(3) As with other private and non-government sector entities, the ACT does not regulate the collection and storage of private information by clubs. Where applicable, the Australian Privacy Principles and Commonwealth laws regulate the collection, storage, and use of personal information by entities other than the ACT Government (and its contracted entities).
(4) The ACT does not set technical specifications for the storage of data by clubs as the privacy rules and regulations that apply to non-government entities are set by the Commonwealth.
(5) As noted in the responses to the previous questions, the legal and regulatory obligations of clubs in relation to information they collect depends upon the provisions of any relevant legislation that applies to them. There is not a general provision in ACT legislation setting information management standards for clubs. Provisions of the Privacy Act and the APPs, as they apply to a club, or other legislation imposing requirements for the purposes of particular regulatory schemes may be relevant to the treatment of information by clubs, including whether there are any limits on disclosure to third parties.
