Privacy topics

This page provides links to topic-area specific information about privacy.

Nothing in a privacy topics page limits the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner's (OAIC) ability to investigate complaints under the Privacy Act 1988 (the Privacy Act) or to apply the Australian Privacy Principles (or the Information Privacy Act 2014 (ACT) and Territory Privacy Principles for ACT Government agencies) in the way that seems most appropriate to the facts of the case being dealt with.

Our responses to these questions are advisory only and not legally binding. You may need to seek separate legal advice on the application of the Privacy Act to your particular situation.

You can find more information on these topics in the Applying privacy law, Privacy fact sheets, Privacy agency resources, Privacy business resources and Privacy sections of this website.
