Privacy is about protecting information that says who we are, what we do, what we think, what we believe.
What is personal information?
The Information Privacy Act 2009 defines personal information is ‘any information or an opinion, including information or an opinion forming part of a database, whether true of not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an individual whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion’.
Making a complaint about breach of privacy
