CCTV Privacy Notice
Auckland Unlimited has installed closed circuit Television (CCTV) cameras in some of our venues to monitor for any unwanted or unsafe activity. In accordance with the Privacy Act 1993, Auckland Unlimited must ensure that these CCTV cameras do not unnecessarily impact on our visitors’ privacy.
This privacy notice will set out:
- what information is being collected
- the purpose of the information’s collection
- whether we intend to pass this on to others, and who they may be
- whether the collection of this information is authorised or required under a particular law
- the rights of the individual to access and correct the information

What information is being collected?
What is the purpose of the information collection?
Auckland Unlimited is taking steps to ensure the safety and security of our staff and visitors, as well as making sure that our venues are prevented from damage in any way. We view CCTV cameras as a means to carry out these steps with minimal imposition on our visitors. It is also paramount that our staff are safe and secure when working at our venues. The CCTV cameras are a way to help achieve that objective. We may use this footage when conducting internal investigations relating to staff or visitor complaints.
Is collection of this information authorised or required under a particular law?
As the owner and/or operator of the venues it is our right to install and operate the CCTV cameras in our properties.
What rights do individuals have to access and correct the information?
Any individual who is recorded by our CCTV cameras has the right to access that footage and to make any corrections so long as that information relates to that individual. These are principles of the Privacy Act 1993. The length of storage of footage may vary from complex to complex and so there is no guarantee that this information will still be held by Auckland Unlimited at the time the individual wants access. The individual has no right to access footage that does not relate to the individual.
