation are designed to support this premise. It states that all data controllers (organizations that collect and store user data) must protect the data, give users access to the data, and make the data easily transferrable.

GDPR updates the previous Data Protection Directive to be relevant to modern times and technologies. For example:

  • Regulation 42 states that data processors (such as websites) must make their identity clear and ask users for consent before storing their data.
  • Regulation 49 bans malicious activity in regards to data, such as hacking and denial of service attacks.
  • Regulation 83 states that data controllers and processors should mitigate security risks by using encryption.
  • Article 33.1 requires organizations to inform their users within 72 hours of when a data breach has been discovered.

Data Access Requests

  • You may request details of the data we currently hold about you, make amendments, update your consent, or request deletions at any time.
