PRIVACY ACT 1988 - SECT 93

Relief for breach etc. of certain obligations of confidence

             (1)  A confider may recover damages from a confidant in respect of a breach of an obligation of confidence with respect to personal information.

             (2)  Subsection (1) does not limit or restrict any other right that the confider has to relief in respect of the breach.

             (3)  Where an obligation of confidence exists with respect to personal information about a person other than the confider, whether the obligation arose under a contract or otherwise, the person to whom the information relates has the same rights against the confidant in respect of a breach or threatened breach of the obligation as the confider has.
