43.1 A number of the major private sector exemptions from the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) have been examined in preceding chapters. This chapter considers the remaining private sector exemptions and partial exemptions relating to personal, family or household affairs; related bodies corporate; and changes in partnerships.
 This Report distinguishes between exemptions and partial exemptions to the requirements set out in the Privacy Act, and exceptions to the privacy principles. An exemption applies where a specified entity or a class of entity is not required to comply with any requirements in the Privacy Act. A partial exemption applies where a specified entity or a class of entity is required to comply with either: (1) some, but not all, of the provisions of the Privacy Act; or (2) some or all of the provisions of the Privacy Act, but only in relation to certain of its activities. An exception applies where a requirement in the privacy principles does not apply to any entity in a specified situation or in respect of certain conduct. See Ch 33.
