These are two things that have been occupying me in the last week. Firstly, the Australian privacy laws and credit reporting laws change on 14 March. Where previously only businesses with a turnover of greater than 3 Million AUD had to abide by these, they never cover everyone, even clubs and not for profits. I am not a lawyer and can’t offer advice about legal aspects but I can tell you that it’s important to do the following
– have a Privacy Procedure to show how you implement. I’ll be honest with you, I am currently a solo operator so what I decided to do was openly publish this policy. If you wish to see it, I will make it available to you.
– check your IT systems and those of your partners . Make sure your devices and computers are protected appropriately. I will be doing further research into cloud providers and implications and will be back in touch about this.
Secondly, I realised that search engines were not finding my own new web site. This was because I hadn’t properly submitted the site to them. Has your developer done this for you or is it something you would like to know more about? If people are interested, I can post the simple steps I went through for anyone else who wants to do it themself.
