Outline, in your own words, what you think that APP 5 and APP 6 of the Australian Privacy Principles
mean for an organisation's customer service requirements. Include an example, for each of APP 5
and APP 6, where you have experienced the principle in action. 

Your answer
App 5: An APP entity that collects the personal information of an individual must take reasonable steps to
inform an individual that they are aware of those matters.
Example: If a worker is involved in a crime, police asks the owner about that person’s detail, owner may give
the worker’s information to the police and notify the person.
APP 6: An APP entity that holds personal information of an individual can only use or disclose that
information for a particular purpose for which it was collected.
Example: If a person is seriously injured, his usual health service provider may disclose his personal
information to another health service provider who will treat the person.
