Understand New Zealand's privacy and related laws
The Privacy Act – our State Highway 1 of privacy law
The Privacy Act is our State Highway 1 of privacy law. It’s important legislation that applies to public and private sector agencies alike. We all need to know about it. Get an overview here.
We need to understand more than the Privacy Act
Do you know how New Zealand law addresses the collection, use and sharing of personal information? It involves more than you might think. This article describes how it works, and explains the rules of precedence.
Specific statutory provisions – other roads
The Privacy Act may be State Highway 1, but it’s not the only road and often you’ll find all manner of inroads into it as well as detours and bypasses. We’ve built a laws library to summarise them: InfoProvisions Search.
