Australian Privacy Act Guidelines

Due to the changes in the Australian Privacy Act you need to make a choice about the kind of subscriber form and privacy policy you have on your FeedsyPages. 

This is because you may need to update your privacy procedures and disclosures when collecting private information via Feedsy.

We have tried to make this as easy as possible for you but before you go any further we need to point out that Feedsy is not a legal expert. It is recommended that you seek further legal advice before deciding on taking the Blue Pill or the Red Pill.


Blue Pill - You are exempt from the Privacy Act



Applies if you:

  • Have an annual turnover less than $3 million

What do you have to do:

  • Nothing extra

  • An opt-out "Unsubscribe" on all FeedsyMails
  • All unsubscribes are managed by Feedsy
