CRIMES (DOMESTIC AND PERSONAL VIOLENCE) ACT 2007 - As at 28 March 2020 - Act 80 of 2007 - NOTES

Note to Division 4

Section 25 of the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 provides that a public sector agency is not required to comply with a number of information protection principles (including those that restrict the use and disclosure of personal information) where non-compliance is permitted under an Act. The exchange of information in accordance with this Division is therefore not limited by those information protection principles.
