Our general privacy protections apply to how we use safety cameras. However, we’ve prepared a privacy impact assessment (PIA) to make sure we have suitable privacy protections in place.

We’re working with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner and will update our PIA at every stage, including where we test or introduce new types of safety cameras or functionalities.
These assessments also outline in which situations we might have to share information (for example, when the law says the NZ Police can access certain data).
We’ll continue to communicate with independent privacy advocates, to keep improving how we understand the effects of safety camera technology on privacy.
