An act or practice of an organisation is an interference with the privacy of an individual if it breaches the Australian Privacy Principles.

Section 13B – Related bodies corporate

The collection of personal information by a body corporate from a related body corporate, about an individual (other than sensitive information) is not an interference with the privacy of an individual....
