All Australian government, private sector and not-for-profit organizations with an annual turnover of more than $3 million must handle must comply with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) outlined in the Australian Privacy Act 1988. 

In order to comply with the Privacy Act 1988, organizations must notify customers about the collection and use of their data. In most circumstances, this information is included in Terms & Conditions or Privacy Policy Collection Statements which must be approved by customers during a transaction. It is the responsibility of the Data Contributor (the organization authorizing access to data on the Data Republic Senate platform) to notify and manage customer information according to the APPs. 

Data Republic works closely with Data Contributors to ensure best practice communication and compliance with the Australian Privacy Principles; and that all uses of data are ethical, legal, and within the reasonable expectations of their customers.
