GAMING & LEISURE Alert: Privacy Law Update

12 December 2013


Reforms to the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) will take  effect on 12 March 2014. The changes introduce 13 new ‘Australian Privacy Principles’ (APPs) which will replace the ‘National Privacy Principles’ (NPPs). Clubs which are subject to the Privacy Act will need to be ready to comply with the new regime from 12 March 2014. The APPs cover some familiar territory, however, they expand on the NPPs in key areas. This update flags some of the important issues, but the amendments are significant and Clubs should develop a good working knowledge of the APPs by 12 March 2014.
