Victoria Government Gazette

Disclosure of Private Information

Please note that information published in the Gazette is fully discoverable on-line through search engines such as Google and Yahoo. Therefore, notices that include both a person's name and private address when submitted for publication must be accompanied by a signed 'Public Disclosure of Information in the Government Gazette' form. Alternatively, where there is no legislative requirement to publish full details, it may be appropriate to modify the copy, for example, by deleting the private address entirely or substituting a business address for the private address.
