Understand Privacy Law and how it relates to your community organisation.

Are you handling the personal details of volunteers, members or clients? Privacy laws can be tricky for community organisations to navigate, particularly with developments in technology and increasing numbers of organisations collaborating to deliver services. Attend this seminar to make sure your organisation is doing the right thing. You’ll learn about:

  • how to legally collect, use, handle and store personal information

  • documents, systems and checks you should put in place today

  • practical examples of good and bad practice

  • the latest amendments to privacy laws.

Morning tea will be provided.
