Research. Reveal. Reiterate

Complying with Australia’s privacy law reform

March 20th, 2014 |

Beaton Research + Consulting is complying with Australia’s privacy law reform.

The reforms to Australia’s Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Act) come into effect on 12 March 2014. These reforms require changes to the way research organisations like Beaton Research + Consulting collect, use and disclose ‘personal information’ and ‘sensitive information’ about individuals.

The reforms introduce 13 Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) to replace the existing National Privacy Principles (NPPs). The APPs set out minimum standards for the collection and storage, use and disclosure of information and requires entities to establish procedures to ensure that they comply with the Act.

Beaton Research + Consulting has always complied fully with the requirements of the Privacy Act and will continue to do so with the introduction of the APPs. In addition to the APPs, as a member of the Association of Market and Social Research Organisations (AMSRO), Beaton Research + Consulting will abide by the Privacy (Market and Social Research) Code 2014 (Code) which sets out how the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) are to be applied and complied with by AMSRO members in relation to the collection, retention, use and disclosure of personal information about the subjects of and participants in market and social research.

Our valued clients and those participating as respondents in our research can continue to be assured that Beaton Research + Consulting will respect your privacy and adhere to all relevant laws and guidelines. You can view our updated policies here.
