The Directive regulates and applies to the processing of personal data, regardless of whether such processing is automated or not, where the processing activities relate to the offering of goods and/or services to data subjects in the EU, or to the monitoring of behaviour that takes place within the EU, regardless of whether or not the data is processed in the EU. The GDPR may also apply to entities with no physical presence in the EU. We collect, hold, use and disclose personal information to carry out our functions or activities also under the Privacy Act 1988 (“Privacy Act”).

Personal data are information about or relating to a person (e.g. name, address, postal address, telephone number, IP address) which can be used to ascertain the identity of that person. Personal data are any information relating to an identifiable natural person. Natural persons are considered identifiable if they can be identified directly or indirectly – in particular by linking them to an identifier such as a name, identification number, location data or an online identifier.

  • Implement a privacy by design approach to compliance;
  • Be able to demonstrate compliance with privacy principles and obligations;
  • Adopt transparent information handling practices.
