Privacy Act, obviously from sometime in the twentieth century

This thing is so obviously not written (yes, or amended) with websites in mind. If you’re not a financial institution or dealing with medical records, there’s really not that much there for you. Sigh. On the plus side, there really isn’t that much there for you. Privacy, it seems, is a murky battlefield between apparently redundant legislation and media-fuelled community expectations.

Having said that, the National Privacy Hotline (1300 363 992) is ridiculously helpful, albeit (necessarily) cautious in the words of advice that its representatives give! Definitely worth a call if you’re struggling to find something on their website and just want clarification.
