How to use these resources
Start with Privacy, Marketing and Cookies for a plain language guide to your legal obligations when engaging in common marketing-related activities. Our guide explains your obligations under the Privacy Act, Spam Act and Do Not Call Register Act, as well as European and Californian laws if you are marketing to potential customers overseas.
The Summary of Requirements offers an at-a-glance summary, in plain language, of which requirements apply to common marketing-related scenarios, such as:
- Collecting contact details to add to a marketing database
- Adding data to a customer profile to use later for tailored messaging
- Sending a marketing email, and
- Adding a cookie to a person’s device.
For each of these scenarios, the Summary of Requirements also offers a ‘best practice position’, which is a description of the position to take so as to enable compliance with all of the laws mentioned in the guide.
Then, if you need a quick answer to the question ‘can we use or disclose this?’, review Untangling the APPs. Untangling the APPs offers a set of decision trees, with yes/no answers determining your path, to quickly guide you through the Australian Privacy Principles, and all the exemptions to those principles. As well as the Use & Disclosure principle (APP 6), it incorporates the rules about direct marketing (APP 7), cross-border disclosures (APP 8), and government related identifiers (APP 9).
Finally, if you need to understand if and how de-identified data could be a solution to your privacy compliance needs – and when it won’t – see Demystifying De-identification.
