Data Protection Act

The Data Protection Act in a nutshell is a series of laws in Australia, known as the Australian Privacy Principles or APPs that exist to protect people’s private information. If that information isn’t protected according to those laws by a company, that company and its directors may be held liable and face financial, and in some cases even criminal, liability.
