Privacy code for access to Queensland property data - January 2009
In late 2008 Galexia developed a Code of Conduct for bulk data access to identified information in the Queensland Valuation and Sales System (QVAS) database - the short title is the QVAS Code of Conduct.
The Code covers privacy protections and complaints mechanisms for access to information about real property transactions in Queensland. The Code was submitted to the QLD Cabinet in late 2008 and is the subject of public consultations in 2009.
Galexia assisted the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Water and a working group of information broker industry representatives to develop this Code from scratch. The project included research on privacy issues, stakeholder workshops and the development of an explanatory memorandum.
The Code adopts best practice approaches to privacy protection and governance issues.
