Privacy, the Internet and transborder data flows: An Australian perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Cross-border transfer of personal information is now more common than ever before. Indeed, modern technologies like the Internet would simply not work in the absence of such transfers. At the same time, cross-border transfer of personal information is associated with serious privacy risks. Taking an Australian perspective, this paper examines how the law seeks to balance these two considerations – the need for transfer, and the need for privacy protection.
