Privacy Law – advising business clients 2020 - 15 September 2020 (On Demand)


Privacy law obligations permeate every aspect of a business’ operations. Given the huge proportion of New Zealand businesses that trade on the internet, as lawyers we need to be aware of the obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) when our clients are selling to customers in the EU, as well as the new requirements of NZ’s own Privacy Act 2020 which comes into force later this year.
This webinar will discuss the key requirements of the GDPR and compare them to those of NZ’s new Privacy Act 2020. In particular, the following topics will be covered:

  • When will a NZ business come within the scope of the GDPR?
  • When is consent needed to process personal data?
  • How do you deal with data breaches?
  • How to be compliant when dealing with overseas third parties who will have access to personal data?
  • What information should go in a Privacy Policy?
  • What rights do individual customers have?
