Issues paper 31: review of privacy

17 Oct 2006

Do Australians feel that their privacy is adequately protected? Is it possible for privacy laws to keep up with technology such as data matching, facial recognition and even body odour measurement? Do younger people care as much about privacy as their elders? hese are some of the questions being asked in this ALRC issues paper. In the course of this review, the ALRC will make recommendations for changes in the law, to ensure adequate protections are in place. The ALRC will also begin a period of public consultation, and will meet with interested persons and organisations across Australia. Further consultation documents will be released later in 2006 with a final report due to be completed in March 2008.
