Their goal is to establish standards for the collection and handling of personal information (as defined by the Act) by Commonwealth agencies.
There are 13 principles in the APP framework and relate to organizations needing to make customers aware of how their personal information is being collected/used/shared and giving customers the right to access their data on request.
Does your business need APP compliance?
APP applies to government agencies and private organizations that deal with the personal information of Australian residents and have an annual turnover of more than $3 million (subject to exceptions). This includes the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data.
The guidelines apply to any organization covered by The Privacy Act.
Small business operators, political parties, state/territory authorities are a few examples of organizations that are not covered by APP (with exceptions).
