The Information Privacy Principles (IPPs) in section 14 of the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) set out standards for handling personal information, that legally bind agencies. IPPs 8-11 deal with using and disclosing personal information. These guidelines are the Privacy Commissioner's view of how IPPs 8-11 work and have been prepared after consulting Privacy Contact Officers in relevant agencies. These guidelines are not legally binding.
