What does privacy compliance require?

Privacy compliance requires organisations to:

  • tell individuals the purpose for which personal information is being collected and how the organisation can be contacted to get access to that information
  • only use or disclose personal information for the purpose it was collected (or another purpose that the individual would reasonably expect)
  • give individuals reasonable access to their personal information and have a process in place for dealing with any complaints
  • take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is secure
  • develop a publicly available policy which outlines how the organisation deals with privacy.
