Personal Information

In the context of Australian privacy law, personal information is any information or opinion about:

  • an identified individual; or
  • an individual who is reasonably identifiable (from the information).

Examples include an individual’s name, signature, address, telephone number, date of birth, medical records, bank account details, employment details and commentary or opinion about a person.

If information is de-identified it will no longer count as personal information. Note: it is hard to properly de-identify information, because it is easy to cross-reference information online and find out individuals' identities.

For more information, see the APP Guidelines.
