As indicated already, the privacy instruction is not law and therefore it does not give a person any right to pursue compensation or a legal remedy. A person who believes that there has been a breach of privacy by a State Government department or agency should firstly approach the department and if no satisfactory response is achieved, then contact the Privacy Committee http://www.archives.sa.gov.au/privacy/index.html
