NZLII's privacy policies are based on respect for international standards of information privacy protection.

A. Information concerning usage of NZLII

A1. NZLII collects information which identifies, for each page accessed on NZLII, the network identity of the machine which has accessed it. NZLII retains this usage information for purposes of network analysis, usage analysis, and research into usage patterns for the purpose of improving NZLII services. Access to and use of this information is restricted to NZLII management and staff, and to researchers working on NZLII projects and subject to an agreement to adhere to this Privacy Policy.

A2. NZLII does not disclose or publish information which identifies individual machines,or potentially identifying sub-groupings of addresses, without consent. NZLII does publish aggregated information about usage patterns.

A3. NZLII reserves the right to gather more extensive information that stated above (i) about any attempted access to NZLII which raise security issues (and, where necessary, to make disclosures to relevent authorities); and (ii) for network analyses on an occasional basis.

B. Personal information contained in NZLII databases

B1. Some NZLII databases contain personal information, including the decisions of Courts and Tribunals, and the reports of Royal Commissions. NZLII publishes these databases with the consent of the public bodies concerned. It is the responsibility of the public bodies which provide these databases to NZLII to determine, subject to the requirements of the laws under which they operate, the appropriate balance between the privacy interests of individuals and the public interests in dissemination of the information. In particular, if personal data is to be anonymised before publication, this is done by the public body concerned. NZLII does not and can not censor part or all of the information provided by these public bodies for publication.

B2. NZLII does not consent to the contents of these databases being indexed by other web sites. NZLII attempts to prevent such indexing occurring by placing these database outside the permitted scope of web 'crawlers', 'robots' or 'spiders' that adhere to the voluntary Robot Exclusion Standard

NZLII also monitors whether any robots attempt to index these databases in disregard of this Standard, and takes steps to exclude any that do so from any access to NZLII.

B3. NZLII users should note that there are legal limitations on the use, publication and dissemination of some personal information contained in NZLII databases.

NZLII reserves the right to exclude access to its databases by users or sites that are in apparent breach of any such legal requirements.
