Tauākī Pūataata Transparency Statement

Transparency Statement for Information Collection

This transparency statement explains how we collect, use and share information gathered about members of the public or other entities (directly or indirectly) in accordance with the Information Gathering Model Standards issued by the State Services Commission (SSC).

Te Ara Ahunga Ora Retirement Commission does not have any law enforcement responsibilities and does not gather any information for this purpose. We do have a monitoring function under the Retirement Villages Act 2003. Click here to see how we gather and use information under this function.

The security of our information is managed in compliance with the Privacy Act 2020, the Official Information Act 1982 and the Public Records Act 2005. The information we hold is used only for the purpose for which it is collected.

However, if we have serious concerns regarding potential threats to the physical security of staff, or the security of information or places, we will engage an appropriate authority such as the NZ Police.

Should we identify a need to gather information in scope of the SSC model standards in future, we will comply with Information Gathering Model Standards, and update this transparency statement.

This statement applies to information gathered by us, our contractors, or any other third parties engaged by us.
