Privacy has become one of the biggest issues in dealing with customers, suppliers and staff. The Privacy Act has been designed to promote and protect the privacy of an individual. It follows various guidelines issued by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-orporation and Development) for the protection of privacy and the regulation of trans-border flows of personal data.
Businesses today need to ensure their staff understands what is required of them when dealing with individuals’ personal information. To ensure there are no flaws in your system, it is imperative that each and every employee understands what they can and cannot do with personal information.
The Privacy Act lays down 12 privacy principles – some of which permit correction of information and prohibit the passing on of information.
Failure to comply with the Act can result in your business having to deal with time-consuming complaints, whether directly from an aggrieved individual, from the Privacy Commissioner, or in front of the Human Rights Review Tribunal.
