We surveyed over 1,900 Australian adults to build a picture around privacy attitudes and experiences in Australia as a part of our Australian Community Attitudes to Privacy Survey 2023.

In this video, 5 Australians share their thoughts on how organisations protect personal information.

Organisations and privacy

Speaker 1: I feel like when I share my personal information online I expect the organisation to…

Speaker 2: [Breathes out]

Speaker 1: Hmm … keep it to themselves?

Speaker 2: I don’t know what they do with my personal information and data.

Speaker 3: Personally trusting less entities, less organisations than I used to.

Speaker 1: I am a lot more concerned about, like, different organisations keeping information for years now as I’m getting older.

Speaker 4: What’s scariest is that I don’t know what they will do with it.

Speaker 2: I don’t understand it enough.

Speaker 1: You get so used to just adding your personal data online without stopping to think about why.

Speaker 4: How much is too much?

Speaker 5: To me, that’s just information gathering to share with other people, I don’t think that’s necessary. They’re making money out of me. Where’s my 10%? [Laughs].

Speaker 2: Please keep my personal information private because I’m a private person and that’s the way I wanna stay.
