I do not agree with those details being out of scope.

If redacting try to keep the country code of the phone number, first 6 digits (or the BIN) of the credit card number, and only remove the username of the e-mail address.

The form of access is a copy of the document via the internet. I want access to copy of the original MP4 file. The video won't be edited to have graphics saying released via FOI Act or be processed to reduce size.

Dear Requester

The review rights period relevant to the Department's decision has now expired, no request for extension of time to apply has been received by the Department and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner has confirmed that no request for Information Commissioner review has been received.

The documents withheld during the review rights period can now be released to you following payment of the remainder of the charges. The amount of charges has been reassessed based on the actual work and documents. The new calculation results in an amount that exceeds the preliminary estimate to which you agreed on 28 October 2020. The department cannot increase the amount of a charge once agreed, and accordingly the amount required to finalise your matter ($224.8 (charge) less $56.20 (deposit)) remains $168.60.

Please see the attached credit card payment authority.
