Do you understand the requirements of your business when it comes to data protection and privacy?
People are becoming more aware of their privacy and protecting it. Privacy issues are becoming more important in our day-to-day lives, even more so with our increased presence online. We understand the intricacies of balancing personalised service with privacy and recognise the challenges you face.
If you're in business, making sure you understand how to protect your customer's privacy is vital. If you've been struck with a privacy breach, knowing what to do and whether it is a notifiable breach could be the difference between your business's success and being caught out by the law.
The Privacy Act 2020 governs how you collect, use, disclose, store, retain and give access to personal information. This also applies to any actions taken by an overseas organisation if they are carrying out business in New Zealand - regardless of where the person whose information it is, is located, or where the information was collected or held.
The Privacy Commissioner can investigate any action which seems to have interfered with the privacy of a person and can issue compliance notices ordering organisations to comply with the Act.
Whether you're needing advice on any of the below, the expertise is just a call away:
- Privacy policies
- Privacy officers
- Information privacy principles
- Privacy breaches and mandatory breach reporting.
If you think your privacy has been breached, or you're wanting to make sure your business complies with privacy law, we're here to help.
