    NSW Planning Litigation for r**e at Bond University?

    I would like to pay for a few hours of advice in order to plan litigation if there is a cause of action. My story has been hard for me to recount because retelling it makes me cry and vomit, in a devastated frozen state that lasts whole days. I get flashbacks and I feel it is still happening...

    NSW Accidentally changed someone's password without permission. What do I do?

    So I worked in IT at my college (quit 4 months ago) and out of curiosity I looked up a friend's friend's profile to see what courses they were doing. I know this is already a breach of privacy. I was going to close the tab after I was done but I accidentally clicked on the "Generate and set...

    I am setting up an online website to sell products, and am stuck at posting my privacy policy. There are many generators out there but I doubt its validity. Does anyone know where I can get the right legal privacy policy?

    I have a privacy complaint against a Local Health District in NSW. This has been going on for over 18 months. Basically, I caught them in a major privacy breach involving almost 6 million records, including my own. They tried to cover it up by acting in an oppressive manner. There is extremely...
