Privacy and my business
Personal information is the lifeblood of many businesses. This is because a large number of business transactions rely on the use of personal information of customers.
When your business collects and uses personal information, you should protect and respect your customers’ privacy. Respecting privacy helps garner customer trust and that’s why we like to say ‘good privacy is good business’.
Your business may also have to comply with the Privacy Act. The Privacy Act sets out rules about information handling, including how your business may collect, use, store and disclose personal information. To find out if you need to comply go to Does my business need to comply?
