GDPR, CCPA, and similar privacy legislation and regulations

The EC issued a formal decision recognizing New Zealand’s legal standards as being sufficient for Article 25(2) of European Union (EU) Directive 95/46/EC: that is that New Zealand’s law provides an ‘adequate level of data protection’. The shorthand often used is that New Zealand has ‘EU adequacy’ or is ‘an adequate third country’. While 1000minds’ compliance with New Zealand’s privacy legislation is therefore sufficient, it is expected that New Zealand’s privacy legislation will continue to be developed and align more and more closely with the GDPR. 1000minds is continuing to improve its alignment with the principles of both New Zealand legislation and the GDPR.

You are the controller of any data, including personal data, that you collect using 1000minds. 1000minds is the processor of such data, except when you act as a processor or sub-processor of the data, in which case 1000minds is a sub-processor. If you are not the controller of the data, you warrant that your appointment, and that of 1000minds, has been authorized by the relevant controller.
