APF policy statement re privacy and the media

24 Mar 2009
Description

A framework is needed within which the media are able to work when making decisions about whether the collection of personal data, and the publication of personal data, unreasonably infringes privacy. That framework needs to be filled out with guidelines in relation to particular categories of people, data and contexts. The framework and guidelines need to be brief, clear and practical. They must not put the media in a straitjacket, but must enable them to exercise professional judgement in each situation as it arises.

This policy document is a framework and a set of guidelines devised by the Australian Privacy Foundation to aid the media to make decisions about whether the collection of personal data, and the publication of personal data, unreasonably infringes privacy.
