Complaints about South Australian Government
South Australian Government agencies are required to comply with the Information Privacy Principles Instruction in the way they manage, collect, use and store personal information.
If you believe a South Australian Government agency has failed to comply with the Information Privacy Principles Instruction and has breached your privacy you should, in the first instance, contact a senior officer in that agency to try and resolve the issue.
If the agency is unable to help you, or you are dissatisfied with the response, you can lodge a complaint with the authority best placed to deal with your concerns.
Below are some examples of complaint categories, and the appropriate body to lodge them with.
|Complaint Category||Who to lodge with|

The Office of the Commissioner for the Public Sector and Employment
