Global Advisory Panel (GAP) website.
The Global Advisory Panel (GAP) website is maintained by the GAP Secretariat which is bound by the Commonwealth of Australia’s Privacy Act 1988. The legislation includes 13 Australian Privacy Principles that set out how organisations should collect, use, keep secure and disclose personal information.
The Australian Privacy Principles give individuals a right to know what information an organisation holds about them and the right to amend it if it is incorrect. There are special provisions for sensitive and health information. GAP endorses fair information handling practices, which are consistent with Federal government legislation.
