Am trying to work out how much of an implicit-agreeing-to-allow-all-the-govt-departments-to-share-my-data-between-them panopticon my.gov.au is.

Any thoughts, fediverse?

From my.gov.au/mygov/content/html/p:

> By linking your myGov account to a Member Service, you agree that the Member Service may collect from myGov, use and disclose to myGov your personal information as set out in this privacy notice, to the extent those actions related to myGov. Member Services may have their own privacy notice that is applicable to the handling of your personal information on their records.

So by "linking a service" to mygov, and given "services" is newspeak for a government department such as Centerlink or the ATO, it means that you're implicitly allowing these government departments to share information about you between them?
