COMMONWEALTH GOVERNMENT AGENCY OR ORGANISATION PROTECTION OF IDENTITIES
The Privacy Act does not over-ride specific legal obligations relating to use or disclosure of personal information. “Law” includes Commonwealth, State and Territory Legislation, as well as common law. If we are required by law to use or disclose personal information we have no choice and must do so. In accordance with the Act, if an organisation is authorised by law to use or disclose personal information it means the organisation can decide whether to do so or not. The authority is there but the organisation can ultimately use its discretion accordingly.
