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. A list of contact details for all South Australian Government Departments can be found on the sa.gov.au website.
If no satisfactory response is achieved, then a complaint can be lodged with the Privacy Committee. Complaints must be in writing. For information on how to make a complaint, see the State Records SA information on Making a Privacy Complaint.
