I agree that the New Zealand Hague Collective (“the Collective”) may collect, use, share, process, manage and store personal information from me about myself and from any source considered by the Collective to be necessary and reasonably appropriate for the purposes of assisting me.

I understand the Collective collects, uses, shares, processes, manages and stores information in compliance with the requirements of any legislation including the Privacy Act 2020 and the Family Courts Act 1980 and recognize that there may be further limitations on the Collective’s ability to receive, use or rely on any information that may include private information about any other person.

Where the Collective collects, uses, shares, processes, manages and stores information, I agree the Collective may do so for the purpose of assisting me in compliance with the Information Privacy Principle in section 22 of the Privacy Act 2020.

The Collective may, in its discretion, use this information, and disclose this information to any relevant person or persons, to:

  1. Access support services for me; and

  2. To inquire as to the availability of legal assistance for me.

I acknowledge I may contact the Collective to request access to any information held about me and to amend any errors in that information, however the Collective reserves its right not to release such information in full if it may be withheld under sections 49-53 of the Privacy Act 2020 or if sections 54-55 of the Privacy Act 2020 apply.
