Avoidance of controls on information matching

108 Avoidance of controls on information matching through use of exceptions to information privacy principles

Despite section 97A, if the collection or disclosure of information is authorised by an information matching provision, nothing in subclause (2)(d)(i) of principle 2 or paragraph (e)(i) of principle 11 authorises or permits the collection or disclosure of that information for the purposes of—

(a)

any authorised information matching programme; or

(b)

any information matching programme the objective of which is similar in nature to any authorised information matching programme.

Section 108: amended, on 22 August 2017, by section 6 of the Enhancing Identity Verification and Border Processes Legislation Act 2017 (2017 No 42).
