The ABC is required to comply with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) in the Privacy Act 1988. The ABC Privacy Policy is published on the Privacy page of the ABC corporate website. The Policy sets out the kind of information the ABC collects, the circumstances in which the ABC may use and disclose such information, how individuals may access their personal information, and how and to whom individuals may complain about a breach of privacy.

Data breach notification

Data breach notification laws make it mandatory for the ABC to report a data breach that is likely to result in serious harm to any affected individuals. Notification must be made to the affected individuals and the regulator.

In 2019-20 the ABC did not experience any data breaches that required notification to the Privacy Commissioner.
