Dundas Lawyers advises organisations on all aspects of compliance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) and the Australian Privacy Principles.
Despite the Privacy Act having been in force for well over two decades, there are many misconceptions about its scope and purpose.
The Privacy Act applies to the information collection and dissemination practices of “APP entities”. The objective of the Privacy Act is to ensure that “Personal Information” is stored, used and disclosed in an appropriate fashion.
Our legal services in this area include, for example:
- Advising organisations on issues of privacy compliance;
- Advising organisations on information security standards;
- Acting for organisations in cases of breach of the Privacy Act;
- Drafting Privacy Policies;
- Privacy Training – training staff in information collection and storage procedures.
