The Privacy Act

The Privacy Act covers all personal information (information about an identifiable individual) that is collected, held or used by individuals and organisations in New Zealand. This means that the provisions of the Privacy Act impact on everyone on a regular basis. However, despite this, the provisions of the Privacy Act are often misunderstood and misapplied which leaves individuals and organisations at risk.
