- A service provider required to comply with the data retention provisions in Part 5-1A of the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979
Consideration of the Australian Privacy Principles
We have considered the following and, where possible and applicable, maintain controls that we believe are adequate and appropriate:
- considering if an individual can have the option of transacting anonymously or using a pseudonym where practicable
- the collection of solicited personal information and receipt of unsolicited personal information including giving notice about collection
- how personal information can be used and disclosed (including overseas)
- maintaining the quality of personal information
- keeping personal information secure
- offering the right for individuals to access and correct their personal information
