Principle 8: Justice to protect privacy should be accessible

2.33 The law should provide a range of means to prevent, reduce or redress serious invasions of privacy and it should facilitate appropriate access to justice for those affected.

2.34 Many stakeholders submitted that any statutory cause of action or other remedy for serious invasions of privacy should be accessible to people with limited means as well as to those who can more easily afford the high costs of litigation.[40] The law should also make appropriate provision for people with disability or others who require assistance in obtaining access to justice.[41]

2.35 There is also widespread support for an approach that will encourage or make available a range of flexible and accessible alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.[42]
