Data Sovereignty

Data Sovereignty deals with the regulations that a government mandates for binary digital data that has been converted or stored “in country.” “In country” meaning that the specific data created in that country will be subject to the laws of that country. These privacy regulations are designed to keep sensitive data inside the country’s borders and are very strict on what data may be exported from said country. These laws vary from country to country – region to region.

TokenEx Privacy Policy

Office of the Australian Information Commissioner – Australia

The Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) regulates how personal information is handled. The Privacy Act defines personal information as: information or an opinion, whether true or not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable.

  • Common examples are an individual’s name, signature, address, telephone number, date of birth, medical records, bank account details and commentary or opinion about a person. In addition to the APPs, the Privacy Act also covers more specific matters that entities, including some small businesses, may be required to comply with.

The Privacy Act includes thirteen Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), which apply to some private sector organizations, as well as most Australian and Norfolk Island Government agencies. These are collectively referred to as ‘APP entities’. The Privacy Act also regulates the privacy component of the consumer credit reporting system, tax file numbers, and health and medical research.
