Simply Privacy contributes to APAC research on consent

Our Principal and Director Daimhin Warner recently provided expert assistance to an Asia Business Law Institute + Future of Privacy Forum joint research project on the status of consent as a lawful basis for processing personal information in the APAC region. The full report for NZ – Status of Consent for Processing Personal Data (New Zealand) – outlines how consent (‘authorisation’ in NZ speak) features in the Privacy Act 2020, or rather how much it doesn’t feature when compared with other laws.
