Submission to the Attorney-General: Privacy Act Review Report

It’s time to introduce privacy laws that work to actively protect Australians in the digital economy. CPRC broadly supports many of the proposals outlined in the Privacy Act Review Report but recommends that the Federal Government strengthen protections further by:

  • modernising what it means to be identifiable to cover information obtained from any source and by any means
  • implementing genuine privacy by default measures instead of placing the onus on consumers to opt-out of settings that are not designed with their interests in mind
  • requiring all businesses to assess and ensure how they collect and use data leads to fair and safe outcomes that are in the interests of their customers and the community
  • empowering the regulator to swiftly ban or restrict harmful practices that cause direct and clear consumer harms, and
  • providing a clear pathway for redress when things go wrong.
