Common Sense

Common Sense is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids thrive in a rapidly changing world.

Privacy Compliance Manual (updated May 2018) provides assistance and guidance to non-government schools corresponding with the new requirements they must observe in relation to the preservation of an individual’s privacy.

It is essential for schools to be aware there are substantial penalties for serious or repeated interferences with privacy and the Information Commissioner has the power to seek enforceable undertakings. This is quite apart from the reputational damage that a school may suffer if the privacy of an individual is breached. The preparation of this Manual has been funded by the Associations of Independent Schools & Catholic Education Commissions in each Australian State and Territory.

State and Territory Regulation of Privacy

Each Australian state and territory regulates the management of personal information. In some states and territories, personal information is regulated by legislative schemes, in others by administrative regimes. The Australian Law Reform Commission website shares a great summary of these regulations.
