warning: a privacy policy is not a set and forget document!

Keeping you Privacy Policy up to date and compliant with the latest changes in global privacy law is only the first part of the process.

As your business or NFP's circumstances change, your Privacy Policy needs to be audited against your Internal Business Processes (practices, procedures and documents – as well as what is actually done, in other words, your Privacy Culture).

As Australia moves towards the standards set by the EU, including potentially larger fines + regular audits, legal reviews will become even more important.

Please contact us to discuss a legal review of your Privacy Policy v. Internal Business Processes + Privacy Culture.

consequences of non-compliance with Australian Privacy Law

There are significant potential penalties that can be imposed for non-compliance, and for repeat breaches, including enforceable undertakings and fines of up to $1.7 million per violation.
