Data Collected

James Bryant made this Official Information request to National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for James Bryant to read recent responses and update the status.

From: James Bryant

Dear National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa,

I am writing to you as I would like to know what data is collected from users when using both library computers on the Aotearoa Peoples Network Kaharoa and free WiFi. I have a couple of questions I would love answered.

1. Are MAC addresses recorded when using your own device connected to the APNK WiFi?

2. Are keyloggers running on any of the library computers - either internally or remotely?

3. Are any passwords entered on the network recorded?

4. Does the APNK or National Library of New Zealand record browsing history?

5. Does the APNK or National Library of New Zealand share data collected from its users (if it does collect data that is) with other government agencies? EG: Department of Internal Affairs, New Zealand Police, Inland Revenue, Work and Income, New Zealand Security Intelligence Service.

6. Do any government agencies have remote access to watch computers in real time using Remote Frame Buffer protocol (RFB) software such as VNC Viewer or similar?

I think it is wonderful that the government provides computers the public can freely access. However, I am concerned when using them what personal data of mine is recorded.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

James Bryant
