Our Transparency Report details how we share domain name holder personal information with third party agencies and domain name suspension numbers.  


Each year we release the Domain Name Commission Transparency Report to help the public understand how we handle their privacy and requests for .nz registration data. 


As a Wellington, New Zealand-based charity, we must under New Zealand law provide information to law enforcement agencies.  


These requests generally are handled in two ways– a production order or a request under principle 11(e) of the Privacy Act 2020 which permits us to release information to ‘maintain the law’.
