PrivacyRules Australian law firm member Macpherson Kelley published an interesting article on the reasons to be privacy compliant in Australia.

The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) and its 13 Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) were introduced to promote and protect the privacy of individuals and to regulate organisations with turnover of more than $3 million (with some exceptions), as to how they collect, hold, use, store, disclose and destroy personal information collected from individuals.

The APPs provide the framework for privacy protection – including standards and rights and obligations around personal information, data protection, accountability, correction, and the individual’s right to access the personal information held about them by a business.
