Data Privacy

In Australia and most other countries you will find that your customers have privacy rights. In Australia customer's data is protected by the Australian Privacy Act 1988. In Europe there is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

What is personal information?

Personal information is information or an opinion about an individual where the individual's identity is clear or where someone could reasonably work out that the information is related to a specific individual.

Personal information can include:

  • Person's Name
  • Email Address
  • Postal Address
  • Phone Number
  • Drivers License Details
  • Signature
  • Fingerprint
  • Photographs or surveillance footage of an individual
  • Comments written about an individual
  • Financial details

To be considered personal information, the information or opinion must be recorded. It will be considered personal information regardless of whether it is true or not.

Some personal information is considered particularly sensitive, and these types of information are subject to higher protections under most laws.

This includes information such as:

  • Race or ethnicity
  • Political opinions
  • Memberships to political associations
