Here's where you'll find the stuff we get asked about... a lot...
Data Privacy Register is an independent privacy framework powering privacy registration, free data breach alerts, the latest privacy news and consumer rights advocacy. The key principles within our framework centre on transparency, disclosure and control.
We are committed to driving stronger privacy protection, transparency and control for Australians.
The Data Privacy Register's scope is far reaching. We offer far more than just privacy registration. As a part of our consumer advocacy vision and our mission to drive better privacy standards for Australians, we also provide consumers with up-to-date privacy news, a free data breach alert service, fact sheets, breach assistance and privacy related documentation.
There are many benefits to demonstrating compliance with the Data Privacy Register principles.
First and foremost, your organisation will have a clearer understanding of its privacy practices, and will be in a position to better manage privacy matters.
The Data Privacy Register offers an independent registration that allows your organisation to publicly promote your commitment to your customers and clients regarding the security of their personal information.
Compliance with the APP and/or the GDPR is a legal requirement for organisations that are covered under these two pieces of legislation. We recommend checking whether your organisation is required to be compliant.
The APP and GDPR do not currently offer a certification for compliant businesses. As such, the Data Privacy Register framework is an extension of current Australian privacy legislation but does not replace or supersede it.
Nope! While it's helpful to know the basics, we've developed a range of fact sheets to help you understand what is required to successfully attain registration. The registrationprocess itself is simple and involves a self assessment that has plenty of guidance to assist organisations in sourcing the required supporting documentation.
The Data Privacy Register has nearly completed beta testing of its registration framework. At completion of this testing phase, we'll open up registration to all organisations.
We love your enthusiasm, but we're not quite ready to accept applications from organisations yet. We're still in the final stages of testing with a handful of organisations. You can, however, register your interest and we'll add you to the wait list. Once we're up and running, you'll be the first to know.
