Dedicated Data and Privacy Lawyers for Retailers

The globe is now a technology-driven economy, and subsequently, data and privacy protection has become a key business risk. At Gladwin Legal, we understand the importance of ensuring our clients have compliant and thorough data protection procedures and privacy policies in place.

Businesses with a turnover of $3 million or more, or those that collect ‘sensitive information’, require a privacy policy. However, many businesses choose to implement a privacy policy to encourage customer trust and provide clear guidelines for the business when dealing with data, which can mitigate potential liability in the future.

As a leading privacy lawyer for businesses, we specialise in data protection law. Our specialist legal team of data and privacy lawyers can draft privacy policies and privacy procedures, along with data policies, data breach notifications for your business that comply with Australian corporate law and regulations and protect your business.

    Data & Privacy Law Frequently Asked Questions

    Any information that is collected and which could be used to identify an individual.  Typically this includes name, birthdate, address, email address, identification documents, bank accounts and more.

    You do not need a privacy policy if your turnover is less than $3 million per year (not just from your website but across your entire business) and if you are not collecting Sensitive Information (as defined in the National Privacy Principles).  However, most businesses opt to include a privacy policy as it makes their business look larger and more professional. More importantly, it clarifies for their customers what information is being collected and how it’s being used.  This saves any ill will that may be generated by using personal information to undertake marketing to your customers.

    If you suspect a data breach, you must assess whether the individuals involved could suffer any loss. If they may, they must be notified so that they can mitigate the loss. You should also refer to the FAQ below about notifiable data breaches.

    Yes, there are restrictions. Under the Privacy Act 1988, businesses must take reasonable steps to ensure that overseas recipients do not breach the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs). This includes obtaining consent from the individual, ensuring the recipient is subject to similar privacy protections, or implementing binding corporate rules. Non-compliance can result in penalties and damage to your business’ reputation.

    Your business can retain customer/client information only as long as it is needed for legal or business purposes. Once the information is no longer required, it should be securely deleted or de-identified. The Privacy Act 1988 requires businesses to take reasonable steps to ensure the information is kept accurate, complete, and up to date, and to dispose of it when no longer needed.

    A data breach under the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme occurs when personal information held by an organization is lost, accessed, disclosed without authorization, or compromised. This includes situations where data is stolen, accidentally sent to the wrong person, hacked, or otherwise exposed. If the breach is likely to result in serious harm to individuals, the organization must notify the affected individuals and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) as soon as possible.
