Data management and privacy have become increasingly important issues for businesses and individuals in Australia. Data management, privacy policies and privacy procedures are vital tools for growing and established companies, especially those that collect personal information.
Prosper Law’s privacy and data protection legal services can ensure that your business is compliant with Australian privacy law and data protection laws.
As Australia moves towards a hybrid approach between principles-based and codified privacy laws (similar to the GDPR), it’s essential for businesses to invest in privacy and data compliance and legal advice.
Aside from the Privacy Act, there are other laws that aim to protect data and how it is used. These include the Spam Act and the Do Not Call Register Act. Our data protection lawyers also look after eCommerce clients and other businesses that operate online. Our ability to consider consumer, as well as data protection legal issues, provides us with a unique and commercial perspective to managing data protection.
Our data protection legal services include:
1. advising on the application of the Spam Act to email marketing and communication
2. managing legal risk and avoiding non-compliance with the Do Not Call Register Act
3. risk versus reward analysis on data held by a business
4. advising on liability for data breaches
5. the application of legal advice to the data processes, data flows and technologies used by your business
6. training for in-house legal teams and business stakeholders regarding privacy and data protection compliance

Data privacy refers to a person’s right or ability to determine for themselves when, how, and to what extent personal information about them is shared or communicated to others.
This personal information can be one’s name, location, contact information, or online or real-world behaviour. In Australia, privacy is governed by some State laws as well as the Federal Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
In Australia, there are strict obligations when it comes to sensitive information.
This is because of the impact to people if sensitive information is disclosed. It may have a significant consequence on a person’s life. The nature of sensitive information means that if a business inappropriately handles that information, the person affected might suffer discrimination, mistreatment, humiliation or embarrassment.
Companies that deal with sensitive information must take extra care.
