The ACNC Act gives the ACNC a range of powers and functions to register and regulate Australian charities. In carrying out its functions the ACNC will handle information – that is it will collect, receive, record, store, disclose, publish or use information – about charities and not-for-profits and the people involved in governing these organisations. We may also handle information about people or organisations that are involved in, supporting, providing services to or are in some way interested in or related to these organisations.

The purpose of this policy is to outline the high-level principles that guide all of the ACNC information-handling obligation.
