Privacy of Tenants

David Burgess made this Official Information request to Housing New Zealand Corporation

The request was refused by Housing New Zealand Corporation.

From: David Burgess

Dear Housing New Zealand Corporation,

This is a request under the official information act.

Much has been made recently of the accidental release of personal information by government departments.

I am interested in cases where the release is not accidental, rather the information is released deliberately.

My questions are :

(1) What personal information does the Housing Corporation hold on its tenants ?

(2) Does the Corporation share any information on its tenants with any other agencies, if so whom ?

(3) Does the corporation send information on tenants to Veda Advantage or any other credit agency, and if so, may tenants "opt - out" of this data sharing ?

(4) Does the corporation ever provide finance companies, debt collect agencies or other agencies with personal information or address data on its tenants ? If so how many releases were made in the last year ?

(5) Who has requested personal information on tenants from the corporation ?

(6) When a tenant leaves corporation housing is their personal information retained ?

Thank you

Yours faithfully,

David Burgess
