Privacy

The Privacy Act 1988 is in place to ensure that an individual’s privacy, family, home or correspondence is not arbitrarily or unlawfully interfered with. Any time personal information is collected, for instance when a member signs up, their image is recorded on CCTV or a pokie payout is given, the organisation is required to have processes in place to protect the privacy of the individual. The Australian Privacy Principles defines how an organisation can meet the requirements of the Act and the Australian Information Commissioner has the power to enforce these requirements which can include fines up to $1.7 million for the organisation and $340,000 for officers.

DWS undertake a range of services on behalf of our clients aimed at a proactive approach to meeting privacy requirements. Our services include the following:

  • Development of policies and procedures to define expectations and how legislative obligations will be met.
  • Training of workers to make them aware of your policy and their obligations for implementing the policy
  • Consultation and advisory service to enable compliance with current legislative and best practice.

The outcome for your organisation is your patron’s confidence that their personal information is safe and the reassurance that you are meeting your legislative obligations.
