This submission is to the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet as part of of its post-ALRC consultation on privacy law reform. The submission covers all the parts of the ALRC report which are not covered separately in the Centre's three other submissions - on the Unified Privacy Principles (UPPs); on Credit Reporting, and on Health & Research Privacy.
The main topics covered in the submission are: Part B - Developing Technology Part C - Interaction, Inconsistency and Fragmentation Part D - The Privacy Principles (structure, consent) Part F - Office of the Privacy Commissioner Part G - Credit Reporting Provisions Part H - Health Services and Research Part I - Children, Young People and Adults Requiring Assistance Part J - Telecommunications
The submission reserves comment on those matters - Exemptions and a Private Right of Action - which the government has expressly deferred to a second round of changes.
