The Privacy Commissioner has shared details of a recent breach Tarry at your own risk with old informationcase in which a zipped folder of files was given to a contractor as part of their contract for services. The folder mistakenly contained a sub-folder of files related to old job applications. The contractor acted appropriately by immediately deleting the records. The organisation was found to have breached privacy principles by retaining the applications for longer than is necessary and in breach of their own policies.
