In 2021, ConnectID became the first non-government operator of a digital identity exchange to receive accreditation under the Australian Government’s Trusted Digital Identity Framework (TDIF).

As part of our ongoing compliance with the TDIF privacy-related requirements, this Annual Transparency Report provides an overview of requests made by an Enforcement Body to ConnectID for Digital Identity Information in the previous 12 months.

Capitalised terms defined and interpreted in TDIF bear the same meaning in this report.

Guiding Principles
By nature of its design as a peer-to-peer digital identity exchange, as a rule, the ConnectID platform does not handle, see or hold Digital Identity Information. There may be limited exceptions to this rule as detailed in our Privacy Policy.

Due to the sensitivity of the information requested, ConnectID withholds disclosure of Digital Identity Information until and unless a subpoena, court order, warrant or other formal legal process (Legal Request) is served on ConnectID requesting the information. This position ensures that ConnectID remains compliant with our privacy obligations under TDIF and the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).

All Legal Requests that are received by ConnectID will be carefully reviewed to ensure that the Enforcement Body is legally entitled to the Digital Identity Information that they seek.
