The New Zealand Privacy Act went into effect in June 2020 and governs the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information by "agencies" as defined by the law. It gives all persons greater control over the way their personal information is handled.
The New Zealand Privacy Act ensures the following rights:
- The right to access such personal information, and where such personal information may be readily retrieved.
- The right to rectification: Agencies must, on request or of its own initiative, take steps that are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure (having regard to the purposes for which the information may lawfully be used) the information is accurate, up to date, and not misleading.
- The right to correction of information (this includes deletion).
