Mondaq reports the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner has issued two additional sets of guidelines on the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) relating to the rights of data subjects. The guidance focuses on APP 12 for “access to personal information” and APP 13 for “correction of personal information,” the report states, noting key points for each APP. For APP 12, for example, highlights such details as making access requests free of charge and allowing the refusal to grant access under certain circumstances. APP 13’s key points include the requirement to “take reasonable steps to correct personal information to ensure information held is accurate, up-to-date, relevant and not misleading.
