Privacy and Data Protection

MinterEllison’s privacy and data protection team advises clients across different industry sectors on local and international privacy and data protection issues.

We regularly assist with the development of privacy compliance tools and privacy policies and statements; conduct privacy audits of organisations to assist with compliance; advise financial institutions in relation to privacy implications associated with credit reporting and providing financial services; advise on marketing and promotional strategies (including email spam and other direct marketing); assist multinational organisations in relation to trans-border data flows; and assist organisations in the event of data and information security breaches.

In light of continuing proposals to change privacy laws in Australia, we keep abreast of developments and advise clients on the possible future changes to the law.
