Information Privacy Act
This website provides information about Information Privacy in Queensland.
The Information Privacy Act 2009 (the IP Act):
- gives you a right to apply to access and amend your own personal information
- details the privacy principles public sector agencies must comply with
- establishes the Privacy Commissioner as a deputy to the Information Commissioner with particular responsibility for Information Privacy in Queensland
From 1 July 2009, the IP Act replaced Queensland’s administrative privacy scheme under Information Standard 42 and Information Standard 42A.
A new complaints mechanism for formal complaints about agency breaches of the privacy principles or other requirements of the IP Act will be available from late 2009.
