Privacy Policy Law Change Due March 2014

The privacy policy requirements have recently changed with reforms of Australia’s privacy laws meaning all privacy policybusinesses have until March 2014 to become fully compliant.The review assessed each privacy policy against three criteria:

  1. Readability – must be easy to read and understand
  2. Relevance – should be relevant to the website and not too long
  3. Accessibility – must be easy to find on the website

Your Website Needs a Privacy Policy if you collect customer information

Privacy legislation now requires ALL Australian websites to post a Privacy Policy statement if they collect any customer or website visitor information:

  • Email addresses
  • Physical addresses
  • Telephone numbers
  • Credit card numbers, etc.

So even if you have a basic Contact Form on your website you MUST have a Privacy Policy.

Fact is this is normally the last thing we consider when it comes to our online presence, however it will be law in March 2014.
