New Privacy Laws Take Effect

12 03 2014

A sweeping change in privacy laws take place with effect from today. The changes will see the introduction of new Australian Privacy Principles known as APPs, which regulate the manner in which personal information is handled by businesses (with a turnover of $3 million or greater), government, personal information traders and health service providers.

What it means for business, is that privacy policies will need to be updated, if they haven’t already been, and processes for the handling of personal information will need to be harmonised with the new laws.

Cooper Mills Lawyers provide advice on all aspects of the new privacy laws, whether it is in audit for compliance with the law or the amendment or preparation of a new privacy policy, we can assist.
