The Australian Capital Territory Information Privacy Act 2014 (the Act) is a law that regulates the handling of personal information by Australian Capital Territory (ACT) public sector agencies. The Act mandates that ACT government entities comply with a set of territory privacy principles to protect individuals’ right to privacy.

The Act sets out 13 Territory Privacy Principles (TPPs) that must be followed by ACT public sector agencies when collecting, storing, using, and disclosing personal information. The TPPs include topics related to personal information collection, use, disclosure, storage, and security and are comparable to the Victorian Information Privacy Principles.

The Act establishes the Office of the Information Commissioner, whose duties include regulating and upholding the Act's provisions, investigating privacy concerns, and promoting awareness of individuals' rights and responsibilities.

Under the Act, individuals have the right to access and correct their personal information held by ACT public sector agencies. Individuals can also complain to the Territory’s Information Commissioner if they believe that any act of the public agency has interfered with their privacy.
