Galexia has written a case note on the recently decided Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal decision, WL v La Trobe University.[1] The case examines what personal information can be collected and stored in order to come within the definition of personal information under the Information Privacy Act 2000 (Vic). The case note examines the facts and the decision of the case, as well as the implications for information handling after the decision.

This is a key decision as it is the most detailed consideration of the definition of ‘personal information’ in Australian privacy laws to date. For more information on the impact of this decision on your organisation, contact Galexia.

In completing this case note, Galexia has used the opportunity to examine various areas of privacy law, including freedom of information, the de-identification of personal data and the specific area of personal health information.
