Privacy and you

Under NSW privacy law, personal information means any information or opinion that allows an individual to be identified. The laws apply to NSW public sector agencies, public and private health practitioners and certain businesses in NSW, and they must abide by these laws when they collect, store, use, dispose or disclose your personal information.

If you believe your privacy has been breached, you can make a complaint. For more information about how to request your personal or health information, or how to make a complaint, click here.

There are also things you can do to help keep your privacy safe:

  • Never give out personal details to strangers
  • Always use privacy settings when on social media or using apps
  • Shred documents containing your personal details
  • Keep passwords, PINS and other codes safe and do not share them.
