Privacy Notification Statement

What is a notification statement?

Under Australian privacy law, if you are the kind of business that requires a privacy policy, you also need to take reasonable steps notify individuals when you collect their information.

This can be done with a notification statement.

Where to put a notification statement?

Notification statements may appear:

  • as a popup when people navigate to a website or app; and/or
  • at the end of online forms where individuals enter personal information like names, email addresses, and payment information.

What should a notification statement look like?

Minimalist approach

Some businesses use a minimalist approach, requiring users to click a checkbox next to a statement like this

I agree to the terms and conditions and the privacy policy.

The statement typically contains links to the privacy policy and terms of use.

Best practice

Best practice is to have a notification statement containing more details about how you collect, use, and disclose personal information.

See the Treescribe templates page for an example notification statement.
