103 Immunity for TF providers for actions of users


A TF provider is immune from liability in civil proceedings for claims that a user, when using an accredited digital identity service provided by the TF provider, has caused harm or damage to an individual or organisation or has themselves suffered harm or damage.


However, subsection (1) does not apply if an act or omission by a TF provider relating to the alleged harm or damage constitutes bad faith or gross negligence.


In this section,—

TF provider means a TF provider and (as relevant) their or its officers and those involved in the management of, employed by, or contracted by, the TF provider

using an accredited digital identity service means—


using an accredited service for a transaction with a relying party; or


communicating or interacting with a TF provider in relation to the provision of that service to the user.
