Access to and correction of personal information

- Any person is entitled to contact us at any time to confirm whether or not we hold personal information about that person and if so, to correct that information. If we refuse to provide the person with access or to correct the personal information held about that person by us, then we will provide reasons for such refusal in accordance with New Zealand privacy legislation.
