Australian Privacy Principles Update

An update to the Privacy Principles covering the handling of personal information by businesses has been introduced today.

The changes will affect how businesses can:
>> handle and process personal information
>> use personal information for direct marketing
>> disclose personal information to people overseas

The Privacy Act changes will also give the Information Commissioner the ability to:
>> investigate serious breaches (including the right to impose penalties on businesses)
>> assess the privacy performance of businesses
