Information privacy: your rights and obligations


card with private written on it

Do you have access to personal or sensitive information through your role at Griffith University? You are responsible for keeping this information private; legislation says so.

It is important to familiarise yourself with the legislative requirements concerning information privacy to avoid a breach and possible disciplinary action.

No, we aren’t suggesting you read the entire contents of the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld) and the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld). You can if you want to, but we have a much simpler, and less time-consuming option.

We have created a Griffith Information Privacy training resource for all staff. This helpful website summarises the legislative requirements and explains your obligations using a series of ‘real world’ scenarios.  

We encourage you to visit the site to gain a better understanding of what information privacy means for you and your role.

Also, check out the Griffith University Privacy Plan. It outlines the University’s plan for the responsible collection and management of personal information.
