Data Protection and Use Policy

This guidance is a good option for anyone who works directly with service users or communities.

The Data Protection and Use Policy (DPUP) describes what ‘doing the right thing’ looks like when you collect or use people’s personal information. DPUP is for all New Zealanders, particularly agencies and the people who use their services. It focuses on the people behind the information, and shows how to build respectful, trusted and transparent relationships with them.

Here are a range of helpful guides about how to best use DPUP.
