Consumer Protection & Privacy
Data Republic takes consumer privacy seriously.
That’s why we’ve built infrastructure which protects consumer identity and doesn’t reveal any personal information. Only anonymous and de-identified data can be uploaded or exchanged in our environment. We happily comply with all Australian consumer laws as well as all principles of the Privacy Act 1988.
Personal Data Anonymized

How it all works
No customer personal information (PII) is ever seen by Data Republic users: only anonymous and de-identified data can be uploaded into our environment. Where there is data that relates to consumer activity, Data Republic mandates that Data Contributors replace personal information with anonymous ‘tokens’ before data is ingested. This means that there is never identifiable information about individuals within our environment. The tokenisation process is provided by Westpac Databank, which holds PII at bank-grade security.

Participating organisations (companies) may only append their existing record of consenting individuals with additional attribute information to better personalize service and experiences.
