Wilson Parking

Ted Ciurlionis made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

The request was successful.

From: Ted Ciurlionis

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

I know that Wilson Parking is sanctioned by gazetted regulations to obtain details of the registered owners of motor vehicles.

But clearly they are not sanctioned to disclose personal information to a third party, such as a debt collection agency. This is clearly in breach of the Privacy Act. How are Wilson Parking able to carry out this unlawful activity with the blessing of the NZTA.

Their first action in placing an 'infringement notice' on a vehicle is surely misleading and deceptive conduct, in that the notice is clearly designed to give the impression it comes from a legally sanctioned enforcement agency.

I also note under the gazette notice that there are rather strict conditions imposed on Wilson Parking re staff access to the database and training and the requirement of an annual report submitted to NZTA by May 1 each year.

Can you confirm

- the date of the last audit that was done of Wilson Parking to confirm their compliance

- that annual reports were furnished each year from the time of the gazetted notice, including the one due 1 May, 2016.

A copy of this correspondence is being forwarded to the office of the Privacy Commissioner.

Yours faithfully,
Ted Ciurlionis

Interesting response. I would suggest you could now ask for the following:
- A copy of any documentation held that records that the Wilson Parking's Annual Report for the past 5 years were checked against Gazette requirements including the date of the check and confirmation that the report was/was not compliant with the Gazette.
- copies of the Wilson Annual reports to the NZTA for the past 5 years including a copy of the report due 1 May 2016.

I would also recommend you ask for these in electronic form.
