Introduction to Privacy

Written by David Alizade PARTNER; Katie Wright SENIOR LAWYER; Gabrielle Beckett LAWYER on November 17th, 2020.    

The Privacy Act 1993 has governed information privacy in New Zealand for 27 years. On 1 December, it will be replaced with the Privacy Act 2020 (Act).

The Act uses the same principle based approach as its predecessor but includes new obligations for agencies and enforcement powers for the Privacy Commissioner, to provide greater protection for personal information in the digital age.

The Act controls how “agencies” collect, use, disclose, store and give access to “personal information”. “Personal information” is information about identifiable, living people.
