I feel my personal information is protected adequately by the Privacy Act and current government practices
Reasons To Disagree
The Privacy Act provides adequate protection against misuse of personal information by government departments and other official agencies (provided their employees behave honestly) but is woefully inadequate in regulating the activities private firms, particularly credit agencies, debt collectors and the like.

Reasons To AgreeNo reasons have yet been given to agree with the statement.
Reasons for Remain Neutral
The Act's principles are sound. It's much better than the UK equivalent which is hidebound by bureaucracy. That said, it does rely on people kepeing to the principles.
While I have no evidence to believe that my privacy has been violated - it may well have been - and I have no confidence that either the act or gummint practices give protection.
Maybe, maybe not. Who knows?
