Privacy laws change tomorrow

Important changes to the Privacy Act 1988 commence on 12 March 2014.

The changes include a new set of Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) that will regulate the handling of personal information by Australian Government agencies, businesses with a turnover of more than $3 million or those trading in personal information and all private health service providers.
