Privacy is a right

You have a right to ask why your information is being collected, what will it be used for and who else it may be given to, and you can ask to see your own personal information.

Privacy is the law

These rights are now enforceable under the Information Privacy and Data Act. This law requires local councils to protect the privacy of your personal information.
