How to use these resources
Start by reading The Privacy Act in a Nutshell.
Privacy, Marketing and Cookies explains how the Privacy Act, Spam Act and Do Not Call Register Act work in relation to marketing activities, and also covers the NZ laws, Californian law (CCPA) and European laws (the GDPR and ePrivacy Directive, aka ‘the cookie law’) as they impact on Australian companies. GDPR in a Nutshell explains the basics of what the GDPR regulates, and what it requires.
Then for an overview of each privacy statute in Australia,use the Australian Privacy Law Index. The Index is the result of mapping the privacy statutes in NSW, the ACT, Victoria, Tasmania, Queensland and the Northern Territory, in addition to the federal Privacy Act. (SA and WA do not have their own privacy laws.) The Index will help you quickly find the correct privacy rule that applies to an organisation in any given jurisdiction or situation. For example, if you want to know what the rules are about collecting information about a person’s religion for a health service in Wollongong, you can quickly see from the Index that you need to check APP 3.3-3.4 in the federal Privacy Act, as well as HPP 1 in the NSW health-specific legislation.
The two ‘Untangling’ guides use decision trees to quickly identify the relevant rules and exemptions in relation to the use and disclose of personal information.
PPIPA in Practice is an annotated guide to the NSW privacy laws, and Conducting Workplace Surveillance is a plain language guide to the Workplace Surveillance Act 2005 (NSW).
